Sydney Water has appointed a contractor for the $87 million Green Square Trunk Stormwater Project.
The contract has been awarded to the Drying Green Alliance, which comprises Seymour Whyte, UGL Engineering, Parsons Brinkerhoff Australia, RPS Manidis Roberts and client partners Sydney Water and City of Sydney.
The Green Square project involves the construction of a 2.4km kilometre stormwater drain to address flooding issues within the Green Square urban renewal area to enable future development.
David McAdam, Managing Director of Seymour White said, “The Group is delivering on its strategic plan through bigger projects and better opportunities for our utilities business, Rob Carr Pty Limited.
“The combined capabilities between Seymour Whyte Constructions and Rob Carr positions the Group as a diversified services and infrastructure company with readily transferable expertise for large scale projects.
“Securing the Green Square project demonstrates successful strategy implementation by taking our utilities business to the next level of tendering and project delivery capability,” he said.
“RCPL has achieved great success in delivering complex utilities projects across Australia, reinforcing the Group’s leading position in micro-tunnelling and underground services,” he said.
Delivery of the Green Square project will begin soon, and is expected to be completed by late 2016.
