The ICE Victorian Local Association (VLA) held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Association on 15 March 2022 (online and in-person) together with a dinner meeting, both were held at Graduate House, University of Melbourne.

The VLA were very pleased that our keynote speaker at the dinner was Mr Marco Assorati, Executive Director, Asia Pacific, at Webuild in Melbourne. After the AGM brief, Marco talked about Webuild’s global and national experience re: successful delivery of complex multidisciplinary engineering infrastructure projects, including PPP, with several case studies.

These illustrated the balance of technical excellence of design inputs alongside agile and smart construction methodology and staging to deliver assets into service for the benefit of all stakeholders and our communities. These case studies were underpinned by the values, culture, and behaviours of Webuild including championing diversity, sustainability, student engagement, professional excellence, local workforce training and development for long term legacy benefits well past the construction handover of these projects.

Marco’s presentation is available to download below.
