Throughout the life of the Sancrox Project, Ferrovial’s site team worked closely with local community and businesses.
With the recent successful completion of the Interchange, the company’s first federally funded project here in Australia, our team wanted to find the right opportunity to give something back and say thank you for the community support. In the interest of minimising waste and maximizing reuse the Ferrovial team consulted with local businesses as to how to best utilise any remaining materials and equipment at the end of the project.
As an important component of this reuse program the Ferrovial team donated water tanks, shelving and cabinets, as well as an ice machine to the very appreciative Sancrox Thrumster Rural Fire Brigade. The shelving was well received and Mr. Allen Ryan from Sancrox Thrumster Rural Fire Brigade said that the “equipment has come in handy, we have used it to lift equipment up off the floor of the station and to store material in a safe manner.”
With a large emphasis on meeting the highest environmental standards for the project, the Ferrovial team had purchased large water tanks to maintain a clean water supply for all the workers and staff. For the Rural Fire Brigade Mr. Ryan has said “We will use the water of the large tank for training purposes when doing training at our station”. Additionally, the ice machine has moved from being an integral part of maintaining welfare on site during hot conditions to the same critical job supporting the dedicated group of volunteers at Sancrox Thrumster.
At Ferrovial, we strive to give back to the community in any way we can"
The reuse of high quality construction materials and furniture is a benefit for the local community and this minimizes our impact on our surroundings".
