Key Success Factors

The EPCM model involved a collaborative, partnering approach which required consultation with multiple stakeholders during planning and implementation phases. The projects each required integration of various design disciplines and the application of project delivery, contract management, construction supervision and commissioning expertise.

During the construction phase of the project, Hunter H2O was engaged as Hunter Water Corporation’s agent and managed hundreds of contracts on its behalf.

Hunter H2O used its tailored, government‐accredited risk management and procurement systems and tools to ensure the works were successfully delivered.

KPIs for quality, time and budget were met across the program. The program had an excellent safety outcome with zero lost‐time injuries.
