MEET OUR MANAGING DIRECTOR
Managing Director of Progenia, Scott Redwood, is a multiple-award winning operator in sustainable design and construction.
Scott is backed by a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Civil) from the University of Wollongong (2009) and a Master’s of Project Management from the University of Sydney (2011). He is studying his Masters by Research (Sustainable Design and Development), at the Sustainable Buildings Research Centre, University of Wollongong—one of the world’s top 1 per cent of universities.
As part of his scholarship work, Scott was hand-picked for the team that built the international award-winning Illawarra Flame House. He was the team’s design, construction, logistics, and work health and safety manager. This was the first Australian team to enter a Solar Decathlon. To win, the team’s work was judged against 10 strict criteria. Scott’s team scored more points than any other Solar Decathlon team has ever won.
After completing his engineering degree, Scott worked for a large building contractor on designing and constructing large-scale commercial projects, including a medical centre and shopping centre tested against the Green Star rating system. In the commercial world, he was also involved in projects tested against the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system, used in 30 countries internationally.
Although these rating systems are designed for commercial contexts, Scott overlays his valuable knowledge to his work in the domestic market. Within this market Scott also applies best-practice, adopting the energy modelling software recognised by the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme and cutting-edge LCADesign software, developed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation to analyse the life-cycle impact of your home.

Sustainable building is a broad and complex concept. It means addressing thousands of decisions in a sustainable way, applying a holistic approach. This includes harmonising important financial, social and environmental objectives.
Structural engineering allow your home to be durable, strong and, most importantly, safe. At Progenia, we consider structural design to be a key aspect of overall design, and so considerit at concept stage. A well structurally designed building should perform, but be hidden within the building’s fabric.
Meeting multiple regulations, legal requirement and managing Council, development application submissions and all other approval processes is an area of expertise in its own right. Without proper approvals and sign-offs, a project is at risk of blowing out.
With our construction management experience, Progenia effectively manages cost planning so homes are designed and constructed to high standards, while remaining on-time and on-budget. We reduce service costs by handling the bulk of the work in-house, while bridging the gap between design decisions and construction costs.
Progenia is expert at construction management, which means risks associated with your project are dramatically reduced and well managed. We deliver truly sustainable homes by managing the complete process, in finite detail, from start to finish, in-house.
This is one of Progenia’s strengths. Managing Director Scott Redwood has extensive experience in large-scale, multi-million dollar commercial buildings that are sustainable through and through. Through Progenia, he applies his well-developed project management skills to the domestic market.
We have worked on and delivered many successful, and truly sustainable building projects. Our involvement ensures their success by covering all components of their delivery.
