New Windsor Road, Tiverton Road and Wolverton Street form an important district arterial route in Auckland. Road user demands and traffic in the corridor will increase significantly in the next few years. Stage 2 works (which commenced in June 2012) will involve a full corridor upgrade to provide a more efficient and safer four-lane route between State Highway 20 and Portage Road, New Lynn.
Resolve Group prepared Statement of Interest and Ability (SIA) documents for Auckland Transport (AT) for the Stage 2 Route Improvements. The SIA identified a short-list of suppliers considered best able to complete the project.
The AT evaluation team, which Resolve Group’s Nigel Griffith was part of, selected three contractors to provide tenders, then prepared Request for Tender documents, which included a Project Delivery Plan requirement. This allowed tenderers input into the optimisation of the design and the opportunity to submit alternative designs. Through this approach both tenderers and AT had greater certainty about what was to be tendered, project risks, and the consequent impact on traffic and stakeholders.
Resolve Group also provided ongoing management assistance to AT through the interactive tender period and the subsequent tender evaluation for the appointment of Downers as the successful contractor on this multi-million dollar project.
