Water Projects and Partners

Water is life, the saying goes, and getting water to where it is needed can be a life or death matter. With more than five million people to provide for, the delivery of water can be a complex and difficult project. One approach is to expand the water system with region delivery organizations, add a project control software company, and mix thoroughly.
Every day, Australia’s Sydney Water supplies 1.5 billion liters (more than 396 million gallons) of water to more than five million people who live and work in Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, and the Illawarra. To make this happen, Sydney Water collaborates with its three RDC (regional delivery consortia) through its “P4S (Partnering for Success) program, an innovative delivery model for all water and wastewater infrastructure.
Under the new model, Sydney Water entered a 10-year partnership with the RDCs to deliver end-to-end design, construction, maintenance, and facilities management services. Sydney Water will invest at least four billion Australian dollars ($2.93 billion U.S.) which will support more than 400 jobs, growing to 1200 over the coming years. This regional-based model will help deliver further efficiencies, improve network resilience, and deliver the services to meet the needs of Sydney Water’s customers for many generations to come.
InEight through its subsidiary, InEight Pty Ltd., has the contract to provide the P4S with integrated project controls system based on the InEight platform. These will reduce costs, increase confidence, and drive transparency and collaboration with the RDCs, explains Sydney Water.
Sydney Water’s three RDCs are comprised of 12 of Australia’s largest design and delivery organizations for public sector infrastructure and capital projects. Each will rely on the InEight platform for tracking and managing their framework contracts.
The InEight project controls platform was designed to meet the needs of construction owners and contractors of all sizes. It delivers consistent project controls workflows and integrates with existing third parties, such as ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, to optimize capital programs and project workflows.
