Emu Plains Station Upgrade Wins Award

and the team’s work was considered exemplary by the client.

The Emu Plains Railway Station upgrade by Barnwell Cambridge was declared the Best Commercial Small Project at the 2009 National Electrical and Communications Association Excellence Awards. The awards showcase the best contractors and projects for the past year, from domestic and environmental projects, through OH&S, voice and data, commercial and industrial work. Barnwell Cambridge Pty Ltd was contracted to supply and install electrical services for an easy access upgrade to the heritage listed Emu Plains Railway Station for RailCorp. The upgrade included a new 415v kiosk substation, power supply and controls for new platform lifts, lighting for new platform canopies and cable management systems for CCTV, PA, clocks, TV monitors and communications. Preservation of the heritage building presented a number challenges for Barnwell Cambridge and included the removal of previously surface-mounted power supplies to enhance the building’s appearance. Barnwell Cambridge successfully completed the project to RailCorp’s design brief and standards

Christmas Light Winners Special thanks to competition sponsors The Good Guys: Richard Eastmead, Penrith Panthers and Spyns Inc who generously donated prizes for the competition. First prize:14 Emerald St, Emu Plains (corner block), which demonstrated a great community spirit and connection. Visiting children were welcomed by the residents, with sweets on offer, and lots of fun and laughter could be heard. The home had a train that ran along the front of the yard that

delighted the littlies and a Santa letter box. Santa personally responded to each letter, which was hand delivered into each child’s letter box. The overall light display was great and featured a window display with Christmas tree. Various other displays contained little surprises that delighted families. The family also provided information on a range of community activities and organisation and ran a Lyons club raffle. Second prize: 20 Dewdney St, Emu Heights. Judges were impressed with the uniqueness of the theme, the transformation of the home into one with a ‘churchlike’ facade, complete

with large ‘Madonna’ statues. This home managed to depict the ‘true meaning of Christmas’ whilst combining the joy and fun of additionally decorating the home in bright lights and traditional Christmas decorations. Lots of families were stopping to take photographs. Third prize: 14 Dempsey St, Emu Plains. This home was a standout in the street. It was well lit, lots of fun, and a great representation of what we traditionally see in home Christmas light decorations. The street was busy with lots of families driving by to have a look.

lected over a six week period, each wrapped with the age of the recipient marked. The school foyer looked like Santa’s workshop. Staff from Barnardos at Cranebrook, were overwhelmed by the generosity demonstrated and were delighted to have so many gifts to distribute before Christmas.
