WSP is partnering with Hunter Water as project program manager to help deliver its water and wastewater service capital works program over the next six years.
In February this year, water utility Hunter Water announced a new procurement approach for its capital works program, which will be a key part of delivering improved high quality services to the community.
Over the past three to five years, Hunter Water has put approximately AU$100 million per year towards the program; however, the utility has seen an increasing need to invest in its assets over the coming five years.
This new procurement strategy involves the engagement of a project management partner – recently announced as WSP – and the establishment of a panel of contractors for the design and construction of major projects.
Major projects within the program include upgrades to wastewater and water treatment works, large water trunk mains and back log sewer areas.
WSP said it will provide project management, contract management, tendering, project controls, site surveillance and specialist technical services.
“Hunter Water’s capital investments in the region will provide sustainable services for population growth,” said WSP’s NSW Section Executive for Water Ian Chase.
“Our Newcastle team, which is locally dedicated, will leverage support from our wider water and major projects experts across our global business to optimise the delivery of this program.”
