New gig for Rom

Engineers Australia has announced Romilly Madew AO as its new CEO, following the retirement of Dr Bronwyn Evans in May.   

Madew was appointed CEO of Infrastructure Australia in early 2019, and before that was CEO of the Green Building Council of Australia for 13 years. In acknowledgment of her contribution to Australia’s sustainable building movement, Madew was awarded an Order of Australia in 2019. 

Engineers Australia National President Dr Nick Fleming says Madew was chosen after an extensive executive search. 

“Romilly comes to us as a globally recognised CEO and advocate for change in the property and construction sector,” he says. “Her visionary leadership style will enhance and build on our strong legacy of advancing society through great engineering, sound strategy and investment.” 

Madew says she is looking forward to starting the role. 

“Engineers Australia’s vision and focus align with the values I’ve pursued throughout my career,” she says, “to listen to a wide range of voices, to engage with members to gain consensus, to build strong teams and partnerships, and to achieve on-the-ground real-world impact.” 

Engineers Australia COO Michael Luddeni will act as CEO until Madew starts on August 1.

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

Feasibility study of wastewater energy transfer for an existing campus building cluster

The HVAC-related energy usage of a group of three existing buildings on a Canadian university campus (the “Cluster”) was simulated. Two scenarios were compared: (1) an ambient loop paired with conventional HVAC equipment (boiler plant and cooling tower), and (2) an ambient loop using wastewater energy transfer (“WET”). The study aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing WET as a heating and cooling method for cold-climate institutional buildings, as well as to measure the effects of WET implementation on energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy costs
