Finalist at the Engineers Australia Excellence Awards!
Congratulations to the Fitzroy Gasworks Project team for finishing up as one of the 6 finalists at the Engineers Australia Excellence Awards – People and Projects Victoria!
Claire Weaver and Adrian Scott represented our team at the event.
Our team was engaged by the Victorian Government as Principal Contractor to remediate the former Fitzroy Gasworks located in the inner Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy North. The project was one of the most significant urban renewal projects undertaken in Australia from both a historical and environmental perspective, unlocking the former legacy site to enable an extensive urban renewal project.
The project delivered excellence across a range of engineering and applied science disciplines, including the significant feat of recycling, or regenerating more than 90 per cent of the 170,000 tonnes of highly contaminated wastes excavated throughout the project.
“The Fitzroy Gasworks Project was initially seen as a high-risk project with its confinement within a high density, urban setting, but Enviropacific has been able to manage these risks and consistently demonstrate to the community its ability to maintain a high level of safety and professionalism.” Adam Bradley – Senior Manager, Department of Treasury and Finance.
