The 2018 IS Awards were held in Sydney in October, with several major projects recognised for their contribution to sustainability in infrastructure.
The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) has recognised leaders in sustainability in infrastructure at its recent 2018 IS Awards held in Sydney.
Among the projects to win on the night were two Melbourne projects that collected Outstanding Achievement awards for achieving the highest IS rating scores in the previous 12 months: the Metro Tunnel Early Works in the ‘Design’ category and the Level Crossing Removal Project: Bayswater Alliance in the ‘As Built’ category.
The Metro Tunnel Early Works project achieved a Leading IS Design Rating with a predicted energy reduction of 39%, plus demonstrated a creative approach to heritage assessment and interpretation, and a forward-thinking supply chain engagement strategy.
The Level Crossing Removal Project: Bayswater Alliance achieved a Leading IS As Built Rating with a demonstrated 44% reduction in energy use, a comprehensive approach to climate change risk and adaptation measures and the implementation of an indigenous heritage component.
LIBERTY may assist projects to accrue IS rating tool points via a range of sustainability initiatives, including Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) on its ranges of structural steel, reinforcing steel and rail products.
LIBERTY extends its congratulations to all of the winners of this year’s IS Awards.
