We invite you to have a glimpse into the activities and services that CARAS can provide! We are here to help.
CARAS is pleased to have successfully project managed the delivery of another National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Local Area Coordination Office in Shellharbour for Uniting.
As Project Manager, we are proud of the safety, environmental, quality and commercial outcomes achieved on the project.
The project required the full fit-out of a 290sqm space that had been previously used as a gym in a 6 week construction period.
Australia's leading remediation project management consultancy, CARAS, manages site auditing and project management records and documentation using Dashpivot.
“We dream about cleaning up the country” Envirobank Recycling. CARAS is happy to announce the official partnership with Envirobank Recycling. The recycling of plastic, aluminium, glass, and liquid paperboard is vital to preserving sustainable systems. Thus, we have decided to act in today’s sustainable global movement. By collecting and sending suitable containers to Envirobank Recycling, CARAS will raise funds which go to a charity organisation nominated by the CARAS team. Established in 2008, Envirobank is an Indigenous-owned company committed to achieving positive environmental and social impact by rewarding cans and bottles recycling. According to the National Waste Policy (2018), Australia recycles 37 million tonnes and recovers energy from 2 million tonnes of the 67 million tonnes of waste produced per annum; this means that we recover 58% of all generated waste as a country. In CARAS, we believe that waste can be used as a resource that impulses a circular economy. Hence we help with consistent steps towards sustainability.
CARAS recently engaged with Better Business Partnership (BBP), an organisation funded by the North Sydney and Willoughby City Councils. BBP has been promoting and supporting local businesses since 2009 to become more successful through sustainability. CARAS was awarded the badges of WASTE, WATER, TRANSPORT, STAFF, BYE-BYE PLASTIC, PURCHASING, and BUSINESS HEALTH. Big shout out to Lin Ningthoujam, who took the lead in getting the certification!
Congratulation to Linthoingambi (Lin) Ningthoujam and the CARAS team on obtaining re-certification of our Integrated Management System from QMS Certification Services - Australia. At CARAS, we are committed to maintaining a culture focused on safety, quality and the environment. CARAS first obtained certification to AS 4801, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 three years ago and since then we have ensured all functions of our business are performed in accordance with our ISO accredited Integrated Management System.
At CARAS, our people are our business. A decade running a business provides many and varied challenges - financial, technical and operational. The character and success of CARAS is defined by how our people have managed difficult situations to create positive outcomes. We acknowledge the contribution of our fantastic clients and say Thank You to all of our staff, past and present who have enabled us to achieve this 10 year milestone.
CARAS recognises the growing concern of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our daily lives and how the current pandemic is changing the way we work and live. As we continue to conduct the monthly safety audits for all the PCs on the Project, CARAS is committed to observing and implementing all possible measures to contain the COVID-19 transmissions as advised by the Ministry of Health, NSW.
The CARAS team were lucky enough to be able to celebrate St. Patrick's day this year just before the COVID 19 restrictions were implemented. While an Australian company, we like to celebrate our Irish connections and have the "craic" with our clients, suppliers and team.
In December 2019, CARAS welcomed Any Su and Thushara Lekamge to be part of the CARAS team as part of the Defense Industry Internship Program (DIIP). The purpose of the DIIP is to increase awareness of career opportunities in the defence industry and provide student interns with the opportunity to gain real-world work experience in a growing sector such as construction. The Program matches small to medium sized defence industry enterprises (SMEs) with students nearing the end of an undergraduate engineering degree for a paid 12-week internship. Any and Thushara were an excellent addition to the CARAS team, with the amazing support from QTAC ensuring a great experience for all involved.
Having anywhere from 15 to 20 projects going at once, time management is a massive challenge. Dash Pivot enables us to capture all information regarding safety, quality, environment and cost on the fly while enabling us to produce quality reports. This new digitalization tool allows CARAS to cut down on our administration time and access it easily and quickly.
