John Paton_Mono_300x375

John’s experience in the construction & fitout, commercial, industrial and retail industries spans over 26 years and has included in-depth involvement in design, project and contract management protocols. This has provided valuable background knowledge for his involvement in the development of both external construction and interior fitout projects for FDC.

Joining FDC in 1996 after many years of design and project management across many industries, John was responsible for new business development and converting those opportunities to contract stage, as was his key role. With further development of the FDC Group, John’s role has broadened to include a strategic role in design development and the management of an existing client base.

John provides new and existing clients a direct contact to assist and steer them through the often difficult process of finalising a brief, layout, architectural and engineering design, specifications and program and budget. John works with established procedures and formats to produce excellent, agreeable results.

John has since become the Project Director of FDC’s boutique sub-brand, FDCnow. The company’s solution to the challenge of fast-track commercial fitout and commercial projects, FDCnow is an all-inclusive service that targets fitout and refurbishment projects up to 1,000sqm.

John is a meticulous and cautious documenter, who leverages his keen eye for detail and construction feasibility to ensure that each project is delivered to the client’s requirements. He is also committed to project satisfaction through comprehensive pre-construction coordination. John’s modus operandi is to ensure a harmonious relationship between client, design consultants, regulatory authorities and delivery team.
