Video Interview: Exploring new horizons in water engineering
Chris Tanner was interviewed recently by the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities about how Bligh Tanner is putting people and nature back into the centre of infrastructure development and town planning.
Bligh Tanner was one of the first Small- to Medium-sized Enterprise Associate Partners of the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC), and most recently worked with the CRCWSC on a water sensitive urban design development in Ripley Valley, Queensland.
“What drives me is the technical challenges. They’ve been really uplifting, and they’ve kept me awake at night,” Chris says, “but I’ve learned a lot. To make a business work, there is no point just being one of the crowd: you really have to deliver. That’s what has driven our business for a long time now – the idea of being a little bit different, being prepared to lead and to embrace change in our engineering.”
