Implementation of sustainability on a motorway upgrade to obtain an ‘Excellent’ IS rating

Project

When the Bielby Hull Albem JV (BHA) had won the Design and Construct contract for this $176 million motorway upgrade, it accepted an obligation to achieve an ‘Excellent’ rating under the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating scheme. This was new to the contractor and new to the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR).

Solution

Losee Consulting worked closely with BHA to set up necessary systems (e.g. the sustainability management plan), ensuring BHA collected evidence and took opportunities to claim points. We were responsive to BHA’s needs and completed additional tasks to fill gaps in BHA capability (e.g. energy, water, and materials modelling).

Through this, BHA was able to align expenditure with meeting its contractual requirement for an ‘Excellent’ rating, meanwhile developing its team’s skills to reduce future dependency on consultants.

R2D achieved its ‘Excellent’ design rating, with more than nine points above the minimum requirement, and has confirmed the ‘Excellent’ standard for the As Built rating.
