Six major infrastructure and building projects have been announced as finalists for next year’s award, which is co-sponsored by InfraBuild.

The Australian Constructors Association (ACA) and Engineers Australia have announced the six finalists in the running to win the prestigious 2020 Australian Construction Achievement Award (ACAA). The award, co-sponsored by InfraBuild (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel) and other major businesses, recognises construction projects that showcase the skills, technology and innovation needed to identify and overcome complex project challenges.

Lindsay Le Compte, Executive Director, ACA, announced the winners and congratulated all finalists.

"These projects exemplify the world-class construction outcomes and solutions that Australia's construction industry and its supply chain can deliver for clients,” he said. “The range of skills, technology and innovation involved in these projects showcases the capacity of the industry and its ability to collaboratively identify and overcome complex project requirements."

The six finalists for the award, which will be presented at a gala event in Melbourne on 21 May 2020, are:

Newcastle Light Rail Fixed Instructure, New South Wales, by Downer EDI Works Pty Ltd

Sydney Metro Northwest Rouse Hill to Chatswood, New South Wales, by Northwest Rapid Transit


InfraBuild plays an essential role in projects such as these. For example:

InfraBuild Construction Solutions supplied 8000 tonnes of reinforcing and prefab cages to piling contractor Keller for the Darlington Upgrade. 

InfraBuild Construction Solutions also supplied approximately 4000 tonnes of prefabricated reinforced bar and mesh to the Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing Removal Project, which removed nine level crossings and installed five new elevated train stations. The upgrade to the rail infrastructure allowed it to support bigger, high-capacity trains and created a 22ha linear park beneath the elevated structure for the community.

InfraBuild congratulates all six finalists on their nomination for the 2020 ACAA award.

The ACA is the peak industry body in Australia representing the industry's largest construction companies. Engineers Australia represents the engineering profession responsible for, along with the constructors, the design and delivery of Australia's major infrastructure projects.
