Cardno joins Committee for Brisbane’s Brisbane 2033: Olympics and Paralympics Legacy Taskforce
The city of Brisbane, home of Cardno’s global headquarters in Australia, is facing formidable challenges, both planned and unexpected. Confronting the impacts of COVID-19 is critical to Brisbane’s recovery and future growth.
The city is also preparing its bid to host the biggest and most exciting event the region has seen since Expo ’88, the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics.
The Committee for Brisbane, an independent, not-for-profit organisation committed to progressing Brisbane, has recognised the need for coordinated efforts to address challenges and opportunities associated with legacy planning with the formation of the Brisbane 2033: Olympics and Paralympics Legacy Taskforce.
We are proud to contribute with Robbie Marshall, APAC Operations Manager, lending Cardno’s expertise and experience to lead Cardno’s contribution to the Brisbane 2033: Olympics and Paralympics Legacy Taskforce.
The Taskforce has been formed to help develop and advocate for policy initiatives and infrastructure projects to deliver enduring economic, environmental, social and cultural dividends to build a thriving, inclusive, resilient and sustainable community for the region if successful in its bid to host the games.
Working with a collective group of contributors from different backgrounds, Robbie will utilise his experience delivering greater infrastructure outcomes for both metropolitan and regional communities across North West Australia, backed by the global multidisciplinary expertise Cardno has within this space.
“The collaborative approach with input from a diverse collective of passionate experts will ensure Brisbane progresses as a global city,” Robbie said.
“I am excited to be contributing towards Brisbane’s recovery and planning around the city’s ongoing urban development and planning should we play host to the games in 2032.
“Collaborating with this select group will help to deliver a post-games plan to allow the region to leverage off what is being delivered for the games for future growth and prosperity.”
Helping to support and progress the region during and after some of its toughest and most exciting times has played an enormous role in Cardno’s story – it’s the reason why our founders Harold Davies and Gerry Cardno established our business 75 years ago.
