HIG held its bi-yearly symposium at Sea World on the Gold Coast. This years symposium was a special one as HIG is celebrating 25 years of operation. The symposium allows staff from all of our offices to meet up, share knowledge and experience from projects delivered over the past two years. There was a wide range of topics being discussed from Asset Management to the ever expanding utilisation of drone technology within the engineering industry.

HIG is committed to promoting positive work life balances and fostering a family friendly environment, making Sea World the perfect choice of venue for the weekend. It was a great opportunity for families to meet and share in the fun together, with our staff and families enjoying all of the shows and rides that Sea World had to offer.

Special thanks to Terry Spence for coordinating and organising this year's symposium. This was our largest symposium in many years and due to his hard work everything ran smoothly for staff and their families.
