Kuraby & Paringa Road Booster Pump Stations (Design & Construct)

As part of the Queensland Government’s $9 billion South East Queensland Water Grid, the Western Corridor Recycled Water Project was the largest urban drought response in Australia, linking existing wastewater treatment plants with new advanced water treatment plants, to transfer purified recycled water to end users. The Kuraby and Paringa Booster Pump Stations are essential to the successful operation of the Luggage Point to Bundamba pipeline to achieve full capacity of 120ML per day (1400l/sec).

CMC were awarded the design and construct contract for booster both pump stations as one package, both were to be designed and built in parallel.


The scope of works included:

  • Design of all pipework, pumps, Motor Control Centre, civil works, building, electrical, including integrating into SCADA system and pump controls.
  • Two 50 x 20 metre reinforced concrete panel tilt-up buildings, structural steel roof and overhead crane.
  • Supply and installation of the associated 1050mm MSCL diameter pipe work, pumps, valves and fittings. All pipework tees, bends and fittings were welded.
  • Civil works including, earthworks, drainage, landscaping, concrete pavements, new intersection to tie into existing roads and site fencing and security.
  • Fire mains

Highlights & Outcomes

  • CMC’s dual capacity as a civil and building contractor provided an integrated construction solution for the multidisciplinary works, allowing the Alliance to manage a single contractor rather than separate subcontractors.
  • CMC successfully designed and delivered the two pump stations, both were built in parallel and successfully delivered before the contractual completion date.
