Aurecon recognised at AIPM 2020 Project Management Achievement Awards

Aurecon’s Old Quadrangle Redevelopment project for University of Melbourne was named National Sustainable Projects Winner.

27 November 2020 – Aurecon’s programme and project management work with clients, University of Melbourne and Department of Defence, plus Aurecon project manager, Dean Wilkie, was recognised by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) at the 2020 Project Management Achievement Awards announced in a virtual award ceremony last Wednesday, 25 November.

The PMAA is an annual awards programme presented by the AIPM to recognise outstanding achievement in project leadership across Australia. The AIPM is one of the most eminent authorities for project management practices and certification in the country, with over 8000 registered project professionals locally and internationally.

Aurecon’s Program Advisory Managing Principal, ANZ, Nathan Agnew, said the awards this year further demonstrated Aurecon’s strong track record for developing tailored project management solutions for a range of clients in an uncertain environment.

“Due to COVID-19, this year has been challenging and uncertain for Aurecon and our clients. The awards demonstrate Aurecon’s leadership in providing project management and delivery strategies that have enabled our clients to respond effectively. The breadth and depth of these projects also showcase how adaptable our people have been at learning quickly and finding innovative solutions to complex problems,” Mr. Agnew said.

“As Australia looks forward to 2021, it’s rewarding to know that we’re playing a role in helping our clients achieve their goals,” he added.

This project involved civil upgrade works to a 16-metre deep dam located at the Department of Defence’s Gallipoli Barracks.
