One of the Safest Hands in the Land

York Civil Safety Supervisor, Scott Harvey, was announced as the recipient of the “Best Individual Workplace Health and Safety Award” at the South Australian 2014 Civil Contractor Federation Industry Awards.

Scott was recognised for his safety role on the Goodwood Junction Rail Upgrade Separation. He was responsible for controlling personnel exposure to risk, through detailed reviews of employees’ and subcontractors’ proposed work methods.  He was also recognised for his supervision of high risk activities, encompassing confined space, working at depth, working at heights and the interaction of personnel with plant equipment.

York Civil Returns to Prominent Hill

OZ Minerals recently awarded York Civil the Stage 3 Raising Construction Work for the Tailings Storage Facility at Prominent Hill copper and gold mine in South Australia.

The works include bulk earthworks to raise the existing tailings dam embankments using compacted clay mine waste, and raising the central access causeway.

The project will be delivered in a tight program, transporting 780,000m3 of stockpile material at an average distance of 2.5km per load.

The project is a welcomed return to Prominent Hill where York Civil delivered three packages between 2007 and 2009 valued at over $37 million.

These projects included bulk and detailed earthworks and structural concrete works on the mine process plant, and construction of bored footings for the 132kV Transmission Line from Olympic Dam to the Prominent Hill mine site.

Queensland Hat Trick to Start the Year

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.

New York office in New South Wales

York Civil is pleased to announce it has opened up its fourth national office, located in North Ryde, Sydney.

Having expanded to Queensland in 2008 and Western Australia in 2012, the New South Wales Office will seek to establish the York Civil brand across its four key market sectors; Transport, Resources, Power and Water.

York Civil breaks ground in WA

After establishing its Western Australia office 2012, York Civil breaks ground with the award of a major contract for the $31 million Stage 2 North Quay Rail Terminal construction.

The project for Fremantle Ports involves expanding the terminal from 400m to 690m with the aim of reducing truck traffic to and from the port. By improving access for container transfer on and off cargo trains, thereby enabling shorter turnaround times, it is hoped that the expansion will assist in making rail a more competitive option as a means of transporting containers to and from the busy port.
