Engineers Australia has welcomed the appointment of Adrian Piani as the ACT’s first Chief Engineer.


The association has worked closely with the ACT Government to introduce the role and is proud to have contributed to the process.  


Mr Piani will provide strategic advice on projects including Stage Two of the city-wide light rail network, upgrades at the Canberra Hospital precinct and the capital works program in ACT schools. 


Engineers Australia’s ACT General Manager Keely Quinn said the appointment was a major win for the Territory.
“Adrian Piani is a highly respected engineer and consultant, both in the ACT and nationally.  His relationships with industry and universities will position him well for success and we look forward to working with him and the ACT Government,” said Ms Quinn.


“He will be able to work directly with politicians to ensure that strategies, policies and rollout of ACT’s infrastructure are all engineered with the best controls and management of technical risks.”


The appointment of a Chief Engineer is an ACT Labour election commitment.
