Darcy Stevenson

Civil & Environmental Engineer, BEng (Civil & Environmental)

Darcy obtained a bachelor’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the Queensland University of Technology in 2016. Darcy worked for ACS Engineers in 2016 during his final year at university.
After graduating, Darcy went down to Canberra to work in the Australian Public Service, working in several roles across two Government Departments. Those most relevant included project environmental assessments and compliance under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, and project review and cost estimation of Land Transport Network (national roads) projects across Australia.
After two years in the Australian Public Service, Darcy decided to return to the field of engineering as an environmental engineer back at his initial workplace of ACS Engineers. The experience of working in the public service has taught Darcy a lot about managing a wide range of stakeholders, meeting time pressures, understanding government expectations and the decision-making process, and most importantly producing quality work.
Darcy is eager to learn and grow in his new position and help assist clients with their project to completion. His interests lie in the disciplines of water and wastewater, waste and resource management, erosion and sediment control, and water sensitive urban design.
