November 03, 2010 -- AAM’s innovative capabilities have been recognised with the receipt of two awards at the 7th Annual Asia-Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards.
These Awards celebrate the pinnacle of success for the spatial industry and are jointly hosted each year by the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI) and the Spatial Industries Business Association (SIBA). The industry Awards focus on the excellence of organisations throughout the Asia-Pacific during 2010.
AAM was the recipient of both the J.K Barrie Award: Best Industry Project of the Year and the Infrastructure and Construction Award. The J.K Barrie Award we won represents the pinnacle of achievement in the spatial industry and is the highest award the judges can confer.
The winning project which received both national awards was entitled: ‘Measure, Monitor, Mapping’ Campaign on BlueScope Steel’s Number 5 Blast Furnace Reline Project and was a joint submission with our client, BlueScope Steel.
The ‘Measure, Monitor, Mapping’ project was considered by the judges to be one of the more complex tasks undertaken in its field. The judges commented that this winning project was an excellent demonstration of how surveyors have adapted their knowledge and experience to capture high quality measurements within a short time frame under hazardous conditions.
The objective of the Reline Project was to renovate a 27-storey tall furnace and facilitate its safe and efficient operation for at least another 15 years. AAM Surveyors were involved at all stages of the Reline Project for a wide variety of challenging industrial surveying tasks in this hazardous environment.
