Liberty Industrial Projects make Shortlist for World Demolition Awards
Two of Liberty Industrial’s projects have been shortlisted for this year’s World Demolition Awards
3 September 2015 – Liberty Industrial has been named a finalist in two categories of the 2015 World Demolition Awards.
Liberty Industrial’s Omega Tower Demolition and Hammerhead Crane Deconstruction projects have both been shortlisted for the 2015 World Demolition Awards. Both projects were completed by Liberty Industrial for the Department of Defence earlier this year.
The awards are held as part of the annual Word Demolition Summit, the leading annual event for the world’s demolition industry. The summit celebrating excellence and innovation within the demolition industry. Now in its seventh year, the event attracts thousands of demolition and recycling professionals to Amsterdam each year.
Liberty Industrial’s Garden Island Hammerhead Crane Deconstruction project, a high profile dismantling project carried out at Sydney’s Garden Island Navy Base, has been shortlisted as a finalist for Contract of the Year over US$1 million. The project involved the deconstruction of the giant dockside crane and the salvage of its heritage significant components.
Liberty Industrial were also shortlisted in the Explosive Demolition Award category with the demolition of the Omega Transmission Tower, a redundant naval communications tower in Victoria. The tower was the tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere at the time of its demolition and remains the tallest structure demolished in the Southern Hemisphere to date.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Liberty Industrial have had landmark projects shortlisted, with their HIsmelt Closure Project taking out a double win at last year’s awards, winning both the industrial category and the overall world demolition award.
“We are thrilled to see another two Liberty Industrial project shortlisted” said Simon Gill, a Director of Liberty Industrial. “Particularly the Omega Tower Demolition which showcases our expanding explosive demolition capability.”
“These nominations already represent success for us” he said. “The fact that our projects have been shortlisted four years in a row now is reflective of the calibre of the project that we are routinely delivering.”
The Liberty Industrial team are eagerly anticipating the announcement of the winners at the awards gala dinner at the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam on the 6th of November.
