westconnexm5Edge Environment was seconded as Sustainability Advisor to the Leighton Samsung John Holland Joint Venture, which is responsible for designing and constructing the WestConnex 1B project. The project is required to achieve an ‘Excellent’ rating with the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia tool.

Edge provided a team that included a mix of technical skills covering climate change risk assessment, energy and water modelling, life cycle assessment and project management.

Implementing sustainability on the WestConnex project includes refining the overarching sustainability management plan for the design and construction stages, and facilitating the integration of sustainability across project delivery.

The 1B project will link the M4 in Parramatta to CityWest Link in Haberfield as part of the broader WestConnex Project.
