Outram Watermain Upgrade

KB Contractors were the main contractor during the Outram Watermain Upgrade in 2015. This involved the design, supply and installation of pipe, which was installed using directional drilling. 

Throughout the project, extreme care was needed to avoid drilling near the current watermain and consequently a major unplanned shutdown. Connections to the existing main needed to be completed efficiently to minimise the length of shutdowns and KB Contractors ensured there was minimal disruption to the community at all times. 

Installation of the watermain was at times challenging due to the nature of the install which included a steep incline to the water reservoir. 


The project was a success coming in on budget with no unforeseen delays. KB Contractors Ltd proved themselves to be capable of managing the project to ensure interruptions to the community were minimised and the quality of the workmanship was good.

When construction challenges did arise, KB Contractors were proactive and worked in a collaborative manner to develop an effective solution.
