Waikato Regional Council (WRC) has recently completed a project of standardising several components of WRC’s assets including pump stations and floodgates. We aim to achieve design consistency of our new assets across all zones in the Waikato and reduce design costs for our capital and maintenance projects.
A set of standard designs were put together which can be used to construct components or be incorporated into an overall asset design for bigger projects. This would mean we are able to save money by avoiding the redesign and draughting costs of the already existing components.
All drawings with a watermark stating ‘Concept Design’ are not construction ready and require further development during the detail design phase of the project.
Waikato Regional Council has no control over the documents that have been downloaded, therefore users are responsible for ensuring they have the latest version of the drawings.
The draft RITS v2 was sent out for comment to participating councils’ key staff contacts in late January. The response by the required date was minimal, and an extension of time resulted in only one further submission. We appreciate it is a complex and lengthy document to review. We have just received a key submission that will improve the output of this document and are now reviewing it. We will be in touch as soon as possible with the final draft. We thank you for your patience.
