Seymour Whyte Constructions Project Manager Bryan Broadfoot was named Queensland winner of the Australian Institute of Building’s Professional Excellence Award for Infrastructure, in recognition for his outstanding performance on the Pacific Motorway: Coomera Exit 54 Interchange Upgrade.

The company’s Northern Region Operations Manager Will MacDonald said Mr Broadfoot led a team of engineers and professionals who performed well across all areas of quality, safety, environmental, traffic, and the management of community and stakeholders during the construction of this key infrastructure upgrade.

“Bryan oversaw the safe and efficient construction of a new overpass structure over the existing Pacific Motorway, without impacting traffic flow for the more than 120,000 vehicles per day through the site.

“Under his leadership, the team has built strong client relationships, established meaningful engagement with an active local community and delivered the project two weeks ahead of schedule, within the client’s budget.”

Mr Broadfoot, with other QLD Chapter Professional Excellence Award winners, will go forward to be judged at the national level. The recipients of the 2017 national awards will be announced in September in Brisbane.
