The contract faces a range of challenges. Firstly is to construct TSTP in a limited footprint within the existing sewage treatment plant. Before any decommissioning and demolition works of the existing plant, the TSTP has to be built and commissioned satisfactorily.

Another challenge is that the incoming flow will soon reach the design capacity of the existing plant. The TSTP must be fast tracked and ready in place within 18 months from the starting date. In such a tight timeframe, it is vital for the project team including the Employer, Project Manager and the Contractor to build collaborative relations for implement the contract smoothly. The project team would also need to have a clear oversight of the risks and work closely for solutions in order to deliver the project successfully.


Transparent and co-operative exchange of information in all matters relating to the contract is important to embody the mutual trust and cooperation spirit in providing the works smoothly.
