Project Manager : June July 2011
• NEWS Project Manager 6 The Ballina bypass project has won Best Workplace Health and Safety Management System – Private Sector award at this year ’s Safe Work Australia Awards. The $640 million federal and state-funded project involves building a dual carriageway from south of Ballina to north of Tintenbar in Queensland. RTA Chief Executive Michael Bushby congratulated the Ballina Bypass Alliance – a par tnership between the RTA, Leighton Contractors, AECOM, SMEC and Coffey Geotechnics. “The award recognises the Ballina Bypass Alliance’s commitment to workplace safety,” he said. “ The Ballina bypass project employs around 230 people and stretches 12 kilometres. With a construction site of this size ... not to mention the major bridge building, working near highway traffic , blasting, digging and lifting taking place, workplace safety must be a prime concern.” Work on the bypass is due to be completed in mid-2012. WE WILL NOW BE OPERATING OUR PROJECT MANAGEMENT SERVICES UNDER ONE UNIFIED BRAND Savills launches PM business PROJECTS ON THE SOCIAL NETWORK Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and ex-Googler Justin Rosenstein have unveiled a new project – a web-based collaboration application named Asana. Asana is an attempt to improve on current project management and collaboration software. In a presentation unveiling the Asana product, Rosenstein said information repositories that companies build to coordinate projects (such as wikis, Google Docs or high-cost enterprise collaboration applications) are rarely used by employees on a day-to-day basis. Low-tech tools such as Notepad or Post-it notes are more often used to organise their working lives. Asana , which attempts to fill the void with a simple task management tool, is due to be released to the public later this year. Ballina project wins national safety award Property adviser Savills has launched a fully-integrated project management business following the merger of its project management services with Incoll Management. Paul McLean, Savills CEO, said Savills Project Management capitalises on the combined market strengths of Savills and Incoll. “Since the merger, our Incoll and Savills project management teams have been working closely,” he said. “Our combined personnel, skill sets and resources are the same, but we will now be operating our project management services under one unified brand.” Savills Project Management has more than 170 project managers based across all Australian capital cities and various Savills Asian offices. Recognisable projects include the 161 Castlereagh Street tower in Sydney and schools for the Building the Education Revolution.
