Three wins in a row for Logan Water's Cedar Grove Environmental Centre
Innovation, sustainability and excellence have been the constant throughout Logan Water’s different projects, bringing world and Australian first water and environmental solutions and strategies to help provide water to the growing Logan region.
This approach continues to be recognised throughout the industry, with the recently opened Cedar Grove Environmental Centre, located just south of Brisbane, Australia being recognised in the recent months, taking out three different awards.
Most recently, the project received the Australian Water Association’s (AWA) Queensland’s Infrastructure Project Innovation Award (Metro) at their annual Queensland Water Awards event.
The project was recognised by AWA Queensland as a significant and innovative infrastructure project within the water industry, as a project that drives prosperity and sustainability delivering improved outcomes for the community and wider industry.
The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia Queensland (IPWEAQ) also hosted their Excellence Awards for 2020 in November, celebrating excellence in public works across Queensland.
The Cedar Grove Environmental Centre took out the Innovation & Sustainability in Water award, being recognised again for its innovative approaches to wastewater management to ensure it meets the strictest environmental license conditions.
Continuing on from the success of the Sun and Salt – Logan’s Water Quality Solution project at Engineers Australia’s Queensland Engineering Excellence Awards in 2018, Cedar Grove Environmental Centre also took out the Engineering Excellence Award - Queensland at their bi-annual event.
The success of this project is no surprise, thanks to a collaborative team effort from project partners which include Logan Water, Economic Development Queensland, Downer, WSP and Cardno again coming together to develop and deliver innovative and sustainable solutions to provide the growing population of Logan with the water they need.
