Regional Senior Principal - Bridge Engineering
Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Greatest professional achievement?
Working on the Legacy Way project, Brisbane. Besides the main structural design, we designed the temporary works for launching and extraction of the Tunnel Boring Machines. Innovative solutions and collaboration with the tunnelling contractor led to speedy, record breaking tunnel construction.
How is it making a difference?
A quick tunnel construction resulted in an optimised overall program and we delivered the project to the community on time. This success also fostered relationships in our team.
What is your technical expertise?
My technical expertise is structural / bridge engineering while integrating complex structural engineering into civil projects. This includes the collaboration with other disciplines like geotechnical, hydrology and road / civil design.
What makes you tick?
My most important goals are opening up opportunities for my team and Cardno to work on exciting projects and to combine this effort with my family life. Ultimately, it is the legacy to help to make life a little better for individuals and communities.
Cardno provides me with the opportunity to take up challenges and strive to work on interesting projects. A differentiator is Cardno’s work on international development, which creates improvement for communities in emerging markets.
What do you do to relax?
Non-technical reading, cycling, swimming and baking sourdough bread.
Any other wise words?
My motto is "Treat others like you want to be treated."
