McMahon Services Receives Top Honour on World Demolition Stage

McMahon Services, recently took out the ‘World’s Best Industrial Demolition Project Award’ at the 2016 World Demolition Summit held in the USA over the weekend.

The winners were announced in Miami on 14 October during the eighth World Demolition Summit, the first time the event has been held in the USA.

McMahon Services were awarded for their successful decommissioning of major redundant assets within BHP Billiton Iron Ore, Nelson Point Load Out Facility, in Port Hedland, Western Australia.

The 2016 World Demolition Awards saw 11 companies sharing the honours. McMahon Services overcame fierce competition from around the globe including specialist demolition contractors from the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Italy and Canada to win their category.

The 15-month project for BHP Billiton included high-risk demolition of specialised iron ore bulk handling equipment, including 4km of Conveyor System, seven Transfer Stations, a Dust Collector, two Surge Bins, a Sample Station, two Shiploaders, a Stacker and a Bucket Wheel Reclaimer.

As one of Australia’s leading construction services providers, this global recognition further strengthens McMahon Services’ ability to deliver high-performance projects for clients such as BHP Billiton that operate under some of the most stringent safety, quality and environmental standards in the world.

David McMahon, McMahon Services Managing Director, says “There has been strong demand throughout Australia for the Company’s expertise in these sectors in recent times.”

“We have seen the growth of large industrial demolition projects with the rationalisation of the manufacturing and mining industries, and companies today have policies of rehabilitating sites that are no longer economically viable. We offer a unique turn-key solution, asset value realisation, demolition, remediation, and site rehabilitation which has fuelled our growth in this sector” David said.

Together with brother and co-director Andrew, David McMahon has overseen the growth of McMahon Services from a modest 20 person Adelaide based operation in 1990, to a truly national business employing over 500 staff. Despite the challenges faced in the construction industry over recent times, McMahon Services has never been busier.

David McMahon maintains the impressive growth achieved in recent years can be attributed to ensuring the Company has maintained its cost competitiveness. “We strive to offer clients significant cost benefits over competitors, through smarter approaches, efficient delivery methods and providing people who are focussed on efficiency and delivering value,” says McMahon.

Feature Project

Augusta Power Stations Decommissioning

McMahon Services have been appointed as the Principal Contractor for the two year project involving the decommissioning of the Port Augusta Power Station, following an eight month planning period where we have worked collaboratively with Flinders Power to prepare for the demolition, asset salvage and decommissioning of the Port Augusta Power Station and assets.

This is a unique delivery model for McMahon Services, with an Alliance Leadership Team formed with Flinders Power who share our strong commitment to delivering the project in accordance with our core values of Safety, Teamwork, Leadership and Integrity. The Alliance will see the partnership of both the Owner Party (FPP) and Non-owner party (McMahon Services) to create a single team working unanimously, collaboratively, and cooperatively and acting in good faith to make best-for-project decisions.

Currently the Power Stations are in decommissioning phase, following the last day of power generation on 9th May 2016. Mobilisation to site and the commencement of the two year program will occur in June 2016.

The Augusta Power Stations site closure, dismantling and restoration is a complex project with the involvement of numerous stakeholders. The Alliance commits to early engagement of stakeholders, open collaboration and regular information updates.

The site has a long and proud history and is prominent in the region. The closure program has a high degree of community interest and the Alliance commits to engaging in an open and collaborative fashion.
