Following our 2015 CCF WA Earth Award for the $25.5M Three Bridges Project, Georgiou is looking to repeat its success after recently being named finalist with three projects in this year's awards.
The CCF Earth Awards recognise excellence in all areas of project delivery including construction management, innovation, and environmental and social management. Stage three of the Claremont on the Park project will look to take out the $10M-$30M category, with the Reid Highway Upgrade Project vying for the title in the $30M-$75M category, and the Gateway WA Perth Airport and Freight Acess Poject a finalist in the over $75M category.
Stage three of Claremont in the Park saw our team work through a number of complex disciplines – including remediation, demolition, installation, roadworks, hardscaping and landscaping. The final product is a modern community, featuring residential and commercial spaces with abstract art and stunning water features.
The Reid Highway Project involved the duplication of 2.2km of carriageway and a further 2km of carriageway widening, three new bridges, a loop ramp and associated works. Vital to the WA Government's plan to improve traffic congestion in Perth's eastern suburbs, our project team shared the road with 75,000 cars who frequented the Reid Highway/Malaga Drive intersection each day.
As part of the Gateway WA Perth Airport and Freight Access Project - Georgiou were involved in the widening of 7km of the Tonkin Hwy, upgrading 3km of Leach Hwy, constructing 11 bridges, the upgrade and construction of multiple interchanges, building 21km of shared path and local connections including seven underpasses, installing 7km of noise walls, and planting more than one million plants as part of Main Roads' largest landscaping project.
Winners will be announced on Friday August 12 in the Grand Ballroom at Crown Perth.

Traffic efficiency and road safety on the Bruce Highway is set to improve following the award of a roadworks contract to National construction company, Georgiou Group.
The $38 million project, initiated by the Queensland Government, will see the Bruce Highway interchange at Tinana undergo significant improvements in an effort to improve traffic management and safety and support Fraser Coast regional growth.
Georgiou Group CEO John Georgiou said the company is pleased to be continuing to play a key role in the improvement of Queensland’s road network, with this contract the third of its kind awarded to the national building construction, engineering and property development company.
“Since 2012, the Georgiou Group has completed significant road upgrades on the Bruce Highway that have resulted in long term benefits to road users and the State,” he said.
“I am pleased to once again join the Queensland Government for the Tinana Interchange upgrade works and to deliver another great infrastructure project to the Queensland community.”
Changes to the Tinana Interchange include construction of a northbound off-ramp, relocation of the Three Mile Road intersection about 300m south of its current location, removing the southbound off-ramp to Gympie Road, upgrading the existing southbound on-ramp and incorporating a wide centre line treatment.
Previous Bruce Highway projects completed by Georgiou Group are the realignment of the Walker Street intersection completed in 2013 and the Bruce Highway Flood Recovery Works from Kolan River to St Lawrence, which commenced in February 2014.
Works on the interchange will commence in August 2016 and are scheduled for completion late 2017.
