We are proud to acknowledge our Senior Structural Engineer, Vijay Badhwar, who has made significant contributions to the development of Australian Standards and Building Codes in Australia.
Vijay, a former Principal Engineer and Expertise Leader with the NSW Government was a guest at the Governor's Garden Party held for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh in the Grounds of Government House 30 years ago on Saturday 22 February 1992 where he had the pleasure of a brief exchange with the Queen and the Duke.
James Warner was a Government Surveyor who surveyed the entire length of Norman Creek Queensland, from its headwaters in Mount Gravatt to its confluence with the Brisbane River. His plan, a real treasure, was produced in September 1839 and is held by the Queensland Museum of Lands, Mapping and Surveying. In 1850 James Warner surveyed and plotted the Milton Reach between Boundary Creek and Western Creek.
James Warner is MCS's Managing Director's great, great grandfather.
