Jack Landsberg is a Civil Engineer with Bligh Tanner in Brisbane. In the 5 years he has spent with Bligh Tanner, Jack’s experience is prolific; from infrastructure design to project management, Jack has worked on some of South East Queensland’s landmark projects in the civil engineering space. Notably, the Brisbane City Council Greenslopes Creek Filtration Project was a high profile project on which Jack worked. This project won the Healthy Waterways 2014 Urban Renewal Award and spurred Jack’s interest in water sensitive urban design.
After completing his studies at the University of Queensland in 2012, Jack has been exposed to a wide variety of civil engineering applications, including the design of networks that deal with the treatment, mitigation and reuse of stormwater, sewer and water reticulation, bulk earthworks and road design. He is particularly proud of his work on The Rise, a residential subdivision at Thornlands. As a large-scale subdivision, Jack has been working on this project for several years. The project, comprising of 156 lots, borders on two significant vegetation areas which were required to be protected. Additionally, the site had to cater for a number of upstream developments through the use of regional stormwater treatment and mitigation devices and sewerage pump station, which was made difficult by the site’s topography. The challenges of the site have made Jack’s time on the project continually stimulating.
