Project Managing The Pavilion
Bill Caldicott & Bill Southwood
Bill Southwood (B2) and Bill Caldicott (B1) under the Sound Shell
Around Four Winds, they are known affectionately as B1 and B2.
Together, Bill Caldicott (B1) and Bill Southwood (B2) both volunteer as project managers for building Nature's Concert Hall. They brought the Sound Shell in on time and on budget, and now turn their attention to delivering The Pavilion.
Despite their professional expertise being in very different fields, B1 and B2 share a practical and philosophical commitment to the environment and a similarly principled approach to their high achieving careers. The two met at Clean Energy For Eternity, the Bega-based community group championing renewable energy. Bill Southwood set up the Bermagui chapter of the organisation.
A pediatric radiologist with eleven years experience at Harvard Medical School and a career in medicine in Adelaide and Boston spanning two decades, Bill Caldicott became a farmer twenty years ago. For ten of those years he was a dairy farmer in the Bega Valley. He is a passionate advocate for renewable energy and sustainability in agriculture.
As a consultant to global engineering company Arup, Bill Southwood has designed and managed telecommunications networks for the financial sector in the UK, airports around the world and the Barcelona Olympics, adapting buildings to new information systems technology to keep pace with rapid change. He is also an advisor to the governments of Australia and New Zealand on governance, probity, and stakeholder management in the awarding of information technology contracts for major projects.
Both skilled communicators with an open and consultative style, B1 and B2 liaised constantly with the Board and architects Philip Cox for the Sound Shell and now with Clinton Murray for the second stage of developing Nature's Concert Hall, The Pavilion, to be completed by Easter 2014.
