The Challenges of Building $270 million of stormwater management infrastructure to protect the environment of Blacktown City Council

15 Mar 2019
  • Blacktown Council plans to spend $270 million worth of development funds to build stormwater quality and quantity management measures over the next 20 years.
  • Council mostly plans to construct bio-retention systems to achieve its water quality objectives.
  • Construction at this scale has not been undertaken before anywhere in the world.
  • Bioretention systems are a relatively immature technology and this poses enormous challenges to both designers and constructors.
  • Sourcing a sustainable supply of raw materials for construction is a challenge as the quantities and costs are significant.
  • Council has developed many interesting approaches to managing the project risks with a view to delivering required outcomes.

What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
    Perfect Hire
  • This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
    High Exposure
  • The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
  • I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
    Tradie Web Guys
