This project extended the existing building west over the disused seaplane port, the extension includes a new patron dining area and expanded kitchen
facilities, increasing space and comfort for both patrons and staff. This project posed a myriad of environmental, safety and management challenges. The goal to construct a building over water in a zone with constant flow of pedestrian traffic along the adjoining walkway in front of one of Newcastle busiest roads and maintain a fully functioning restaurant at the same time.
PDA Building took this challenge with our WH&S system as the backbone, all Sub-Contractors are screened for their ability and safe work practices, SWMS are reviews ensuring they meet the current standards. All Sub-contractors are inducted and trained to work in this environment, safety as per all PDA Building projects was paramount, protection of the public and high traffic movement managed to allow work to progress safety. With the successful completion of this project PDA Building received the excellence in construction 2017 OH&S award presented by Work Cover Australia to achieve this award members of our team where interviewed by two Work Cover inspectors showing evidence of good work practices.
