Specialist project management firm MoveCorp has won two project management accolades at the 2012 National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Awards for Excellence.
Susanna Wolmeke-Craven (pictured left) took home the Contribution to a Project’s Development award for her role in a range of defence and Government projects and MoveCorp was announced as the winner of the Team Innovation award for its role in the Moorebank Unit Relocation project.
The Contribution to a Project’s Development award acknowledges an individual who has played a key role in the development of a project that has achieved a major milestone. The Team Innovation award recognises a team’s contribution to a successful development and the innovative work practices applied.
“This is an outstanding achievement for MoveCorp and symbolises the future direction of the business and its ongoing support of women’s leadership within the industry,” said Wolmeke-Craven, who is the firm’s Storage Logistics design manager.
MoveCorp provides storage and logistics services across multiple defence projects and works in close collaboration with architects and managing contractors to deliver a specialised solution.
The team’s role in the Moorebank Unit Relocation involves the decanting of military units in the Liverpool Military Area to make way for the NSW State Government’s new freight facility. The Moorebank Units Relocation project provided the opportunity to deliver both of MoveCorp’s niche services to the client: design of cost and space efficient facilities and relocation strategy development.
“We have worked hard on a range of complex, large-scale commercial and government projects over the years and it’s great to be recognised for our achievements from within the industry. I thank the core team who have contributed to this significant project: Karina Silveira, Richard Pym, Hayley Greenwood and Susanna Wolmeke-Craven,” said Amelia Curic, MoveCorp managing director.
“NAWIC provides a much-needed platform to not only educate women but to actively engage and encourage them to consider pursuing careers in the sector,” she added.
