The Department of Public Works’ Project Services has won three accolades at the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) Achievement Awards..
Project Services won the Regional Development Award for its role in the construction of Skilled Park at Robina, the home of the Gold Coast Titans NRL team.
Queensland Public Works Minister Robert Schwarten said the new 27,000 seat stadium is considered the best regional stadium in Australia and boasts an international reputation as a ‘value-for-money’ arena based on its seating capacity, consumer amenities and corporate facilities.
"A new benchmark was set for ‘relationship’ project management during the construction of Skilled Park and through this professional approach the project exceeded many expectations,” he said.
"Teamwork and early engagement proved to be the key elements in the significant success of the Skilled Park project."
Senior Project Manager Billy Betts won an Individual Achievement Award was for his work on the construction of the Strand Police Beat in Townsville.
"Billy played a significant role in the team responsible for successfully transforming a left over portion of a road reserve in the city centre’s recreational hub, into a recognisable and prominent Police Beat facility," Mr Schwarten said.
Martin Miles also took out an Individual Achievement Award for his role as the director responsible for the construction and on time delivery of the new preparatory school building facilities in 467 prima ry schools throughout Queensland.
