BMD Brand Synonymous with Industry Leading Projects

BMD has been recognised as an outstanding industry leader at a number of prestigious award ceremonies across the country during the 2014 award season. The Civil Contractors Federation Earth Awards saw the Cairns Bruce Highway Upgrade project win the Category 5 Award (projects more than $75 million). The CairnsConnect Joint Venture comprising of BMD Constructions and Albem Operations was engaged by the Department of Transport and Main Roads to design and construct the $150 million Bruce Highway Upgrade into Cairns. As a result of meticulous design and construction by CairnsConnect, the project saw a number of key notable achievements including the completion of the overall project three months ahead of schedule in a tropical monsoon region; achieving an overall score of “outstanding” in all key result areas such as safety, training, environment, stakeholder management, regional development, whole of life, program and commercial; and delivering on their original commitment by reinvesting $9 million of additional scope back into the project. At the Queensland Engineers Australia Excellence Awards in September 2014, the New Parallel Runway Phase 1 – Civil Works project took home the Environmental Award in Category 3 and the Cairns Bruce Highway Upgrade project won Category 7: Project Infrastructure over $50 million. Taking out an individual award was Mick Vollbon who works on the Legacy Way project. He was awarded the Young Professional Engineer of the Year Award. These divisional wins will see BMD nominated for the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards, which will be held in late November. BMD Constructions also took home the Time Saving Initiative Award for the Hay Point Expansion – Phase 3: Pre-Reclamation, Quarry and Reclamation Contract at the Queensland Mining Contractors Awards Gala Dinner in July. Judge Trevor Davies explained BMD Constructions delivered the project successfully in a challenging physical environment and coped admirably with complex regulations which showed a critical understanding of risk and the importance of excellent project management. These awards are a representation of BMD’s exceptional ability to deliver work that exceeds client expectations and ultimately makes project sites a safer and more productive environment for all involved. ______________________________________________________________________________
