HOUSTON – (May 30, 2018) – John Holland and KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that their Joint Venture (JH-KBR JV) will continue delivering major water and sewerage projects for another three years after Melbourne Water confirmed it as a member of a new capital delivery framework.
The John Holland-KBR Joint Venture has already successfully delivered for Melbourne Water for the last four years.
"We are excited to continue to deliver innovative and high quality new assets and upgrades with Melbourne Water to ensure communities across Melbourne continue to enjoy high quality water supply and seamless sewerage removal and treatment," said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific.
"The opportunity to continue to work with Melbourne Water is a reflection of the quality of our previous water projects and commitment to enhance our culture to one in which safety is woven into our values and how we do work," said Trevor Hall, John Holland Executive General Manager Vic/SA/Tas & NZ.
A change in the delivery model involves JH-KBR JV working with exclusive delivery partners Interflow Pty Ltd, Delcon Civil Pty Ltd, J.H.L Civil Pty Ltd, Tycon 10 Pty Ltd, Jonoco Pty Ltd, Quality Site Welding Unit Trust, GID Electrical Contracting Pty Ltd, and Zinfra Pty Ltd.
"Our delivery partners have proven experience on water projects and we believe working side by side with them is the best way to deliver forward thinking and best value design and construction solutions," said Mr Hall.
The framework will be made up of two consortiums who will tender on individual Melbourne Water projects from sewer relining, treatment plant upgrades and water main upgrades.
