SPONSOR: Phil Hues, Built Environment Leader -Aurecon Australasia Pty Ltd
I am a Senior Structural Engineer and the Regional Design Lead for Aurecon for the Department of Defence Program. Noteworthy projects I have been involved in include the iconic Perth Arena where I was a key member of the structural design team and my role in Christchurch working on the rebuilding works following the devastating Canterbury earthquakes. In 2016 I was awarded the Young Professional Engineer of the Year (Western Australia) by Engineers Australia, and was an award winner at the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Crystal Vision Awards for Excellence, WA Chapter, in 2013. I volunteer as a coordinator for the Engineers Australia EngTalk program, and I am a committee member on both the Engineers Australia Division Committee WA, and the Property Council Future Directions Committee. My passion is to help develop and inspire the next generation of engineers; especially females, and those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
