The WTIA has been awarded a contract for provision of technical review and independent welding inspection on behalf of Main Roads WA for the fabrication of the Swan River pedestrian bridge. The contract was awarded following a competitive tender process.
The scope included:
The bridge designer was an International based company; substantial communication was required to ensure specification requirements and drawings were acceptable to the client requirements and that these were clear to the fabricator.
The South Australian Government, with the Industry Participation Advocate, has recently introduced two initiatives to assist the Local industry. With one scheme for the certification and upskilling of Local fabricators (Capability Development), and a Surveillance Grant to ensure SA Government funded projects meet the quality benchmark criterion (Surveillance Activities), two separate competitive tenders have been initiated.
WTIA has been selected as preferred partner in both tenders, thanks to the attractive commercial offer and its expertise in Company certification, Companies skill gap analysis and welding supervision, Engineering and inspection training, Welding engineering and Advisory knowledge.
