South Australia 2019 Excellence Awards Winners

Commercial Project of the Year Winner

Ray Wadsworth, Island Electrics
Island Electrics successfully tendered and were awarded the project working for the Adelaide based builder, a coup for the Kingscote based business. This project involved electrical reticulation, security/CCTV, voice & DATA. The electrical scope crossed over with many areas of the project including A/C, plumbing & baggage handling systems. The quality of the finished build and its appearance can only be achieved with attention to detail & the initial foundation to the project being well delivered.

Ray’s team of 5 successfully completed all electrical work including automation for the luggage conveyor. The project was completed to budget and on time._

Women in Contracting Award

Brooke Green, Glow Heating Cooling Electrical
Brooke is a passionate people person and likes to see her staff grow. Not only in their business role, but as individuals in their own lives – watching a young apprentice start and then seeing them buy their own first house!

Brooke has a real passion for her business and its people. Her management of business growth and the innovation applied to handle that was a stand-out.

Residential Project of the Year Award

Garry Nau, GESA
The homeowners wanted to extend their residence so their elderly parents could move in.  They wanted usable living space for the whole family.

As you well know, residential work often uncovers challenges.  GESA were able to address these.  Using their job management system, the team could quote on the go, have the variation signed off and the job done with minimal fuss and no interruption to the client who moved back in early. All this while maintaining a high standard of work and safety for all parties involved.

Legrand Apprentice of the Year Award

Matthew Weninger, Electric Results
Matthew knew he wanted to be a tradie but was unsure of which trade to choose.   He decided that electrical intrigued him the most providing career diversity.

After always wanting to be in the trade and starting his working career in the food industry Matthew got a kick start with an electrical apprenticeship. With plenty of dedication and skill he has really applied his understanding of customer service and what is required. With the appropriate leadership and training he will develop into a great electrician.

Energy Efficiency Project of the Year Award

Troy Smith, Electric Results
This project was part of an overall energy efficiency initiative that includes replacement of lighting with LED, Solar and Building management systems of a major hospital. Electric Results replaced over 1200 lights throughout public areas, patient rooms, plantrooms and operating theatres.

Troy’s team worked closely with the Hospital as both project manager and contractor to progressively upgrade lighting in many sections of the hospital to current LED technology.  Electric Results ability to manage safety in a working hospital and meet infection control requirements was a key factor in the awarding of the contract. The project was delivered on time meeting or exceeding the original brief.

Electrician (Tradie) of the Year Award

Ryan grew up in country South Australia. After learning many valuable lessons, he decided he wanted to own a business.  He researched and planned meticulously & with the help of business coaching he was able to develop business skills which are not taught as an apprentice.
