NHVR announces chief structural engineer appointment

The industry regulator has a new chief structural engineer.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) says it is pleased to announce the appointment of Stewart Garden as Chief Structural Engineer, commencing on January 8, 2024.

The national regulator says Garden brings extensive experience across the UK and Australia, where he has worked within a variety of bridge teams responsible for asset inspections as well as major infrastructure project delivery.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto says Garden’s knowledge of bridge engineering and infrastructure management will help bolster the NHVR’s work in bridge assessments.

“Stewart’s 23 years of experience in civil and structural engineering is a great asset to our team and will aid in delivering the Strategic Local Government Asset Assessment Project (SLGAAP),” Petroccitto says.

“His appointment is well-timed, and his knowledge will support the team to provide greater support for councils as they assess the capability of their bridges and inform their heavy-vehicle access decision-making.

“I congratulate Stewart on behalf of the NHVR staff and Board and look forward to working with him.”
