Conversion of the former Perth Airport T-intersection at Fauntleroy Avenue to a roundabout has commenced! The closure of Brearley Avenue has forced a high volume of traffic to this priority intersection, making it essential for our team to detail and stage the works to limit disruption for existing tenants at the Airport.
Stay tuned! Your journey to Qantas Valet Parking will be made lighter soon!
The face of Darwin’s waterfront is changing in a big way. Our team was keen to hear more about Chinese-owned port operator Landbridge’s $250M luxury hotel project and related precinct – to include skybridge to the CBD, distribution facilities and related infrastructure – at the Palmerston Regional Business Association’s networking event this week.
With the iconic Starwood Hotels & Resorts at the nucleus of this new development, proposed benefits to the community are to satisfy the demand for fine accommodation, provide a significant economic boost and generate 500+ jobs during the construction in addition to hundreds of ongoing jobs when it opens.
The NT Government has shared initial project information here: https://nt.gov.au/…/major-p…/darwin-luxury-hotel-development
In recognition of our 40th year in business, over the next few weeks we’ll be celebrating by sharing flashbacks to some of our team’s milestones.
We’re proud of our history and look forward to reminiscing with those who have worked with us throughout this time!
Clearing and fill for future road reserves and commercial sites at Perth Airport is under way! Georgiou Group has continued to make great earthworks progress across the 10 hectare site, which is being undertaken to increase the commercial hub adjacent to Horrie Miller Drive.
If you’ve driven along the Great Eastern Highway on your way to Northam or York, WA recently, you may have noticed that the new BP The Lakes Roadhouse is recently completed!
Our team began work on this commission in February 2016, undertaking design and supervision during construction, including the station structures, earthworks, stormwater drainage, pavements & hardstands, as well as design for external road intersection mods and upgrades to the Great Southern Highway and service road intersections. Be sure to stop in if you’re in the area!

Every little bit helps. Our social committee did a brilliant job of organising a Sweetheart morning tea by gold coin donation, to raise awareness and funds for children with heart disease (born with or acquired).
HeartKids work to provide funding for research to reduce the incidence of Childhood Heart Disease and to reduce current mortality rates. This year during Sweetheart Day week, they raised over $350k across Australia toward this incredible cause. Well done HeartKids!

Stylish start to the 25th UDIA National Congress event! The poolside Bianco themed LendLease Welcome Reception was a perfect way to unwind and connect after a day filled with keynote presentation from David Rohrsheim, CEO of Uber Aus/NZ, and a collection of study tours of Perth + surrounds. There are a number of us kicking around the event over the next 3 days – come say Hello!
Out on site at the new Woolworths Butler, our civil design team has made use of large EcoAID underground stormwater chamber storage cells to comply with City of Wanneroo’s requirements for a 100-year ARI event.
Working with variable ground conditions with limestone pinnacles meant exploring new solutions! Suitable for use under car parks, driveways, highways and sporting fields, these tough chambers will be used in place of traditional soakwells, to increase the depth to the existing limestone while providing necessary storage volumes. These cells also provide the most cost efficient design for the site.
Property Council caught up with our own Miriam Salter to chat about what it takes to build a rewarding career in the industry. Extended interview with Miriam, here: http://www.pfeng.com.au/…/property-council-australia-speak…/
While some of the industry’s young guns never planned a career in property, others grew up with construction pumping through their veins. We checked in with some rising stars to discover what drew them to property and what they’ve learnt as they climb the career ladder.
The first stage of the Mandurah Forum Shopping Centre redevelopment is open!
Since January 2015 our civil team has been steadily working on the design for internal car park extensions, stormwater drainage detention, and coordination of main service trench servicing for the site. We’re delighted to see the first stage of completed construction, which ultimately includes road upgrade works at Pinjarra and Mandurah Roads for client Vicinity Centres.
More Public Open Spaces complete!
Lot 1011 Yanchep Beach Road will be a 556 lot residential development located north of Yanchep Beach Road in WA. This completed POS is in Stage 1 of the 10 stage development for Primewest Pty Ltd.
Our team has been involved in development of the overall structure plan, bulk earthworks for the full 42ha site and services. Through the engagement of an environmental consultant, grass trees were salvaged across the site prior to clearing, which have been reused in the newly created POS. Extensive regions of natural bushland have been retained across several POS spaces to ensure landscaping budgets are focused on key landmarks.
