Matthew Ennever is a Structural Engineer at Bligh Tanner Consulting. Matthew graduated from the University of Queensland with first class honours in 2013. While studying, Matthew worked for Thiess Pty Ltd on a $2.1B infrastructure project in the Surat Basin gas fields. Since joining Bligh Tanner, he has been involved in a wide range of projects from multi-million dollar commercial buildings to high-end houses, sculptures and refurbishments.
Recently, Matthew has worked on projects that include underpinning the heritage listed Dakota Apartments in Teneriffe, the $35 million renovation of the heritage listed Forgan Smith building at UQ, the $101 million Carrara Sports & Leisure Centre for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, and John Wesley Gardens – a 144 bed aged care facility north of Brisbane.
Somewhat departing from his expertise of design, construction and inspection of buildings, Matthew particularly enjoyed his work on the Phoenix Sculpture for Landcom. It was a 14m high steel and aluminium clad sculpture in the middle of a man-made canal. In all of his work, he enjoys seeing materials and structures performing untraditional functions in a variety of environments and situations.
