The North East Link Project (NELP) is a 26km motorway being built in Melbourne with a scale and complexity creating significant challenges for the government. Working collaboratively with the NELP team, Capital Projects Advisory (now TSA) was engaged to provide constructability and cost estimating services.
Through design optimisation the team was able to help shape the project design by assessing the constructability of proposed solutions and addressing critical risks, resulting in value for money maximisation. This resulted in the provision of a constructability report to support the business case which was well received by NELP.
The team also provided procurement and contract management support to ensure cost-effective project development. Supporting the initial business case and providing revisions to the approved business case, as needed to reflect or support refinements and changes to the design.
Working closely, yet independently from the NELP team, our team was able to assist with the planning and development of processes, people and systems associated with the needs of the rapidly growing organisation.
