MEET TEAM TUNGSTEN

Vince Williams Founder | Managing Director

RPEQ NER CPEng MIEAust APEC IntPE(Aust) EC BE (Hons)

Vince embodies drive, determination, hard work and the ability to succeed like no other. Whether it be in his engineering concepts, creating a sustainable business, his CrossFit skills or his unquenchable thirst for personal & leadership development.

With over 14 years’ experience in Structural Engineering, Vince has always embraced creativity, questioned the norms and challenged traditional ways of achieving his end goal.

A bit of a closet nerd, Vince loves to solve complex problems and get his hands dirty in the details. Being born and raised in the Adelaide Hills, he’s passionate about AFL (having also personally played for over 15 years) but in recent times he’s even more passionate about the human brain and learning how to master the mind through meditation.

Suzanne Williams People & Culture Manager

BBM (HR\ER) IECL (L1)

Suz is obsessed with understanding human behaviour, what drives us and ensuring our team are loving life at Tungsten Structures. She’s the keeper of the culture and our sanity check when it comes to all things people.

As a trained HR expert and Executive, Leadership and life coach, you’ll often find Suz seemingly being oh so friendly, but at the same time hitting us right between the eyes asking the tough questions.

In keeping with her vibrant personality, Suz spends her time outside of Tungsten coaching clients through her business Grace & Grind, zenning it out through her yoga practice and spending every hard-earned dollar on her high needs pooch.

Elise McDonald Senior Structural Engineer

NER RPEQ CPEng MIEAust BE (Hons 1)

There are three things that Elise holds near and dear in her life. Precision in her projects; logic and facts that fuel her technical fire; and adventurous days slogging it out through rough terrain on her mountain bike.

Elise is our technical guru at Tungsten Structures and the team go to when it comes to ensuring things are completed to the highest of standards. As Elise would say, “there’s a right way and a wrong way to get the job done, so let’s make sure we do it the right way.”

When Elise isn’t keeping us all on our technical toes, you’ll find her winning gold medals in mountain bike races all over the country and making friends with any doggos she lays her eyes on.

Adam Segrave Senior Structural Site Engineer

RPEQ RPEng BE (Hons)

As Tungsten’s lead Senior Structural Site Engineer, Adam loves to get out and about to see our projects coming to life. An avid people person, Adam thrives on assisting with those nitty gritty on-site problems and helping his clients find practical solutions.

When Adam isn’t on site or working on some of our contemporary new designs, you’ll find him knee deep learning about the latest addition to his homestead. If you have a question about any possible hobby known to man, the chances are Adam can tell you about it. A master of beer brewing, coffee extraordinaire, running a homestead complete with chickens and aquaponics, smoking meats and a self-confessed Subaru fan, there is pretty much nothing Adam can’t do. Oh and did we mention he is a trained chef? Yep he’s our jack of all trades, literally!

Michael King Structural Engineer

BE (Hons 1)

Michael is one of the most patient, conscientious and reliable guys around town. Need someone who will always deliver? Michael is your guy.

Having worked in heavy industry structural engineering for over 5 years, Michael is now spreading his niche expertise across Tungsten building projects. Michael thrives on challenging the status quo and finding the most effective way to get the job done.

A mountain biking and football enthusiast (the soccer kind), as well as a devoted dog Dad to his cavoodle Alfie, Michael has got a breadth of talent, not to mention his freaky ten pin bowling abilities (make sure you ask him sometime).

Julian Chinn Graduate Structural Engineer

BE (Hons)

Julian has a thirst for absorbing all the technical components of Structural Engineering and he certainly adds value to all his projects. He is a team player by every definition, which is not surprising given his cricketing background. As a cricket die hard, he has both coached and played for over 12 years and even took his playing career over to the UK and bashed it out with the best of them in the home of cricket.

Julian’s also an avid country music fan, so you’ll often find him working on his engineering designs while listening to some country beats and in his spare time teaching himself this genre through playing the guitar and the harmonica.

Celfrey Salamanes Tekla Manager

BSE (Phil.) CE Licence (PRC Phil.)

Celfrey is our Tekla expert and honestly one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. With over 14 years’ experience in all things engineering software, he loves to use his advanced technical knowledge to improve team processes and procedures. Celfrey pours his heart and soul into everything he does, from running our Tekla team to teaching the team the latest trends and tricks to make their jobs easier to volunteering for neighbourhood clean ups and education in his local community.

Celfrey is a dedicated family man and is at his happiest when he is spending time with his wife and daughter while cultivating his green thumb tending to his home garden.

Nick Ren Nicholas Tekla Technician

Dip Eng Tech (Phil.) Cert CS (Phil.)

With some well-honed skills in steel detailing and modelling for the international market, Nick is one of our Tekla Technicians. From 3D engineering point to point modelling to preparing 2D structural engineering drawings and details, Nick is what we would call a #teklaguru.

Two big things you need to know about Nick:

1) He’s always ready to lend a hand to get the job done, whatever the job, whatever the task. Nick is the epitome of a team player and most certainly leaves no one behind.

2) He loves getting involved in all things basketball, being a talented player and captain himself and passionate Boston Celtics fan.

Louisa Dyson Operations & Office Manager

Lou is the master organisational ninja and gets her kicks creating a list and ticking those boxes. Her pragmatic prowess is second to none. As our Operations & Office Manager, Lou ensures our office runs like a well-oiled machine while making everyone’s lives easy as she tackles the complex problems that can bog others down.

When Lou’s not keeping team Tungsten in tip top shape, you’ll find her running her own business Alice + Albert, being a supermum and wife and finding a balance between fuelling her wellbeing vibes through her love of TRX and Pilates whilst finding the newest place to eat or drink (yes you can love both wine and exercise!).
