Earlier this week, our Associate Director, Johan Venter, a distinguished Fellow of the Southern African ICE (SAICE), organized an exceptional “Virtual” Site Visit to the Sydney Metro. The event attracted 200 passionate engineers from Africa.

Supported by MCE’s Director, Thomas Lee, and Senior Design Manager, Annabella Dao, this immersive experience provided a unique opportunity for attendees to gain valuable insights into the world-class Sydney Metro project.

Annabella Dao, a talented civil engineer and currently Design Manager for Stations, Boxes & Tunnelling (SBT) on the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport project, shared her personal career journey, shedding light on the opportunities and challenges faced by young professionals in the dynamic environment of the Sydney Metro.

Johan Venter, a South African civil engineer living and working in Sydney, introduced participants to the remarkable transportation system of Sydney and highlighted the local construction realities that he has encountered in our vibrant city.

Thomas Lee then took centre stage to present the Sydney Metro project, widely regarded as the largest transport infrastructure endeavour in the Southern Hemisphere. His captivating presentation focused on the challenges and valuable lessons learned during the construction of the City and Southwest sections.

The virtual site visit featured exclusive construction videos, carefully curated with formal approval from Sydney Metro, showcasing the impressive progress and innovative techniques employed on this monumental project.

The feedback from the 200 participating engineers was overwhelmingly positive, describing the virtual site visit as “exciting, valuable, informative, and inspiring.”

Managing infrastructure carbon – new global standard PAS2080

Design, MCE News

PAS2080 is the newly revised global standard for managing infrastructure carbon which will be a key enabling tool for carbon reduction.  This standard outlines collaboration, quantifying and reducing the whole life of carbon and understanding the impact across the whole lifecycle from procurement through delivery to end of life.  Our director, Matt Colton, will be presenting a paper at Engineers Australia later this year (2023).

This Low Carbon Concrete Routemap is an urgent part of the overall strategy to reduce carbon emissions. Concrete is the most ubiquitous of construction materials. In the UK it accounts for approximately 1.2% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, although globally the cement production GHG emissions associated with concrete utilisation could be as high as 4.0%-5.0%.  This Routemap can be considered not just as a comprehensive guide to reducing the carbon emissions associated with the construction industry, but also as a unique document in itself – never before have we been able to assemble such a wide range of independent experts working together to tackle this, each of whom has volunteered their time willingly. They represent a full cross-section of the value chain involved in specifying, designing, constructing and supplying materials for buildings and infrastructure. The Routemap sets out recommendations and actions to drive out carbon from concrete. It has been published jointly by the Green Construction Board and the Institution of Civil Engineers to ensure ongoing ownership, commitment and drive.
