Project Detail

The Saint John Safe Clean Drinking Water Project, Canada

The Saint John Safe Clean Drinking Water Project (SCDWP) includes the construction of a new drinking water facility, and improvements to the existing water transmission system, for the largest city in the province of New Brunswick. With a capacity of 75 million litres per day, it will supply clean water to the 70,000 inhabitants of Saint John.

With a project this complex, the engineering, management and organisation all needed to facilitate and speed-up implementation. The large number of companies participating in the project also makes information distribution and collaboration between teams liable to become more complicated.

The companies participating in the project are responsible for the final design of construction, civil works, supply of equipment, installation, testing and commissioning of the plant. More than 200 users have been working in think project!’s platform for this project- with thousands of documents uploaded.

In order to centralise the organisation of a project of this magnitude, the group formed by these companies implemented the Thinkproject platform.

The SCDWP Project was selected as the winner of the Silver Award for the Best Canadian PPP Project, and won the 2018 prize for ‘Best Project of the Year in 2018’ by the Water and Wastewater Association of Atlantic Canada.
