Flood Recovery Works

Empire have been engaged to manage flood recovery works across 28 properties in NNSW, over a period of 6 months, under the Flood Recovery Program as part of the recent NSW Government funding commitment of $70M to repair, replace and build new homes.

The properties are in Ballina, Casino and Grafton and have been split into 3 packages of work between 2 contractors. Our engagement was to manage the delivery of the works up to the targeted defects free handover date. Services rendered included verification of all contractors’ pre-start requirements, chairing of various meetings and contract administration tasks. Client reporting was completed in the requested AHO format. 

Management of the delivery works was supplemented with six site visits which were scheduled to align with the program’s milestones and monthly PCG’s, but also to monitor progress on site against construction program.

The Challenges

To deliver housing maintenance and repair works as quickly and efficiently as possible to enable reoccupation by Aboriginal families. Ensuring flood resilient homes were developed with challenges ranging from the lack of trades in the region and the ability to provide temporary accommodation for tenants in remote locations and with tight project deadlines.

The Solutions

Effectively manage the scope changes and ensure variations were prioritised in order to keep the project on schedule and on budget.

The Outcomes

Empire are working closely with the contractor as the project deadline approaches, already having successfully handed over package 4 to the Aboriginal Housing Office.
