Every time you travel on our roads, take public transport, attend an event, go to work or head out for some recreation time, you can be sure that engineers have played a part in creating the infrastructure you need to make it happen.
4 March is World Engineering Day, an opportunity to celebrate engineers’ contributions to a better, sustainable world for all people.
At Development Victoria, engineers play a crucial role in helping us deliver some of the state’s largest development projects.
We’re proud of the work done by the engineers in our organisation, such as Chris Giang.
Chris joined Development Victoria mid-way through 2022 as Project Manager on the Melbourne Arts Precinct Transformation, Australia’s largest cultural infrastructure project.
The Victorian Government is investing $1.7 billion to transform the Melbourne Arts Precinct into one of the great creative and cultural destinations in the world. Development Victoria is delivering the transformation on behalf of Melbourne Arts Precinct Corporation, Creative Victoria, National Gallery of Victoria and Arts Centre Melbourne.
From a young age, Chris was fascinated by watching the work done by heavy machinery on construction sites and that steered him towards a career as an engineer.
“I wanted to work in an industry where my work would help improve people’s quality of life” Chris says.
Chris graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) degree and has since put his skills to work on some of Australia’s largest road infrastructure projects such as the North East Link and West Gate Tunnel Project.
