Cardno’s fire safety expert contributes to safer infrastructure and buildings in Australia
Bruce Watson, Team Leader – Hydraulics and Fire, has accepted an invitation to join the technical management committee on Fire Safety Engineering (FSE) Project, being undertaken by The Warren Centre for Advanced Engineering at the University of Sydney.
Bruce was invited by the Warren Centre’s Chairman and Cardno’s consultant, Richard (Dick) Kell, who recently received the Gold Medal Award from the Association of Consulting Structural Engineers (ACSE) for his outstanding and long-term contribution to the structural engineering profession.
The technical management committee on the Fire Safety Engineering Project examines the issues of regulation, control and professionalism in the field of fire safety. Bruce’s role is to provide reviews of their research related to current government enquiries and other more material focussed research. The objective of the Warren Centre’s FSE project is to have Fire Safety Engineering recognised and accredited nationally as a branch of Professional Engineering, thus encouraging innovation and excellence in building designs and addressing fire safety outcomes in new and existing buildings and infrastructure across Australia.
“It is an exciting role and a great honour to be part of a team that is making changes at a national level to make Australian infrastructure and buildings safer,” said Bruce.
