Infrastructure specialists, E3 Advisory joins our Industry Partnership Program

L-R: Lucas Jordan, Tennille Cheong, Iain Scoular - E3 AdvisoryThe School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CVEN) warmly welcomes infrastructure strategy specialists, E3 Advisory to the Industry Partnership Program (IPP).

E3 Advisory is involved in key infrastructure projects nationally, with teams currently working on the Circular Quay Renewal Precinct, the ongoing Sydney Metro project and Queensland’s Cross River Rail as well as having worked on the award winning Westconnex transaction with E3 Advisory providing commercial due diligence for Sydney Transport Partners.

E3 Advisory began as a small firm of highly experienced professionals in August 2014 growing into an organisation of 80 staff across Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. E3 Advisory prides itself on providing tailored infrastructure advice to organisations which own, develop, deliver, manage and/or operate complex capital assets in the infrastructure and resources sectors.

Building its success on the key principles of Efficiency, Effectiveness and Economic Value, hence the name – E3 Advisory, it recognises that each client requires an individualised approach avoiding repetitive ‘cookie-cutter’ solutions and instead adopting the latest technologies and methods to push boundaries and provide the best outcomes.

CVEN Industry Advisory Committee member, Iain Scoular joined E3 Advisory in 2016 as a Senior Advisor after spending his entire career with major Australian construction contractors in both project and general management. As an employee-owned, boutique group of infrastructure specialists, E3 Advisory was in his words ‘a refreshing contrast to working for large contractors’, and he has been able to draw on his 40 years’ experience in delivering infrastructure projects to assist his clients to develop and deliver their own major projects.

 On joining the School’s IPP, Senior Advisor, Lucas Jordan said:

 “A number of E3 Advisory’s staff are alumni of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, so we saw value in initiating a long-term partnership.”

 “Becoming an Industry Partner means that E3 Advisory can actively foster career development with students in the School through its participation in the many career events organised by CVEN and the Faculty exclusively for the Industry Partnership Program – the very events where many career conversations begin!”

“This partnership with the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering is important to us. As Industry Partners, we can create exciting opportunities for elite students to jump-start their careers in the infrastructure space.”

E3 Advisory recognises the value of young talent (graduates and undergraduates) and their ability to contribute to the diversity of the firm’s business operations. To that end, the E3 Advisory Graduate Program was developed offering exclusive internships where students are paired with E3 Advisory mentors respected as industry leaders at the top of their field.

Senior Advisor, Tennille Cheong has been with E3 Advisory since its inception and shares her journey, “In 2011, I moved from construction and project management into infrastructure advisory and joined a company that would allow me to use my industry knowledge and experience to help clients. Three years later, I joined E3 Advisory which was in the early stages of start-up. It was an opportunity not only to broaden my experience as a Senior Advisor but also to contribute directly to the running of a new business. Since joining, I have developed many rewarding relationships with my clients and colleagues and haven’t looked back.”

The School looks forward to a fruitful partnership with E3 Advisory and the many opportunities for student engagement and mentorship that E3 Advisory is keen to pursue.
