Indesco Presentation at Canberra Institute of Technology

Engineering students at CIT were recently lucky enough to have a visit from Indesco Civil Designer James Suman, who gave a talk on the challenges of entering the Engineering workforce. He gave some fantastic advice on what to expect, the kinds of opportunities available, and the variety of work covered in a firm such as Indesco.

Indesco’s own graduate training program sees that the graduates that join our offices are exposed to various disciplines to develop their skills, prepare for their future and help them to progress to a consultant level.

We thank the students for their enthusiasm, and hope to see the high quality of drafting and engineering graduates attending our training program continuing in the future!

Indesco contributes to happier and healthier waterways in ACT


The Indesco team has been busy working away on upgrades for the ACT Healthy Waterways program, which hopes to see cleaner water throughout the ACT and downstream river systems. The ACT Healthy Waterways project is a joint initiative of the ACT and Australian governments, which aims to improve the quality of water throughout our rivers, lakes and waterways, through the construction of stormwater treatment assets including bioretention systems, ponds, channels and wetlands. As our local lakes and waterways not only contribute to beautiful landscape, but also provide places for recreation and a means of supporting local business such as farming activities, it is essential that water quality throughout the region is cared for.

Indesco has provided civil and landscape design for 11 sites within the ACT Healthy Waterways project within the Tuggeranong, Fyshwick and Upper Molonglo priority catchments. 10 of these sites have progressed to construction and currently nearing practical completion. The first site to be completed is located adjacent to Upper Stranger Pond which is a 5200m2 bioretention system. The site will treat up to 1,800L/s of stormwater in rain events before discharging to lake Tuggeranong via Upper Stranger Pond.

In Indesco’s Civil and Landscape design role, we are proud to play a part in celebrating our beautiful surroundings and improving the quality of water for the ACT community and downstream regions.
