“Slattery prides itself on assisting clients to achieve their objectives for each and every project. Dedicated to direct and honest communication, the Slattery team is focused on delivering value for clients throughout Australia.”

Peter Slattery
Founder | Slattery

Slattery was founded in 1976 by Peter Slattery, who left a global QS practice to build his own company, shaped by the underlying principal of an inclusive culture to power creativity and spark innovation. Peter believes that by having a workplace that recognises and nurtures diversity, it cultivates a sense of belonging. This in turn, sustains retention, drives recruitment and creates a profitable, high-performance work environment. This philosophy has contributed to the continued success of Slattery over four decades. Ultimately, it is Slattery’s clients that are the main beneficiaries of this approach.

In 2000, Peter retired as Managing Director, and with his wife Cate Slattery purchased the Terindah Estate Winery with a vision to create the Bellarine Peninsula’s most beautiful food and wine destination, now an award-winning winery.

Slattery has continued to grow, with Josh Slattery at the helm, opening offices in Sydney in 2003, Brisbane 2008 and Perth in 2012 and cost managing many of Australia’s most exciting property and construction projects.

In October 2017, Sarah Slattery was appointed as Managing Director; the first female managing director of any quantity surveying firm in Australia. Slattery is a contemporary, diverse work-force of over 90 staff, with a progressive growth strategy to service a dynamic national property and construction industry.

With an ability to become an integral part of the project team, a commitment to excellence and innovation has earned Slattery the trust and respect of clients and project teams alike. Slattery will add value to the project by taking control and ownership of the cost management process from the outset.

In 2018, Slattery won the PwC Award for Diversity for companies with less than 250 employees at the Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation and Excellence Awards in May. Slattery earned the judges’ applause for building a business with diversity at its heart.

Slattery is committed to conducting business in a sustainable manner and strives to regularly identify, review and assess the environmental impacts of our business operations, and to assist our clients in reducing the environmental impact of their projects. We strive to incorporate quality improvements including sustainable solutions into each of our client’s projects.

We have worked on many award-winning projects that have implemented environmentally sustainable design solutions including Green Star, PassivHaus, WELS, WELL and NABERS rating and certification systems.  In working with design teams to achieve ESD solutions within a project, Slattery research and price various options to enable good decisions to be made that take into account the value and cost of each design feature; allowing transparent discussion on each initiative’s merit and achieving value for money via an integrated design approach.

This is important for any project, contributing to a leading position for Australia in the global move towards sustainable societies.

Slattery will work with clients to further develop sustainability goals and targets for their project and cost assessments of environmental options, allowing them to maximise their sustainability performance.

Slattery has operated a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory in line with ISO 14064 since 2008. This assists us in targeting reductions in our business emissions per employee.

We are currently developing an Environmental Management System (EMS) in line with ISO 14001.

Slattery targets continuous improvement to minimise the environmental impact of our business and has implemented the following measures:

  • identification and adoption of office energy efficiency management practices and technologies
  • a company car share scheme
  • support of staff cycling to work including the provision of shower and changing facilities
  • adoption of inter-office video conferencing where possible to minimise air travel
  • minimisation of office paper usage through double-sided printing and usage benchmarking
  • recycling of office paper and waste
  • review of the environmental credentials of office consumables with priority given to
