John Holland wins at Earth Awards

John Holland has been successful at the South Australian and Victorian Civil Contractor’s Federation (CCF) Earth Awards over the weekend.

The South Road Superway project took out the prestigious Earth Award for a project over $75m in South Australia, whilst the Airport Drive Extension and Steele Creek North Stormwater Enhancement project won the Earth Award for the same category in Victoria.

South Road Superway Project Manager, Jill Boag, said the project was the culmination of 10-years work by the team, taking the project from concept to completion.

“Superway was an exciting project, delivering the first managed motorway and the first match-cast post-tensioned segmental bridge built in South Australia,” she said.

“Our urban design concept of a tree scape used 63 individual curved piers, with a monolithically cast deck structure. Those complex shapes are striking and a challenge to deliver.”

Jill thanked the Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure SA, local engineering joint venture partner Leed Engineering) and our designers GHD, SMEC and bridge specialists from IBT.

Regional General Manager for VIC/SA/TAS & NZ, Trevor Hall, said he was very proud of both team’s successes.

“It’s a great example of John Holland’s strength in innovation and our understanding of the critical importance of urban design in major projects,” he said.
