The APP Group’s engineers recognised by Engineers Australia

We are delighted to announce that 27 engineers from our Transport team have been Chartered by Engineers Australia. 

21 August 2023

This credential formally recognises the years our people have devoted to engineering, their technical expertise and their clear commitment to continuing professional development. Nationally and internationally recognised, the Chartered Engineer status reflects the excellence and skill of our Transport experts.

The Chartering process involved completing at least 150 hours of professional development activities over a three-year period including formal training, networking, events, and discussions. Our people also supplied evidence that they met the 16 elements of competency for independent practice as an engineer.

Leigh Braddick, Chief People Officer at The APP Group said, “Becoming a Chartered Engineer is not only a recognition of skill, but it also signals a profound dedication and passion for the engineering profession as a whole. Professional qualifications such as the Chartered Engineer credential can open the door to new opportunities and experiences, which are essential to career progression. I wish to thoroughly congratulate all of our engineers for their achievements.”

Our Transport leaders honoured by Engineers Australia 

Narmin Adni-Azar and Jeremy Joubran have been conferred as Fellows of Engineers Australia.

Elected by their peers, Fellowship represents significant achievement and prominence within the engineering profession. 

To be considered, engineers must have a demonstrated commitment to the profession across a number of spheres including leadership, design and project execution, and education. 

The APP Group congratulates Narmin and Jeremy on their significant achievements.  

Narmin Adni-Azar, General Manager, Assurance NSW & ACT

Narmin’s career spans the property and infrastructure sectors with a focus on the Independent Verification of design and construct projects. Her project experience extends to major city-shaping projects including the Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 3, Sydney Gateway Stages 1 & 3, and Parramatta Light Rail. 

Narmin is passionate about supporting the development of her team, industry relationships and the existing technical capabilities within the business. 

Her commitment to making a social impact by sharing engineering knowledge led to her spearhead a training program for prison inmates in the production of precast panels. The program gave inmates an important pathway to learn new vocational skills and new career opportunities.

Jeremy Joubran, General Manager, Assurance VIC, TAS & SA

Jeremy is a civil engineer with more than 20 years of hands-on infrastructure experience, primarily in the fields of precast concrete and post-tensioning. 

He has extensive technical knowledge gained through roles with both specialist concrete contractors and Tier One engineering contractors, across a broad range of projects including bridges, dams, tunnels, retaining walls and multi-storey buildings. 

He joined The APP Group’s Transport team in 2017 and has since worked on major public infrastructure projects such as Melbourne’s landmark West Gate Tunnel and North East Link projects.
