Projects: Water

Case Study 1

SA Water

SA Water active projects ranging from wastewater treatment plants, pump stations, dosing stations, in ground storages and tanks, PLC, SCADA, pipework upgrades and work surrounding desalination plants. 

CAPEX: Various |   DATES: 2018 – 2019   |   LOCATION: Adelaide, SA 

Capisce QS has an ongoing cost estimating role as part of SA Water Estimating team assisting SA Water estimators and engineers in developing costs for various types of projects at various stages. 

Capisce QS strives to build long lasting relationships with its clients. Through effective communication and reliable information, Capisce QS has built an ongoing relationship with SA Water, completing many cost estimates and asset valuations. This relationship has over time improved the knowledge, accuracy and importance of estimating within SA Water. 

Case Study 2

Happy Valley WTP Water Quality Improvements

The project looks at upgrading the Happy Valley water treatment plant to solve on going issues with aesthetics, taste and odour of the water.  Works involve modification of existing flocculation chambers, construction of ozone generator, BAC filter upgrade and installation of tertiary UV system. 

CAPEX: AUD 75M   |   DATES: 2018   |   LOCATION: Happy Valley, SA

Capisce QS provided a cost estimate on the design and construct of the water treatment plant, including preliminaries, civil works, mechanical works, electrical works, construction management, test and commissioning and design costs. 

Utilizing our extensive involvement in a vast range of Water projects through years of industry experience and knowledge, Capisce QS provided optioneering costs and assisted in a risk analysis for all options considered. Through creative thoughts and new ideas from all around the table it allowed us to make allowances for the unexpected and put contingency plans in place and provide independent cost 
related recommendations. 


Case Study 3

SIMEC Northern Magnetite Water & Power

Due to the power-hungry nature of mining the SIMEC northern magnetite mine requires large amounts of power and water supplies to operate the mine. The remote location of the mine means there is a number of different proposed plans for the supply of water and power. 

CAPEX: AUD 1B+   |   DATES: 2018   |   LOCATION: Adelaide, SA

Capisce QS provided GHD with cost estimates on power and water solutions for the anticipated processing plant at their mining operation in Northern South Australia. 

The provision of our high-level estimating service expanded across a number of options as the team sought to achieve the best value project solution. The outcome of this exercise reduced costs by millions across differing design solutions.
