NBN Satellite Dish

AIB professional excellence awards

May 25, 2015

Perkins Builders are delighted to announce its success at the AIB Professional Excellence WA Awards, held at the Pan Pacific on Friday, 17th April 2015.

Grant Bauman, Project Manager for the NBN Satellite Earth Stations, was awarded a Certificate of Excellence, the only one awarded in the Infrastructure category.

These awards are based not on what was built but how it was built. It reflects the professionalism and initiative shown by the recipient in overcoming problems and challenges.

Four remote satellite earth stations were built by Perkins Builders which will help deliver reliable, high speed broadband across Australia. Each site was built to a standard template design with the variable being the site specific conditions. The buildings themselves are single storey and are modest and unobtrusive in appearance, however the site compounds have a significant amount of services that are essential and critical to allow the operation of the NBN Broadband services via fibre optic and satellite transmission.

In addition to the construction the stations and readying them for the installations of the satellites, Perkins Builders also undertook the civil works including all the road works, drainage, power supply services and preparing of the site for construction of the structures.

Perkins Builders are very proud of this achievement and would like to thank Grant and his dedicated team for all their hard work on this unique project and are pleased to have been involved in the biggest infrastructure project ever seen in Australia.
