Over 30 years as a consultant & contractor
Trevor’s role in award-winning teams includes:

- Trevor Waters received both the State and National Professional Excellence Awards from the Australian Institute of Building.
Techniques developed for the Sydney Opera House were published in a special issue of the Journal of Architectural Conservation (UK), ‘Cleaning Techniques in Conservation Practice’. Trevor Waters undertook extensive investigations on the causes of discoloration of the folded concrete beams. These demonstrated that the efflorescence and staining were present when the slabs were first poured. Treatment with calcium bicarbonate has successfully evened out the discoloration and brought the beams closer to the architect’s original intent.
