2018 saw quite a few firsts for icubed. We opened our Melbourne Office, and have undertaken projects in New Zealand, the United States and the UK, hiring 14 new staff in the process. Today, icubed has staff located in every State of Australia, working across a range of projects. We would like to thank our clients, suppliers and of course our dedicated staff for supporting us in what has been a great year.
Our planning and environment team have reinforced their position in the utility solar permitting space, and are now working on a variety of exciting new challenges seeking approvals for a number of wind farms as well as Queensland’s first behind the meter GAS PV hybrid project. Our civil balance of plant design team currently have seven projects under construction and by the time these projects are finished next year, icubed will have completed the design for wind farms with an installed capacity of over 3GW.
Not to be outdone, our building and infrastructure teams have been hard at work on a range of projects, including the world first fibre composite wharf (FRP) on the Brisbane River.

Several building projects, with an end value in excess of $100 million, are currently under delivery thanks to icubed’s newly formed, dedicated project management team’s effective utilisation of their specialist contract management skills. This was the last piece of the puzzle that has allowed icubed to deliver a ‘concept to completion’ service for our valued clients.
Our dedicated and talented staff with their pursuit of excellence and knowledge, knows no bounds. We are pleased to be supporting a large number of staff in their continued education in the areas of business, design and of course engineering, at both graduate and post graduate levels.
We manage to have a bit of fun along the way too, with the entire team getting behind fundraisers for the Children’s Hospital Foundation and Movember. Without this special group of people, icubed would not be able to deliver on the diverse range of interesting projects with which our valued clients entrust us.
In closing, icubed wishes Season’s Greetings to all of our staff, clients, suppliers and their families for a safe and happy festive season. We trust you all enjoy your vacation, wherever it takes you, and come back refreshed for 2019. It is going to be another ripper!
