Watercare is New Zealand's larget water utilitiy. Controlled by Auckland Council, Watercare supplies water, and treats and disposes of wastewater for Auckland's 1.4 million residents.

To deliver their forward pipeline of work , Watercare has decided to implement an 'enterpise model' to deliver forward pipeline of capital works. The Enterprise Model will see two contractors selected to deliver a 10-year program of works, with the works shared between the two contractors.

It's intended that the enterprise model will drive greater cost efficiency and innovation, and help Watercare acheive it's targets of reducing carbon in infrastructure, reducing the cost of delivering their infrastructure program and improving health and safety outcomes.

Watercare held an industry breifing on 17 April prior to release of Request for Proposals in May 2019.

On 27 September 2019, Watercare announced it had selected Fulton Hogan and Fletcher Construction for the construction partnership. Major projects expected to be included under the partnership include the North Habour 2 Watermain, Southwest Wastewater Servicing Project and the Northern Interceptor, among others.

Watercare's current design partners, BECA, Stantec and GHD will work alongside Fulton Hogan and Fletcher Construction to deliver the program of work

 North Harbour 2 Watermain

VALUE: $247.3M AUD | $264M NZD
SECTOR: Water & sewerage
JURISDICTION: New Zealand
PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Alliance
TYPE: Greenfield

Watercare is progressing plans for the North Harbour 2 Watermain project, which involves the installation of a new watermain conveying portable drinking water from Auckland’s western water sources in the Waitakere Ranges to west-Auckland, North Shore and Rodney. In addition to increasing capacity in the water supply network, the new watermain will also allow the existing North Harbour 1, which transmits water from Titirangi to the North Shore, Whangaparaoa and Orewa, to be repaired without disrupting the water supply.

The watermain will be 33 kilometres in length and 1.2 metres in diameter. It will be located on existing road reserves, primarily along or adjacent to the State Highway 18 motorway corridor.

Construction on the project, is set to occur in stages between 2018 and 2026.

Watercare has already obtained resource consents for a small section of pipe that runs next to State Highway 18 and under the Greenhithe Bridge, which will be built first, as the existing pipe requires repairs. Watercare is continuing to progress other designation and consenting applications for the project.

PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Alliance
TYPE: Greenfield

Watercare, Auckland City Council's integrated water utility, is progressing plans for the construction of the Northern Interceptor, a new wastewater pipeline in Auckland. The Interceptor will transfer wastewater from north-western parts of Auckland to the Rosedale Wastewater Treatment Plant in Albany, servicing the North West and freeing-up capacity in the existing network for future growth.

Watercare submitted its Notices of Requirements and an Assessment of Effects on the Environment to Auckland Council in late 2016 regarding its proposed designations of land areas along the Nothern Inteceptor alignment. In August 2017, Watercare accepted Auckland Council's recommendation to confirm its Notices of Requirements in district plans.

The project will be constructed in stages, depending on the rate of population growth. The first phase of the project will take place between 2017 and 2020 and involve the preparation of consenting applications. Watercare will identify where infrastructure will be built during the designation phase between 2025 and 2030.

Construction for Phase 1 began in January 2019.

The South-West Wastewater Servicing Project aims to enhance Auckland Council's capacity to treat wastewater generated from growing communities in the Kingseat, Clarks Beach, Glenbrook Beach and Waiuku areas.

The project is being led by Watercare, a council-owned water utility which provides water and wastewater services to around 1.4 million people in the Auckland region. The Project proposes a new high-tech modern facility at the existing Waiuku Wastewater Treatment Plant, and construction of pipelines to convey treated wastewater to the proposed outfall in the Waiuku River channel near Clarks Beach.

Watercare lodged a consent application to discharge wastewater in the Waiuku River Channel, which was granted by the Environment Court on 27 June 2018.
