- John Woodside
Whilst engineers are immersed in the design of reinforced concrete right from their undergraduate days, little time is spent on teaching and instruction of the detailing aspects of reinforcement.
Part science, part art form, good clear reinforcement detailing is critical to both the performance of the structure and in reducing disputes during construction.
John Woodside has been a practicing Engineer for nearly fifty years, graduating from the University of Melbourne with a Masters Degree in 1967.
John has worked throughout Australia and as well as in the United Kingdom and Kuwait.
From 1976 until his retirement in 2000 John worked for John Connell & Associates (now Aurecon), ultimately as Principle of the South Australian office.
Since 2000 John has privately consulted on a wide variety of projects and in 2006 was awarded the John Connell Gold Medal by the Structural College of Engineers Australia for his contribution to earthquake and concrete design in Australia.
In 2011 John was awarded the Lewis Kent Award by the IStructE and in 2015 was awarded the Engineering Heritage Australia award by Engineers Australia for his contribution to heritage engineering and the restoration of the Sir William Goodman bridge.
In 2005 John was made an Honorary Member of the Concrete Institute of Australia.
