Build­ing on achieve­ments

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

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.
