NZIOB Webinar: Application of Digital Engineering in The Water Sector


Auckland is expanding rapidly. Essential infrastructure needs to keep pace with this growth, including the water supply network. That’s why Watercare commenced The Waikato River to Redoubt (R2R) programme to deliver an additional 50 million litres of treated water per day from Waikato River to Auckland. The fast track nature of this programme, presented several challenges to design, consenting and construction teams. The programme needed to be procured, designed, consented, constructed and commissioned in parallel and within 12 months’ time frame to meet Watercare’s target operational date in line with predicted lake storage forecasts.

Watercare, and its partners Beca, Fletcher Construction Company Ltd (FCC) and Fulton Hogan (FH) recognised the criticality of implementing effective digital engineering (DE) processes to achieve the outcomes of the programme. During this webinar, Farzam and Sven will share their experiences about innovations developed to implement effective digital engineering approaches for the R2R programme, challenges they faced and outcome of the programme.
