Lend Lease apprentice Paul Tran has been named National Apprentice Carpenter of the Year 2012.

Currently working on Lend Lease’s timber building development Forté in Victoria Harbour, Paul said he was thrilled to win the award.

“This award has come at an exciting time in my career as currently I am able to put my carpentry skills to good use in helping to construct Forté,” he said.

“Working with wood is a great passion of mine and it is a privilege to be able to build Australia’s first and soon to be the world’s tallest, residential Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) structure.”

“The opportunity I have received from Lend Lease over the past three years has culminated in this award. With the right balance of practical experience, professional development and mentoring I was able to excel and reach my full potential,” he said.

Paul is employed by MEGT, a Group Training Company, of which Lend Lease is a host employer.

General manager of Lend Lease’s project management and construction in business Victoria, Geoff Moore, said Paul had been an outstanding apprentice and has excelled in all areas.

“With a real passion for building and design, he is a self motivator who takes on tasks and completes them to the highest standard. This is an outstanding achievement and is just the start of what will be a long and rewarding career,” Mr Moore said.
