Water projects dominate AAA awards

NetWorks Alliance won the Team of Excellence in a Long-term Alliance award. Now in its fifth year, the NetWorks Alliance is a partnership between Sydney Water, Bovis Lend Lease, CLM Infrastructure and Veolia Water Network Services. The alliance is responsible for delivering a program of upgrade and renewal works across Sydney Water’s 13,000-square-kilometre network. The AAA said NetWork Alliance’s commitment to driving innovation and new technology for Sydney Water had resulted in a 40% increase in the use of trenchless technology on renewal projects.Meanwhile, Sydney Water took home the Outstanding Contributor to Alliancing award for its role as an advocate and pioneer of alliance contracting across the public sector.AAA executive director Alain Mignot said Sydney Water continued to champion alliance values, benefits and best practice.“Since creating Australia’s first public infrastructure project to use an alliance approach between public and private sectors in 1997, Sydney Water has been active in its support of the alliance community,” he said. The Clear Harbour Alliance from Auckland and Queensland’s Southern Regional Water Pipeline Alliance were also recognised with honourable mentions. The third award, for Team of Excellence in a Project Alliance, went to the Queensland Department of Main Roads’ Tully Alliance for its delivery of the Bruce Highway upgrade a year ahead of schedule.
