About the entity

At Aurecon, we value and respect that each person is unique, and so is their life outside of work – family, hobbies, sports, or volunteering. It’s these differences that fuel our creativity.

International design, engineering and advisory company Aurecon has been appointed by PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, to conduct a feasibility study and conceptual design of a new potable water service reservoir (PWSR) and relevant infrastructure in north-west Singapore.

The PWSR – a storage for treated drinking water – will have a minimum storage capacity of 60 million gallons with provision for expansion of another 20 million gallons in the future, making it potentially one of the largest potable water storage facilities in Singapore when completed. It is slated to meet increasing water demand in the northern and western regions of Singapore by helping to regulate supply against demand fluctuations and serving as a buffer to mitigate water supply disruptions.

As part of the contract, Aurecon will study, consult relevant authorities and stakeholders and compare the technical feasibility including layout, work areas, design of tanks, foundations, buildings and infrastructure to accommodate auxiliary services, and provide cost estimates for the proposed three options of the PWSR. In addition, Aurecon will also develop the construction methods, timeline, land requirements, as well as conduct a life cycle cost and cost benefit analysis to recommend the best option to pursue the development of the new PWSR.

Jean-Marc Girard, Chief Operations Officer, Asia who is currently leading Aurecon’s Singapore business expressed his delight in securing this win. He shared, “It is an honour to be collaborating again with PUB on another significant project. We are committed to extending our international expertise, especially in water infrastructure engineering and advisory, to help meet Singapore’s future water needs.”

Stephane Asselin, Chief Executive at Aurecon Asia added, “Having a valuable partner in PUB is an affirmation of how our environment and sustainability business in Asia continues to grow from strength to strength. I am excited about the possibilities that we can bring to life together and to contribute strategically to Singapore’s efforts to strengthen its water security.”

Aurecon has been instrumental in engineering resilient water infrastructure solutions globally. These include contributing its structural and geotechnical engineering skills to shape the Sha Tin Water Treatment Works in Hong Kong; being Sydney Water’s Planning Partner in 2019 for 10 years and designing an innovative wastewater approach that embraces a “circular economy” philosophy to redevelop the ageing Port Lincoln Wastewater Treatment Plant in South Australia. Beyond that, Aurecon was also appointed by PUB as consultant for two large-scale floating solar farms in Singapore last year, reinforcing its continued commitment to act with purpose for a more sustainable, liveable future.
