Karl Paton, Associate Principal and Senior Hydraulics Engineer from ACOR’s Brisbane office, has been awarded AHSCA Hydraulic Consultant of the year.

Karl was nominated by leading plumbing contractor, Cooke and Dowsett, for hydraulics design work performed on the landmark residential development, 443 Queen Street, Brisbane. Cooke and Dowsett were awarded D&C for plumbing services in late 2017, and have been working with ACOR on the project since mid-2016, to refine and optimise the Hydraulics and Fire Services design.

“Karl and his team have been one of the more proactive hydraulic design teams I have had the pleasure to work with. Their effectiveness of delivery has meant that the hydraulic documentation on the project was continually ahead of the remaining design team. This ensured that the hydraulic services co-ordination on a difficult project, spatially, was able to be resolved early. Their ability to think laterally proved invaluable to come up with effective solutions to issues that arose during design on the project.”

Chris Mutimer, Project Manager, Cooke & Dowsett


Congratulations Karl and team.
