What we need
The Otago Regional Council (ORC) currently maintains several floodbanks and associated structures (including rural bridges) across the Otago region. A section of the Clutha River’s Matau Branch was damaged during a weather event and needs repair works.
This opportunity involves the repair of approximately 140m of the true left bank of the Matau Branch of the Clutha River, adjacent to Water Street between the boat ramp and the Clutha District Council (CDC) pump station in the township of Kaitangata.
The ORC plan to complete this work prior to March 2024.
This project is located on Clutha District Council (CDC) land and involves work on flood protection infrastructure that is critical in protecting property, and strategic assets from flood hazard. The work will require careful planning and coordination to meet the needs of the client and landowners in minimising adverse effects on the residence of Kaitangata township and maintaining effective flood protection measure over the duration of the works.
What we don’t want
We do not want tenders that cannot meet the deadline of March 2024 for the completion of the physical work. We also do not want Tenders that have not satisfactorily assessed and mitigated the access and construction risks involved with a project of this nature (with particular consideration to flood protection and the water intake for the township).
What’s important to us
Respondents will require proven experience and skills in delivering successful civil construction projects that have required work to be undertaken in or near a water course. The ability for the Respondent to assess the environmental risks associated with completing the work is important and Respondents must provide confidence that their programme and methodology takes these risks into account and mitigates them accordingly. Health and safety and environmental records are also important to show the track record of the Respondent in monitoring and putting measures in place to apply lessons learned.
