History

Their first project, in 1956 was the design of a bridge over the Derwent River in Hobart, Tasmania. (The bridge collapsed in 1975 when a ship carrying zinc concentrates rammed into a supporting pylon).

Since then Maunsell have managed the construction of many public projects in Australia including the Westlink M7 in Sydney and the North-South Bypass Tunnel under construction in Brisbane. Their biggest project to date is the construction of a 500 hectare tourism precinct in Al Raha Beach, United Arab Emirates.

They were chosen by the Australian Defence Force in 2006 to prepare an environmental assessment of the 2007 Taliman-Sabre Joint war games to take place at Shoalwater Bay Defence Training Area, near Yeppoon in Queensland. [1] (Pdf)
