Luggage Point Advanced Water Treatment Plant

The Luggage Point Advanced Water Treatment Plant forms part of the Western Corridor Recycled Water Project which is the largest recycled water scheme in the southern hemisphere. It will use state-of-the-art technologies to improve the water quality of secondary treated sewage for reuse as potable water and industrial cooling water and will provide up to 66 megalitres per day of purified recycled water to the Western Corridor Recycled Water pipeline.

Our involvement

Aquenta was engaged to set up the reporting structure for cost of work spent, forecasting and costs to complete the project, contract administration on the civil engineering and structural concrete elements, assessment of variations, advice to the project management team on contractual and alliance based issues and preparation of final accounts.

Services

Contract Administration.

The outcome

The client recognised the need for robust cost control and reporting requirements at an early stage and as a result our team was onsite from early on in the contract to deal with the civil and structural elements of the project. Our ability to report accurately and to the required timescales was critical to the successful running of a project that also needed to meet delivery deadlines to avoid delay to subsequent contract packages.

In 2011, the project was awarded the International Water Reuse Project of the Year award.
