This in an exciting time to join the IAQ board. They play an important role in strengthening the partnerships between public and private sectors needed to deliver the record levels of investment in Queensland. Leading up to and beyond the 2032 Olympics as we continue to provide the critical infrastructure needed for our rapidly growing State this partnership is going to be important.
I look forward to collaborating with a group of diverse and yet like-minded professionals helping to create the best places in Queensland for our communities to succeed.”Chris Hurst, Executive General Manager – Major Projects, SYSTRA ANZ

The Infrastructure Association of Queensland Inc (IAQ) is the peak body representing the infrastructure industry in Queensland – we were formed in 1994 to foster private sector investment in infrastructure and provide a deeper understanding between the public and private sectors. We are an independent, evidence based, non partisan association influencing better outcomes for our members with timely engagement across policy issues. We work hard to create pathways to deliver on the economic enabling infrastructure the State needs to build a thriving future for Queenslanders.
