Approvals and Relationships Manager, New Parallel Runway Project
Brisbane Airport Corp


15:40 Case Study: Brisbane’s Parallel Runway Project - Turning regulatory conditions into contractual adherence

  • Taking a prescriptive view of regulatory conditions in order to closely manage environmental risk
  • Creating a strong in-house client environmental team to monitor contract compliance
  • Ensuring cost-efficiency with contractors by adhering to a detailed budget

11:00 Workshop B: Strategies for managing out-sourced dredging contractors to reduce project lead-time

This workshop is for asset owners who don’t have the resources to run dredging projects in-house from start to finish and must out-source certain phases of the project, such as environmental assessment, engineering consultation or construction. By properly managing dredging contractors projects are more likely to be completed on time and with little monetary waste.

The workshop will cover:
  • Ensuring in-house management works closely with outsourced contractors to prevent miscommunication and non-compliance
  • Creating a detailed budget within contract conditions in order to guarantee cost-efficiency
  • Techniques for successfully choosing the right contractors during the employment phase
  • Resolving non-compliance quickly when it does occur to reduce repeat breaches in contract
