Costin Roe Consulting has congratulated Lipman Pty Ltd on winning a prestigious 2016 MBA Excellence award for the Veolia Woodlawn MBT facility construction at Tarago, NSW.
The award for site safety on a commercial project with a construction value of more than $50M is one of several sought-after industry credits recently received by Lipman, the firm also winning 2016 awards for works at 580 George Street, Sydney, Trinity Grammar School Aquatic Centre, and ARV Lober Square Redevelopment Stage 2 (housing) in the annual Master Builders Association (“MBA”) honours list.
On behalf of Lipman, project engineer Mitchell Jeffries thanked all partners and participants involved in the Woodlawn Project following the MBA awards presentation event at the Star Casino, Sydney, on Saturday 5 November 2016, attributing the award to the “Daily Pre-Start & Zoning Procedures… incorporated on the project to assess and control high-risk activity.”
“It’s an honour for our firm to have been involved in the extraordinary environmental achievement represented by the Veolia Woodlawn MBT facility, and to work with Lipman for their uncompromising commitment to both quality of construction and site safety throughout construction,” said Grant Roe, managing director of Costin Roe Consulting, in response to the announcement of Lipman’s win for Woodlawn.
Comments on the project by MBA Awards judges were published on the MBA website as follows:
“This project was on a grand scale – 90,000m2 of site area – to use the Woodlawn Mine Site as a waste disposal facility. This required the property to be rehabilitated for agricultural use – no mean feat. The precision and orchestrated coordination of day-to-day operations judged was second to none, with the inclusion of elements such as 24m lengths of pipe installed within a 2mm tolerance, structural beams installed at 25m above ground level within 2mm +- tolerance, each welded joint x-rayed and certified. Integral to the cohesive manner in which the trades undertook their high-risk activities was the ability, where possible, to have trades working on their own designated multi work zones, mitigating the hazard of overlapping high-risk work activities when moving or installing infrastructure elements of a grand scale. A project where precision and wisely calculated decisions by the site team made quality the natural catalyst for excellent safety procedures on site to follow.”
