Prefabrication Resets Construction Standard at Barangaroo (NSW)
Nominated by Lend Lease & A.G. Coombs Group

This innovative approach to prefabricated service risers has the potential to enhance quality, productivity and safety on building sites.  Through prefabrication, Lend Lease and A.G. Coombs transferred more than 4,000 hours of complicated installation at Barangaroo to a controlled factory environment, almost eliminating the need to work at heights.
