Our Managing Director, Matteo Tirapelle, was honoured to have achieved the WA Finalist award from Engineers Australia Excellence Awards in Sydney.
“Tonight I have the honor to attend to the Engineers Australia Excellence Awards gala dinner in Sydney. I have arrived in Sydney yesterday and have been enjoying visiting this incredible city which great heritage and beautiful buildings.
I will represent Western Australia in the final for the national award. It has been extremely overwhelming to have won WA Professional Engineer of the year and tonight I wish all the other candidate the very best and may the best win.
When I arrived in Australia 16 years ago I would never thought to achieve these type of goals, however it is a demonstration that Australia is the land of opportunity and with vision you can get very far. Think differently and challenge yourself to drive change provide very exciting opportunities. This is what drive me every day at work.
Thank you to my incredible team at Hera Engineering for the passion that they demonstrate every and for the culture to push the boundary and challenge the status quo that we have all embraced.
In 7 years we have achieve together some pretty incredible milestones and we have delivered much more sustainable structures by permanently reducing the embodied carbons of major buildings by reducing material through innovation and clever design.
I look forward to the gala dinner tonight and enjoy this unique life experience” – Matteo Tirapelle
