Contracts signed for $A400 million of water works

Contracts were signed this month by two joint ventures: Fulton Hogan, Delplant and Beca; and Comdain Infrastructure, Downer EDI and MWH. The two teams have secured a place as South East Water’s capital delivery partners for major pipes and structures work.

South East Water General Manager Asset Creation Charlie Littlefair said the program of works will start this month and continue through until June 2018, in line with the company’s five year Water Plan.

“The program will deliver approximately $400 million in capital works, with a focus on designing and constructing trunk sewer mains, water distribution mains, recycled watermains, water and sewage pump stations, reservoirs and contingency tanks and minor sewer treatment plant upgrades,” said Mr Littlefair.

“We’re confident that our new model will allow for the best of competition combined with the best of collaboration in the delivery of new works over the coming five year period. We look forward to the two teams delivering South East Water – and our customers – the very best value in water and sewerage infrastructure,” he said.
