Our inclusive team is motivated by creating a sense of place for communities and the lasting impact of their work on future generations and the environment.
For Senior Engineer Stephanie Amy, the keen interest in nature that first attracted her to a career in the water industry continues to inform her work, where she is motivated by leaving a positive legacy through projects such as the 711ha masterplanned community at Woodlea Estate.
“I’m driven by the opportunity to create environments that will benefit the local community and create amenity, while also providing great outcomes for our waterways and environment,” Steph says.
Now leading the team’s technical development and industry connection as the acting Practice Area Leader for water engineers across the business, Steph says Spiire’s culture of working together as one team has furthered her own continuing technical growth.
“I really enjoy having those diverse viewpoints and taking little nuggets of wisdom that are outside the scope of my specialty back into my projects,” Steph says.
Senior Associate Nigel Corby works at the front end of the development life cycle, where his specialty in Integrated Water Management sees him balance the priorities that drive diverse stakeholders as he finds strategic solutions.
Nigel’s background spans various roles at water authorities and in the Victorian Government, including a secondment at the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (then known as DELWP) where he authored the Integrated Water Management Framework for Victoria.
Nigel is now focusing on partnering with the property sector to put policy into practice, working on projects that bring key stakeholders together to participate in an Integrated Water Management planning approach early in the development of servicing strategies. This includes a pioneering project in Melbourne’s west, the Melton East Integrated Water Management Strategy, where we are facilitating a long-term partnership to align strategic water planning and land development practice.
