Twelve years working experience in civil engineering and environmental management projects
Works well with different teams of varying skills, communicating effectively to manage projects to a timely and cost efficient completion
Performs productively in key roles when liaising with the client and varying sized and specialized contractors to deliver the best output in a contract in a product focused manner
Practical and continuous work evaluating attitude with capacity for research and flexibility for innovating concepts
Current Project 2013 - 2015
On-line Electric Vehicle System (OLEV) by Australian Electric Infrastructure & Transport Company Pty Ltd (AEIT)
Project developed and approved in relation to the application of an innovative technology to save carbon generated via public transport system through direct action, by zero-emission electric buses and/or trams in response to climate change link with carbon emissions towards sustainable development and healthy living.
AEIT proposed to Ipswich City Council (ICC) and Department of Transport and Mains Road (DTMR) to implement a wireless charging infrastructure and operate an electric bus loop service in the Springfield Orion Town Centre area, which will add to Springfield’s reputation of living, working and playing in a sustainable city with a ZERO Emission Public Transport System.
Water Engineering designs and structures, preparation of design drawings and contract documents, field survey confirmation, logistics, cost analysis, and field supervision.
Projects have included:
- Diversion channels
- Coastal and river bank protection for flood protection
- Land drainage and agricultural development
- Land management
- Small dams for flood mitigation and silt trap
- Watershed management
- Climate change Adaptation.
Projects mostly located along the coast and offshore islands. Most projects have required Environmental Impact Assessments for which I have conducted critical technical analysis, revised terms of reference, and residential adaptation proposals
In 2013, I submitted a research paper to Engineers Australia Journal of Water Resources titled "Integrated Water Solutions for a Green Economy via Green Growth" which describes methods of integrated planning and execution of projects, specifically watershed management, targeting water resources in light of flood and drought long term solutions relative to climate change. I was invited to present this research at the World Water Conference 2013 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
