Water loss in the Lower Lakes region was severely impacting local business and domestic water use. Through the SA government, SA Water was required to provide treated filtered potable supplies to these communities from Tailem Bend with the construction of a network of pipelines, totalling 169 kilometres.
SA Water engaged Nova Systems to provide project management services including: deployment of a communications plan, cost control and procurement, risk management, time management, resource management and quality assurance. For Nova System’s efforts on behalf of SA Water, Engineers Australia awarded Lead Engineering and Construction Pty Ltd a commendation for Project Management at the South Australian Engineering Excellence Awards of 2010.
This project highlighted the importance of creating a set of behavioural ground rules to establish relationship parameters when working in teams as a means to manage different objectives and agendas.
