Steve Bird
Laboratory Manager

1. How long have you been with Groundwork Plus?
Groundwork Plus had been a client with my previous employer for 10+ years and I was given the opportunity to start employment with Groundwork Plus at the end of April 2019.

2. What is your role at Groundwork Plus and what does it entail?
My role at Groundwork Plus is the Laboratory Manager of the Brendale facility. My main role is the daily supervision of technicians and the processing of samples through the laboratory to ensure client expectations are met, ensure that all equipment calibrations are up to date and testing is being conducted to the most current test methods.

3. What are your areas of particular interest or your proudest accomplishment?
My proudest accomplishment would have to be playing a big role in the establishment of the Brendale facility and achieving NATA accreditation with very minor issues found.

4. What is your favourite way to spend a weekend?
I spend most weekends with my daughter either fishing, snorkelling, going to the beach or eating some good food, lots and lots of good food.
