Water North Package
Diona, in a joint venture with McConnell Dowell (MDJV), is engaged to deliver D&C works for SA Water’s Water North Program, a portfolio of projects that includes dam upgrades, water tank refurbishments, water main replacements, sewerage network upgrades and water treatment process changes. The works cover a significant geographical area, spread across both metropolitan Adelaide and regional South Australia.
“Each of our new major framework delivery partners brings skills and experience they will share with our people as they co-manage programs of works, to ensure our customers benefit from improved service reliability and quality.”
“Investing in water networks has wide reaching and long-term benefits, from the jobs created during construction, to the sustainable prosperity of a business able to access fit for purpose water, and the ongoing health and social outcomes that clean water and reliable sanitation services embed across generations,” said SA Water Chief Executive David Ryan in a press release announcing the program.
In collaboration with SA Water, MDJV combines its leading construction sector expertise with the design, project management and water industry expertise of SA Water and their front-end engineering and client organisation partners KBR and Aurecon. Diona specifically brings self-performance construction capability to the JV for a variety of activities under the framework which will provide the opportunity to optimise cost efficiencies for SA Water within the construction delivery phases through provision of practical constructability review and experienced construction crews delivering on-site.
