BroadQuality awareness week was held across the company between 20 and 24 August 2012. This year’s message ‘Delivering Competitive Advantage’ was communicated across all Broad offices and sites nationally, to reinforce the importance of quality and making it part of our everyday working life.

As I reflect on the last 12 months, it has certainly been an eventful year for Broad. I would like to take this opportunity to offer my personal thanks to all our clients, staff and subcontractors for their ongoing support.

As part of Work Safe Australia Week, Broad held their fifth annual BroadSafe Day on Wednesday, 24 October 2012 addressing the importance of our behaviours and how they contribute to achieving zero harm in the workplace. Safety is our number one priority across the company and we will persistently continue our commitment to improvement and to create and sustain an industry where no one is harmed. Thank you to all that participated in BroadQuality Week and BroadSafe Day. I hope you took away a very important safety and quality message.

Mount Sheridan Plaza Broad Queensland recently completed the transformation of the Mount Sheridan Plaza situated near Cairns in Northern Queensland. The expansion to Mount Sheridan Plaza provides a high level of retail to the Southern growth areas of Cairns, which have until this time been underserviced, providing a significant subregional retail shopping destination for the community. The expansion of 14,500 sqm has taken the completed centre to 21,000 sqm with a total of 1,100 car parks. The centre now includes Kmart, Woolworths, Reject Shop, and a new 300 seat food court and a further 40 specialty stores, all complimenting the existing Coles supermarket and 22 stores. Despite inclement weather conditions and other varying challenges, the Mount Sheridan project team were focused throughout and have completed the project to high safety and quality standards, on time and within budget, delivering the best possible outcome for the client. Broad commenced the project late 2010 and achieved practical completion early September 2012. The grand opening of the Plaza took place on 6 September 2012 and drew a crowd of over 13,000 people.

The upgrade included demolition of the existing road and footpath, installation of new drainage, including downpipe connection to the shop fronts, new road construction to a modified profile, new multi-function poles, and installation of new trees, brick paving and street furniture. The works have created a shared space for pedestrians and cars and improves the ambience for alfresco diners and shoppers. On Friday, 26 October 2012, Town of Claremont hosted the ‘Bay View Terrace Festival’ with an official opening and welcome conducted by Western Australian Premier, Hon Colin Barnett. The night included a pop up food market, street entertainment, temporary street art and of course Claremont’s renowned shopping and dining precinct.

Brightwater State School Opening Minister for Education, Training and Employment John-Paul Langbroek officially opened the Brightwater State School on the Sunshine Coast on Friday, 31 August 2012. Situated next to the Mooloolah River, Brightwater State School consisted of ten main buildings, three covered areas, two play structures and an oval. The school was completed earlier than anticipated with stage 1a handed over early to allow the Department of Education, Training and Employment to complete fit out of client equipment. The school proved to be a successful and smooth running build due to the previous knowledge gained by the team on the design and construction of six primary schools and one secondary school as part of the Private Public Partnership with the Queensland Government known as the Aspire Schools consortium. “Brightwater State School is an inspiring place to learn and a major asset for the local community,” Mr Langbroek said. “Under the Public Private Partnership arrangement, Aspire Schools Consortium will provide ongoing facilities maintenance until December 2039. This is an outstanding example of schools and communities working together to provide quality educational facilities for Queensland students,” he said. The school is sustainable by design and construction and is registered for a 4 Star Green Star rating with the Green Building Council of Australia. To accommodate more primary school students from the local area, stage two of Brightwater will commence mid 2013 with a final delivery date of 2014.

BroadSafe Day At Broad we are committed to enforcing a heightened level of safety across the business. To coincide with Safe Work Australia Week (21-27 October), Broad held their fifth annual BroadSafe Day on Wednesday, 24 October 2012 to address the importance of behaviour and how it contributes to achieving our goal of zero harm in the workplace. To assist with this goal, Broad developed a set of safety behaviours that clearly set how everyone will and will not behave on our sites and offices. The behaviours set non negotiable expectations of how we must all conduct ourselves and are specifically targeted to three groups; Everyone, Site Managers/Supervisors and Senior Management. BroadSafe Day introduced the HSE Behaviours to subcontractors and staff, focusing on how ‘Your behaviour makes a difference’. The behaviours hold people accountable for their actions at all levels and will have a profound impact on our journey to zero harm. On the day, each site acknowledged subcontractors in recognition of outstanding safety behaviours displayed on a Broad project. Broad personnel were also recognised on the day for living Broad’s safety value ‘Safety and Well-being’ and displaying outstanding behaviours. Recipients of the BroadSafe Day awards were presented with a framed certificate and $100 Visa gift voucher. Thank you to our clients, staff and subcontractors for attending and taking part in the day’s activities

Students eagerly participating in the Community Safety Awareness presentation.

Students showing their classmates safety signs they must adhere to.

Community Safety Awareness - Milingimbi School On Friday, 31 August 2012 New Future Alliance (NFA) Safety Manager, Phil Bevan, presented two Community Safety Awareness presentations to over 100 students from Milingimbi School. The purpose of the presentation was to educate students about the importance of road safety when heavy vehicle trucks travelled on the Island’s roads.

Broadview _ issue 20

The teachers and families from the community were delighted that NFA offered to deliver such a thorough and engaging program. After the presentation, teachers recapped with the students to see how much they had learnt and they were really surprised with the results. The children communicated what they had learnt through drawings of star pickets with yellow caps and big trucks on the road with children standing clear of the vehicles. The teachers and families were delighted with the retention of the safety messages and how quickly the new found knowledge has spread to everyone in their community


NFA Community Day - Ngukurr Throughout the Package 10 works in Ngukurr, New Future Alliance (NFA) employees and contractors held various fundraising activities to raise money for the purchase of funeral lowering equipment for the community. On Wednesday, 12 September 2012 New Future Alliance, on behalf of employees and subcontractors, organised a special barbeque function to present the funeral lowering equipment to the community. Board Member for the Yugul Mangi Corporation and a Representative of the Northern Land Council (NLC), Bobby Nunggumajbarr accepted the gift on the community’s behalf. He spoke of the great work he had witnessed and that the team will always be welcomed back. Speeches were also made by NFA Safety Manager, Phil Bevan and NFA Package Manager, John Williams. During a demonstration of how the equipment worked, there was an overwhelming amount of emotion and gratitude shown from the community members and Traditional Owners. The function was a great success and the community members were very appreciative of the fundraising efforts made to assist in the purchase of the equipment. The gift has left a lasting legacy and one that will greatly assist the community for years to come. This is a great achievement by the Package 10 team

I felt safe riding with the experienced guys who really protected the whole team”, said Leighton Contractors Executive General Manager, Mike Metcalfe.
