Global expertise to underpin structural engineering foundations

Award winning structural engineer, Mario Darmanin, has been appointed Principal Structural Engineer of Inertia Engineering. Bringing over 25 years global experience, Mr Darmanin will add significant expertise, technical skill and knowledge to the team as the boutique consultancy delivers flagship projects across Australia’s eastern seaboard.

Inertia’s Scott Clements welcomed Mario to the team “At Inertia we pride ourselves on the talent of our people and expertise that we are able to offer our clients. We are always looking to attract fantastic talent to the organisation and to attract Mario home to Australia is a huge coup.”

“Over the coming months and years, our structural team is working on projects that will become future icons for their design, technical excellence and approach to engineering and adding someone of Mario’s calibre to the team will help drive the success of our client’s projects.”

Mr Darmanin has built a track record of achievement across Australia, Asia and the Middle East helping to deliver major projects in each region. Projects such as the $3bn New Doha Port Project, Qatar; $1.5bn All Seasons Palace in Bangkok, Thailand; Abu Dhabi’s Zayed University and Siemen’s Regional HQ in Abu Dhabi, a project which achieved LEED Platinum status and won several Internal AECOM and UAE Awards for Innovation.

Mr Darmanin is looking forward to joining the team and getting his teeth into Inertia’s portfolio of work, “I am really excited about coming home to Australia and working with the talented team at Inertia. Some of the projects the team are working on will shape Brisbane’s future and are bringing world class engineering design and thinking to how we transform our cities.”

“I can’t wait to get started and to meet our key clients and bring my skills to bear on their projects as we engineer great solutions.”
