ALLROADS Making Indigenous Engagement a Priority

As part of our commitment to increasing Indigenous participation in our project delivery, ALLROADS recently held an Indigenous Engagement Practices Workshop at our Shailer Park Head Office.

Run in conjunction with ISCC – Indigenous Supply Chain Connections, the primary objective of the workshop was to develop a greater understanding around the strategy required to better position ourselves with Indigenous communities throughout Queensland.

Specific topics covered over the day included:
• Indigenous Procurement Policy;
• Frameworks for effective Indigenous Engagement;
• Understanding Government and resource companies contractual requirements for Indigenous Participation Plans;
• How to find and engage Indigenous businesses;
• How to sensitively engage with Indigenous stakeholders; and
• Developing a strategy to round out the actions from the above topics.

ISCC’s professional approach and guidance during the workshop was second to none and provided ALLROADS with the information and tools required to get the ball rolling in this area.

ALLROADS looks forward to putting our strategy into action and collaboratively working with the many Indigenous communities across Queensland to help mentor, train and upskill them in the civil, mining and infrastructure sectors.

Westfield Coomera Town Centre Site Taking Shape

In February this year, ALLROADS commenced works on Stage 1 of Scentre Groups’ $1billion Westfield Coomera Town Centre Development which has seen the deployment of over 70 trucks and over 40 different pieces of machinery at the Foxwell Road site since the first sod was turned.

To track the progress of the works, ALLROADS’ have commissioned South Pacific Aerials to take monthly shots of the project site and as can be seen from the most recent photographs; at only three months into the project, the site is already taking shape.

This is largely in part of to ALLROADS implementation of a specific bulk earthworks strategy that as seen ALLROADS complete approximately 240,000m3 of earthworks operations, including the export of 75,000m3 of topsoil material offsite and supply and install of 55,000 tonnes of capping material.

To combat recent weather events, ALLROADS have worked closely with Red Sand Ecology to develop and implement their own detailed erosion and sediment control plans for the site, which have seen the impacts of 100mm+ rain events minimised.

In adopting this hands on approach to managing the program ALLROADS continues to track well against the initial program and are positioned well to achieve early handover dates for their client, Scentre Group.

ALLROADS Grows Defence Works Capability

2016 has seen ALLROADS further develop their capabilities within the Defence sector having successfully undertaken multiple minor works packages for Spotless at the RAAF Amberley Air Force Base.

Capitalising on this experience, the Group has now secured a major civil works subcontract for Lendlease as part of their Defence Air Traffic Management System and ADF Air Traffic Control Complex Infrastructure Project – stages 9 and 13 at the Amberley base.

The $4.5m contract will see ALLROADS undertake construction of access roads and hardstands, bulk earthworks, stormwater, roadworks, kerbing, pavements, construction of temporary carparks and soft and hard landscaping.

These new works in 2016 follow on from ALLROADS previous successful involvement in the construction of the Wide Bay Training Facility in Tin Can Bay, which saw ALLROADS complete over $15m of works for this critical Defence infrastructure project.

Works for Lendlease commenced in November 2016 and are expected to continue through to late 2017.

ALLROADS Group 10 Year Celebrations Draw to a Close

The past 12 months have served as a significant milestone for the ALLROADS Group as we celebrated 10 years in the Queensland Civil Construction industry.

It was September 2005 when Bayside Civil commenced operation. With no machines and no financial backing, Jon Fulton, Dave Hebson and Dan Fulton had nothing more than 2 old cruiser utes to share and a determination to work hard and succeed.

From there the company has expanded launching QLD Civil in 2008, before the launch of the first incarnation of Allroads in May of 2010. In 2013 the decision was made to draw the three companies together to both simplify and strengthen our business offering and thus saw the integration of Bayside Civil, QLD Civil and Allroads under one corporate identity; ALLROADS.

Managing Director, Dan Fulton, puts the ongoing success and growth of the business down to the people who have worked for the Group and its entities, knowing that any company is only as strong as the people who represent it.

“We have guys here who have been with us for the full 10 years, you can’t fault that dedication and commitment,” Mr Fulton said.

“We are also lucky to have a group of staff so passionate about the business. As a Director, I could not ask for a better group of people to be out on site or in the office representing ALLROADS each day.”

The Group’s 10 year celebrations culminated in a Gala Night held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Gala gave the Directors a chance to thank staff for their ongoing hard work, celebrate the successes of the past 10 years and also provided the opportunity to pay special recognition to long serving staff members.

ALLROADS Awarded DTMR Bruce Highway Contract

Following recent upgrading of our Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads prequalification to R3/B2/F50, ALLROADS have been awarded a significant safety barrier upgrade project along the Bruce Highway around North Lakes, north of Brisbane.

Working from the Pine River Bridge north to Anzac Avenue, the contract will see ALLROADS undertake shoulder widening, paving, surfacing and installation of a wire rope safety barrier along the centre median strip.

As would be expected when works are occurring on one of Australia’s busiest National Highways; detailed planning and a well-executed construction program will be critical, with the ALLROADS crew only having a six hour nightly window to undertake the works.

This effective project management approach is expected to see the project completed on schedule in October 2016.

ALLROADS: The Agricultural Sector Specialists

On the back of our successful undertaking of the bulk earthworks at Carr Farm and further building on our solid reputation for undertaking works in the South West and Darling Downs regions; ALLROADS are looking to further position ourselves as the Rural Civil Works Experts.

Focussing on feedlot developments, ALLROADS have set-up a special unit within the company to ensure we are specifically meeting the requirements of this unique works sector.

