About this event

Please note that the time shown above is UK time, this event will be held 07.00-08.15 NZ time.

In early 2019 Watercare (New Zealand) introduced a new vision for its infrastructure construction delivery called 40:20:20. Watercare’s 40:20:20 vision for its capital works programme comprises; reducing infrastructure carbon by 40 per cent, reducing cost by 20 per cent and having a 20 per cent year-on-year improvement in health and safety outcomes.

In order to realise this vision, Watercare developed the Enterprise Model, which has adapted best practice from international models, and is breaking the mould for Watercare’s infrastructure construction delivery. A new procurement strategy has transformed how Watercare engages with suppliers and has been delivered through an innovative procurement process.

In this discussion David Ward CEng FICE, Head of Programme First at Watercare will discuss aspects of Watercare’s Enterprise Model, including:

  • Setting up the Client side
  • Delivering the contract model
  • Lessons learnt and wins

The case study will be presented by David Ward CEng FICE from Watercare during the Institution of Civil Engineers NZ Project 13 Community of Practice meeting – refer attached flyer for full agenda.
