ACTEW Water, as part of The Bulk Alliance Group, was presented with Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating certificates at the annual Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) Awards Gala in Sydney recently.
The organisation and their alliance partners received the commended ratings for both the Enlarged Cotter Dam and Googong Water Treatment Plant Chemical Facility upgrade projects:
• The Enlarged Cotter Dam project received an ‘As Built’ rating for its inclusion of sustainable design elements and measured sustainability performance during construction and operation. This was a Bulk Water Alliance project.
• The Googong Water Treatment Plant upgrade received a ‘Design’ rating for its sustainable design and construction – an ‘interim’ rating awarded before the project is completed. This was an AAT Alliance** project.
David Hohnke, Manager of Communications at ACTEW Water, said that the team were thrilled that both projects received the coveted IS ratings.
“The ratings are fantastic recognition of the excellent sustainability outcomes achieved in the development of both projects. There’s so much the industry is still learning about sustainable infrastructure and it’s a significant achievement to be able to contribute to that work,” he said.
Infrastructure Sustainability is Australia’s only comprehensive rating system for evaluating sustainability across design, construction and operation of infrastructure.
ACTEW Water adds these ratings to its growing trophy cabinet, after the Enlarged Cotter Dam received two sustainability awards at the Public Works Engineering Australasia Awards in Queensland last month.
