Raneir with Cootharinga North Queensland General Manager David Reeson

BM Director Raneir Melick hosted his final event as Chair of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Townsville chapter in November.

The end of year dinner focussed on governance in the sports arena and collected present donations to support the great therapy work undertaken by Cootharinga North Queensland.

Townsville’s AICD chapter has a big following – almost 300 members – and provides important information, professional development opportunities, and hosts events throughout the year for directors, business leaders and members of the broader community.

Raneir is stepping down from his AICD Townsville role after serving the maximum allowable nine years on the Committee, including as Chair since 2016. Congratulations Raneir on a great event, a fantastic outcome for the community, and great service to the AICD organisation!

In November, we were pleased to take part in Townsville Enterprise’s “STEAM in the Regions” forum, an initiative to bring together industry, educators and researchers to help plan the future of North Queensland’s workforce.

We’re passionate about inspiring young people into the STEAM fields and showcasing the exciting career opportunities in our industry. Our Senior Registered Surveyor Stephen Jess took part in a panel discussion on partnerships between industry and schools. Stephen volunteers with the CSIRO’s STEM Professionals in Schools programme, working with teachers and Townsville primary school students to inspire a passion for STEM and consider a STEM-related career.

Congratulations to Townsville Enterprise on this fantastic initiative!

Life Education Townsville launched their new van in Townsville in November, a project we were proud to support.

Life Education visits schools across North Queensland, using their van and mascot Healthy Harold to teach primary school students about health, wellbeing and safety. Our team worked with Life Education to take their ideas for the pod on the new vehicle and turn them into CAD drawings for the builders.

We were pleased to be able to play our part in helping Life Education continue their great work with the next generation of Townsville kids.

North Queensland Stadium

For the past two years the North Queensland Stadium has slowly been taking shape. If not one of the largest construction projects undertaken in North Queensland recently, it has certainly had the attention of a football mad North Queensland public.

Brazier Motti has been engaged as the project surveyor since the Managing Contractor, Watpac, took control of the site back in mid 2017.

The early works consisted of a comprehensive Dilapidation Survey of the entire site and adjoining properties and infrastructure. That phase of the work included a comprehensive condition assessment including tracing and video of the existing stormwater network, as well as both ground and drone based site condition documentation.

Our onsite staff have been integral to the construction process and have completed the necessary survey for all facets of the work from initial site fill and compaction, through to set-out and as-constructed survey for the significant and complex steel and concrete work. It has been a rewarding project in that it has drawn on a large range of expertise with in the company.

In the early stages we were undertaking intermittent scanning of the as-constructed locations of cast-in dowels to confirm panel design. More recently we have been called upon to scan sections of stands to allow accurate design and prefabrication of screen attachment fittings.

In the last few weeks the first of the thirty-six roof trusses have appeared on the Townsville skyline. Having undertaken initial survey to assist with fabrication of the trusses, our surveyors are still onsite dealing with the complex geometry for the accurate standing and positioning of the trusses.

Brazier Motti has been pleased to have been associated with this land mark project that will leave its legacy on the North Queensland community for many years to come.
