Award for Individual Leadership in Infrastructure Sustainability
On October 21, Scott Losee received this year’s Individual Leadership in Infrastructure Sustainability Award from ISCA.
The award ‘Recognises the individual who best exhibits the most outstanding performance, leadership and greatest contribution to advancing infrastructure sustainability.’
ISCA also recognised Holly Mapson of Laing O’Rourke with a Highly Commended Award in this category.
The following citation that accompanied Scott’s award:
‘During 2014-15, Scott has continued to promote and advance infrastructure sustainability at every opportunity.
Scott has relished being able to lead the adoption of the IS rating scheme within the industry, now that it has matured from its origins. Scott has been intensively involved in the creation of ISCA and the IS rating scheme since its very beginning.
In December 2014, Scott retired from the ISCA Board as its longest-serving Director. He continues as a volunteer member of the Technical Steering Committee (TSC) and as an active Verifier.
The particular contribution that Scott makes to the TSC, and previously the Board, is to maintain the focus on the high standards of sustainability that embody the original aspirations for an infrastructure sustainability rating scheme for Australia.
His volunteer efforts this year have also included overseeing the development of an ISCA Planning Guideline and beginning the revamp of the IS scorecard, after having developed the original scorecard currently in use. Scott represents ISCA in a voluntary capacity within Queensland from time to time to enhance the reach of the organisation into the state.
His verifications this year have included two Northwest Rail Link (NWRL) packages and the first Operations and New Zealand pilot rating. The NWRL verification included the first face-to-face verifier meeting.’
