Ward has played an important role in developing many of NSW’s iconic landmarks, including the Sydney Harbour Tunnel, Parramatta Light Rail, Westconnex, Sydney Olympic swimming pool and excavating the basement for Crown Sydney at Barangaroo (while the building went up, we were busy burrowing the basement underneath!). Ward received a Master Builders Association Safety Excellence award for the Crown Sydney project with the judging panel likening our safety processes to “the inner workings of a Swiss watch”.
