Bridge, Bus Station, Boardwalk & Subdivision - BIG WINNERS at Civil Contractors awards
The 2018 Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) Earth Awards were held at the National Arboretum last night. In attendance were over 260 industry participants and invited guests who witnessed a display of the best civil construction projects undertaken in the ACT and surrounding region during 2017/2018.
The CCF ACT Branch is a member-based, employer association that represents and promotes the interests of civil contractors in the ACT. CCF ACT prides itself on being the voice of the civil construction industry and advocates for the interests of its members to all levels of government. CCF members are involved in a variety of projects and activities including the development and maintenance of civil infrastructure such as roads, bridges, dams, community parks & infrastructure, sub-divisions and more.
Peter Middleton, President of CCF ACT Branch and Chair of the Civil Sector Council of Master Builders ACT said that the event showcased the efforts of locally based construction companies in their role as the providers of the community's infrastructure requirements, and is a credit to all of their employees who took part in the projects.
"In addition to producing quality works, a significant feature of local ACT civil companies is their policy of directly employing permanent construction teams and minimising the use of temporary subcontractors. ACT CCF members always seek to partner with the ACT Government in achieving high levels of employment standards, site safety and value in the expenditure of the tax-payer dollar,” Peter said. “The annual awards night is our opportunity to reflect upon the last 12 months, our role in the development of Canberra's built environment and to celebrate tangible achievements."
