Kane wins Excellence in Health and Safety and Excellence in Commercial Buildings awards

25th January, 2022

On Friday evening, Kane Constructions was awarded the Excellence in Health and Safety award for the Docklands Studios Stage 6 project and the Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings $15 - $20 million award for the Puffing Billy Railway Lakeside Discovery Centre.

A safety culture isn't just reserved for the workplace. It's much easier to embrace safety as a lifestyle where it is a priority no matter what environment you are in.

There is no better example of the commitment to embracing safety as a lifestyle than the team showed in the construction of Docklands Film Studio 6.

Congratulations to the Kane and Development Victoria project teams as well as our subcontractors on the award and thank you for your genuine focus from the get-go in developing safe engineering solutions to build a complex structure, and your ongoing commitment to workplace health and safety, mental health and wellbeing throughout the project.

A terrific outcome!

Kane would like to acknowledge the Docklands subcontractor team including Signal and Hobbs, Apex Welding & Steel Fabrication, Concrete Precast Systems, Associated Rigging Australia, Ortech Industries and Andrew Baigent Consulting Engineers.

Kane would also like to acknowledge the assistance of the Healthy Tradie Project throughout the delivery of the Docklands Studios project.

The Puffing Billy Railway Lakeside Discovery Centre was successful in winning the $15 - $20 million Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings award.

The new Discovery Centre was delivered significantly ahead of schedule and features a café, commercial kitchen, visitor information services, function rooms, staff offices, retail, educational facilities and amenities.

The successful completion of this complex structure is a credit to the Kane team and subcontractors and is a testament to the collaborative and close working relationship formed with key stakeholders including Puffing Billy Railway, project design engineers Wood & Grieve Engineers (now Stantec) and architect TERROIR.

Congratulations to the project teams on the delivery of these outstanding projects.
