Building on achievements
SWANBOURNE resident Liliana Mironov says that after more than 20 years, Wood & Grieve is a “big part of my life and family”.
The engineer received the Doric Lifetime Achievement Award at the National Association of Women in Construction WA Awards for Excellence on Thursday.
“I feel really privileged to be here and to be nominated by my company,” Ms Mironov said.
The award recognises the achievements of an outstanding woman who has shown significant commitment to, and made a lasting impact on, the construction industry for more than 25 years.
Ms Mironov started working as an engineer in Bulgaria in 1988 and migrated to Australia three years later before joining Wood & Grieve Engineers in 1994.
For more than 20 years, she has been an active member of Engineers of Australia and was recently elected to the grade of Fellow, the highest recognition available in the industry.
Jill Fraser, of Scarborough, won the Norton Rose Fulbright Outstanding Contribution to Construction Award for her work as a role model in her business while Nedlands resident Ali Burston received the Arup Diversity & Inclusion Award recognising a significant commitment to increasing diversity and inclusion in their workplace.
The Built Innovation Award went to Rebecca Wheadon, of Mt Hawthorn, for her work developing the infrastructure element of the Australian Square Kilometre Array program.
