Water Corporation’s East Rockingham Wastewater Treatment Plant won the Project Management category at the Australian Business Awards last Friday.


The award recognises organisations that have achieved outstanding results through excellence in project management.


Water Corporation General Manager Assets Delivery, Mark Leathersich said the project was an example of how an effective alliance could deliver tangible benefits.


“The East Rockingham Wastewater Treatment Plant was delivered in an alliance between Water Corporation and Task JV, a joint venture between Jacobs and CPB Contractors,” Mr Leathersich said.


“Constructing a major metropolitan wastewater treatment plant presents unique challenges - with safety, community engagement and environmental approvals all vital to the project’s success.    


“The collaborative approach undertaken as part of our project management allowed us to identify issues and opportunities early in the process, to ensure the best outcome. This was the case from the design to the final commissioning of the plant.


“The plant was delivered on time and under budget, an achievement that can largely be attributed to the alliance’s collaborative approach.”


The East Rockingham Wastewater Treatment Plant can treat up to 20 million litres of wastewater from households and businesses bounded by Naval Base to the north, Singleton to the south and Byford to the east will be treated at the plant each day.


By 2070, it is expected the plant will be expanded to treat up to 160 million litres of wastewater a day, which will service about 800,000 people and make it one of the largest wastewater treatment plants in Perth.
