Who is David Sugden?
David Sugden was the driving force behind the successful design of mechanical full-face rock excavation machinery over a number of years, resulting in the forging of countless tunnels across the world. David continually showed a commitment to innovation and design throughout his career, often custom making machinery to solve problems that arose and for which no existing devices were available or appropriate. As a result of this attitude, David is listed as the inventor on over 40 patents.
David was been recognised for his contribution to tunnelling and the mentoring of young engineers involved in the field, with the Allen Neyland Tunnelling Achievement Award in 1996, an Order of Australia in 2002, and the 2003 A.G.M. Michell Award for his outstanding contribution to Australian Mechanical Engineering.
In 2004 the Australian Tunnelling Society started the David Sugden Award to encourage young engineers to develop the art of technical writing.
