Another win for the Johnstons Creek Naturalisation project taking home the National Stormwater Australia Award, in the category of ‘Excellence in Asset Management’. The award recognised the integration of multiple specialities working together including stakeholder and community engagement, civil and hydraulic engineering, ecological design and landscape architecture to deliver a community-based asset.

Sydney Water Project Manager, Jordan Mulhearn praised Diona’s efforts, stating “a big thanks to our delivery contractor Diona who worked on ground for almost two years and did a fantastic job delivering a difficult project in challenging circumstances. We clocked over 100,000 work hours on site and had over 130 workers over the life of the project.”

This marks the fourth award the project has achieved to date, demonstrating the high standard of work we can deliver with stormwater naturalisation projects. Congratulations to the Sydney Water, Diona and Thompson Berrill Landscape Design teams on another big win.
