CCF Qld recognises state’s leading civil construction projects

The Civil Contractors Federation Queensland has awarded seven projects in its annual Earth Awards

The redevelopment of the Archerfield Airport was one of seven project winners celebrated at the Civil Contractors Federation Qld (CCF Qld) Earth Awards last week.

The CCF Qld Earth Awards recognise outstanding quality in civil construction by showcasing the best technologies and innovation used by civil contractors from across Queensland.

Awards were presented across seven groups according to their respective project value – ranging from below and up to $2 million through to projects valued greater than $150 million.

BMD Constructions, which was the principal contractor on Stage One of the Archerfield Airport Project, won at the Earth Awards in the category for projects valued between $5 to $10 million.

To complete Stage One of the project, BMD Constructions was required to upgrade the airport’s main runway, associated taxiways and infrastructure despite facing several rain delays and a re-sequenced schedule to ensure the project delivery deadline was met.

Throughout the project, the airfield remained open while an innovative cost saving strategy helped BMD Constructions save $2.37 million by implementing a recycling strategy which removed material disposal costs, reduced truck movements and minimised imported material.

CCF Qld says the collaborations between BMD and the Archerfield Airport Corporation (AAC) ensured the project was delivered to a high standard, adding that the innovative methodology used has the potential to be implemented to other airport upgrades across Australia.

CCF Qld chief executive Damian Long says the Earth Awards recognised the impressive engineering techniques and achievements by the industry over the past year.

“It is very exciting to be able to celebrate the 29th CCF QLD Earth Awards at this year’s Excellence in Civil Construction Awards night. CCF QLD prides itself on celebrating industry and it was fantastic to see so many members and industry stakeholders joining us on Friday night even in such an unpredictable climate with COVID-19 lockdowns happening across the nation.

“The majority of finalists for this year’s awards are members of ours. This demonstrates the volume and quality of infrastructure being delivered in Queensland by the companies we represent and work alongside.”
