JULY 2017
From the Director's Desk
Joe Wagner Group has continued to build on its busy start to the year with several projects recently completed and new projects kicking off. JWG has completed stage 1 of Baillie Henderson Hospital entrance upgrades, bulk earthworks at Infinite Aged Care Facility in Stuart Street, construction of hardstand and storage facilities for Queensland Rail at Murphy’s Creek as well as various plant and labor hire projects continuing for our long-term customers.

Our whole team has been putting in a great effort for first half of this year, many of the team regularly working weekends, after hours and away from home to ensure that JWG projects and most importantly our customers projects are meeting tight deadlines and being delivered efficiently. Thank you to the entire team for your dedication, hard work and commitment to our customers.

Planning & Experience Help JWG Through Tough Conditions
Dave and his team has completed stage 1 of the Baillie Henderson Hospital Mort Street access upgrade. These works were required to re-align the access road with the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing Mort Street upgrade. Works included; excavation of existing road, pavement construction, kerb and channel works. Rainfall from ex-tropical Cyclone Debbie posed significant threat to the site during construction, JWG quickly implemented control measures and maintained them throughout the heavy rainfall. The team’s commitment to the project during wet weather ensured that the project was handed over to our client on time and under budget- Well done team!

The project included 7000m3 of cut to fill, 8500 m3 of material to be removed from site, detailed excavation and pier holes for a 4-meter retaining wall and detailed excavation of a 5-meter basement.
A great effort from Wayne and his team to deliver this project efficiently to reduce the impact of construction works on the local community.

JWG Welcomes New Additions to the Fleet
We have upgraded our fleet with the addition of a pick-up broom attachment for our fleet of skid steers and posi tracks; the pick-up broom is the perfect attachment or cleaning up dirt and debris from concrete and roads around the job site.

JWG has also taken delivery of a brand-new Case CX250C from Earthmoving Equipment Australia. This is JWG’s second CX250C; the machine has been put straight to work at Surat for one of our key customers. The 25t excavator is equipped with a tilting quick hitch, GPS machine control and compatible with JWG’s comprehensive range of attachments.

These new additions to the fleet will assist JWG in providing sustainable construction solutions for customers well into the future

Looking Out for Our Team & Our Customers

Joe Wagner Group teamed up with Mates in Construction (MIC) to host a Suicide and Depression awareness BBQ on site for one of our valued customers. MIC is a not for profit organisation developed to raise awareness and educate the building and construction industry of the role that everyone in the industry must play in reducing Suicide. The program is based on the simple idea that “suicide is everyone’s business”; it’s not just about raising awareness but also providing training and mentoring in supporting your co-workers.

Special thanks to Warrick Bidwell from MIC for giving up his time to talk about his experience and how important it is to look out for you mates or to speak up if you need help. JWG will be hosting several MIC awareness BBQs and tool box talks to support our staff and customers. 

Did You Know?
The Venice Tide Barrier Project will be the largest flood prevention project in the world
Venice is slowly sinking, and the water around it slowly rising which makes flooding an endless fear for residents. Italians have known for a long time that something needs to be done but just what could they do to protect this historical city-on-the-water for future generations from such a significant natural phenomenon?

The answer - Build several inflatable wall structures on the canal inlets that can withstand significant tidal influx and reduce the threat of flooding to low lying areas. The project is now in its second phase of construction which includes; construction of 23,000t concrete foundations and lowering them into the lagoon,  installation of 80 inflatable hinged barriers- each approximately 6,500 square feet and a challenging testing phase.
