NAWIC WA Crystal Vision Award Night

08 March 2012

The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) WA Council hosted its annual Crystal Vision Awards on Friday, 2nd March 2012 in Perth, to showcase the achievements and industry advancements of Western Australian women in construction.

NAWIC is a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to promote and improve the construction industry by the advancement of women within it. SHAPE has had a long involvement with NAIWIC and Hayley McBride from the Perth office is currently the NAIWIC WA President.

SHAPE would like to congratulate Claire Mullen from Laing O’Rourke Australia who received the SHAPE Australia Award for Outstanding Achievement in Construction. This award recognises achievements by a woman who has contributed to construction of a building or a structure in a management or supervisory role. Claire was recently part of a management team that constructed a 200 kilometre rail line from Port Hedland to Shaw Siding on the Newman/Yandi Line in the Pilbara, on time and without any major safety incidents. Claire was instrumental in overseeing modification and design changes to the rail production facility that provided a production rate increase of 1,000% which was a record for the facility.
