Personnel from four of Australasia’s largest infrastructure transport projects will be speaking at ISCA’s WA Infrastructure Sustainability Conference 2018. The one-day conference, in partnership with Forrestfield-Airport Link, Jacobs and AECOM, will take place on 18 July.
Anthony Kannis of Perth’s ambitious public transport rail network, METRONET, will be joined in a panel session with Westport Independent Chair, Nicole Lockwood. Attendees will hear their vision, plans and desired outcomes in connecting WA with transport infrastructure.
Attendees will also hear from keynote speaker Chris Meale, former director of New Zealand’s largest rail project City Rail Link, as well as watch a pre-recorded video presentation from Sydney Metro, who will share insights into Australia’s largest metro rail project.
Dr Steve Lennon, Divisions Vice President of the United Nations of Australia will deliver a keynote presentation on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the context of infrastructure.
The conference also includes a site tour of the $1.86 billion Forrestfield-Airport Link project. Delegates will experience an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the under construction project, which is the first IS rated project within the government’s METRONET program.
Attendees will be among the first to experience the dual-tunnel, and see where more than 60,000 precast concrete segments have been created on-site. Attendees will also view tunnelling activities, including wastewater treatment and a reverse osmosis plant.
The afternoon session will be an interactive workshop session focused on innovation, inspiration and interaction, and includes a variety of topics, such as the circular economy, recycled plastic road materials, transport futures, climate change resilience, and making Perth the most water sensitive city in the world.
In the evening, delegates will enjoy networking drinks to celebrate the official WA launch of the IS Version 2.0 rating tool. The latest innovation of the tool, ISv2.0, provides a quadruple bottom line reporting framework and alignment to delivering the UN SDGs, as well as new themes and categories that equip the industry for the Modern Slavery Act.
The event is suitable for all WA infrastructure stakeholders, including engineers, project managers, designers, sustainability professionals, executives, government officials, students and more.
