Cornell Engineers are at the forefront of building and maintaining their knowledge. That’s why they have a regular program of Friday morning training sessions including speakers from law firms, technical representatives and in-house technical presentations.
Cornell Engineers welcomed Mr Brent Turnbull, special counsel at McKays Solicitors, this morning for this week’s Friday morning training session.
Brent Turnbull is an experienced building and construction lawyer and he took time out his day this morning to discuss litigious and regulatory matters especially as they relate to signing of Form 15s and Form 16s.
We’d like to formally thank Brent for his time and recommend him to our construction industry friends and clients as an extremely knowledgeable solicitor with significant experience in drafting construction contracts, construction litigation and acting for (and against) architects and engineers.
Thank you Brent Turnbull and thank you McKays Solicitors! We learnt a lot today.

Join Cornell Engineer’s structural engineer, Jed Maybury, for an introduction to MP1.4 Building Over or Near Relevant Infrastructure in Queensland.
MP1.4 is the rule book for engineers for designing buildings over sewer pipes in Queensland.
MP1.4 specifies rules for how close footings can be to sewer pipes, stormwater pipes, gas pipes, Telstra pipes, NBN cables and other underground pipes.
For example when building near a council sewer pipe, the footings have to be clear of the manholes, clear of the sewer connection point (the location your house connects to the sewer) and clear of the sewer pipe itself.
