Warren has over 35 years experience in corrosion engineering and materials technology, in both private and public sector industries covering marine, infrastructure, industrial, civil and building structures.
He has been involved with the condition assessment, remedial strategy development and maintenance management of various steel and reinforced concrete structures and buildings. He has also provided durability assurance services to major infrastructure and new build projects.
Warren has experience in the design, specification, commissioning and monitoring of cathodic protection systems and has researched and published on condition assessment of structures, concrete durability, corrosion monitoring, cathodic protection, performance of concrete repair materials and coatings, corrosion sensors and microbiologically influenced corrosion.
He is an accredited lecturer for the Australasian Corrosion Association for the delivery of training courses, namely “Corrosion & Protection of Reinforced Concrete” and “Corrosion & Electrochemical Protection of Reinforced Concrete Structures”.
Warren is also an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Institute for Frontier Materials at Deakin University, a Visiting Adjunct Associate Professor in the Curtin Corrosion Centre at Curtin University (and Lecturer of the “Concrete Corrosion Unit” within the MSc In Corrosion Engineering), an Industry Lead with the Australian Centre for Infrastructure Durability (ACID) and an Associate Lecturer within the College of Engineering, Science and Environment at the University of Newcastle.
He is also a Member of the Concrete Institute Durability Committee and Task Group Chair for the Durability Performance Testing Recommended Practice, Task Group Member for the Durability Planning, Construction Phase Durability, Durability Modelling and Exposure Classifications Recommended Practice Documents and a Z11 In-situ Strength Assessment of Concrete Structures and Components Recommended Practice committee member as well as a Member of the fib (the International Federation for Structural Concrete) Working Parties on “Durability Testing of New Structures”, “In Service Corrosion Tests” and “Corrosion Propagation”.
