McConnell Dowell’s Group Environmental Managers, Nicole Rogers has written an article that has featured in the Planning Institute of Australia's publication, New Planner.

‘Construction is traditionally seen as the ‘end of the pipeline’ in delivering the physical infrastructure that makes and supports our cities. Construction is the start of bringing planning to fruition and, as a result, constructors have a great responsibility in bringing those plans to life.’

The annual Australian based Graduate Training Programme for 2016 was held in the Melbourne Corporate office during the month of February over 2 separate weeks.

The first week saw a combination of 1st and 2nd year MCD Graduates participate in several formal training modules that included;

  • Contract Law & Administration
  • Essential Negotiation Skills
  • Manage Project Scope
  • Effective Stakeholder Engagement

The 2nd week of training saw 3rd year Graduates participate in;

  • Contract Law & Administration
  • Presenting for Results
  • High Performance Teams
  • Quality Management Essentials
  • Future Leaders

Upon completing these modules and their assessments MCD Australian Graduates are working their way towards obtaining a qualification of Certificate IV in Project Management Principles.

The two weeks of training was planned and received well by everyone and it was pleasing to see a cohort of Graduates coming together each year and getting to know each other better and share some work experiences.

Both groups were fortunate enough to have some time over a working lunch to network with various MCD Executives and Managers in including Scott Cummins who was actively involved in networking and taking Q&A’s with each group. Some tough questions were asked! Fair to say that the Trivia Night at the local hotel each week was also a hit.

A Graduation event will be held later in 2016 for those MCD Australian Graduates who have completed their training and assessments. The next formal training will occur again in February 2017.

McConnell Dowell is one of six businesses in the North Otago region of New Zealand to receive a financial grant to help improve employees’ literacy, numeracy and communication skills.

The collaboration with the Tertiary Education Commission, which was announced last week, aims to help participating businesses improve their health and safety status, as well as productivity, by upskilling employees. The initiative coincides with the introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, which comes into effect in April this year, and which places greater responsibility for occupational health and safety on everyone in the workplace.

“As a responsible employer, we need to be confident that all our workers understand all the content of their health and safety training, and can comply with the requirements,” says McConnell Dowell Managing Director Roger McRae.

“McConnell Dowell already runs a fully accredited private training school and supports a literacy and numeracy strategy to ensure our people go Home Without Harm every day. This new programme will increase our confidence that our people are able to read and interpret the Health & Safety rules and procedures used by the company."

One initiative McConnell Dowell has had in place for several years is the pocket-sized See-Say-Do notebook, which every employee is expected to carry with them every day. The mini-reporting forms are designed to make it easy to record hazards, incidents and other risks and report them in a timely way to a supervisor or Health & Safety advisor.

“The See-Say-Do notebooks have been really helpful in getting our people to notice and report hazards and incidents, so that we can avoid them in the future,” says Health and Safety Manager Chris Haefele. “This training will help improve that behaviour among those people who are not so confident with reading and writing.”

Learning and Development Manager Anand Naidu says that McConnell Dowell is delighted to participate in the Employer-Led Literacy programme.

“We know that literacy and numeracy skills are an area where we have the opportunity to provide more support,” he says. “We employ people from a very wide range of educational backgrounds, and we require them to complete some fairly complex training around Health and Safety.

“In areas like North Otago, where we employ a relatively small number of people, a programme like this enables us to do that.”

McConnell Dowell is pleased to announce the official opening of the IKEA Cheras project in Kuala Lumpur, 10 days earlier than originally scheduled.

With over 45,000 customers attending the first day of trading, Malaysia’s ‘biggest house warming party’ started with a traditional Swedish breakfast attended by family members of IKEA owners, IKEA senior management and Malaysian dignitaries. This was followed by a traditional Swedish log cutting ceremony to the tune of ABBA. Customers who had been eagerly lining up since early morning were released into the store at 9am.

The IKEA Cheras store is the 8th largest in the world and is expected to be in the top three for daily visitor numbers out of the 400+ IKEA stores globally. It has over 42,000m2 of retail floor space and 60,000m2 of underground car parking, which includes four road tunnels from the car parks to adjacent roads.

To achieve this project milestone the McConnell Dowell team of over 700 employees and subcontractors worked day and night 7 days a week for the past few months ensuring the building was safe, functional and ready for the constant stream of customers. This project was not without its challenges. However, the team worked tirelessly to overcome these challenges and ensured the opening date was achieved. 

Sitting proudly outside the store is the second tallest IKEA sign in the world. Watch the Youtube timelapse clip of its erection here.

One of the biggest infrastructure projects in the Queenstown area was officially started yesterday morning, when Minister of Transport Hon Simon Bridges turned the first sod at the Kawarau Falls new bridge site. 

McConnell Dowell has been awarded the construction of the NZ$22 million project to improve traffic capacity in the area by replacing an historic 90-year-old, one-lane bridge with a new two-lane bridge with footpath. The old bridge will remain in place and become part of the Queenstown Trail cycling and walking network, increasing safety for visitors and locals enjoying the Lake Wakatipu environment.

Expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2017, the new bridge will help accommodate the growing traffic volumes resulting from growth and commercial development in Frankton Flats, around Queenstown International Airport. This leads to delays at the bridge, especially during the peak winter ski and summer holiday periods, causing frustration for visitors, locals and freight operators. 

“McConnell Dowell is very pleased to be a part of this project to benefit the Queenstown community,” said McConnell Dowell Managing Director Roger McRae. ”This is an important project and technically challenging site, and we will take pride in delivering a truly excellent product.” 

To deliver the new bridge, McConnell Dowell is working with consultants Novare Design, Coffey International, Boffa Miskell and Hadley Consultants, with support from design checkers Arup NZ, Holmes Consulting and MWH.

The team will draw on collective experience from award-winning projects, such as the Lower Hatea River Crossing (LHRC) in Whangarei, the Makira steel arch bridge in the Solomon Islands and the Waitaki Bridges Replacement in Kurow. 

The bridge itself is designed to be attractive, durable and low maintenance as well as being built to withstand a one in 2,500 year earthquake.

The construction is designed to minimise disruption to river users, including tourism operators, and to preserve the sensitive river environment. A proactive stakeholder communications plan is in place to keep stakeholders, including the local community, informed of developments.
