Meet our Product Trainer – Dominic Gillespie 


Dominic started off as a labourer in the construction industry, working in various roles until he decided to study engineering. His broad skill set has been developed through his heavy involvement in the construction industry, over the past 15 years. For 9 years he was primarily focused in light gauge steel, spending 2 years as a designer, 1 year as research and development engineer and 6 years heading up a research and development team.

Dominic has been the lead designer on large government jobs, designing houses in 3 different continents, commercial offices in the US, and military bases in the middle east. He has designed everything from the structures of a building, to the screw layouts of plasterboard.

Having been on the National Board and National Technical Committee of NASH (National Association of Steelframed Housing), Dominic is highly proficient in the light gauged steel sector of construction. NASH writes standards for the steel framing industry, which are referenced in the national construction code.

He has previously taught classes for steel framing in both TAFE and tech colleges, this role included showing carpentry apprentices the advantages of light gauge steel and how easy it is to work with, as well as a pathway for students to steel framing. 

Being Rondos’ new Product and Training manager, Dominic’s extensive career in the steel industry and experience in the education industry is a highly beneficial combination.
