Bayswater Grade Separation #tbt

#ThrowbackThursday

We’re stepping back to 2016 with Civilex’s heavy bulk earthworks project in Bayswater where Civilex deployed 50 pieces of earthmoving equipment with over 75 personnel that worked around the clock.

At the end of 2016 Civilex was awarded the major works on the Bayswater Grade Separation project for Laing O’Rourke Fulton Hogan Alliance and VicRoads. The project involved removing two of Victoria’s most dangerous level crossings at Scoresby Road and Mountain Highway as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project.

Show Your True Colours with Civilex

Civilex is participating in its third Footy Colours Day event on Friday 7 September.

In 2016 we raised $550 but blew that completely out of the water in 2017 with a phenomenal fundraising effort of $15,093. And this year…the target is $20K.

Civilex Project Manager and Footy Colours Day organiser Nick Loucaides says, “This year we’re aiming even higher with a target of $20K and organising social BBQs that will take place on Friday 7 September at our Spotswood head office and our very own Civilex BBQ truck (see our previous post on the Chevy BBQ truck at Lorne) will make its way to Civilex’s CD9 (Caulfield to Dandenong level crossing removal project) construction site in Murrumbeena, with other BBQs organised at Metro Tunnel project and possibly another site location so stay tuned for details.”

The day is all about coming together and raising funds for Fight Cancer Foundation where money raised helps young learners gain access to smart technology to help them stay in touch with their school while they receive treatment for cancer.

You can donate to our Footy Colours Day fundraising page.

Last year the BBQ was held at the Civilex Pakenham HCMT Project and was amazing with participants expressing their joy at the number of Civilex suppliers and clients jumping on board and participating in fundraising for such a great cause together. “The day was a big hit on our construction site in Pakenham and once we got the online page going we really started to gain some momentum and everyone jumped on board! Thirty-six related businesses and individuals really got behind the cause and contributed to our fantastic overall result.”

2017 Footy Colours Day was an awesome team effort raising $15,093. This year the target is $20K!

And this year we want to raise $20K! Will you help us?

All you have to do is join in the fun – wear your footy colours, come along to one of our BBQs, share the cause and help us raise funds for the Fight Cancer Foundation.

Happy Jeans For Genes Day

Happy 25th anniversary to Jeans For Genes.

Jeans For Genes is a major fundraising campaign for Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI). Over the past 25 years, Jeans For Genes has helped CMRI achieve amazing things in the search for cures for children’s genetic diseases.

Our group of companies – Civilex-Conset-Grampians has participated in its second Jeans For Genes day along with the other 41,000+ workplaces. Today we wore our denim – jeans, jackets, vests (making a come back apparently!) and our employees contributed to CMRI’s vision of supporting every parent’s hope for a healthy child – sadly 1 in 20 children is born with a birth defect or genetic disease (that’s one in every classroom) – and help us create a future without serious childhood diseases.

We’re proud to be one of the thousands of workplaces making a difference on Jeans For Genes day.

In 2017 our group raised $350 for Jeans For Genes and this year we’ve doubled our fundraising efforts to well over $700! We are proud to be involved in helping CMRI reach a $25 million milestone for their 25th anniversary. There’s still the opportunity to make a donation on our Jeans For Genes fundraising page.

Our staff donate for a variety of reasons.

Mary donated because she wants to support a great cause that helps raise funds for children’s research, something that definitely resonates with her being a mum of two children.

Nick donated as he has personally been the recipient of successful cancer treatments in the past, due in part to other peoples donations to research endeavours, and he always tries to ensure that someone in the future may also benefit in the ways he has.

Lisa donated because she has experienced the journey of her close friends who have a child with a genetic disease and wants to support finding cures.

What’s your reason for donating?

We are supporting Jeans for Genes because we want to help discover treatments and cures and to give every child the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.
