Hindmarsh & Washbox win ‘Asia-Pacific Project Controls SUSTAINABILITY Project of the Year’ – sponsored by Prescience Technology

We are delighted to announce that the Margaret Hendry School Expansion (MHSE) project, in partnership with Washbox, has won the ‘Asia-Pacific Project Controls SUSTAINABILITY Project of the Year’ – sponsored by Prescience Technology.

Nadine O’Keeffe, Hindmarsh Project Director said, “We are very proud to be recognised for our approach to environmental build best practice measures at the MHSE, which was delivered for Major Projects Canbera on behalf of the ACT Education Directorate. The partnership with Washbox represents a significant part of our ‘better-than-business-as-usual’ strategy across the Safety, Quality and Environmental (SQE) initiatives we practise at Hindmarsh. Well done to the Hindmarsh Project Team, Washbox, our Delivery Partners, and Suppliers for this amazing outcome.”

Andrew Crimston, Founder and CEO GeoSentinel Washbox added, “This recognition underscores the positive impact that Washbox brings to construction sites contributing not only to project success but also to environmental sustainability. The early adoption of Washbox by Hindmarsh and our ongoing collaboration reflects a shared commitment to innovation and responsible site-based construction practices that are at the coal face of real liquid waste management – we look forward to more transformative projects together. Congratulations to the entire team for this well-deserved accolade!”

Delivered by Hindmarsh, alongside CK Architecture, the MHSE enables the school to accommodate up to 600 additional students, helping support the expanding local community. The expansion includes a new two-level learning community facility, incorporating general learning & specialist learning settings, play area, engaging landscaping, new carparking and bike storage.
