RCS Group supports local Westpac Helicopter Service

RCS Group becomes a member of Westpac Helicopter’s Workplace Giving Program.

Westpac Helicopter Service can be a vital resource for workplace safety.

RCS Group Director, Tony Riordan, was keen to recognise the wonderful work done by the Westpac Helicopter  service and at the same time improve workplace safety for his employees.

Mindful of the risks to his employees when venturing out into remote rural areas, Tony has provided each of his field teams with a Personal Locator Beacon. These beacons are to be used if an employee is injured in an area without mobile coverage. Of course these beacons will only help if Search & Rescue can quickly locate the  injured worker and the Westpac Helicopter Service can be a vital link in the rescue process.

Tony has offered his employees the opportunity to support the rescue service through a payroll deduction. Recognising the important service provided by Westpac Helicopter, all the employee’s at RCS Group eagerly signed up to a Workplace Giving Program challenge. Each employee will now make a donation from their pay each fortnight. While the employees hope they will never need the service they feel safer knowing a rescue plan exists.

Contact Westpac Helicopter Rescue for more information about their Workplace Giving Program challenge.

Far North Coast Hockey infrastructure gets a boost.

RCS Group are proud to be acknowledged for our support to help Far North Coast Hockey obtain funding for significant upgrades of their facilities in the Northern Rivers. Following below is a press release by Clint Mallett, President Far North Coast Hockey:

Far North Coast Hockey Announcement:

 This morning at 10.00 am at the Far North Coast Hockey Centre; the Federal Member for Page Mr Kevin Hogan announced that Far North Coast Hockey has been successful in their application to The Building Better Regions Funds for the development of a second field at Goonellabah.

The federal government will be contributing $764,478.00 towards the $1,528,956.00 project. There needs to be a deed of Agreement signed and once that is signed we hope to start works immediately the hockey season is over. Our Project Schedule indicates work commencing 02-10-2017 and completing 23-02-2018 but that depends on the Deed of Agreement being signed. FNC Hockey submitted their first letter about the second field in July 2007 so over many years people have contributed in some way. I want to acknowledge some people that without them this project would not be happening:

  • The Hockey Community at large, in particular those that attended this morning,
  • Our Board of the day and those before, especially Chris Clark for developing our Business Case,
  • Our Executive of the day and those before, in particular Shez Napper for her invaluable assistance in submitting the application,
  • The Lismore and District Sports Association that developed into the Policy Advisory Group for Sport and Recreation especially Cheryl Amor, Steve Mackney, Lyn Larsen and Neil Marks whose support was pivotal
  • James Voght Community Services Officer Sport & Recreation Lismore City Council whom without, this opportunity would not have arisen
  • Tony Duffy Manager Major Recreation and Cultural Facilities Lismore City Council whom without, this opportunity would not have arisen
  • Lismore Council Members in particular Councillors Neil Marks, Gianpiero Battista and Isaac Smith for supporting us in the approval processes
  • Lismore City Council Finance Manager Rino Santin
  • Tony Riordan – RCS Group Australia
  • Steven Fletcher – Fletcher and Associates
  • Jo McKellar – Destination Research
  • Kevin Franey – TNR Accountants
  • All those who have contributed in some way for this achievement

Today marks a new horizon for Hockey on the Far North Coast and will give us the status, standing, and opportunities that we so richly deserve.

RCS Group awarded “Highly Commended”

Delegates at the 12d Innovation Awards

Delegates at the 12d Innovation Awards

Software provider 12d Solutions recently held their International Innovation Awards at the Brisbane Convention Exhibition Centre. Some 400 delegates attended the conference designed to showcase the use of 12d products and explore areas for future development. RCS Group made a submission in the “12d Synergy” product category.

RCS Group adopted “12d Synergy” in their ambition to achieve ISO9001 certification. Using “12d Synergy” RCS Group is able to define the processes and associated tasks required to see a project from conception through to a successful outcome.  RCS Group’s submission outlined how we created a suite of job templates catering for a variety of differing project types where all the tasks are defined with resources allocated and all the associated documents and correspondence are stored in a defined filing system. 12d Synergy incorporates a document version control module allowing new versions of documents to be created each time a document is modified allowing roll-back to prior versions should the need arise and providing a detailed change history for resolving conflicts.

12d Synergy Certificate 50 percent

RCS Group was awarded Highly Commended for our customisation of 12d Synergy for use in the fields of Surveying, Town Planning, Civil Design, and Project Management.

RCS Group recognised at the 2016 NSW Surveying & Spatial Industries awards.

Highly Commended in the Spatial Enablement category.

Highly Commended in the Spatial Enablement category.

RCS Group received a “Highly Commended” award in the Spatial Enablement category at the 2016 Surveying Awards presented by NSW Surveying & Spatial Industries. This award recognises how the application of surveying, spatial information, mapping, cartography, design, planning, and software development have improved the outcome of a project.

RCS Group’s submission in this category highlighted how the use of new “Unmanned Aerial Surveying” technology delivers significant advantages for the client producing a data-rich 3D model. Using traditional and new unmanned aerial surveying (drone) techniques RCS group mapped a 120 hectare area of the Kinston & Arthur’s Vale Historic Area on Norfolk Island. The Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development will use the model to help plan infrastructure development at the historic site.

Aerial surveying delivers results in Norfolk Island

The RCS Group team recently visited Norfolk Island to undertake a Detail & Contour Survey for the Department of  Infrastructure and Regional Development. A 5 man team spent 10 days on the island using traditional and new unmanned aerial surveying (drones) techniques to map a 60 hectare area of the Kinston & Arthur’s Vale Historic Area. The use of the new drone technology delivered significant advantages for the client producing a data-rich 3D model to help plan infrastructure development at the historic site.

Unmanned Aerial Surveying has arrived!

Remotely piloted drones are perfectly suited to contour surveying for land development and remediation planning.

The benefits include:

Work in hilly / mining terrain:
Saves time when surveying in difficult terrain.
Cover areas that require more than one flight:
Map multiple flights to produce very large areas.
Fly in strong wind:
Fully operational with wind of up to 50 km/h (approx. 7Bft) with gusts up to 65 km/h (approx. 8Bft).
Robust operating performance:
Operate the system during hot or cold outside temperatures from -20° C to +45°C.
Weather resistant:
Operate in poor weather conditions, and even rain, avoiding costly weather delays.
High quality camera performs exceptionally well under low light conditions.
Worker Safety:
Survey dangerous or unsafe landscapes resulting in safer work practices.
