The project involved both building and civil works to construct a waste water treatment plant for the Leeton juice factory of National Foods. Joss also managed the Process Mechanical installation.
Works consisted of a 1000 m2 concrete bunded area with a combination of concrete and lined steel tanks and a new 150 m2 shed to house the process mechanical equipment in addition to all civil, inground hydraulic and electrical works.
The site was only 2000 m2 and the design utilised every available space, so the method and program were critical in delivering the project on time & below budget.

The Commercial Development at Morgan Street involved construction of a new four storey office and retail complex including 140 space car park, retaining walls and landscaping. The scope of works consisted of demolition of a collection of existing industrial buildings and relocation of existing sewer main.
The project was staged with a view of facilitating the client’s request to construct the external works as late as possible in the program. The details of the windows and external aluminium cladding required incredibly tight construction tolerances to be maintained. Both windows and cladding carried long lead times and were manufactured to pre-determined sizes from different companies. Internally, the quality of new suspended grid system ceilings, wet area tiling and office fit-out are befitting of the clients’ desire to create a first class office environment.
This project was the recipient of the Master Builders Regional Building NSW 2016 Excellence Award for Best Commercial Project over $10M.
