Speaker Bio:  Keith Baker

Keith Baker was the recipient of the 2016 John Monash Medal and author of the 2013 book 'A Centenary of Canberra Engineering'.

Keith has worked with both Commonwealth and Territory Government organisations on construction and housing, using his engineering and management skills towards the care of heritage structures and sites.

He has led heritage studies on many subjects. A notable few include : Canberra’s street lighting, the Cotter River dam and pumping station, an interpretation of the Kingston Powerhouse, an assessment of the Canberra Main Outfall Sewer and engineering aspects of Old Parliament House and the Fitters Workshop.

Much of this work has had a direct impact on both the immediate and ongoing conservation of these heritage sites

Keith Baker is a long-time member of Australia ICOMOS and the National Trust of Australia (ACT). He was also a member of the ACT (Government) Heritage Council's Standing Committee on Built Heritage and has played an active role in Engineers Australia’s National Committee on Engineering Heritage, with two terms as National Chair.

 

This project was supported with funding made available by the ACT Government under the ACT Heritage Grants Program.
