No job is easy when it comes to
working with a community and disrupting their routine. When Diona was
contracted to construct a concrete culvert and road approaches at Goorangoola
Road, Greenlands, it was a different story.
The community was hesitant when the project was initially
proposed. However, our team, including Tommy Kelly, Dermot Culleton, David Moore, Mark
Carroll, Anthony Crane and Des Leyden worked tirelessly to deliver a top-notch
project. Their hard work and dedication meant the project received amazing
feedback from both the client and the community.
Though this was a remote project with limited communications,
Diona's team strove to develop and maintain good relationships with local
property owners and the client. This ensured smooth running of the project,
while exceeding all stakeholder expectations.
Our team worked hard to explain the project and its impact
to the community, ultimately convincing them of the positive outcome. They have
been a great ambassador for the Singleton Council, despite them facing many
issues like flooding, trees and more.
The client noted that Diona had an interesting, successful
operations culture, adding "They have made an enormous difference to our
operations at Greenlands for the future, by pitching in to repair the end of
our previously washed away homestead causeway".
With various traffic management, environmental management and
rehabilitation works to be considered, this was a challenging project, which
has resulted in a very fulfilling outcome for all the parties involved.
The client further added that "the final elevated causeway
solution, to me, is both a great and aesthetic piece of engineering for us
