A Bunbury construction company has been recognised in the 2018 WA Heritage Awards for its work on a unique goldmine head frame.

Constructive PD received a commendation for Conservation of a State Registered Place for its work on the historic Sons of Gwalia headframe in the Leonora shire.

The innovative conservation project saved the structure from destruction after it showed clear evidence of deterioration, according to Constructive PD managing director Ian Meachem.

“We were incredibly proud and honoured to have been the company responsible for the restoration of this significant landmark,” Mr. Meachem said.

“The restoration of the iconic head frame took five months of comprehensive planning and project delivery to ensure the integrity of the heritage-listed structure was maintained.

“This great outcome in a remote location brought together skills and expertise, especially in engineering and timber-craft.”
