Community Feedback on RCC Safety & Values

At RCC, the safety of staff and the community is our highest priority. It is embedded in our culture and our behaviours. We are extremely proud to have received community feedback acknowledging our commitment to safety and company values.…

“We live opposite UTS and every day we watch the work that you guys are doing building on the new UTS building on Broadway. Working for many years in an organisation where the safety goal was zero, safety was drilled into me! Watching your site, the evidence is there that you value safety through the way the building materials are organised and how the workers move around. We moved into the area just before demolition began so we have been with you guys from the start!

 

We googled you today and we both watched your corporate video to find out about who you are, and we agree that RCC is walking your talk and living your values! We got to thinking there is no point in simply saying that to each other and that we should tell you too…so thus am sending this email to say well done for all the good work; we see the Crookes family values are shining through. All the best for the rest of the build”

RCC Values

Operational throughout NSW and the ACT, RCC is a private, family owned construction company that has been delivering projects as promised; on-time and budget, safely and to the highest quality since 1976.

We value our heritage as a family business and we’re proud of our family values. Launched in early 2014, our values were the result of a companywide survey undertaken by our personnel to determine what we believed to be the most important attributes of our company and our people. RCC takes pride in these values; they reflect the culture, character and the vision of our company and help guide our individual and collective behaviours.

More on the UTS Central Building 2 Project

The UTS Central Project includes the redevelopment of Building 2 and the extension of Building 1 (UTS Tower) podium to redefine the main entrance to UTS. This unique project will likely become a landmark building and offer students an urban precinct which will include new teaching spaces, a library, learning commons, research space and a retail area.
This development is a significant component of the broader UTS City Campus Master Plan and will create additional connections within the campus and further enhance the student experience.

Key Features include:

  • Twisting Cantilevered Tower
  • Green Roof Space and winter gardens
  • Super Lab
  • Double Helix Access Stairs
  • Numerous Atriums and Void Spaces
  • Curved Double Glazed Façade

This development is being delivered in a live environment in the middle of an operational University Campus and within a busy retail, residential and transport hub within Ultimo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MBA ‘Excellence in Construction’ Winners

RCC’s commitment to safety has been recognised at the 2017 NSW Master Builders Association (MBA) ‘Excellence in Construction’ Awards.

We are proud to have claimed an award in the category of ‘Site Safety- Innovative Safety Solution’ for our new smart phone application, ‘Risk Assessor’. Our work, health and safety team developed the application to further streamline and safeguard our project risk assessment process. Recognition from both the Master Builders Association and SafeWork NSW has reaffirmed the positive feedback received from users during its successful implementation on a range of projects across all sectors.

This innovative tool is assisting RCC staff, our subcontractors and project stakeholders to collectively consult, and assess risks and controls efficiently. This technology means that a project specific risk assessment can be accessed free of charge by all stakeholders on their smart phone at their convenience.

The ‘Risk Assessor’ app is one tool in RCC’s committed approach to ensuring the safety of all those on our sites and the public, and to making a positive contribution to safety across the construction industry.

“As one of the first contractors to be accredited across all areas of HSQE, we are glad this is now standard practice. RCC value the safety of everyone in our industry, clients and competitors alike.

The RCC leadership team unanimously support investment in innovative systems and technology that promotes safer project delivery and ultimately improves work health and safety outcomes across the construction industry”

Jamie Crookes, Managing Director
