Scheme accredited company, Built, have been awarded the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner National Excellence in Workplace Health and Safety Award by Federal Safety Commissioner, Alan Edwards. The award was for the Built’s Rialto Regeneration project in Melbourne. Whilst preserving the working experience of 8,000 current building occupants, the $74 million project involved the new construction of 5,000m² of commercial office space, complex refurbishment of the existing structure and lobby space, and high end office fitout works.
 
The Rialto Regeneration project presented a series of complex challenges that were met through the identification and control of hazards and a safety plan that was complemented by subcontractor safety and compliance documents that ensured alignment of safety practices. 
 
The practices in place on the Rialto Regeneration project are typical of the excellent safety practices demonstrated by Built more broadly. Built was recently reaccredited by the Federal Safety Commissioner for the maximum period of six years, in recognition of their ongoing, strong compliance with the accreditation scheme criteria.
