Ellenbrook Estate has recently won two accolades at the 2017 Urban Development Institute Australia Awards for Excellence – a testament to Georgiou and our work over the past 20 years.
The estate beat out stiff competition from four other entries to take home the Masterplanned Development Award as well as the Russel Perry Award for urban development excellence – an award that recognises the best project across all categories.
To date, Georgiou has delivered more than $500 million of works on the Estate since 1995.
Final touches complete on safer, smoother Tinana Interchange
Tuesday 26, September 2017
Georgiou’s Queensland team has completed the final works on the $38 million Tinana Interchange Upgrade for client, Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR).
The 14-month project included the construction of a northbound off-ramp (including demolition of existing bridge overpass); the relocation of the Three Mile Road intersection about 300 metres south of its current location; removing the southbound off-ramp to Gympie Road; and upgrade of the existing southbound on-ramp and incorporation of a wide centre line treatment to provide greater separation of opposing directions of traffic.
Federal Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Darren Chester said he was pleased to see the finishing touches on the project complete, with the upgrade set to benefit thousands of motorists.
“Today’s formal completion is an important step towards delivering a safer, more efficient Bruce Highway for motorists and industry throughout Queensland,” he said.
“We are contributing $6.7 billion to the joint $8.5 billion Bruce Highway Upgrade Programme to build a better, safer highway and this new interchange is just one of the improvements making a difference to motorists.”
Since the opening of the new interchange last month, Georgiou has completed final works on the road surface, as well as landscaping, installing guard rails and removing the temporary side track connections with the team now demobilised from site.
The project, located on Bruce Highway approximately 5km southwest of Maryborough, services more than 11,000 motorists daily and is a notorious accident blackspot in the area.
Georgiou pours the winning blend at CIA Awards
Thursday 07, September 2017
Georgiou cemented their reputation in the concrete industry last weekend, taking home not one but three awards at the 2017 WA Awards for Excellence in Concrete!
Entered by both Georgiou Group and project partners BG&E, Main Roads WA and Pritchard Francis, Georgiou took home the Commercial Building and Infrastructure Project categories with our Curtin University Building B410, Reid Highway and Gateway WA Projects.
Held once every two years, the Awards for Excellence in Concrete recognise and publicise the many significant contributions to excellence in concrete design, construction and materials within Australia.
This year’s awards were a great outcome – Georgiou was a first-time entry in this year’s awards and to come out with three wins across our business is quite remarkable.
Congratulations to everyone involved on both projects for delivering three high-quality projects that have been recognised at several awards ceremonies across the State.
