Managing Director Peter Murphy said the conference’s opening tours were a highlight of the event.

“The industry tours proved to be a great opportunity to meet the people responsible for building our city’s major roads and infrastructure and to work together to find ways achieve better sustainability outcomes on their projects.”

Mr. Murphy explained  that while tours of Alex Fraser’s facilities are a regular occurrence, the ecologiQ tours had a real sustainable edge.

“Our leaders host many tours with civil construction and sustainability experts from across the globe, it was great to host these sustainability focused tours aboard brand new 100% electric buses.”
