Felicity Furey is a Civil Engineer who has been delivering Australia’s mega infrastructure projects for over 10 years. This work includes extending the life of the Sydney Harbour Tunnel, delivering a life saving upgrade to the most dangerous road in Brisbane, and shaping the city of Melbourne as a design manager on the West Gate Tunnel Project.

Felicity applies the design principles learnt in her professional career to engineer a better society.
