Delta had already been shortlisted in two categories. This time it was successful. Fittingly for a Collaboration entry, the winning submission was a multi-agency approach. Multiplex was the managing contractor, Cays provided new steelwork design and supply, Wroxton brickwork installation, and Vaseng structural engineering.
Delta’s submission said: “We arranged a series of pre-commencement meetings that allowed the integrated build trades including; Cays Engineering, Perth Rigging, Vaseng and Wroxton to collaborate and define their requirements whilst identifying issues that may arise through the project.
Delta took the time to understand Perth Rigging’s scope and ensure they understood ours, this collaboration was vital to the success of both companies and the project.
“Our project team faced numerous challenges in the delivery of the new museum, from working in and amongst heritage buildings, to delivering an ambitious engineering design and innovative structural support systems, whilst collaborating with multi-tiered stakeholders.”
On being announced as award winner, Delta communications manager Damien Hanger said: “Thank you to our West Australia team, who delivered such a challenging project, and to our client Multiplex and to our project partners who share this recognition.”
