M1 Upgrade, Burleigh to Palm Beach—Sustainability managementImplementation of sustainability with construction team on major highway road upgrade
As part of the Pacific Motorway (M1) Varsity Lakes to Tugun (VL2T) upgrade, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) included a requirement for a Sustainability Management Representative to oversee sustainability management and implement the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating scheme during construction.
Following award of its first major project, SMA Infrastructure, a joint venture comprising Sunstate Group Queensland (SGQ), McIlwain, and Albem Operations, engaged Losee Consulting to become the Sustainability Management Representative for the Burleigh to Palm Beach (B2PB) section of the upgrade.
B2PB is one of three packages, the Australian Government is contributing $680 million toward the VL2T upgrade and the Queensland Government is contributing $320 million. The upgrade is supporting an average of 850 jobs.

- Brief the project team on sustainability requirements and expectations
- Deliver training
