Pauline Bastiaens, Project Manager has been nominated for the Lendlease Building and Construction Award.
Pauline has managed Stage 1 of the ACMD (Aitkenhead Centre for Medical Discovery) at St Vincent’s Hospital. The first of its kind in Australia, ACMD will position Australia as a global leader in Biomedical Engineering. Pauline ran the project across four hospital buildings and eight levels throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Director Sarah Anne Munro has been nominated in the Icon Businesswoman Award category.
With a background in Broadcasting, PR and Marketing, Sarah adds a high level of expertise to Alchemy’s marketing and digital media presence. Recently, Sarah led the rebrand of Alchemy to take the company into the next stage of growth and has worked to set the strategic goals for the organisation over the next 1, 3 and 10 years, which includes multi-state and international expansion.
The NAWIC Awards recognise the achievements and industry advancements of women, men and organisations in the construction industry.
NAWIC is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1995 with the vision of empowering women in construction and related industries, and a goal to have a minimum of 25% female participation in the industry by 2025.
Alchemy is working hard to improve the average – which currently sits below 10% – with its workforce represented by over 25% women. It’s also one of the few Australian construction companies with a female co-director.
One of the company’s brand values is inclusivity, and Alchemy was founded upon the desire to create an inclusive and equal work environment, where employees feel welcomed and encouraged to thrive.
Director Jamie Nicolson said “there is nothing more necessary for construction than strong female representation. It makes our industry so much better. These amazing women are changing the game and killing it.”
