Comdain Infrastructure has commenced its first mains renewal project under the Sydney Water Network & Facility Renewal Program (NFRP). NFRP Reticulation Renewal Package 7 sees Comdain crews working across the Sydney area focusing on the south-west and west of the city, as well as the Blue Mountains.
As part of Sydney Water’s ongoing program to replace unreliable network infrastructure, these reticulation renewals will see Comdain project manage the detailed design phase and the delivery phase of the renewal of existing water mains. Conventional construction methods are used for these projects through open trench excavation, replacement pipe laying and full reinstatement.
Traffic management and local resident and stakeholder communications are paramount for this work. Comdain has engaged local service providers familiar with Sydney’s traffic control requirements, and has developed robust systems and methodologies for keeping residents informed throughout the duration of the works. Initial work site restoration is an important activity and part of community engagement ensuring that Comdain, on behalf of Sydney Water, leaves the work site in a safe, clean and functional state for later full reinstatement.
Comdain NSW State Operations Manager Tom Burns said, “Package 7 provides the catalyst for Comdain to demonstrate a robust, outcome-focused and diligent approach to project delivery through the implementation of a positive culture focused on exceptional safety, environmental, quality, community and compliance performance.”
