20 Project Manager NATIONAL WINNERS UPGRADING ADELAIDE'S WATER SUPPLY, BUILDING CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUNDS, REPLACING AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL TOWERS AND MANAGING ORGANISATIONAL CHANGE -- HERE ARE AUSTRALIA'S BEST-RUN PROJECTS BY CATEGORY. CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING LESS THAN $100,000,000 PROJECT: Azure Blue Redcliffe ORGANISATION: Aurecon & Blue Care Commencing in 2008, Azure Blue Redcliffe involved the construction of a retirement campus that offered three accommodation options: 122 independent-living apartments, in-home care services and a residential aged care facility with 96 high-care beds. To create a sense of community and promote active lifestyles, the development included subtropical landscaped grounds, a swimming pool, hair salon, BBQ facilities, gymnasium, cafe, function room and meeting rooms. "By providing independent living and aged care on the one campus, residents have the opportunity to age in one place as their needs change," says Aurecon Senior Project Manager Lavinia Buckley. "This is also important in providing for couples where a spouse has differing care requirements." Blue Care underwent organisational change during the project and reassessed it several times. It was on hold for three months while Blue Care established greater confidence in the sales rates and pricing for the product. Despite this, Aurecon used a project delivery framework that delivered the project on time and under the $73.8m budget. CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING GREATER THAN $100,000,000 PROJ ECT: North South Interconnection System Project (NSIS) ORGANISATION: SA Water & Waterlink SA The $403m upgrade of Adelaide's water supply system transformed how the water network functions and operates. The NSIS links Adelaide's water sources to deliver a single supply network, combining new and existing infrastructure and integrating bulk water transfer into the same water distribution network that delivers to homes and businesses across an entire city. The project team faced several challenges during the largest upgrade ever undertaken in Adelaide. It required the construction of four new pipes totalling 32km, three new pump stations in residentially zoned areas, five new valve stations and upgrades to 120 existing water network sites. A key role of the team was to manage stakeholder expectations of the disruption that would ensue. As well as developing new innovative practices for infrastructure projects and urban design, SA Water overcame cost and time constraints, as well as the need to manage risk and focus on safety, to deliver the project on time and on budget.
