About the project
BDR’s Local Government client developed a Waste Management Strategy (“WMS”) to address the management of priority wastes, as required under Queensland’s Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011. The WMS was been prepared in the context of growing population and the desire of the community and Council to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill.
The development of the WMS focussed on the drivers for change from landfill methodologies to resource recovery methodologies, and with the aim of achieving the core objectives of:
- Optimising service
- Increasing diversion
- Balancing cost.
The WMS included the development of six key implementation plans, one of which was the Waste Infrastructure Plan (“WIP”).
The WMS and WIP described the proposed redevelopment and refocus of Council’s waste management strategy, with a network of waste management facilities scaled to suit a range of catchment demand planned to be designed.
BDR was engaged to provide project controls and procurement management services for delivery of the waste infrastructure plan programme.
- Development and maintenance of a master programme
- Review and development of reporting templates and procedures
- Cost control
- Development and implementation of planning templates
- Management reporting
- Review and recommendation of contracting strategies including form of contract, procurement plans and models
- Preparation of contract and procurement documentation
- Assistance with procurement administration including calls for tender, evaluation, award.
BDR provided expert project controls and procurement services for planning and implementation of the Local Council’s innovative Regional Waste Management Strategy, resulting in high level delivery outcomes within government environment constraints.
