Jim and Todd met while working on the Coffs Harbour Bypass Project. During this time, they saw the need for quality underground utility locating to be joined with survey, design, and project management. This is what gave rise to Absolute Utilities. With the powers of Jim and Todd combined, Absolute Utilities is able to tackle all your utility needs.

Our Experience

Todd has worked in the Telecommunications Industry for nearly 15 years. Starting as an Installation and Maintenance Tech at Telstra and progressing to managing large commercial works projects throughout Sydney. When the then Labour Government decided to bridge the digital divide by building the NBN network, Todd acquired a job at NBN as a Field Engineer which inevitably led to him to moving over to manage large commercial works projects for NBN. In 2021 Todd was approached by a company working for Transport for NSW on the Coffs Harbour Bypass to manage the relocation of the Communications networks.

Jim has worked in the civil construction industry for 17 years. Starting out as a surveyor’s assistant and progressing into a qualified engineering surveyor working on small to large scale infrastructure projects. Jim has had the experience working publicly for local councils and Transport for NSW along with working the majority of his career privately for tier 1 construction companies completing Pacific Highway works. For the majority of projects Jim has been involved in, he has been there from start to finish, and taken on positions ranging from project surveyor, surveillance officer, to senior and survey manager. During Jim’s career he has gained valuable experience with utility relocation works, 3d modelling, and utility designs.
