The CCF Earth Awards were held on Friday 8th August at the Pan Pacific Hotel and DM Civil was proud to be a finalist in 3 categories:
The entries in each category were outstanding and we acknowledge and congratulate all finalists on their successful projects.
We are thrilled to be awarded the winner of Category 2 for the Dwellingup New Water Source! Our client, the Water Corporation, had identified that the town of Dwellingup required an upgraded water supply due to insufficient capacity and a variable water quality from Dwellingerup Brook Dam. South Dandalup Dam was identified as a more reliable water source for the town.
The project commenced in June 2013 and was completed on time and within budget during one of the wettest winters on record. Our trenchless technology division utilised trenchless methodologies through the heritage listed Newton Street precinct, ensuring minimal disturbance in the town centre. Auger boring was used under the Hotham Valley rail line and resulted in no disruption to their service.
The section of pipeline along the Dwellingup Primary School was constructed during school holidays. Furthermore, our extensive and well planned traffic management along Del Park Road ensured access was available at all times.
We thank the Water Corporation and their project team for entrusting DM Civil with this project. We also thank and congratulate all employees who worked on or contributed to the overall success of this project. A fantastic achievement by all involved!
