Since 2015 the ATS has ensured the voice of the next generation of tunnellers is heard at the national level through the appointment of an ATS young members representative who sits on the national executive committee. Brodie Aitchison has been appointed as the third ATSym representative following a selection and nomination process which concluded in January this year.

Brodie is a chartered civil engineer specialising in tunnels and underground spaces. He is an active member of the Queensland ATS committee and has been a key member of the ATSym team developing the ATS Tunnel Design Guideline. His key areas of interest and aspiration are to develop and implement innovative technologies with sustainable methods within the tunnelling industry.

As part of the role Brodie will also be responsible for communications with the ITA’s young tunnellers initiative the ITAym. The ITAym is a global connected network of young tunnellers who are looking to share knowledge and experience for the benefit of the industry.

Congratulations Brodie and best of luck in the new role!
