Tweed Daily News - - NEWS - Ais­ling Bren­nan ais­ling.bren­nan@tweed­dai­lynews.com.au

AS WORKS con­tinue on the Kingscliff Fore­shore Re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion project, the com­pany be­hind the con­struc­tion, SEE Civil, re­mains an in­te­gral part of many con­struc­tion projects across the shire.

With 29 years in busi­ness, SEE Civil has been nom­i­nated for a 2017 Safework NSW an­nual work­place health and safety award.

We chat with SEE Civil about the com­pany’s achieve­ments:

What do you most en­joy about op­er­at­ing your own busi­ness?

It is in­cred­i­bly re­ward­ing to see all our ac­com­plish­ments over the years, grow­ing the busi­ness from six em­ploy­ees to 250 em­ploy­ees who are all a part of the SEE Civil fam­ily.

We are proud to have worked on lo­cal projects such as Kirk­wood Rd and Kingscliff Fore­shore Re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion for Tweed Shire Coun­cil and are hope­ful we can work col­lab­o­ra­tively with the coun­cil on fu­ture projects.

Other projects in­clude Al­ti­tude As­pire in Ter­ra­nora, Hun­dred Hills Stage 13A in Mur­willum­bah, Riva Vue Stage 5 in Mur­willum­bah, The Dunes in Kingscliff.

What’s the big­gest ad­van­tage to op­er­at­ing a busi­ness in Tweed?

One of our most im­por­tant as­sets are our peo­ple, and the main ben­e­fit of op­er­at­ing within the Tweed re­gion is that we are able to em­ploy peo­ple from the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

We con­tinue to build a strong af­fil­i­a­tion with the com­mu­nity by en­gag­ing lo­cal busi­nesses and sup­port­ing com­mu­ni­ty­based sports clubs.

What does it mean to your busi­ness to be nom­i­nated for this award?

Be­ing nom­i­nated for the 2017 Safework Awards’ Best So­lu­tion to an Iden­ti­fied Work­place Health and Safety Is­sue is a great hon­our and re­in­forces our safety val­ues.

Safety is cen­tral to all we do and this as­sists us in pro­mot­ing to our peo­ple, our clients and the com­mu­nity that we pro­mote the high­est level of safety for our peo­ple, sub­con­trac­tors, en­vi­ron­ment and com­mu­nity.
