Congratulations to Mai Yeung, Senior Associate - Airports who has attained Fellow status with the Society of Light and Lighting (SLL). The SLL, which is recognised globally as an authority on lighting and its applications, bestows Fellow status upon individuals who have made a significant contribution to light and lighting.
This is another key milestone for Mai who is also a Fellow of Engineers Australia, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, and the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers.
For over 35 years, Mai has been involved with various specialist lighting projects in the building, sports facilities and transport infrastructure projects in Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, India and the Middle East.
Mai is a recognised leader in Australia for Aeronautical Ground Lighting (AGL) and airport lighting and has been at Beca since 2013. As the airport lighting technical lead, she is responsible for developing the AGL capability and business. She was instrumental in the implementation of the LED apron floodlights for both the Melbourne Airport Foxtrot and Southern Apron Expansion projects.
As a recognised AGL specialist, Mai has developed innovative AGL and technology to safeguard the multiple taxi lane operation at Melbourne Airport. Mai is the AGL Lead Technical Verifier for the Department of Defence P0007 military airfields upgrade works at the RAAF Bases East Sale, Pearce, Gin Gin and AAC Oakey.
Although the SLL was launched in 1999, the Society builds on 100 years of history. Its origins go back to the formation, in 1909, of the Illuminating Engineering Society, which had the aim of considering all applications of natural and artificial light. The SLL is now incorporated into the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers.
