Making things happen for our customers

Our focus is always on adding value for our clients and this was well demonstrated with our recent work on the Commercial Drive, Pakenham Project for Campbell Construction, as part of the South East Business Park development. In four days we were able to move from drawings approval to compliance, including construction, detailing and auditing. This was despite construction issues requiring design revisions, squeezing the already tight timeframe.

Our well-established relationship with the distribution network meant we could reach agreement on a fast-tracked auditing process to be undertaken the day of construction, and a very happy client able to obtain compliance by the required due date.

This achievement was made possible through a combination of our highly skilled, experienced team, the commitment we have to our customers and an open dialog with distribution networks.

Safer by Design

Safety is not just a work matter – we live it 24/7. It applies to all aspects of our lives and at Powerplant we are committed to ensuring that we can all enjoy our life to the fullest, free from injury.

This financial year we are building on the new safety program we established last year, with further initiatives aimed at improving our safety systems, performance and culture. Our Safety Index, (which measures a range of lead and lag safety KPIs), employee and customer feedback all indicate that we are well on the way to achieving our 2022 Strategic Safety Objective ‘to be respected within the industry for our leadership and commitment to improving safety’.

Our Safer by Design branding is designed as a visual message connecting our people and customers to our safety program. It reminds us that our safety, and the safety of our colleagues and loved ones is our highest priority in everything we do, both at work and away from work.

What does it mean?

  • Our safety doesn’t happen by chance – we plan to be safe
  • We are proactive in our approach to safety – we actively seek out and consider risks
  • We apply innovative safety thinking in our design and project management of work for our customers

We encourage all our team members to be safety leaders, and to have the courage to respectfully call out unsafe practices or behaviours. We look forward to supporting you in delivering your projects safely.
