On April 27th, the John Shaw Dinner took place at the magnificent Sydney Town Hall and was attended by some of the most accomplished engineering professionals. Members of our team had the opportunity to celebrate excellence in the engineering industry at what is widely regarded as the most prestigious event on the Roads Australia calendar.
The John Shaw Dinner provides a fantastic chance to reinforce relationships and expand our network with other professionals, ultimately leading us to strategic connections. Additionally, the industry celebrated the 28th recipient of the distinguished John Shaw Medal – Dr Charles MacDonald.
The award recognises Dr MacDonald’s lasting contribution to Australia’s integrated transport network and his exceptional contributions to the engineering industry. Dr MacDonald is widely recognised as a leading figure in the Australian civil construction industry in both the private and public sectors. He has worked as a chartered civil engineer for fifty years, delivering road infrastructure in Australia and in overseas locations including the UK, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia.
It was an honour for us to be connected with so many accomplished professionals on such a special night.

Get behind our Group Managing Director Colin Calderwho is braving the cold to experience homelessness for the CEO Sleepout in Sydney on 20 June 2019.
Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This year our Group Managing Director is taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. For one night, he’ll be sleeping outside as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness. One would think, hailing from Scotland he won’t have too many issues with the cold, but Colin has been in Australia for over ten years and become accustomed to our beautiful Sydney weather and the luxuries of ducted heating.
To help Colin and the St Vincent de Paul Society break the devastating cycle of homelessness, Colin needs your support for the CEO Sleepout. Donating 55 dollars will feed a family for a day and make a huge difference to people who need it most. Every donation made in the next 48 hours will be matched by Vinnie’s Sleepout sponsors so click this link now and help reduce homelessness in Australia. Your support is very much appreciated by Colin, the St Vincent de Paul Society and people who are homeless in Australia.
