Client Icon Water
Project name CX11013 Network Access Upgrades Design & Construction Works Stage 3
Start date November 2021
Completion date October 2023
Contract value $3.1m


Due to the nature of these works, all pits / access hatches have undergone a risk based prioritisation scoring based on site criticality and delivery efficiencies.

ACT Steelworks through our design partner AECOM & in collaboration with Icon Water successfully completed the design & construction of access upgrades to 19 sites within the ACT.

These works varied from roadside vehicle crash barriers along a main arterial road, access ladders within 14 metre deep sewage storage chambers or the creation of a new in ground PRV pit with our civil partner Complex Co.

This project includes improvements to 32 separate pits distributed across 19 of Icon Water’s network assets.
