A New Delivery Model for Developer Works

A New Delivery Model for Developer Works

Hunter Water's vision is to be a valued partner in delivering the aspirations for our region. This includes a key role in enabling the sustainable growth of the Hunter, including in supporting the Government's 2036 vision as articulated in the Hunter Regional Plan.

In consultation with the development and broader communities, Hunter Water has commenced a process of reviewing our practices, processes and policies to improve the ease of doing business, and to better play a role in facilitating good development.

One initiative is to place more autonomy back with the development community in the delivery of infrastructure where the associated risks are relatively low (Certification of Routine Works).

For more technically challenging works (Complex Works), Hunter Water wishes to remain fully engaged with Accredited Suppliers (Designers and Construction Contractors) in the asset creation process.

Into the future, we will be undertaking further engagement including revision of associated Design Standards, Approved Products, and further streamlining our internal processes to improve time efficiency and minimise the need for rework.

The Project

Hunter Water has initiated a project to develop and implement a new delivery model for developer funded infrastructure. There are two sub-projects:

Part 1 - Complex Works - Updated following consultation

Part 2 - Routine Works (Major and Minor)

This information package focuses primarily on Part 2 - Routine Major Works. The Routine Minor Works is still under development and information will be made available early June.

Routine Works Documents for Review - Consultation Period is from 19 May 2017 to 14 June 2017

Implementation for both Parts is now 1 July 2017.

Feedback on the Routine Major Works can be emailed to routineworks.consultation@hunterwater.com.au
