Design panel for ambitious Three Waters Programme

Design panel to be assembled for ambitious Three Waters Programme

The Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) Infrastructure team will be releasing a request for proposal (RFP) this week to assemble a design panel for their ambitious Three Waters Programme (the Programme).

The Programme is in the long term plan and comprises multiple, staggered projects to improve and upgrade critical infrastructure in the district’s storm water, waste water, and water supply.

The Programme will enable local infrastructure to keep pace with growth and demand, and is three times larger than anything that QLDC has previously delivered for the community. The complexity and scale of the Programme has led to a bundled approach to take this work to market.

QLDC General Manager Property and Infrastructure Peter Hansby advised that to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of asset improvements, similar and compatible types of work have been bundled together into ten packages, representing approximately 60 projects.

“By using this bundle and panel approach, we will have a panel of suppliers on-hand who have the required capabilities to deliver the Three Waters programme. This will ensure the right suppliers are chosen for the right bundle of work,” said Mr Hansby.

“Prior to Christmas we will also be releasing a request for proposal to assemble a physical works contractor panel,” he said.

The design panel RFP will be open for submissions via the GETS portal on Friday 2 November.
