FMA Member BMT Award Win
31st August 2018
The Queensland Division of the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards 2018 has recognised BMT and Aurecon, with the prestigious RJ Hawken Award for their work on the Brisbane River Catchment Flood Study.
This award recognises the Study as the best project in Queensland across all engineering disciplines and is high-profile recognition of the valuable role that flood studies play in shaping our communities.
The Brisbane River Catchment Flood Study is a global benchmark for contemporary hydrologic and hydraulic analysis, and relies heavily on BMT's internationally recognised flood modelling software, TUFLOW.
It's now being used to help manage flood risks across the Brisbane River floodplain, which is one of the most hazardous and one of the most developed in Australia. BMT is currently delivering the Brisbane River Strategic Floodplain Management Plan, which builds on the work of the flood study.
The project has been put forward as a finalist in the national Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (2018), which will be announced on the 18th September.
