QMCA Orange Logomark

Industry in Safe Hands Thanks To Next Generation

Long-term supporter of QMCA, 4020 Consult’s Joel Martin is a firm believer in the powerful contribution that people can make to create positive and powerful change across all walks of life, particularly in construction and infrastructure. Ahead of the QMCA Awards, we caught up with Joel to find out why he believes the future of our industry is in safe hands.

“At 4020 Consult, we are passionate about infrastructure, and we are delighted to be back as partners for the Awards, and in particular, the 4020 Consult Young Professional of the year award,” said Joel. “We’re thrilled to be supporting the companies out there building the critical infrastructure that improves life for all Queenslanders, and the Awards is a wonderful way to reinforce the need for innovation, collaboration and sustainable practices whilst celebrating together as an industry.”

“A strong industry creates fantastic opportunities for people to build long-term careers where they can be part of something special while creating amazing economic, employment and community outcomes. However, we are also aware that infrastructure and engineering are competing for talent like never before, not just from within the sector but also from across new and emerging industries.”

“That’s why it is important for us to recognise the next generation of infrastructure leaders through this award. Not only do we recognise the people making their mark in the industry at the early stages of their careers, but we showcase the opportunities people have when choosing a career in infrastructure. I’m really excited this year for a couple of reasons, we have had a record number of entries in the category, and for the first time, we have all-female finalists, something that I think our industry could and should be rightly proud of.”

“It is clear, given the calibre of entrants and their achievements to date, that the future of construction and infrastructure is in the safe, talented, innovative, and capable hands of an emerging generation of future leaders who will not only have wonderful careers but will build a legacy that will support every Queenslanders future.”

“On behalf of the team at 4020 Consult, I’d like to wish all finalists in all categories the best of luck at the awards on Friday; the team and I cannot wait to be there to celebrate the people and projects that are shaping our future, one which I think we can all be excited for.”
