28 Project Manager • CAREER CENTRE 28 Project Manager CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NATIONAL WINNERS IN ALL CATEGORIES. ENTRIES THIS YEAR WERE VERY STRONG, WITH PROJECT SUCCESSES IN DIVERSE FIELDS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. HERE ARE THE WINNERS. CONSTRUCTION/ENGINEERING LESS THAN $100,000,000 Organisation: Queensland Rail Project: South Brisbane Station Upgrade Project The $100 million South Brisbane train station upgrade was an authentic restoration of Brisbane’s historic icon. Queensland Rail closed the station for continuous safe works for six weeks. Construction innovations, industry best-practice procurement, contract administration and design management processes have now been adopted as Queensland Rail standard. Remaining works are ongoing with only minor impact on normal station operations. Both customers and stakeholders alike have given positive feedback not only about the final product but also the way in which it had been implemented. CONSTRUCTION/ENGINEERING IN EXCESS OF $100,000,000 Organisation: Electranet Project: Adelaide Central Reinforcement Project The $190 million Adelaide Central Reinforcement (ACR) project is South Australia’s first hybrid-design indoor substation. The City West substation secures the electricity supply to Adelaide CBD and surrounds. The project included construction of a combined pedestrian/cycle/cable bridge across the Torrens River. A Condition Monitoring System is in place to monitor and control its performance. Working with local suppliers and contractors wherever possible, ElectraNet delivered the project two weeks ahead of schedule and to budget. Since December 2011, the assets have been in full operation, with uninterrupted electricity delivered to customers. DEFENCE/AEROSPACE Organisation: Sinclair Knight Merz Project: National Training Areas and Ranges Improvement Program (NTARIP) NTARIP was intended to augment the ongoing maintenance program by undertaking works that offer maximum contribution to the effectiveness of training areas and reduce ongoing maintenance costs. NTARIP achieved its objectives to return Category One ranges to a highly usable and safe state to maintain Defence capability, meeting Commonwealth obligations for safe workplaces, and public safety and environmental protection. One of the key success factors for this was SKM’s role as a single lead consultant providing a unified and collaborative program management team to manage all phases of program development and delivery. NATIONAL RESULTS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY Organisation: Tabcorp Holdings Limited Project: Technology Demerger Program Tabcorp established a Technology Demerger Program to enable the creation of a new company from its Casino business. The Demerger involved a complete separation of Casino technology from Wagering, Gaming and Keno. Tabcorp successfully separated more than 110 technology deliverables, establishing the Casinos Company (now Echo Entertainment Group) as a standalone entity, with technology independent to Tabcorp. The program delivered within the 12 month timeframe and $28.6 million budget without impacting the business’s 24-hour, seven-day operations. Efficiencies in the execution of the program enabled uplifting the core IT service capability in the organisation and providing key technology foundations for the future. TELECOMMUNICATIONS TELEPHONY Organisation: Optus Communications Pty Ltd Project: Qantas Lounges Wi-Fi Project Qantas was very keen to give its customers a faster, state of the art, free Wi-Fi solution in Qantas Lounges. There was a relatively high level of complexity due to the coordination between the many parties involved, as well as the integration of different technologies. Quality Management was essential and testing occurred before proceeding into the user acceptance testing phase. Progress was regularly monitored through initial on-site support, or by running remote usage reports to monitor how many users were using the solution as well as how the overall solution was behaving. SMALL PROJECTS Organisation: Royal District Nursing Service Ltd Project: Connected Wound Care Project The Connected Wound Care Project sought to address systemic barriers to best practice wound management to respond to a lack of consistency in practice within the Victorian community. The project team developed resources for use by nurses and individuals they cared for. As a result, the suite of health care guides and a diabetes foot kit was distributed to approximately 275 agencies across Victoria. Independent evaluation of the project concluded that the project was very successful in producing valuable educational materials and in strengthening partnerships to guide and support consistent wound management across Victoria.
