Greg Pritchard, General Manager Building + Interiors, Fletcher Construction - The Wiri Prison project

  1. 1. NZ INFRASTRUCTURE SUMMIT CASE STUDY – MEN’S PRISON AT WIRI PPP Greg Pritchard. General Manager APRIL 2014
  2. 2. Wiri fly-through
  3. 3. Men’s Correctional Facility at Wiri
  4. 4. Construction perspective  PPPs shift the focus from construction to end use  Fletcher is the design-builder contractor, delivering a facility that will allow the operator to meet its obligations. “Operator led”  Our client is the SPV – and there is agreement on what we have to deliver. The agreed documentation rules! No variations. •
  5. 5. The impact of a different focus  The construction process is documented in detail, with a rigorous testing regime. This can be seen as an administrative burden.  The independent reviewer can be seen negatively as a return to „Clerk of Works‟…  But we have greater control over programming and there is more clarity of detail at an early stage
  6. 6. Cell blocks
  7. 7. “Trust… but verify”  Relationships / Trust – perception that any change is motivated by wrong reasons.  So it is critical to gain Department of Corrections‟ confidence – for both SPV and contractor.  Relationships need to change / evolve: at bid phase (interactive meetings); financial close (legal / commercial terms); and construction (focus on how the facility will be operated)
  8. 8. Gate House
  9. 9. Triumphs / challenges of the project to date  No benefit from early completion but we are doing well against programme.  Commenced design pre-award – a punt that paid off.  „Operator-led design‟ – with a clear brief.  On site the day of Financial Close / contract award.  Design information ahead of requirements.(!)  Careful consideration of optimal staging based on previous experience with similar construction projects.  Early involvement of key sub trades during bid and on into the delivery phase.
  10. 10. “Enter, change, leave… and don’t come back”
  11. 11. Future Focus  Confidence by the Crown in the procurement process – “PPP‟s work in New Zealand”.  February 2015 Construction Complete  Even now the focus is changing firmly towards operations for both the SPV and the Department of Corrections… a real measure of success.
