Young Tunneller of the year

Josh Barry

Josh started his career at Aurecon as a student engineer in Melbourne, Australia, in 2007. He had recently returned from an exchange in Canada at the University of Waterloo, where he was enthused by the area of geotechnical engineering.

This passion was furthered through a 12-week work experience placement at Aurecon, and it wasn’t long before that work experience led to a full-timerole. But it was a move to Hong Kong in 2011 where Josh really began to step up and take on challenges beyond his experience level, including the South Island Line, which really formed the base of his career and got him excited about developing his future in tunnelling.

In 2016, Josh moved to Bangkok where he has gone on to create and lead Aurecon’s first tunnel team in Thailand. Some of the major challenges that Josh has faced are related to spending his career in three very different locations (Melbourne, Hong Kong and Bangkok).
