“We wish to thank the AIB and acknowledge the other winners and entries from across Australia. This award is recognition of our commitment to creating a better future through innovation and active leadership in the Australian Construction Industry.” Harvey said.

Managing Director, Tom Wiley said. “This award is a landmark achievement for Wiley; it is a testament to the many years of diligent hard work by our entire team.”

“Graham Harvey led our project team to deliver this outstanding facility for Primo, this award is well deserved industry recognition to both our team and Graham as he adds this project to his long list of successful projects over his 40 year tenure at Wiley.”
