Bryce is always happy to learn and take on new challenges. He strives to work hard to complete building tasks to a quality standard and enjoys operating in a team environment. Bryce is also conscious of the changing environment and the need to provide leadership in safety, adapt to more sustainable practices and welcome more industry diversity.
