Sydney Observatory was the magnificent setting for numerous industry executives to gather and celebrate the career of Wayne E. Costin who retired in July 2017 after 28 years as managing director of Costin Roe Consulting and Strata Engineering Solutions.
The invitation-only cocktail party was attended by CRC/SES staff, colleagues and associates, and representatives from various companies and non-profit organisations that Wayne has been closely associated with over the years.
During a brief journey through some of the highlights of Wayne’s long career, and amusing anecdotes told by and about Wayne, special mention was made of Wayne’s long-standing support for the Strata Community Australia (SCA NSW) and Wheelchair Sports NSW.
Moving forward with Grant Roe and Mark Wilson
The new managing director of Costin Roe Consulting, Grant Roe, showcased some of the firm’s most recent achievements including the 2017 Award win for Excellence in Structural Engineering (completed 2016, Veolia Woodlawn MBT Facility); acknowledged the firm’s young achievers; and praised the strong sense of team spirit which continues to flourish as the firm expands in size and capability. Newly-appointed director, Mark Wilson, detailed a civil project (Horsley Drive Business Park) for which the firm received an honourable mention in 2017 awards for sustainable stormwater design. Altogether, while everyone was wishing Wayne well for the future, the firm demonstrated its strengths in civil and structural engineering, building and land remediation, and engineering technology.
