Norwest Train Station
Cisco Construction was responsible for complete FRP services for this high-profile NRT (Northwest Rapid Transit) project for Sydney Metro Trains. With a budget of $6 million and lead time spanning 18 months, our responsibilities encompassed formwork, reinforcing and concreting for walls, columns, decks, beams, slabs, stairs, lift shafts etc. Also including precast installations, the project required one-sided formed walls, with pours of 450m³ and 650m³.
Cisco Construction was originally awarded a 4-month contract covering select areas of this project however our high standards of safety, productivity and quality resulted in our involvement being expanded to encompass over 4600m³ of poured concrete.
Thirlmere Pump Station Project
The Thirlmere Pump Station Project had a budget of $3.5 million and was completed over a 4-month period.
We were required to construct an 8-metre deep wet well in addition to a 48-metre retaining wall and various other concrete structures. Our responsibilities also included supplying and installing all connecting sewer pipe, water reticulation and conduit as well as laying a 200m² access road and 250m² hardstand area including gutters and kerbs.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend the services of Cisco Construction.
Cisco Construction was engaged on the Thirlmere Sewerage Wastewater Pump Station from Sept 2018 to Feb 2019. This project was administered for Sydney Water.
Their scope on the project involved constructing a 3m diameter x 8m deep Wet Well, a 1.8m diam x 7m deep Inlet Maintenance Hole & a 50 metre long x 2m high retaining wall. They were also tasked with undertaking installation of all interconnecting pipework between the various structures (water reticulation, sewer and electrical conduits) as well as placing a 500m² access road and hardstand including 170m of kerb and gutter.
They consistently met weekly targets which ensured the project milestones were achieved.
At all times during the project Cisco Construction displayed exceptional organisation, expertise and commitment to project aims. Their supervision are dedicated to maintaining high levels of safety and are proactive in the development and ongoing improvement of work practices in order to meet the safety standards required on the site.
Personally I was impressed at the willingness of Cisco to work in with Diona management and offer their support and coverage when required during the project.

On many occasions it was a pleasure to work with Cisco. John Craddock is a highly skilled professional and his team represent his quality workmanship and attention to detail.
As a production engineer in the precast concrete industry, I always felt confident when Cisco was managing my projects, as I know they are capable, proficient and trustworthy. They were quick to find non-compliance issues and ways of rectifying them. They are quick to adapt to changing designs and conditions on site and go above and beyond to surpass customer expectations. They are respectful and appreciate all stakeholders involved in the projects they work on.
If you hold high quality workmanship in high-esteem, I am glad to recommend the services of Cisco Construction.
