Infrastructure NSW issued a Guidance Document for Commercial Principles following consultation with agencies and industry stakeholders.

The Guideline was prepared to support NSW Government agencies with resolving the impacts of the construction pause on the Government’s infrastructure program, and provided additional commercial principles and guidance to be adapted by delivery agencies on a case by case basis. It was also capable of being applied by State Owned Corporations and other tiers of government.

The document has been updated now that construction has resumed in parts of Greater Sydney.

The original and updated guidance documents are available on the Infrastructure NSW website.

Online webinar - Tuesday 13 July at 12:30 pm AEST presented by Dr Sean Brady

In the early afternoon of 15 March 2018, a partially constructed pedestrian bridge at the Florida International University collapsed. It fell 5.6 m to the highway below and crushed or partially crushed 8 vehicles. Five vehicle occupants died, as well as one worker who was on the bridge at the time of the failure.

This is the story of how all the protections we erect as an engineering and construction profession can be eroded, ignored and dismissed - the story of what happens when we forget why these protections were put there in the first place.
