Professor Andrew Harris innovates to bring radical new technologies to the construction industry. From a test lab in Sydney’s Chippendale district, engineers disassemble off-the-shelf video game components to rig up new onsite safety tools, while new technologies like virtual reality and 3D printing are being adapted to deliver faster projects and unique designs which could not have been done with the tools of the past.

From robotics to “smart” hard hats, a renaissance of innovation in construction is being launched from Australia to all across the world, geared to disrupt a $15 trillion global industry. These same ideas are now being applied to new problems in other industries as part of a translational research effort to launch revolutionary innovations, push new boundaries and create a stronger future. The Warren Centre’s Innovation Lecture 2017 will allow for an understanding of these future technologies and the transformative impacts they will have on shaping tomorrow.

The 2017 Innovation Lecture is supported by the Warren Centre’s innovation program. The program includes a series of Innovation Panels throughout 2017 to explore key industry trends and their impact on society, to both highlight Australia’s capability and understand how innovation will continue to drive change.

Ticket price includes lecture, drinks and canapés.

Professor Andrew Harris:
Professor Andrew Harris PhD, BEng, BSc, CEng, FIChemE, CPEng, FIEAust, NER, RPEQ, MAICD is a Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Sustainable Technology School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Sydney and the Australian director of Laing O’Rourke’s future engineering and innovation consultancy, the Engineering Excellence Group. At the University of Sydney, Andrew’s research is focused on developing cutting edge technologies to assist with the transition to sustainability. His research typically occurs at the interface between established scientific disciplines, i.e. chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and materials science. By working at the intersection of these disciplines, Andrew is able to adopt a multi-scale, multi-disciplinary approach. It is this approach that has enabled Andrew to explore truly innovative solutions in large scale complex construction projects at Laing O’Rourke.

Laing O’Rourke is Australia’s largest private engineering and construction business, with local turnover of approximately $3 billion per annum. The organisation is an internationally focussed engineering enterprise with world-class capabilities spanning the entire client value chain providing services across engineering, construction and asset management services, offering single-source solutions for some of the world’s most prestigious public and private organisations. Laing O’Rourke funds, designs, manufactures, constructs and maintains the built environment—providing the facilities to accommodate, educate, employ, transport, care for and sustain communities.

Andrew is a non-executive Director of Hazer Group, a listed clean tech and serves on the industry advisory board of the Australian Research Council Centre for Robotic Vision. Andrew received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2002 and is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and Engineers Australia (IEAust). In 2006 Andrew received the Shedden Uhde Medal and Prize as the leading early career chemical engineer in Australia and New Zealand, and was recognised as one of Australia’s 50 most innovative engineers by Engineers Australia in 2017.

The Innovation Lecture’s primary sponsors are Laing O’Rourke and the University of Sydney.
