A glowing commendation came from Mackay Regional Council’s Chief Operating Officer, Nicole Davis, congratulating Interflow on the exceptional work carried out on a recent project. Nicole received encouraging feedback from the community and fellow council staff. Our trenchless technology solutions have saved significant costs for the client, while causing minimal disruption to the area.
Well done to Russell Nielsen and his team for ensuring our community relations remain at the forefront of our business.
Our Regional HSE Managers from NSW, Jim Craigie and Chris Isaac presented the second stage of Interflow’s H2O training to the team in the Central Coast. The crews were excited to see how we are making their jobs safer and easier and left the training with a renewed focus on working to keep ourselves safe.
The Southern Carrier Team is doing some extraordinary work on the Maribyrnong project. Nestled deep within Melbourne’s steepest incline suburbs, the team has successfully lined 1m diameter sewers of over 120m in length and 40m deep. The next step involves further relining of the sewer. To avoid sending men through this unlined section, SPR Rotaloc will be used using remote entry. This is another example of an innovative approach to ensure a safe environment for our workers and the surrounding community.
Sydney Water has awarded our Project Engineer, Matt Cremona, with the High Performer Award! Matt has achieved outstanding results in the Critical Watermain space within the North Region and has demonstrated exceptional capabilities with project requirements, time management and team engagement. This is a huge honour and Matt’s achievements help build our vision of Honesty, Reliability and Competence.
At Interflow, we invest in helping our people grow on a personal and professional level. Supporting this vision, our team in WA team attended several personal development programs which have helped build their skills in negotiation, confidence, leadership and project planning.
Not only does this further empower people as individuals, it helps generate business growth through continued upskilling, making our people experts in their field.
Icon Water’s Managing Director, Mr. Ray Hezkial, and his Executive Management Team visited the site at Cook, ACT, where we were renewing reticulation sewers as part of our five-year contract. During this visit, Mr. Hezkial gained first-hand insights into the quality of our project delivery.
A special thank you to Jim Craigie, Darren Malley and Adam Pulbrook for maintaining the company’s top-quality standard of service.
Our crew in New Zealand has completed the unimaginable as a result of the introduction of the company’s 55 NCL Profile. Located in the heart of Auckland, New Zealand, the team successfully completed the renewal of 2 x 300mm stormwater pipelines with our new 55NCL Profile Liner, 120m and 150m. The pipelines had frequent 11-degree bends and would have required extensive excavation without this new product. The successful renewal of the pipelines is a prime example of our ability to challenge ourselves, whilst providing greater value to clients and the community with minimal disruption.
Our team’s Lining Crew whilst working in Tasmania recently completed 300mm lines in a single day. Our General Manager – Southern Region, Robert McEwen has expressed his gratitude with this poem.
“From the cold and misty valleys of Tasmania.
To the barren and hot desert of Broken Hill.
The diversity and skills of our SA Crews remain strong and steady.
Never a complaint, dedicated focus and always reliable.
A role model of persistence and resilience.
Our gratitude and thanks to the men who love Floating Pies, Stobie Poles and a Butcher on a hot day.”
This team’s lining crew recently completed four 300mm lines in a day.
