The Liv Apartments project, proudly under construction by Georgiou Group, was featured in The West Australian yesterday.
The article touches on the impact the development will have on Queen Victoria Street in Fremantle and how the building will be the first WA project to receive environmental approval rating under One Planet guidelines.
Georgiou has 10 staff on site and four directly employed labourers and will employ up to 15 apprentices throughout construction.
Georgiou Group has commenced works on Stage 2 of the Warrego Highway duplication between Toowoomba and Oakey, valued at $160M.
Located on Toowoomba’s western outskirts between Charlton and Kingsthorpe, the project involves duplication of the Warrego Highway from Leesons Road to just west of the intersection with Kingsthorpe-Haden Road.
Scope of works involves construction of a new two-lane road parallel to the existing Warrego Highway with the new road serving as the eastbound lanes.
Chief Executive Officer John Georgiou said the company was delighted to be awarded the project on the back of a successful 2016.
“Our focus in 2016 was to build our reputation in the transport market through the successful delivery of transport projects across the East Coast of Australia,” he said.
“Having successfully delivered the Paradise Road Safety Upgrade in 2016 for the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and with another three projects set to finish mid-year, we’re on track to reach record revenue in Queensland.
“The award of this project solidifies our presence in Queensland and further builds on our reputation as a quality roads contractor in Australia.”
The project will improve motorist safety and capacity of the highway by providing separation between opposing traffic streams, intersection upgrades and new turning lanes to provide safe turning opportunities.
Works are scheduled for completion in February 2018. An average of 250 direct jobs will be supported over the life of the project.
Georgiou is currently delivering the Southport-Burleigh Road Six-lane Upgrade Stages 1 and 2 ($18.5M), Tinana Interchange Project, Olsen Avenue ($18M) and Telegraph Road ($11M).
Georgiou's building arm moves into growth phase
Thursday 23, February 2017
Georgiou Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Okill to the role of General Manager – Building WA after changes within their leadership team.
Mr Okill will take over from current General Manager Frank Dilizia who will move into the newly created role of New Business Manager as the company’s building operations move into their next phase of growth.
Mr Okill joins the company from ISG Plc, a global construction and engineering services company, where he has spent the past nine years as Managing Director of their South East Asia business.
Chief Executive Officer John Georgiou said with the Perth market remaining tight and highly competitive, the decision to focus our efforts onto sourcing new work will better position Georgiou for the next five years.
“Since 2008, Frank has been instrumental in growing Georgiou’s building capability, securing a number of new clients and significantly increasing the work-in-hand,” he explained.
“The addition of Steve into the role of General Manager Building WA will enable Frank to focus on the front end of the business while Steve is accountable for the overall performance of the WA business.”
The changes come on the back of the company appointing Eddie Sammut in late 2016 to support the organisation’s ongoing expansion of its building capabilities, in particular their entry into the east coast market.
“We’re really excited to welcome Steve to the business. His reputation as a builder and his leadership and direction will see Georgiou grow its building capability.”
With more than 20 years’ experience, Steve holds a Bachelor of Construction Management and Economics from the University of Canberra and has delivered key elements at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore including the Paiza Casino, Louis Vuitton and Hotel atrium.
Mr Okill commenced his role on February 13.
