Trenchless contractor Rob Carr has received a Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) NSW Earth Award for the company’s delivery of the microtunnelling and civil works subcontract for Sydney Water’s Green Square Stormwater Drain Project.
The annual awards recognise expertise, skill and innovation in civil construction.
Construction of the 2 km underground stormwater drain – from Epsom Road, Zetland to an existing stormwater system at Alexandra Canal, Alexandria – was developed by Sydney Water and the City of Sydney Council.
“This is a tremendous recognition for our team members who worked diligently for over 22 months on the largest contract in Rob Carr’s history,” said Rob Carr General Manager Angelo Soumboulidis.
“Not only did our team rise to the challenge, they also developed many innovations and process improvements, which have been applied across our business to boost safety and efficiency.
“Congratulations to our project team, and also to our supportive clients – the Drying Green (DG) Alliance including City of Sydney and Sydney Water.”
This project is part of a plan to provide stormwater services to accommodate growth and development in the Green Square area and is a key part of Sydney Water’s commitment to urban renewal and the utility’s Liveable Cities strategy.
The new drain is designed to reduce flooding in and around the Green Square Town Centre during torrential rain – particularly at Joynton Avenue and on Botany Road.
Sydney Water and the City of Sydney formed the DG Alliance with UGL Engineering, Seymour Whyte Constructions, Parsons Brinckerhoff and RPS Manidis Roberts to build the stormwater drain which is designed to reduce flooding in and around the Green Square Town Centre during torrential rain.
Rob Carr’s is now in the running for the CCF National Earth Awards to be presented on 16 November in Canberra.
