Abergeldie is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of two Construction Partners by WaterNSW to deliver their Asset, Renewals and Replacement Program (ARRP). The ARRP contract will be delivered over five years with an option to extend another three years.

Under the ARRP, Abergeldie will deliver multi-disciplinary packages varying in size and complexity, spread across a large geographical footprint in NSW. The scope is vast and includes, but is not limited to, civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical minor capital works and rehabilitation. The program is valued up to $80 million.

Abergeldie has extensive experience delivering asset reliability and renewals, dam safety upgrades and capital infrastructure delivery programs in long-term, collaborative framework agreements such as Networks Facilities Renewals Programs for Sydney Water, Safety Focused Performance (SFP) Joint Venture capital works program with Melbourne Water and West Region Delivery Team Partnering for Success (P4S) program with Sydney Water.

Abergeldie already has a strong reputation for delivering complex infrastructure projects in regional and metropolitan areas across Australia and New Zealand, with a delivery strategy to work with local suppliers, contractors including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities. Recently, Reconciliation Australia formally endorsed Abergeldie’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

Abergeldie’s previous experience coupled with an existing alignment with WaterNSW’s values will ensure that the program is delivered collaboratively and safely, keeping stakeholders and the community in mind.

Mark Bruzzone, Abergeldie CEO said, “We are looking forward to continuing to grow our collaborative relationship with WaterNSW. This framework will provide long-term employment opportunities for both WaterNSW and Abergeldie in regional NSW.

At Abergeldie, we deliver the complex infrastructure needed to build better communities and we are excited to continue on our mission with WaterNSW.”

 Repars to Dams from 2011 floods
Repairs to dams from 2011 floods

Abergeldie have just completed works immediately below the spillways of Queensland’s Wivenhoe, Somerset and Borumba Dams to repair damage caused by overtopping and emergency releases during the 2011 and 2013 floods.
At Wivenhoe Dam, most of the repair works were to the recreational area on the southern embankment of the river below the dam wall. Roads were rebuilt, pavements stabilised, new canoe access tracks created and extensive earthworks carried out to stabilise and reprofile the river embankments.
At Somerset Dam, extensive remediation works were carried out to the severely eroded right bank of the Stanley River. Abergeldie installed a new reinforced concrete spillway training wall, carried out repairs to scours, installed a new access road, replaced guardrails and handrails and installed rock protection and rip rap to stabilise embankments.
Works at Borumba Dam included remediation of the dam’s concrete embankment toe, valve house, spillway and plunge pool areas, and reinstatement of handrails and access pathways. To stabilise the river banks and bed, rock rip rap was placed downstream of the spillway and steel reinforced rock protection was installed adjacent to the spillway itself.
At all three sites, care was taken to protect the riparian habitat. At both Wivenhoe and Somerset Dams there are important populations of Australian Lung Fish, both within the dam reservoirs and in the rivers downstream. The waters above and below the Borumba dam are home not only to Australian Lung Fish but also to the endangered Mary River Turtle, which is found only in this one location.
