Permanent Way Institution of New South Wales
The Institution was formed in 1884 in England by a group of dedicated railway people, who felt the need for an avenue for exchange of track design, construction and maintenance. The New South Wales Section was formed in 1974, not only to benefit from those who had gone before, but also to add to the development of still more efficient rail transportation in the years ahead.
The PWI hosted its annual Winter Dinner at Doltone House Hyde Park last Friday 17 June. Members of our MCE Team attended with some of our valued clients. With over 300 guests there was great interaction and networking with railway personnel of varied disciplines, contractors, suppliers and consultants. Add in a fabulous live band, magician, cartoon artist and fun photo booth and it was a fantastic night of socialising and entertainment.
Our MCE Team is helping to support the mental health of Australia.
Since the beginning of June a small (and mighty!) cohort of the MCE Team have taken on the “Push Up Challenge”. We are helping to shine the spotlight on the number of lives lost to suicide in 2020 and raise awareness of mental health. Our aim is to complete as many of the target 3,139 push-ups as possible over 24 days in June to raise awareness and funds for mental health. So far, over 16 days we’ve done over 5,500 push ups between the four of us – and we still have another 8 days to go!
Our chosen charity is LIFELINE, if you would like to support such a worthy cause:
Your donation will go a long way to help fund Lifeline’s crisis support services to ensure no one in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.
Thanks in advance – we would be very grateful!
Three key takeaways from the discussion:
The construction industry desperately needs an image makeover.
We need to reduce hours of work and promote better health and wellbeing.
We need to focus on building more diverse and inclusive teams and cultures.
