John Mummery

    Buildings & Facilities Manager

    Back to Our People

    With 35 years experience in the building industry at huge places such as The University of Melbourne, John Mummery was snapped up at the beginning of the work to revive the Abbotsford Convent. Eleven years on and he’s still here working away to keep the site and buildings active, as he plans how to best renovate the remaining unrestored spaces. From his perspective, seeing how successful the site is now and watching how it has all grown are highlights of working here. After an early morning start (trades people always start early!), John thoroughly enjoys one of Dom’s lasagnas from the Convent Bakery for lunch. Then, after a few more hours of hard work around site, it’s off to the MCG, the ski slopes or the couch to watch 'Grand Designs'.
