Root Partnerships welcomes Martin Fenn

Root Partnerships welcomes Martin Fenn to the team as a Project Director in the Sydney office.

Root Partnerships’ Managing Director Peter Root says, “Martin joins us with a wealth of experience in the school sector, and prior to that housing, with a particular focus on Design for Manufacture and Assembly [DfMA].”

Martin has recently been working on School Infrastructure NSW’s DfMA pilot program delivering their first modular school, Jordan Springs Public School.

Beginning his career in the UK, Martin’s work on prefabricated housing projects helped inform his knowledge and skill in developing strategies for managing and delivering modular construction programs.

“We’re thrilled to have Martin on board,” says Peter. “His significant experience in delivering innovative Education projects, together with his expertise in DfMA, complements our team’s already significant work in the Education sector.”

Root Partnerships’ Education project team, led by Director Matthew Curnow and Associate Director David Wiles, is currently delivering the high-profile Inner Sydney High School development and the Fort Street Public School upgrade.

Martin’s other notable school projects include:

  • Alex Avenue Public School
  • East Leppington Public School
  • Wagga Wagga Public School
  • Cammeraygal High School Senior Campus
  • Curl Curl North Public School

Currently leading a DfMA webinar series with the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), Martin has been looking at an array of Modern Methods of Construction with international leaders in the field, and their integration with modular building methodologies.

“Root Partnerships is always looking ahead to the changing development practices within the built environment,” says Peter. “With his enthusiasm and in-depth knowledge of modern construction methodologies, Martin is a great asset to our team.”
