Brazier Motti Director Raneir Melick joined Herbert Member of Parliament Philip Thompson and a class of Thuringowa State High School students to celebrate CSIRO National STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) Day in October.

This initiative brings together students, politicians, and industry representatives from across Australia together to celebrate the STEM fields and the career opportunities available to students.

BM is always keen to encourage the next generation of planners and surveyors in Northern Australia, so Raneir was pleased to be able to showcase the STEM work and opportunities in our team.

BM Team, Community, Survey

In September, the BM team celebrated the 39-year career of Graham Ward, who joined us in 1980 as a Graduate Surveyor and leaves us to embark on a well-earned retirement. As a local business, it’s a real privilege to have someone choose to spend their entire career with our team and we’ve been fortunate to have Graham stay with our business for such a long time.

Across his career with BM, Graham applied his craft to the north in all environments. He was instrumental in pioneering survey work associated with the location of the Great Barrier Reef Floating Hotel and took the lead in many other signature projects including the Imax and Reef Wonderland development, Nelly Bay harbour, and many residential estates and unit developments across the City.

His contribution to defining and shaping BM has been significant. His leadership and contribution to the industry and survey profession is also unquestioned, quite rightly inducted as a SSSI Fellow 2017.

By the numbers, we estimate Graham has been responsible for at least:
– 9,200 work days
– Over 8,200 discrete job instructions

Graham has made a huge contribution to helping BM become the business it is today – a true expert, highly professional, resolutely fair, greatly committed, a giver of knowledge.

Congratulations on a fantastic career, Graham! We’re proud to have been a part of it and thankful for your significant contribution to our team!

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.
