MURWILLUMBAH construction company Civil Team Engineering is busy building an impeccable reputation and recent recognition for a project in Byron Bay shows it is heading in the right direction.

The project involved slope stabilisation and boardwalk reconstruction work of Byron's scenic Lighthouse Road for which the company received high praise from the Institute of Public Works and the NSW Civil Contractors Federation.

Company managing director Tom Rayner said "you might say this job had it all".

"It was a story which just had to be told, a steep sandy slope that the road had to be built upon, the sensitive National Parks land around the site that had to be protected, a low load limit imposed on the slope for stability purposes and the need to maintain a single open lane of traffic on the road for the public while works were being undertaken".

The company received a Highly Commended from the Institute of Public Works as part of the institute's 2012 Engineering Excellence Awards.

They also received a mention as Finalist in Category 2 ($1 million - $5 million projects) at last week's NSW Civil Contractors Federation Earth Awards.

The firm gained the recognition for its construction and environmental excellence and its use of the best technologies and practices as a civil contractor.

Business development and estimating assistant Tracy Armstrong said the company was pleased with the high praise.

"We received major recognition from both organisations and though we didn't actually win, I think it was a major achievement, especially for a small up and coming organisation in such a competitive environment," she said.

Managing director Tom Rayner was the project manager and major contributor to the scheme's success.

Mr Rayner's innovative methodology resulted in the company winning the contract in early 2011 and led to the company winning contracts all over Australia.

The construction phase of the project took nine months and was finished in February this year.

Ms Armstrong said it was the success of projects such as this which allowed the company to grow.

From humble beginnings in 2006, Civil Team Engineering now employs 70 full time staff and operates at several locations all over Australia .
