rediconOUR TEAM

The team at DAVD have a common passion for Technology. We are proudly surrounded by experts in our field, and continually share and pool knowledge to deliver the optimum result.

We have a resourcing approach to only have a single member of DAVD as the contact per project, with additional resources allocated in the background. This is not only for performing the design stages but also through the supervision stages until project completion.

David Shaw – Director (Aged Care Technology Specialist)

davidshawDavid Shaw has always been passionately involved with Technology Systems.

At age 9, he was responsible for the school AV system, and during high school, had the volunteer role of “ICT Administrator” (before the term was even used).

This interest evolved through tertiary studies in both Electrical & Computer Systems Engineering with additional study in cross faculty subjects including Project Management, Adult Training, and Communications. This resulted with a personal recommendation from the engineering faculty’s Head of School.

After graduation, he was employed in challenging, Medical, Military, Audio Visual, Communications and Hospitality Technology Engineering roles. He was responsible for the management of solution delivery teams, being a combination of infrastructure installers, technicians, commissioning engineers and automation programmers.

Founding DAVD Consulting Engineers in 2000, to address the need for specialist Design Consultants who identify with their Clients’ vision, while simultaneously becoming the conduit to the ultra-technical Contractor.

With experience, he discovered that his passion was in providing the attention-to-detail solutions needed for highly integrated and coordinated designs. This was most valued where he was part of the team where both the Developer & Operator were the same Client. This was most compatible in the Aged Care and Assisted Living industry, and over the past 10 years is where his energy is focused.

In this independent role, David has the freedom to be product agnostic. He is fortunate to be in the perfect position from which to choose the most up to date “proven technologies” and connectivity combinations to provide an optimum solution for every Client.

His understanding of the contracting industry means that his released documentation imparts his Clients’ requirements precisely, so contractors make a fair profit on their submission, with no need to exaggerate their offerings to factor risk of misinterpretation of the Consultant brief. Through this planning, many of his projects result in being completed variation free.
