What we need:
The Otago Regional Council (ORC) currently maintains a number of floodbanks and associated structures (including rural bridges) across the Otago region. The Contour Channel is located on private land in the West Taieri Area. This contour channel and the adjacent flood bank form part of the flood protection controls for the Taieri River. This opportunity involves the reconstruction of approximately 2.4km of the Contour Channel floodbank and the demolition and replacement of three rural bridges that cross the channel and floodbanks including forming the bridge approaches, to align with the design flood levels. The ORC plan to complete this work prior to April 2024. This project is located on operational dairy farms and involves work on flood protection infrastructure that is critical in protecting high value farmland, property, and strategic assets from flood hazard. The work will require careful planning and coordination to meet the needs of the client and landowners in minimising adverse effects on the farming operations and maintaining effective flood protection measure over the duration of the works

What we don’t want:
We do not want tenders that cannot meet the deadline of April 2024 for the completion of the physical work. We also do not want Tenders that have not satisfactorily assessed and mitigated the access and construction risks involved with a project of this nature (with particular consideration to flood protection and farming operations).

What’s important to us:
Respondents will require proven experience and skills in delivering successful civil and structural construction projects that have required work to be undertaken in or near a water course. The ability for the Respondent to assess the environmental risks associated with completing the work is important and Respondents must provide confidence that their programme and methodology takes these risks into account and mitigates them accordingly. Health and safety and environmental records are also important to show the track record of the Respondent in monitoring and putting measures in place to apply lessons learned.
