In late December 2021, WSP was awarded the Independent Certification roles for both the Landside Civil and Building Works Contract (won by Seymour Whyte and BMD) and the Enterprise Technology Contract (won by DXC Technology). These two new wins means WSP is now delivering Independent Certification services for all the major Design and Construction packages at Western Sydney Airport.
The contract for the Landside Civil and Building Works package includes earthworks, stormwater drainage, road network, footpath and cycle path networks, ground transport operation facilities, car parks, sitewide systems, utilities, airport control, maintenance buildings, various ancillary buildings and infrastructure services. The Enterprise Technology Contract provides the network infrastructure and systems integration services to enable Western Sydney International to operate as a SMART airport.
As Independent Certifier, our core function is to provide assurance to Western Sydney Airport that the design and construction of the works are safe, provide value for money and lasting service to the community.
Western Sydney International will be the catalyst for unprecedented growth within the Western Parkland City over the coming decades, providing much-needed aviation capacity to meet the growing demand within the Sydney basin and improving flight accessibility for people in Western Sydney.
Mark Boone, Aviation Lead says “This is an exciting opportunity to continue our involvement with this historic project as well as contributing to making Greater Sydney Future Ready™ by providing critical connections for the community and being a gateway for international travel.
“We’re proud of the contribution that our WSP colleagues in New Zealand, Canada and the UK have made to the project thus far. The Australian-based project team has done an exemplary job of leveraging global knowledge, skills and best practices in a seamless and collaborative manner.
“Our prime focus for this phase of the Independent Certifier role will be to continually build confidence in outcomes and timely deliverables for the next phase of the project. Our project leadership will continue to foster a team-based approach, ensuring open dialogue, collaboration and meaningful communication.”
Western Sydney International is set to open in late 2026 catering for up to 10 million passengers annually.
