Kauri Parade wins national CCF Earth Award

BMD Constructions’ Kauri Parade project in Seacliff, South Australia has been honoured at the 2016 Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) National Earth Awards, last Friday evening. The CCF Earth Awards are a long-running and prestigious award program recognising outstanding construction and environmental excellence within the civil infrastructure sector. The Kauri Parade Tennis Courts project for the City of Holdfast Bay involved the construction and installation of ten tennis courts and two interchangeable sport courts. Works included clearing and demolition, earthworks, gravel pavement, installation of 540 concrete filled steel piles and construction of two major gabion retaining walls. During construction, the team placed a heavy focus on the environmental aspects of the project with the construction site located on top of a redundant landfill site. The complex earthworks on contaminated land were performed with no noise, dust, or water contaminants leaving the site or affecting workers or the public. Due to significant planning and a practical solution for the community, the site is now a fully contained and capped landfill, with tennis courts that are professionally presented. In close collaboration with design partners FMG Engineering and Tonkin Consulting, the project team excelled in the delivery of the project, completing the $4.7 million design and construct project one month ahead of schedule with zero incidents and provided in excess of $1 million in “Whole of Life” cost savings for the client. The project also recently won the IPWEA South Australia Excellence in Design and/or Construction of a Public Works Environmental Enhancement award at the 2016 Excellence Awards. BMD’s ability to deliver high quality projects that meet client expectations is testament to the project team’s commitment to client relationships and the effective and efficient management processes instilled in the team. Congratulations to the team and all involved in the project.
