York Civil has started the 2014 Calender Year with the award of three significant contracts; Black Creek Diversion Channel (Stanwell Corporation), Dysart Road Infrastructure Relocation (BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance) and Spring Gully Water Treatment Facility Feed Dam (Origin Energy).

Each project represents a key achievement for York Civil, further establishing itself in key market sectors including oil and gas, resources and power.

The Spring Gully project is significant as it is York Civil’s first oil and gas project. The strength of York Civil’s Integrated Management System was a key factor in the awarding of the project, due to its compliance with Origin Energy’s stringent health, safety, environmental and quality requirements, across a three stage audit.

Black Creek Diversion Channel is York Civil’s first project with Stanwell Corporation and the largest channel diversion ever constructed by York Civil.


The third project, Dysart Road Infrastructure Relocation, is York Civil’s fifth project for BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance and eighth contract in the Bowen Basin, emphasising York Civil’s capabilities in delivering civil infrastructure to mining clients.

York Civil’s Queensland State Manager, Simon Green, was delighted with the outcome, and said, “To start the year with three wins in a competitive market is an outstanding result.”

“Three projects in three industries underlines our position in the Queensland market as flexible contractor capable of delivering multi-disciplinary scope of works across different sectors.”

The three sites will provide work for more than 200 personnel, and support many subcontractors and suppliers in regional Queensland.

With over 900,000m3 of earthworks required across the three sites, much of York Civil’s extensive and diverse fleet of civil construction plant and equipment has been mobilised to the sites, including dozers, excavators, dump trucks and water trucks.
