Michael Ossipow is the Hydraulic Section Manager at WGE’s Brisbane office. His role encompasses design and review of sanitary plumbing, house drainage, storm water, water services, fire services and gas projects in the commercial, residential, health, industrial and community sectors, supervising the team, assisting with resourcing for the delivery of milestone documentation phases and forecasting to achieve forward loads and targets.
Michael has 25 years’ experience in hydraulic and wet fire consultancy functions, from research and feasibility studies through cost effective design, to commissioning and regulatory authority responsibilities.
Outside of work
Michael is a keen AFL and NRL follower and supporting live music. He enjoys travelling with his family to city and country destination but is most happy when there are bush walking tracks or swimming holes to explore. As well as supporting charities including UNICEF and Surf Life Saving Queensland, Michael would one day like to set up his own charity.
What will you bring to a project
I encourage everyone in the team to contribute to the effectiveness of the documentation that is produced. This helps to maintain pride and commitment from employees, which is inevitably transferred to our valued Client.
