22 Project Manager • CAREER CENTRE 22 Project Manager CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THE NATIONAL FINALISTS IN THE PROJECT OF THE YEAR CATEGORY OF THIS YEAR’S AIPM PROJECT MANAGEMENT ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS. FROM A VERY STRONG POOL OF SUBMISSIONS, THESE PROJECTS STOOD OUT AS THE BEST OF THE BEST. ELIZABETH MACARTHUR AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTE NSW PUBLIC WORKS The Elizabeth Macarthur Agricultural Institute (EMAI) is the Department of Primary Industries’ Centre of Excellence for Animal and Plant Health, diagnosing, controlling and preventing animal and plant disease. Opened in 1990, the laboratories needed an upgrade to ensure that the EMAI continued to play a crucial role in the state’s response to disease incursions. NSW Public Works managed the design and construction phases for this multi-faceted, highly technical $56.7 million upgrade of laboratory facilities to the latest international standards, delivering within budget and 12 months earlier than planned. By the facility’s very nature, the project was complex, requiring new plant biosecurity facilities capable of handling a large-scale emergency plant disease outbreak, new high level containment facilities to expand EMAI’s capacity to handle a large-scale emergency animal disease outbreak, upgrades of existing animal and plant health facilities to meet current regulations and standards, and upgrades to site infrastructure including waste management, power, gas, ICT, site security and stormwater management. This project provided world-class biosecurity laboratory, contaminated waste and building management systems more than 12 months ahead of schedule and within budget. SOUTH BRISBANE STATION UPGRADE PROJECT QUEENSLAND RAIL The $100 million South Brisbane train station upgrade restored Brisbane’s historic icon within budget and to schedule. The station’s heritage-listed status, unknown modification history and location in a busy inner city residential, business and tourist precinct posed significant challenges for the team. For Queensland Rail (QR), the station’s refurbishment involved a six-week full station closure, continuous safe works for six weeks, construction innovations now adopted as QR-standard, industry best-practice procurement, contract administration and design management processes. With substantial experience in station upgrade design, local architects The Buchan Group undertook the design for the upgrade. The Stations & Facilities Projects team in QR managed the project, while the contract to build was awarded to Hutchinson Builders in September 2011. The multiple layers of paint and poor roof-drainage systems had resulted in significant deterioration of the integrity of the external brick walls. Many parts of the station building did not comply with the Building Code of Australia or current QR standards for customer accessibility and safety. Modifications addressed these issues and incorporated features demonstrating QR’s commitment to sustainability and customer service. winners CHAPTER PROJECT OF THE YEAR
