GS 20 PRE-CONSTRUCTION SURVEY / AUDIT
GS 20.1
Reasons for Pre-Construction Survey / Audit
The restoration of roads, footpaths, driveways and private property is a major issue of customer
concern. Restoration is one of the factors that determine whether Sydney Water and the Delivery
Contractor leave a positive, as opposed to a neutral or negative legacy, in a community.
On completion of the works, the Delivery Contractor is required to restore to pre-construction condition
all areas disturbed by the Contractor’s construction activities, including public and private property,
under the Contract. Therefore it is in the Contractor’s and Sydney Water’s interests to accurately
determine and record the pre-construction condition of property which could be damaged or otherwise
subsequently affected during the progress of the Contract.
GS 20.2
Pre-Construction Audit
To ensure that restoration is undertaken to a condition as close as possible to the pre-construction
condition, the Delivery Contractor shall undertake a pre-construction survey of the area. The survey
should use both video and photographs and document the pre-construction condition of nearby public
and private property. This shall include but not be limited to any buildings, structures, areas used for
site facilities, access roads, haul routes, fences, retaining walls, garden beds, driveways, grass areas,
trees, BBQs, and other landscaping.
At the time of the pre-construction survey, the Delivery Contractor shall liaise with affected
landholders, lessees, customers and other affected persons to clarify the manner in which degraded
structures or sensitive sites will be restored.
At the time of the pre-construction survey, the Delivery Contractor shall also ascertain whether the
affected person intends to landscape their property prior to construction work commencing. This
situation is not expected to occur often. However, if this is the case, the Delivery Contractor shall
carry out an additional pre-construction survey of the area to ensure the current condition is accurately
recorded.
The Delivery Contractor shall undertake an internal dilapidation report on properties, which are
adjacent to major construction sites (eg. drill rig sites, excavations, etc) to ensure that the Delivery
Contractor and Sydney Water do not get falsely implicated for causing internal structural damage from
vibration, etc.
The inspection and survey of each property shall be carried out in the presence of Sydney Water and the
property owner/lessee.
The draft pre-construction survey report including photos and videos shall be provided to Sydney
Water prior commencement of the Works. (Pre-Construction Survey – Hold Point as per GS 04.6)
shall be circulated by the Delivery Contractor to Sydney Water’s representative and the property
owner for review and comment. At the very least, Sydney Water’s representative and the property
owner should review the draft.
If comment is received, the Delivery Contractor must then have the draft report amended and
recirculated as necessary (depending on the level and extent of comment received) for final review
and agreement on the changes.
Once agreement is reached that the final draft is a true and accurate record of the pre-construction
survey, the Delivery Contractor shall finalise the report and have two originals of the final report
prepared.
If the Delivery Contractor does not carry out a pre-construction survey in accordance with this Clause
GS-20, then the Delivery Contractor is liable to pay the full amount of any property damage claims.

GS 23 RESTORATION OF SITE
GS 23.1
Approach to Restoration
If any property is damaged by work under the Works Package Contract, the Delivery Contractor shall
ensure that the affected property is restored at the Delivery Contractor’s cost.
The Delivery Contractor shall start restoration as soon as practicable after completion of construction
works and advise Sydney Water’s affected customers and other affected persons how long the
restoration process is expected to take.
At the completion of restoration, the Delivery Contractor shall contact Sydney Water. Sydney Water
shall determine the adequacy of restoration and then issue a notice of completion to the relevant
affected person.
Where the customer or other affected person states that some aspects of restoration remain
incomplete, the Delivery Contractor shall be responsible for addressing the issue, including adequately
restoring the affected property and consulting the person. Consultation between the Delivery
Contractor and person shall be conducted with reference to pre-construction records (eg video,
photographs).
The Delivery Contractor shall determine the completion of restoration in conjunction with the customer
using pre-construction records.
GS 23.2
Maintaining Restored Land and Property
The Delivery Contractor shall maintain the restored land and property in the affected area for a period
of three months after completion of restoration. This shall include the replacement of plants which
have died, failed to thrive or have been damaged.
The Delivery Contractor shall develop a contingency plan to maintain restored land in the event of
extreme weather conditions (e.g. drought, severe wet weather or flooding, strong winds, etc.). The
Delivery Contractor shall be responsible for implementing the contingency plan and maintaining the
restored area. Where the area is restored following an incident (e.g. flooding or wind damage), the
Delivery Contractor shall maintain the restored area for a period of three months after completion of
restoration.
Notwithstanding the time prescribed by clause 65 of the Works Package Contract, Sydney Water may not
issue the Final Payment Certificate until fourteen days after the receipt of the Certificate of Restoration.

Recycled and reused materials
Any recycled and reused building materials used in the Works (such as landscaping, backfilling, road

environment as defined in the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation and the Protection of the
Environment Operations (Waste) Regulation. Carcinogenic substances such as asbestos or asbestos

recovery exemptions as documented by The Office of Environment and Heritage. Prior to its use at
any sites, the Delivery Contractor shall provide a detailed description of the composition and origin of
the recycled material for acceptance by Sydney Water at least 7 days prior to delivery to the site.
GS 26.3
Records
The Delivery Contractor must ensure to keep detailed records of the quantity of recycled aggregate
supplied and either the contractor’s name and address or the registration of the vehicle used to
transport the recycled aggregate. This information must be kept for a minimum period of three years.
Records shall be available for evaluation by Sydney Water at any time during the Works Package
Contract, and shall include all pertinent contractor and supplier records.
GC 26.4
Certification
Where recycled and reused materials are used in temporary or permanent Works, the Delivery
Contractor shall provide a certification from an independent asbestos assessor who is a current
member of the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists in the ‘asbestos’ category, or and/or
NATA accredited for asbestos fibre identification. The certification shall state that the material is free
from asbestos or asbestos containing material in either friable or bonded forms.
GS-27 CONDITIONS FOR COMPLETION
Further to clause 65 of the Works Package Contract, Completion shall not be deemed to have been

It aims to ensure that native wildlife of Australia are conserved in their natural habitats and able to continue to function within their ecosystems. or to maintain a wildlife corridor. stormwater drains or watercourses. Native environments in Australia are adapted to dry conditions and low-nutrient soils and as such development needs to ensure local conditions are maintained. ie manual operation only of equipment in bushland to minimise injury to wildlife and minimise bushland disturbance Stockpile stores or supplies away from waterways and bushland to prevent encroachment or potential loss of load Cover trenches to minimise risk of animals becoming trapped Collect native seed stock from area prior to clearing Revegetation of areas with native plants from local native seed stock Stockpile topsoil and weed-free native vegetation.
