Rob Carr has taken home the 2022 national award for civil construction at the National CCF awards in Canberra.
The microtunnelling specialist won the award in the $5 to $10 million category for its Gnangara Branch Sewer section 2 project, located in Western Australia.
The project, undertaken on behalf of client Water Corporation, involved installing a new pressure main to an existing sewer section.
The company’s expertise in microtunnelling saw it overcome a number of challenges for the project, including in-ground infrastructure and a limited time frame.
Teams completed four drives reaching a total 500 metres of microtunnelling, and managed to construct a DN1000 glass reinforced plastic, 259-metre microtunnel in 10 days.
The Gnangara project was automatically nominated following Rob Carr’s win at the CCF WA Awards in September.
Managing director Damien Maitre received the award on behalf of the company.
