Eoin has held roles with John Holland and Monadelphous and worked on projects across Australia.
Eoin gave an overview of SunWater and the progress of the Rookwood Weir Project which is intended to increase the storage capacity of assets on the Fitzroy River.
Following the expression of interest process, tender evaluation selection criteria is:
- 60% for price, proposed team, program, methodology, etc.
- 20% for QPP (Queensland procurement policy)
- 20% for local benefits.
In addition, a local benefits test and local benefits selection criteria score will also consider other factors including:
- Benefits of hiring local workforce
- Using local business in their supply chain
- Stimulating local employment
- Engaging local business contractors
- Opportunities for apprentices and trainees.
A key point for industry to be aware of is that 15% of total construction hours are to be undertaken by apprentices and/or trainees or workforce training.
Eoin provided significant information on project scope, procurement details, construction plan and subcontractor packages.
