Randwick City Council’s Todd Clarke was named the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (IPWEA) Young Engineer of the Year during a conference held in the Hunter Valley last week.
At the same event, Randwick Council also won the Multi-Disciplinary Project Management Award for our work on the Chifley Sports Reserve and was highly commended in the Environmental Enhancement Project or Initiative category for our Seawater and Freshwater Separation for Irrigation at Yarra Bay project.
“These are the top local government infrastructure awards, so to bring home two and be highly commended for a third is a tribute to our dedicated staff,” said Randwick Mayor Lindsay Shurey.
“I’d like to extend particular congratulations to Todd Clarke, who has been with us for 10 years. He is an enthusiastic advocate for local government engineering and has done a lot of great work on some of our biggest capital works projects in that time.
“The Chifley Sports Reserve required staff from a number of disciplines within engineering, architecture and project management to work together to design and construct an amenity building, car park and all-abilities playground. It was a remarkable feat of teamwork to create a great new community facility and one that is highly deserving of this award.
“These awards are a win not just for staff but for the Randwick City community and testament to Council’s continued hard work to improve local facilities for our residents.”
The IPWEA Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts and the finalists represent the industry’s best of the best.
