Mawson Constructions has been highly commended for its work on Shepparton’s Vaughan St redevelopment at the annual Civil Constructors Federation Earth Awards.

General manager John Harvey said the project not only transformed the retail precinct, but also helped the company grow.

‘‘We are really excited and quite proud of the team and the work they did,’’ he said.

‘‘We employed as many of our local partners as we could, all the people who worked on it were locals.’’

The company was highly commended in the $1million to $5million category.

Mr Harvey was also delighted to see how the public had embraced Vaughan St and how pride in the area had been restored.

Greater Shepparton City Council director of infrastructure Steve Bowmaker said the Vaughan St design elements would be used with future projects, including the linkage to the railway station at the eastern end of Vaughan St and the bus interchange and streetscape works planned for Maude St up to the mall.

‘‘The intention in the design was to create a new identity,’’ Mr Bowmaker said.

‘‘The level of vandalism has dropped away significantly since the redevelopment, so people are also taking pride in the area.’’
