In a game changing move for the water utilities sector, Arup and Aurecon have been appointed Sydney Water’s Planning Partner for the next 10 years.
While it is an emerging trend for water utilities to enter into sole partnership with consultants for planning and design services, this is believed to be the largest consultant engagement in Australia by a water utility.
Sydney Water is Australia’s largest water utility, covering water, wastewater and recycled water services across Greater Sydney. The combined team will support Sydney Water in technical advisory and project engineering roles to see its $600 million per year capital program through to successful completion.
Daniel Lambert, Arup’s Australasia Water Leader, said Aurecon and Arup bring complementary skills and deep experience to the integrated team.
