A program to ensure reliable water infrastructure for Sydney’s growing population has been awarded to a Joint Venture between John Holland, Lendlease Services, Comdain Infrastructure (a Service Stream Group company) and WSP.
The work will maintain the health of Sydney’s waterways including beaches, rivers and tributaries as Greater Sydney grows by an extra 2.71 million people and 570,000 homes by 2036.
Sydney Water has appointed the “Delivering for Customers” (D4C) joint venture as a Regional Delivery Contractor under its Partnering for Success (P4S) program to service the customers of today and tomorrow.
The Joint Venture will be responsible for the delivery of design, construction, maintenance and facility management across Sydney Water’s assets in the Southern region for the next 10 years.
The program aims to meet the future needs of Sydney’s growing population and will deliver greater value to Sydney Water and its customers through reduced costs and improved efficiency of capital and maintenance delivery ensuring Sydney’s iconic way of life is maintained for the community.
The D4C integrated regional delivery team has committed to delivering at least 70% of the works through its directly employed workforce and owned plant. This commitment will ultimately support economic and employment benefits to local communities, while in tandem growing a strong collaborative and inclusive culture and diversity of thought within D4C.
D4C Program Director Phil Jones said the appointment of the joint venture reflects the strong track record of the team in delivering positive outcomes for Sydney Water and its customers.
“Our team has a long and successful history of working with Sydney Water. Being awarded this contract reinforces the strong relationship between our organisations and Sydney Water’s trust in us to provide solutions that meet the future needs of their customers.”
“We look forward to partnering with Sydney Water to implement an innovative, sustainable and value for money approach to the management of their assets.”
The contract will commence in January 2020 and during delivery will see more than 400 personnel working across a wide range of water infrastructure projects throughout the region.
