A successful project is one that has met the client’s expectations, the needs of the community, and been delivered on schedule and managed within budget. Council, Consultants and Contractors all play an integral role in ensuring a successful project outcome. A system of communications and team involvement is essential to achieve success for all. So how do we build these strong relationships, particularly when each party faces different challenges and expectations?
City of Burnside are currently managing the construction phase of the Kensington Gardens Reserve revitalisation project. The project has faced various complexities throughout design to construction and has involved numerous stakeholders with differing needs.
Camco (SA) are the civil contractors currently undertaking the construction works, and have partnered with RAWsa and City of Burnside to actively achieve employment outcomes for Aboriginal People across the council’s boundaries. Council is working closely with Kaurna Traditional Owners to monitor the construction and to develop opportunities for Kaurna heritage recognition such as public art, cultural sites and signage.
The event will involve a site tour of Kensington Gardens Reserve to learn about the project, followed by a Q&A session with various presenters involved throughout the design and delivery of the upgrade, including:
- Chris Goold, Director – Camco SA
- Adam Latemore, Executive General Manager – RAW SA
- Brett Shuttleworth, Project Manager – City of Burnside
- Lyndon Slavin, Landscape Architect – Aspect
