The Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers celebrated a year of building services success with members, industry guests and delegates, at the Australian Museum in Sydney on Thursday evening.

Hames Sharley Director Aldo Raadik was in attendance to give guests a unique insight into the Australian Museum Trust’s masterplan for the museum’s redesign and expansion plans for 2020 and beyond. The designs have set out the vision for the museum to be the world’s foremost resource for understanding Pacific and Australian Indigenous cultures, and the natural science of the region. The First Phase of this Masterplan will now commence through the Governments recent $50m grant that enables exhibition spaces to be created for the travelling King Tutankhamun exhibition announced for 2021

This annual event is organised to recognise outstanding young engineering talent and the evening culminated in the announcement of the 2018 CIBSE Australia & New Zealand Young Engineers Awards winners. Guests also had exclusive access to the 200 Treasures of the gallery, and heard to a special presentation given by the museum’s award-winning exhibition designer, Aaron Maestri. Maestri presented on the unique refurbishment issues the museum encountered when redesigning the Westpac Long Gallery last year.