This commitment to building our presence in this market has seen ALLROADS recently purchase a number of new larger Scrapers, Dozers and Graders; to further bolster our existing extensive fleet of plant and equipment. The company has also formed a number of strategic partnerships with specialist designers and building contractors as we look to provide potential clients with a “one-shop” solution for their expansion and development needs.

Following a recent successful trade exhibit at the 2016 Farmfest Event in Toowoomba, ALLROADS will also be exhibiting at the upcoming Commonwealth Bank AgQuip Field Days event in Gunnedah, NSW from the 16th – 18th August 2016.

ALLROADS Achieve DTMR Prequalification Upgrade

ALLROADS are pleased to announce that we have recently achieved an upgrade of our Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads accreditation under the Austroads National Prequalification System being awarded a prequalification level of R3/B2/F50.

The prequalification allows ALLROADS to tender for road construction and rehabilitation projects with increased complexity and project values and comes on the back of our proven track record for delivering more complex road construction and civil infrastructure projects.

This achievement also further demonstrates ALLROADS commitment to maintaining high standards of QHSE and project management excellence across our project delivery.

Catwalk, Hand Rails & Safety Chain

Get the Green Machine on Your Site

The Green Machine is ALLROADS uniquely designed and manufactured Site Sediment Treatment Tank.

It is designed to be utilised on sites that do not have a functioning design sediment basin or as an interim measure where runoff from part of a site still needs to be treated.

Special features of the Machine include:

  • Large effective treatment and storage capacity with small footprint (ideal for sites which are too small for a design sediment basin);
  • Fully Hot-dip Galvanized to resist corrosion;
  • Setup on heavy duty skids for ease of manoeuvrability around the jobsite (also has designated lift-points for 4-legged sling);
  • Twin 2” male camlock “raw water” connection points (permits two flex drive pumps to be connected simultaneously);
  • Elevated non-slip Catwalk to access the flocculation treatment tray (with regulation ladder, handrail and safety chains);
  • Removable dual inlet pipes to permit removal of safety screen and to access the removable flocculation tray;
  • Multiple treatment compartments separated by “baffle weirs” with lockable safety screens – allows various grades of geotextile cloth to be “hung down” inside each compartment (as a secondary protocol) to aid, or to simply to speed up the filtration process;
  • Eight waste plugs for easy maintenance;
  • External Heavy Duty Manifold with four ball valves to permit selective drawdown from each compartment;
  • 3” Camlock at end of manifold to draw water directly into a watercart or larger pump;
  • Can be trickle fed and used for temporary onsite water detention OSD and for reuse as construction water, or as a drop tank setup on a turkey mound.

To date ALLROADS have rolled out the Green Machine on a number of significant projects including our current undertaking of works at Westfield North Lakes, Grand Central Shopping Centre Redevelopment Toowoomba, the $8.3m Garden City Shopping Centre Redevelopment Civil Works and the Enoggera Barracks 1st Regiment Civil Works.

Hire of the Machine is only $400 per week (excluding consumables) and can be arranged by contacting ALLROADS Head Office on 07 3829 9436.

ALLROADS Group Celebrates 10 Year Milestone

Allroads_10yr_Logo_RGB

2015 will be a significant year for the ALLROADS Group as we celebrate 10 years in the Queensland Civil Construction industry.

It was September 2005 when Bayside Civil commenced operation. With no machines and no financial backing, Jon Fulton, Dave Hebson and Dan Fulton had nothing more than 2 old cruiser utes to share and a determination to work hard and succeed.

In September 2008, Bayside Civil decided that it was the right time to enter the subdivision construction market, branding the new venture QLD Civil. Again, it was through hard work and determination that the Group continued to grow.

To complement their existing contracting activities, in May of 2010, the Group further expanded its growth into Infrastructure and building works with the formation of Allroads.

This new company saw the Group start to undertake more diverse civil infrastructure projects including the Carindale Shopping Centre Redevelopment External Works, Western Downs Substation Civil Works and the companies largest contract to date; the $15.4million Wide Bay Defence Training Facility Construction.

In 2013 the decision was made to draw the three companies together to both simplify and strengthen our business offering and thus saw the integration of Bayside Civil, QLD Civil and Allroads under one corporate identity; ALLROADS.

Today the Group has grown into an established mid-tier civil contractor. We employ over 150 staff, maintain premises in Logan, Ipswich and Oakey, own over 110 pieces of plant and equipment and our systems hold ISO accreditations in Safety, Quality and Environmental Management.

As our Group continues to evolve, our business remains underpinned by the original founding principles, values and ethics of:

• Valuing our clients,
• Conducting ourselves with honesty and integrity at all times,
• Communicating with all stakeholders and being user friendly,
• Delivering flexibility, practical solutions and high quality outcomes,
• Operating safely and sustainably at all times.

Ben Johnson Receiving His Award

ALLROADS Celebrates Staff Success

There have been plenty of reasons to celebrate over the past two months, with the achievements of a number of ALLROADS staff being recognised at recent Awards nights.

At the Construction Skills Training Centre (CTSC) Annual Awards in September, Tom MacLachlan was nominated for the CSTC Civil Construction Certificate 3 Trainee of the Year Award, while ALLROADS were nominated for Civil Construction Employer of the Year.

Giving further cause for celebration, ALLROADS Labourer Ben Johnson was the winner of the High Achievement Award 3rd Stage at the CFMEU QLD Apprentice Awards Night in October.

ALLROADS Group General Manager, Peter van Esseveld, said it was great to see ALLROADS staff being recognised at an industry level.

“While we often celebrate the success of our staff and projects internally, it has been great to see both individual staff members and the ALLROADS team as a whole achieving this well-deserved level of industry recognition. I encourage all staff to get involved in both training and Awards opportunities and look forward to celebrating more achievements in the coming months,” Peter said.
