THE project manager behind the Joondalup City Centre and the Mandurah Ocean Marina has been awarded with the top individual prize at the Australian Institute of Project Management annual awards.
Benchmark Projects managing director Chris Carman was named project director of the year at a ceremony last week.
Mr Carman has more than 30 years' experience in land development and civil engineering, most notably as the project manager behind the establishment of Joondalup as a regional centre and the award-wining Mandurah Ocean Marina.
The Water Corporation won project of the year for its Kalgoorlie-based balancing reservoir project.
Other finalists were: Pyramid Constructions, for its Murdoch University Institute for Immunology and Infectious Diseases development; the Southern Metropolitan Regional Council for its on-site maintenance improvement project; and Horizon Power for its town reserves regularisation project, which is aimed at achieving the same essential services infrastructure in remote Aboriginal communities as found in neighbouring regional centres.
