Canterbury Town Centre project takes home the big one

Congratulations to the Diona team who worked on the Canterbury Town Centre project for Sydney Water, who took home the Award for Project Value $5m to $10m at the National Civil Contractors Federation Earth Awards.

This is now the third award the project has secured after winning the CCF NSW Category 3 – Project Value $5 million to $10 million Award and Overall SafeWork NSW Work Health and Safety Project of Distinction Award earlier this year. 

Project Overview

Diona were engaged directly by Sydney Water to carry out the amplification and upgrade of the pump station in Hurlstone Park along with the design and construction of new pressure and gravity mains.

The amplification and upgrade of Sydney Water Pump Station SP0082, included a full mechanical and electrical fit out. The pump station has been fitted out with two new 90Kw submersible pumps along with a complete replacement of pipework, valves, instrumentation and electrical switch-boards. 

The upgrade works have also included bringing the pump station to a standard where it now meets all the current standards and specifications. A new permanent backup generator has also been installed as part of the works. These works will lead to an improved and more efficient utilities system with lower chances of an environmental impact in what is one of Sydney’s most important Bio-diversity corridors.
