Coffey employee Rosanna Petteno wins NAWIC Award for Burberry Flagship



NSW winner of the Award for Achievement in Construction

Rosanna Petteno, employee of global professional services consultancy Coffey International Limited (“Coffey”) has been announced as the NSW winner of the Award for Achievement in Construction, Refurbishment and Fitout as part of the 2011 National Association of Women in Construction Awards for Excellence.

Rosanna, a Project Manager for Coffey Projects, is being recognised for her work on Burberry’s new Sydney flagship retail store and new office accommodation at 343 George Street. The visually stunning $6 million development represents a makeover of huge proportions, and successfully maintained heritage elements of the former bank site – the project included restoration and re-instatement of the heritage fabric - with a modern, high-end fitout.

The award acknowledges exceptional processes, with criteria including: contribution to the project, quality of the construction outcomes, application of innovation and active cost management.

Tony Carroll, Coffey Projects Manager NSW/ACT, commented: “Rosanna is to be commended on winning this award for her successful management of the Burberry project. It was a high profile project which required the management of multiple stakeholders, including an overseas client, heritage considerations and met a very tight timeframe.

“Rosanna demonstrated a commitment and passion to deliver positive outcomes within the project, providing valuable recommendations, communicating effectively with all stakeholders and providing design and construction guidance through the process. The success of the project was testament to this commitment and dedication.”

Opened to rapturous acclaim, the project was delivered within budget and was highly praised by Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry’s UK head office, “We are so proud of the store, which combines the full Burberry product offering with the very latest in digital technology and great customer service, giving our shoppers in the city an unrivalled brand and luxury experience.”

Rosanna has worked at Coffey Projects for four and a half years and has completed a Bachelor of Design (Interior Design) and a Diploma of Urban Estate Management, both at the University of Technology, Sydney.
