The group recently received two awards at the Australian Concrete Repair Association Awards Seminar, in Sydney.
Water Infrastructure Group, which offers a combination of design, build, operate and maintenance services, was awarded up to $A500,000 for its Rehabilitation of Sewer Manholes project.
The project, which was completed for Moreton Bay Regional Council, was given a 2010 ACRA Award for Excellence.
Water Infrastructure Group’s Stijn Sampermans accepted the award at the ceremony, providing an overview of the winning project.Article continues below…
“It’s fantastic that Water Infrastructure Group’s efforts in this area have been recognised by the industry and these seminars also provide a great opportunity to share knowledge and get useful feedback on our innovations from industry experts,” Mr Sampermans said.
“As well as describing Water Infrastructure Group’s technical methodology and workflow for maintenance hole rehabilitation, I provided the industry audience details of our approach to community consultation and traffic control, which are key elements in the successful delivery of these types of projects.”
The project involved the rehabilitation of 75 maintenance holes located across Moreton Bay Regional Council’s area of operation and is expected to extend the life of the council’s assets for at least 50 years.
Water Infrastructure Group also received a Merit Award for a rehabilitation project for two sections of Sydney Water’s Northern Suburbs Ocean Outfall Sewer.
The project used a two-part epoxy mortar coating system that the company has refined over a number years to be an efficient, reliable and safe option for sewer rehabilitation.
