Research Institute brings BGC reward

BGC Construction has won the major prize in the 2000 Master Builders’ Excellence in Construction Awards for the $14.2 million TVW Telethon Institute for Child Health Research in Subiaco.

BGC Construction general manager Gerry Forde said it was the first time BGC had won the major MBA award.

“We are very proud of the standard of all our projects, and with the Institute for Child Health Research we had to overcome a number of challenges,” Mr Forde said.

He said the building required complex services, including eight piped gases, specialist fume cupboards and very high security for the basement.

“The construction team also found the elliptical two-level meeting room a challenge in terms of its structure and the alignment of curved Tasman-ian oak cladding,” Mr Forde said.

The Institute, completed in February, was built using cast in-situ pre-stressed concrete, with brick and steel frame infill walls.

BGC also won the category for the best CAMS State Government building in the Perth metropolitan area for the $6.2 million Canning Vale Remand Centre.
