Benefits of engaging Public Works Advisory

Large capital works programs may be challenging for our clients, particularly where clients don’t have the structure and resources to manage them. Building capital development capability for short term programs is not the most efficient outcome for government agencies, which then have to wind back these resources at the end of the program or project. This is often seen as a distraction from core business.
Public Works Advisory resolves this issue by providing project management assurance advice when setting up your program of works or project, minimising extra pressure on in-house resources. We make the overall process, and the transition at the project’s completion, simpler.

Accredited for planning and delivery of capital works

PWA is accredited under the NSW Government Agency Accreditation Scheme for Construction to manage the planning and delivery phases of construction and capital works procurement.

Strong focus on safety

PWA’s Work Health and Safety Management System provides the foundation for our safety culture, which embraces safety leadership at all levels and integrates safety risk management into all activities. Our Lost Time Injury Frequency Ratio (LTIFR), an industry measure of safety performance on projects, ranged between 1.0 and 3.7 over the past ten years. This represents a safety record at least three times better than the construction industry average for the same period.

Managed risks

We place considerable emphasis on advising clients of their risks on projects, including the options and costs to manage these risks. Risks are identified, continually assessed and updated as projects progress and are regularly discussed and managed in consultation with clients. On major projects an updated risk register is included with monthly progress reports.

Government relationships and knowledge

Successful delivery of complex infrastructure projects relies on effective interaction with stakeholder and regulatory government agencies. PWA’s unique position within NSW Government enables us to bridge the gap between our clients and Government stakeholders to ensure necessary consultations and approvals are undertaken efficiently and effectively.

State-wide resources

Regional clients benefit from a state-wide network of offices enabling them to source expert personnel familiar with the conditions and construction industry issues in their area. This reduces servicing costs, facilitates improved stakeholder communications and enables a fast response to client needs, providing a single point of contact for all services.
