McConnell Dowell finalist for Australian Construction Achievement Award

The Australian Constructors Association together with Engineers Australia has announced McConnell Dowell as a finalist to compete for the 2017 Australian Construction Achievement Award (ACAA).

The independent judging panel for the ACAA identified six projects as finalists including McConnell Dowell's "Port Capacity Project - Maritime Works Package", delivered for the Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC).

About the project

In addition to the normal complexities of maritime rehabilitation and construction, the Project was delivered within an operational port environment and concurrently with four adjacent major construction contracts associated with the broader Port Capacity Project. McConnell Dowell worked collaboratively with client PoMC and adjacent contractors to successfully manage all interfaces and ensure cooperation with project stakeholders, the local community and Webb Dock Port Operators.

About the award

Now in its 20th year, the ACCA is the construction industry's most significant accolade and is supported by leading constructors, manufacturers, professionals and industry partners. The ACAA showcases the people and the projects within the construction industry that are setting new benchmarks around the world.

The overall project winner will be selected next year at the presentation event on Thursday 4 May 2017, in the Grand Ballroom at the International Convention Centre in Sydney.
