IAGI Installation (I2) Awards
DDTLA has recently been awarded the IAGI Award of Excellence 2014. The International Association of Geosynthetic Installers (IAGI) is the professional association representing geosynthetic material installers and their industry partners. IAGI strives to provide a forum for geosynthetics installers to advance installation and construction techniques, and to strengthen the knowledge, image and communication within the industry. Every year they run the Installation (I2) Awards which are judged by a panel of industry experts and are designed to recognise significant contributions to the field of geosynthetic installation.
DDTLA won the award for our work on the AP LNG project at Reedy Creek. We submitted it for consideration in the ‘Extreme Project’ category which is for projects where execution required creativity in installation, fabrication or methodology. Following our success in this category our total points were compared with winners across the other fields and, having the highest overall score, we were named the 2015 winner of the Award of Excellence.
All of the staff who worked on the project should be congratulated following this success, as the reason we won is due to outstanding work in the field. The project allowed us to grow and reach new standards of quality, efficiency and safety at an organisational level and in our practical management, making it a landmark project for our history. It was a massive undertaking for DDTLA and was the catalyst for us to move into larger contracts and installation at a much larger scale.
