Rob Carr’s achievements on two vital infrastructure projects were celebrated at the 2018 Civil Contractors Federation WA Earth Awards.
Rob Carr General Manager Angelo Soumboulidis congratulated their City Beach 2A & 2B Infill Sewage project team for winning Category 3 (project value $5–$10 million), and acknowledged their Optus Stadium – Wastewater (Stage 2) project team that was a finalist in Category 1 (<$2 million).
“Both projects are shining examples of Rob Carr’s trademark commitment, resilience and ability to innovate and collaborate with our clients to deliver construction excellence regardless of circumstances,” Mr Soumboulidis said.
Rob Carr Operations Manager – West Tom Kavanagh said both projects were uniquely challenging and the teams were persistent in delivering positive outcomes for the clients and the community, who are the ultimate benefactors of the company’s work.
“It is a great honour to be recognised in a field of such engineering and project management excellence.”
CCF WA CEO Andy Graham said the Earth Award judges had a difficult job choosing the winners from 18 exceptional projects entered across the six categories.
“Remarkably, seventeen of the 18 Earth Award finalists this year were State Government projects, which certainly underlines the vital importance of a strong Government infrastructure program to the civil construction sector,” Mr Graham said.
Rob Carr won Category 3 with the City Beach 2A Infill Sewage, Pumping Station and Pressure Main & City Beach 2B Infill Sewage project for Water Corporation. The project team worked collaboratively and courteously with all stakeholders, including the owners of 502 properties to be connected to the new sewer pipelines, each with differing access constraints, obstructions and terrain.
Rob Carr was a finalist in Category 1 for the Department of Treasury’s Wastewater (Stage 2) Project, part of the landmark Optus Stadium precinct development, where the team safely and successfully installed a DN110 pressure main in a compressed four-week program.
The six WA category winners will represent the state at the National Earth Awards, to be presented at a gala awards night in Canberra on 16 November 2018.
