MPA takes home two

At this year’s Master Builders Association (MBA) Excellence in Construction Awards, MPA took away two awards for work on Havas and Canterbury League Club’s projects. Held at The Star Event Centre, the MPA team and clients celebrated a fantastic evening with the very best in commercial construction. Our Canterbury League Club project took home the Hospitality Building – Refurbishment ($10,000,001 - $30,000,000) award. The revamped gaming floor contains a new cocktail bar, VIP high rollers area, alfresco gaming space, back of house staff area, new indoor gaming space and new six-level lift. The finished space incorporates features including a custom joinery dome ceiling with crystal balls, standalone circular floor, cocktail bar fully wrapped in stone with a timber slat symmetrical ceiling and a timber ceiling over the alfresco gaming area. The VIP ‘high rollers’ area was a keyspace of the project, incorporating an infinity entry wall wrapped in handmade tiles, custom water feature with copper and timber structure with integrated waterspouts and the amenities which have a full-height stone wall. Additionally, MPA was awarded the Restoration/Adaptive Re-use of a Historic Building ($5,000,001 - $10,000,000) for our work on Havas’ heritage fitout. The multi-floor heritage building, previously a Bushell Tea factory, allowed Havas to bring all their agencies together under one roof. The unique space reflects Havas’ brand and culture. The exposed ceiling and timber features reveal the historic fabric and function of the building, with the space consisting of open plan workstations, collaborative areas, and meeting rooms. Havas embraced the heritage characteristics of the building by including the tea extractors and slides, resulting in a creative and open workspace. It was an honour to be recognised by the MBA for our achievements and the dedication that went into transforming these spaces. We would like to thank our clients, consultant teams and subcontractors who worked alongside us on these projects, and congratulations to all the remarkable winning projects at this year’s awards.

Interview; Diana Jones 2019 NAWIC NSW Award winner

MPA sponsored the award for ‘Achievement in construction – refurbishment and fitout’ at the NAWIC NSW 2019 Awards for Excellence. Winner of the award, Diana Jones spoke with MPA’s Marketing & Client Relations Director and NAWIC President Once Removed, Sarah Hogan, to discuss her views on NAWIC and some insight into the future of the industry. What do you remember about the early part of your career in the industry? I was studying nights, part time at Ultimo TAFE and I was the only female in the class. My teacher seemed determined to see me fail, however my resilience was built up by my classmates, as they saw the unfair treatment and helped me through. There are lots of great people in the industry – females and males - and I aspire to be one of them. How well do you think the NAWIC Awards is recognised in the industry? I almost never need to explain what NAWIC is because the industry is so familiar with the awards and what NAWIC is doing. In the construction industry, the NAWIC NSW Awards for Excellence is the most renowned networking event of the year. There is a diversity of attendees across so many industry organisations. It’s not just about who pays the most for sponsorship, it’s all about empowering women in the industry, which is so important. It gives everyone who deserves an award a real chance at winning on their own merit. Would you recommend your career path to young females interested in joining the industry? And how can we attract more women to join? Absolutely. Women are naturally suited to project management as we tend to be creative, organised and as the saying goes, great multitaskers. Empathy and building relationships are inherently embodied in females. These are skills that are extremely beneficial to project management. I didn’t even know roles like mine existed when I was at school. I think we should be advocating career paths in the construction industry to young girls in school. I’m sure most would never consider it as an option unless we do a better job telling them about what’s out there. It’s important to remember we are always progressing. In 2019, the field is more inclusive, and I know I wouldn’t be the only female in the class now. That’s already a significant change. How do you envision the construction industry in 10+ years’ time? I never could have imagined how the construction is today, so it’s hard to say what it will be like in 10 years. However, with the ever-changing landscape things will have to change, whether that is the materials we’re using, how we are building, what we are building or just the industry’s culture. I also believe technology will play a big part in it, and we have to make sure our industry keeps up by pushing the envelope, incorporating new technology in the way we work. While we will continue to think big and the industry will survive and adapt - regardless of all the changes.
