Congratulations to our founder, David Coffey AM, who was recognised in the Australia Day 2015 Honours List.
David was named as a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia in recognition of his contribution to engineering, in particular geotechnical and environmental investigation, to business and to tertiary education.
This prestigious award was worthy recognition of David’s contribution to the industry, which saw him recognise the value of geotechnical engineering before the profession was well understood in Australia.
David established Coffey from his home in 1959, after spending time working in Canada. It took just four years for the company he founded to become the market leader.
Congratulations to David on this prestigious award – well deserved recognition of his outstanding contribution to our industry.
