Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure, with joint venture partners, awarded Capital Works Program for Melbourne Water
Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure (Abergeldie) in a joint venture with partners RCR Tomlinson (RCR) and Stantec Australia (Stantec) is pleased to announce that an initial 3-year Framework Agreement plus extensions of up to a further seven (7) years has been executed with Melbourne Water to deliver critical projects for its Water and Sewerage Capital Works Program.
Abergeldie, together with its partners, will deliver a program of works covering a diverse range of design and construct and pipeline rehabilitation projects. Melbourne Water has indicated that the capital works program over the next 3-year period is valued at approximately $500 million. The program will be shared between Abergeldie and its partners, and one other preferred service provider.
We are proud to have executed this agreement after Melbourne Water initiated a rigorous and innovative selection process with a particular focus on social procurement, which required all applicants to complete Hudson Safety Culture surveys and personality tests to identify cultural alignment. Abergeldie, RCR, and Stantec demonstrated that we were able to meet Melbourne Water’s requirements including commitment to business integrity, diversity, inclusion and reconciliation as well engineering and construction expertise, approach to safety, capability and cost.
This agreement reflects another important step in Abergeldie’s 24-year history as an Australian owned multi-discipline construction company that delivers complex infrastructure contracts. Recent and current projects include a broad range of civil works, including structural remediation, wastewater treatment plants and reticulation facilities, potable water storage, roads, bridges, rail, dams, pipe lines, mine ventilation shafts, tunnels, electrical sub stations, materials handling and recreational facilities.
Mick Boyle, Abergeldie Managing Director, said “We are extremely pleased to be involved in delivering this program of works alongside our joint venture partners and Melbourne Water. It is important and complex work and we are looking forward to safely and innovatively providing and rehabilitating the essential infrastructure needed to build better communities across Melbourne.”
