Our Christchurch teams took out a range of awards at the recent Canterbury Civil Contractors New Zealand (CCNZ) Awards 2017. 

The iconic Gloucester Heritage Bridge Reconstruction project was a Stellar Recruitment winner for work from $1.5m to $5m despite being a high risk and logistically challenging one. The repair work involved partially deconstructing the existing damaged bridge by removing the existing concrete and installing new structural beams and placing a reinforced concrete deck to strengthen the bridge.

Michael Carstens received a special Judges award for his outstanding Project Management work on the Gloucester Heritage Bridge Reconstruction.

Brian Perry Civil took out the $5m and over category for its work on the 112 metre long Canterbury Earthquake National Memorial. 

With Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) Fletcher Construction (trading as Brian Perry Civil), were able to directly influence the design of the memorial wall with both costs and more critically construction time being reduced. The long, narrow worksite presented challenges from safety, environmental, and construction management perspectives. A key innovation was the use of ‘vinyl’ sheet piles, instead of traditional ‘steel’ sheet piles.

We’d also like to congratulate one of our Christchurch-based subcontractors, Trademark paving who won the Subcontractor of the Year Award for their work at the Justice Precinct. Project Manager Ben Panton says the award would not have been possible without the positive working relationship they’ve enjoyed with the Fletcher Construction team on what has been a challenging site.
