Minimising waste in large projects is a major cost consideration, and several opportunities exist for engineers to use their knowledge and expertise to transform waste from a cost burden to a marketable product.
What innovative recycling ideas can and are being implemented in the Engineering space? How are by-products being utilised to reduce costs? Learn the answers to these questions and more during this seminar, as industry experts share their experiences of innovative and “out of the box” techniques to minimise and transform waste.

Cherie Lee FIEAust CPEng EngExec NER APEC Engineer IntPE(Aus): Managing Director, Maxen Consulting Group
Cherie is a dynamic, inclusive leader, with expertise in engineering design, systems engineering, project management, policy, and governance of major infrastructure projects in New Zealand, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Australia.
In 2016 she founded Maxen Consulting Group, a technical consulting group that identifies and delivers continuous improvement and innovation for the construction and demolition sector. It was around this time that she became aware of the practical barriers hindering effective and efficient resource reuse. Looking for solutions led to a career pivot and Cherie launched an innovative tech start-up, matX, to support businesses transitioning to the reuse, then circular economy.
Cherie will show how early identification of reuse and recycling creates opportunity for the construction and demolition industry to continue to improve sustainable outcomes by focusing on commercial outcomes.
