2015 was a jaw dropping year for markets and investors and it had a major impact on businesses all over the world. Our small business was not exempt from the dramas unfolding within a tumultuous economy. The up-and-down turbulence within the chinese economy had great impacts on the mining sector and the wide spread over production of oil meant a sharp down turn on oil prices.

For the past 4 years (2011 to 2015) GBA Projects had provided significant support to hundreds of projects within numerous portfolios at Santos and it was at the end of the year that we concluded our work there. It had been a solid 4 years of effort from the team which assisted Santos in streamlining the implementation of project controls across the portfolio. 

In 2015 though, we also were engaged by SA Health Partnership to provide reporting functions to their board for the new Royal Adelaide Hospital development.

We also took on Kalari Freight Services as a client who had recently won a contract with BHP Billiton to provide transport services. GBA Projects provided the scheduling services required to ensure that Kalari's delivery of these services commenced on time. Specifically we planned and scheduled the build of its new fleet - which we see driving in and out of Olympic Dam currently.

Company Director Luke Betros had successfully delivered the Mount Isa Sulphuric Acid Plant 2014 Major Turnaround the year before and 2015 became a special year for him and the team at Incitec Pivot. The project won the 2015 AIPM Project Management Achievement Award for the Regional Projects category, as well as taking out the same award at the national level.

2015 also saw our final support to the Pt Pirie Transformation project.
