Projence worked with the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to review the operations of a facility responsible for pumping sand from the New South Wales side to the Queensland side of the Tweed River. The facility’s purpose is to sustain sand on the southern Gold Coast beaches and reduce slitting up of the Tweed River mouth. The facility operates under a commercial framework that will expire in the near future and the NSW Government wanted to develop an understanding of all defects. Projence was engaged to provide a detailed understanding of the facility and to ensure adequate safeguards and controls were in place to maintain ongoing success and sustainability of operations.
There was a possibility the incumbent contractor may have been reluctant to cooperate, however the Projence team were able to develop a positive working relationship with them, resulting in successful and professional workflow.
Projence completed the reviews and assessments on time providing practical advice to Government to support their future decision making.
