  • Thanks for attending, Melbourne

    ISOTC251The Melbourne chapter hosted an information session on the recent work of the TC251 standards committee last Thursday. Tom Carpenter, an AMC Board member and the Professionals Australia representative on TC251, explained the challenges the committee has been embracing to provide asset managers with additional material on value. Probably one of the more perplexing concepts for asset managers is making choices about value measurement. The TC251 committee has explored several options for measuring value in the next draft of the ISO 5500 Standards, including financial, safety, social and environmental parameters. AMC and EA members in Melbourne were enthusiastic with questions and feedback about the work of the TC251 committee and the more general work on asset management standards.

  • Tunnelling – it’s not all boring!

    Tunnel

    Melbourne’s underground transport network is a creeping network. For those of us above-ground, we take little notice that, when standing in the CBD, there is so much going on beneath the surface. Because we give nary a second thought to the network underfoot, equally forgivable is the fact that most of us probably don’t know the half of what is involved with tunnelling itself.

    So, is there more to making a tunnel than burrowing? You betcha there is!
