BMD Industrial deliver first foray off the mainland

BMD’s first foray off the mainland was completed by BMD Industrial, having completed the design, supply and construction of new inlet facilities to 11 sewage treatment plants across Tasmania. Each of the individual sites were unique and required individual diverse solutions to ensure primary treatment requirements were met, whilst not interfering with the daily operations of the existing treatment plants which discharged in sensitive waterways. The project’s success was partially due to the high level of integration and interface between BMD project personnel and TasWater operational staff enabling the works to proceed efficiently without interruption to the existing operating facility. This collaborative approach, through regular joint planning at onsite meetings, presented an opportunity to discuss the status of planned works and interface with operational requirements. BMD engaged 85% of suppliers and subcontractors from the local market with only three contracts awarded to interstate suppliers due to goods not being able to be sourced locally. BMD Industrial delivered on all project objectives with no environmental incidents and the project’s total recordable incident frequency rate as zero, a great achievement for BMD’s first project in Tasmania.
