Kimber Maddern

Assistant Project Manager

As a Graduate of Architecture, Kimber is passionate about design and the built form, the way people use space and how the fabric of buildings can support and improve the many functions of life and living. Her interest in Project Management stemmed from an overarching view of building delivery; well-designed buildings, built to quality specifics and delivered when they are needed could be the very tool that impacts a child’s education, supports a journey to health and provides dignity to an ailed or ageing person.  

Kimber is motivated by the passion and authenticity Sensum places on socially impactful projects. Working in a collaborative environment where you are able to offer something back to improving life for other in some way presents so many fantastic opportunities for the team and herself professionally and personally.  

Outside of Sensum you will find Kimber in a yoga class, hanging out with friends. Adoring her beloved ‘fur child’ Herbie, wining, and dining…
