Recently, Warwick determined that due to his failing health and very limited treatment options, he would leave hospital and return home for his final days to be cared for by his family and loved ones. Warwick peacefully passed away late Sunday evening on the 24th April 2022.

Following a ten (10) plus year association with A.G. Coombs through his role as a Design Engineer including his role as a Director of International Consultancy, Lincolne Scott, Warwick commenced with A.G. Coombs Pty Ltd on 3rd March 2003 in a newly created role of Group Engineering Manager.

Warwick was also trusted with developing the early growth of A.G. Coombs Advisory and was instrumental in the development of Independent Commissioning Agent services for many of Australia’s early leading Green Star projects. Taking up the role of Group Engineering Manager and responsible for technical standards and innovative initiatives where he was a key driving force behind A.G. Coombs pioneering work in large scale off-site prefabrication of building services. Passionate about professional development and the potential of young people, Warwick was responsible for the technical leadership and professional development of A.G. Coombs engineering and technical staff.

With a strong background in both consulting and contracting, Warwick was a primary instigator of the world leading BIM-MEPAUS initiative in 2010 that digitised the design and delivery of building services in Australia, and as long time Technical Director, he was been pivotal in its ongoing development and influence.

Warwick is strongly recognised for his work over many years in the development of innovative industry standards, practices and workflows, and a frequent contributor to industry journals and conferences, sharing ideas, and driving change and industry development.

In 2021, Warwick was awarded the Airconditioning and Mechanical Contractors Association’s (AMCA) Distinguished Service Award.

We acknowledge Warwick’s wonderful contribution over his nineteen (19) year career with the Company, as well as the tremendous courage he displayed whilst dealing with his health issues. Somehow through the side effects of associated treatments, short term remissions, and further discoveries, Warwick continued to rally and make an amazing contribution to his team, the Company, clients and the Industry as a whole.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Warwick’s wife Helen, their children Marshall, Zo-Ellen and Digby as well as their families at this very difficult time.

Our thoughts are also with many of you who are great friends and work colleagues of Warwick.

Warwick is forever in our hearts and fondly remembered by all.
