2014 achievements

  • Sydney Water Malabar PARR Alliance – By using GHD's innovation framework and the PIVOT online idea management platform, our team enabled effective collaboration with many people and disciplines. This contributed to idea generation and assessment as part of delivering process and reliability/renewal improvements to the Malabar Wastewater Treatment Plant.
  • StormDMT – Kostas Athanasiadis, one of GHD's senior industrial water engineers, proposed a new solution to filter out dissolved heavy metals from stormwater. The StormDMT product has now been implemented on various projects, and we have licensed it for manufacturing and distribution.
  • Smart Seeds innovation competition – We continue to assist young professionals from a variety of organisations to learn and be inspired by solving challenges of the infrastructure industry.
