Civil Infrastructure//< BACK
Roads & bridges
Ward is proud of the contribution it makes to enhance the experience of road users across the Greater Sydney road network. We know a key part of our role as an expert road and bridge builder is to improve the network experience.
We have a wealth of experience in the delivery of challenging roads and bridge infrastructure projects. Rated as R4/B2 under the National Prequalification System for Civil (Road and Bridge) Construction, Ward has been responsible for major highway works and intricate Sydney road intersection upgrades, playing an essential part in easing Sydney’s traffic congestion. In partnership with Ventia and AECOM, Ward also undertakes Special Projects and TAMP works as part of the Sydney Roads Asset Performance (SRAP) Contract for the Parklands Zone of NSW. This includes maintaining 849km of roads throughout regional NSW.
Ward’s capability covers initial investigation, design, construction and commissioning of road network and bridge infrastructure projects. We are experienced in a range of delivery models including design and construct, construct only and collaborative contracting.
Our in-house expertise in traffic management and the use of our remote traffic monitoring technology solutions allows us to optimise the time available for construction in consultation with the network operators. The capability offered by Ward Utilities in the location, mapping and adjustment of existing utilities provides optimum service to our clients by mitigating key risks. Our adoption of the latest traffic control technology and the innovative use of IOT applications, enhances the safety of our works while minimising disruption to road users.
Ward has decades of experience working on critical infrastructure works, both airside and landside, at Sydney Airport.
Our teams thrive when working in the unique environment that is Australia’s busiest international airport where on time delivery is imperative. Whether constructing airport pavements, relocating utilities, undertaking runway upgrades, constructing perimeter roads or performing landside civil infrastructure enabling works, Ward is renowned for its uncompromising approach to the delivery of high-quality works in a safe manner.
We are proud of our record at Sydney Airport and look forward to playing a key role in future airport development works.
The Ward ports team includes experts in the planning, design and construction of all aspects of port logistic facilities. This includes greenfield and brownfield container terminal works, intermodal terminals, off-dock facilities and associated environmental works.
Working within a live port environment is second nature to the Ward team. We have an innate understanding of how to integrate operations to minimise impacts on port performance while undertaking critical upgrade works.
Our in-house port delivery team includes key personnel involved in the planning and delivery of the Port Botany Expansion T3 project and Enfield Intermodal Terminal. Expert knowledge and understanding of heavy-duty pavement construction assists in the delivery of critical port infrastructure projects.
As an Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO), combined with extensive experience in the delivery of challenging infrastructure projects, Ward is a key player in rail infrastructure.
Undertaking complex civil infrastructure works within the rail corridor is a strength of the Ward team. Our strong emphasis on safety, strict process controls, in-house engineering resources and specialised equipment, places us in a unique position to play a key role in the development, maintenance and upgrade of both passenger and freight rail networks.
Ward is at home when working on the foreshore or waterfront. We enjoy the unique engineering challenges often presented by maritime infrastructure.
The 2018 Master Builders Association National Excellence Award winning Church Point project required Ward to push the existing alignment of McCarrs Creek Road out into Pittwater, to make room for the construction of a new twin deck carpark. Ward designed and constructed an innovative sheet piled sea wall anchored into the Bayview Sandstone and backfilled this with local, sustainably sourced engineering fill material. This permitted the realignment of the road in compliance with the stringent environmental approval conditions. Ward worked in close consultation with the client (Northern Beaches Council) and the local community aesthetics advisory committee. As a result, the final product provided an enhancement to the visual amenity of this beautiful foreshore.
Whether it’s design and construction of ocean stormwater outlets and coastal protection groynes, the restoration of the heritage sea walls, or the construction of new coastal protection structures, the Ward team provides innovative solutions and outstanding project results.
Water and wastewater
Ward’s team of experienced water and wastewater industry professionals have successfully completed water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, pump stations, stormwater and detention systems, major pipelines and underground services.
Our accreditation with Sydney Water means Ward can undertake the installation of water mains, sewer pipelines and supporting structures.
General civil & site enabling works
Ward is particularly skilled in the delivery of the challenging civil and infrastructure enabling works associated with major infrastructure developments. We manage issues relating to the community, environment, sustainability, heritage, utilities, contamination and safety. These are often challenges presented by the enabling works for major infrastructure projects.
Ward is proud of its contribution to the successful development of Sydney’s key infrastructure projects including Sydney Light Rail, Westconnex, Sydney Metro and Parramatta Light Rail. Working successfully within the detailed and exacting planning framework and delivering critical enabling works for these major projects to succeed, is where Ward excels.
