The annual state Master Electrician Excellence Awards were held on Friday the 11th of August at the Duxton Hotel. ComSpark had two nominations, Kimberley Madden-Marshall for Women in Contracting and Chris Duncan and his team for Data Project of the Year.
According the Malcolm Richards, Master Electrician’s CEO, “the awards are a great way to recognise and highlight the incredible talents within the state. This year’s awards have demonstrated the outstanding level of achievement within the electro-technology sector in WA.”
ComSpark is very proud to have been awarded two of the the six award on offer!
Chris Duncan and his team won the Data Project of the Year award for Stirling Cross Mixed Use Development. As a design and construction job, ComSpark designed a communication system for data and telecommunications that would satisfy the specification of the project in a cost effective manner. The project used over 30,000 metre of Cat 6A cabling and 1170 Cat 6A data outlets, as well as fibre links for NBN delivery. ComSpark would like to thank and acknowledge the Stirling Cross Mixed Use Development team; Chris Duncan, Maghdie Enous, Damien Hawkins, Shane Vertudaches, Ethan Wallace and Stephanie Hall as the hands on team and the office team who ensured smooth documentation and invoicing process. In the last 6 weeks of the project, Chris Duncan was on paternity leave, Kimberley Madden-Marshall took over the project in Chris’ absence…right at the pointy end as completion date neared. ComSpark were one of the first trades to complete their scope of work and were off site almost two months before completion date.
Kimberley was awarded the Master Electricians Women in Contracting Excellence award. This is Kimberley’s third nomination for the Excellence Award and her third win. According to MEA’s CEO Malcolm Richards, Kimberley Madden-Marshall was named Women in Contracting award winner for displaying outstanding leadership, managing the business through significant change and her project management on the Stirling Cross Mixed Use Development. Kimberley had two other worthy nomination and according to Kimberley, “It was great to see such a strong field of women competing for this award, I was sincerely surprised to win this year”.
Kimberley and Chris are heading to Brisbane in November to hopefully bring home the national awards.
