Overview

The Western Corridor Recycled Water Project is an important part of the Queensland Government’s $9 billion South East Queensland Water Grid, the largest urban drought response in Australia. The purpose of the pipeline is to link existing wastewater treatment plants with new advanced water treatment plants, transferring purified recycled water to end users.

CMC were awarded the design and construct contract for both booster pump stations as one package, with both to be designed and built in parallel. Additional works included installation, earthworks, drainage, landscaping, concrete pavements, new intersection to join existing roads, site fencing, and security.

The delivery of the entire Recycled Water Project was fast tracked due to extreme pressure on Brisbane water supplies, and successful delivery of these two booster pump stations were integral to the whole operation of the pipeline network.

Highlights

Collaboration: CMC’s dual capacity as a civil and building contractor provided an integrated construction solution for the multidisciplinary works, allowing the Eastern Pipeline Alliance to be managed by a single contractor rather than separate subcontractors.

Problem-Solving: The project’s rapid start amid a peak in construction activity across Brisbane made hiring specific subcontractors challenging. To address this, CMC utilised its internal teams for underground pipework installation, earthworks, and construction of concrete slabs.
