Integrated property and construction group Pindan is celebrating picking up three honours at this year’s 2020 South West Master Builders Building Excellence Awards.
Pindan won Best Regional Project and Best Health Care Building in the $20-50 million category for its work on the redevelopment of the Warren Health Service in Manjimup, which finished in 2018.
The Warren Health Service is part of a $300 million capital works program delivered by the WA Country Health Service to develop and improve hospitals in 37 towns across the Wheatbelt, Great Southern, Mid-West and South-West regions.
Pindan Group Executive Director Tony Gerber said it was wonderful for Pindan to be acknowledged.
It’s great to win these awards as it was a fantastic project that we are very proud to have been part of and that positively changes the health landscape for residents in the area. The teamwork between the Government, consultants, hospital staff and our on-site team resulted in a highly successful project that also created good opportunities for local trades and businessesTony Gerber, Executive Director Pindan Group
The state-of-the-art $37.6 million Warren Health Service included a new emergency department, an expanded outpatient appointment area, a new ward, operating theatre, mental health consultation room, medical imaging facilities, consult rooms for visiting specialists, a palliative care room, and a family focused birthing suite.
Telehealth-enabled consultation rooms also paved the way for remote access to specialists, reducing the need to travel for expert care.
Pindan also collected the award for Best Education Building in the $20-50 million category for Cape Naturaliste College in Vasse.
The $23 million project for the WA Department of Education included the construction of new Design & Technology, Science, Health and Visual Arts buildings, refurbishments to the existing cafeteria, a new gymnasium, assembly undercover area, as well as a new hockey oval and sports shed, plus extensions to the existing basketball courts and car parking areas of the school.
Mr Gerber said Pindan was thrilled to have been acknowledged for the project.
“We have a long history of teaming up with the State Government on school projects and it’s rewarding to be helping transform the learning environments of WA students to help ensure their success,” he said.
Scott Davison, Managing Director Pindan Group, said he was thrilled the Awards were able to go ahead in the current climate.
We are thankful Master Builders Western Australia found a way to continue on with the Awards process despite the current challenging times because recognition of excellence plays an important role in encouraging the delivery of exceptional quality projectsScott Davison, Managing Director Pindan Group
