Specialist infrastructure, construction and services company, Whittens, has continued its successful year by winning another new contract in New South Wales.

The package is for the Major Concrete Structures Works at stage one of Sydney Water’s Lower South Creek Treatment (LSCT) Program, the Riverstone Waste Water Treatment Plant. The Lower South Creek Treatment Program is being managed in partnership with Sydney Water by a UGL Limited and WSP joint venture.

The scope of the project involves provision of formwork, reinforcement and concrete pouring (FRP) as required for the construction of a Biological Reactor, Biological Reactor Distribution Chamber, Secondary Flow Distribution, Secondary Clarifiers, three off RAS Pump Stations, Tertiary Flow Distribution Chamber, and Tertiary Clarifier.

Whittens has a strong history in the construction of similar water retaining structures nationwide and will complete the works by Christmas 2017.

This is the third major project Whittens has secured in NSW this calendar year.

Director Tyron Whitten said, "It’s an exciting time for Whittens, with three major projects in NSW, and with substantial works also taking place in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. With a strong pipeline of future projects Australia wide, our long-term planning and the exceptional performance of our project teams have really paid dividends."
