Brisbane - Sourcing Engineers for Major Highway Upgrades
NES Fircroft supplied specialist designers, drafters and engineers to support the Kingsford Smith Drive highway upgrade
In addition to providing increased road capacity for the increasing traffic volumes, the upgrade also aimed to deliver significantly improved pedestrian and cycle facilities to increase the public transport options for the residents in the Northshore precinct. Other public transport improvements included the addition of indented bus stops.
The critical upgrade would create a entry statement to Brisbane, transforming one of the city’s most significant routes into a vibrant urban corridor with the Brisbane River as the centrepiece.
The skillsets required included Design Managers, Drafters / Senior Drafters, Civil Engineers and Principle Engineers with both contract and permanent positions on offer.
The biggest challenge to our client’s recruitment drive was to secure the large volume of required talent in a short timeframe, in a market renowned for skills shortages.
