Hera Director Nominated for 40Under40 Award
Hera Engineering Director Matteo Tirapelle has been named as a nominee for this year’s prestigious 40Under40 awards.
Matteo is delighted that his contribution to sustainable structural design in Australia has been recognised. He is committed to reducing materials in construction to help lower carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere responsible for global warming, and hopes by passing on the savings he is encouraging more designers and developers in the industry to engage in smarter engineering solutions.
Matteo is also a huge advocate for mass timber construction for high rise building and has been the initiator of utilising mass timber for the construction of the 40m high leadlight hotel in Northbridge. Once completed, it will be the tallest timber hotel in the world.
Matteo is looking forward to attending the 40Under40 gala event in March, where winners will be announced – wish him luck!
