Executive General Manager for Transport, UGL
Ian Quarrie

I am an experienced leader with a strong track record of developing new markets, growing businesses and implementing corporate change initiatives.

I have a communicative and genuine approach to leadership, bringing high levels of energy and decisiveness. I relish competitive situations that require the implementation of a winning strategy whilst also the need for amending tactics in often changing and stressful environments.

My achievements have included leading teams that won over A$6 Billion of new revenue in the economic and social infrastructure sector for the delivery of public services to both Federal and State governments.

I have extensive experience in the development of consortia for bidding major PPP infrastructure and services contracts in the Australia, NZ and the wider Asia Pacific Region including:

  • Chairmanship and attendance of steering committees and other governance boards.
  • Stakeholder engagement with senior public servants, Ministers and other Government officials.
  • Bid leadership, negotiation and transition of long term contracts.

A Civil Engineer by degree, I was educated in UK starting my career in construction before moving into sales including an Asia wide business development role, prior to moving to Australia in 1999.

AusRAIL Custom Stand Venue guidelines

All temporary structures will be professionally designed, structurally sound and will contain reasonable provision for:

  • Safety of persons to be accommodated in the event of fire including means of egress
  • Prevention of fire
  • Suppression of fire
  • Patrons must give consideration for wheelchair access to the Stand (NCC – Section D3.3) The reduction of the existing level of fire protection is not permissible.

Designers and builders have an obligation to design and construct to these principles and any relevant standards or legislation while meeting the special needs of their client. Parts of these principles include:

  • Stands over 18m2 where roofing is fitted must have a “Smoke Detection Device” and have a fire extinguisher installed. The recommended material for the roofing is “shark tooth” type material that allows water penetration from sprinklers and fire cannon.
  • Audience chairs within a temporary structure must be secured in groups of not less than 4 and not more than 16. Maximum seats in each row must not exceed 8 where there is an aisle at one end only or 16 where there are aisles on both sides of the row. (NCC NSW H101.11.1).
