The business case and concept plan resulted in significant cost savings, protected the heritage of the site and avoided potentially lengthy heritage approvals.
Indec undertook a peer review and advised on the feasibility of the proposal to redevelop the Preston Tramway Workshops – the largest redevelopment of an operating heritage site undertaken in Australia at the time.
In the preliminary proposal review, Indec identified concerns. Revised business case and alternative concept plan were prepared and resulted in significant cost savings while protecting the heritage of the site and avoiding potentially lengthy heritage approvals. Indec also included an alternative design and construct procurement approach to ensure that the original deadlines for the completion of the redevelopment were maintained.
Following on the successful adoption of the business case and concept plan, Indec provided technical advisory and assurance services to the project, which was successfully completed prior to the delivery of the new E-class trams.
