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.”
