At DM Civil, we pride ourselves in paying attention to the needs of our clients since our clients are the reason for our continued existence as a construction firm. Our company management continually seeks to instil the attitude of “the customer comes first” into our project management as well as our field and administrative staff.
The final product delivered for DevelopmentWA in Stages 7B and 7C at Champion Lakes close to Armadale, has proven to reflect this ethos in that during the middle of the pandemic when staff were challenged with remaining healthy and actively following best practice to remain that way, unforeseen site conditions forced our project manager to re-sequence the works, materials were critically short and subcontractors were unable to deliver their work, we “found a way”.
We “found a way” by immediately communicating the changed site conditions to our client and to the project design consultant and Superintendent. The understanding and collaboration that followed this communication proved that there is no substitute for teamwork and collaboration when challenges are presented during a project.
With the project now behind us, we are pleased to reflect back on the challenges, as trying as they were, and to observe another stage of residential building lots produced by DM Civil on the shores of the Champion Lakes international standard rowing facility. The 2,000m long buoyed regatta course is home to national competition for rowing as well as kayaking and dragon boat racing. The Champion Lakes residential estate by DevelopmentWA now has a second entrance from Lake Road via a new roundabout constructed as a part of the works. This new entry road provides greater accessibility to residents and visitors to the lakeside amenity on offer at Champion Lakes.
Lot sales are going well and we expect that the design, standard of construction, location next to the rowing facility and general access to cycle and pedestrian paths around the lake as well as proximity to the Perth CBD and the airport will generate continued interest.
