For Civil Engineering Certification the Queensland Professional Engineers Act 2002 dictates that all professional engineering is to be supervised by a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ). Throughout the rest of Australia, Engineers Australia provides the Chartered Professional Engineers (CPEng) status and a Professional Development Program (PDP) which allows Chartered Professional Engineers and Registered Professional Engineers of Queensland to stay current and up to date with their skills.
‘Registration as a professional engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) is recognition of the qualifications and competencies of an engineer. Engineers occupy positions of trust and responsibility within the community, with industry and across government. An engineer plays a critical role in the design and construction of major infrastructure as well as providing critical engineering services to the mining and growing resources sector in Queensland. Engineers aren’t limited to the building sector. They play an important role in the construction manufacturing sectors. There are currently 25 areas of engineering in Queensland ranging from aeronautical, chemical to marine engineers. By having a registration system this ensures a high standard of engineering exists within Queensland.’ Source: Board of Professional Engineers of Queensland 2014 www.bpeq.qld.gov.au.
At Civil and Water Design we desire to maintain this high standard of engineering. As such all of our professional engineering activities are supervised and certified by engineers with the qualifications of CPEng and RPEQ. This includes our designs, reports, supervision of the construction of our designs and the certification of constructed drawings. This gives our client confidence that things are done not only to the highest quality but also consistent with State Law.
