UrbanGrid Australia has been a committed partner of NBN Co. since the inception of the NBN project in Western Australia and has worked on both greenfields and brownfields projects. The NBN is one of Australia's most significant infrastructure projects aiming to enable more online connectivity and interactivity to up to 93% of Australian homes, schools and businesses. The scope of works has included pipe installation, horizontal directional drilling, pit installation, asbestos management, traffic management, reinstatement and installation of optical fibre cable.

UrbanGrid Australia was contracted to install some 40kms of infrastructure as part of the 'Black Spot' network improvement. This first stage was initiated due to failing services and included a six month project which was delivered on-time and on-budget to strict milestones. The scope of works included horizontal directional drilling, reinstatement, pit installation, asbestos management, optical fibre cable laying and traffic management. This project was undertaken in varying locations around the metro region and included some key challenges such as rock and clay soil types as well as areas with a high water table, all requiring the mobilisation of specialist equipment to ensure all project targets and milestones were met. Overall project management with careful and accurate planning was paramount for success due to the high density of the areas and the majority of works being undertaken alongside and parallel to arterial roads and public transport.
Network Maintenance and UpgradeVarious
UrbanGrid Australia has been a consistent and reliable partner to various Telecommunications providers since 1998, contracting directly and through various contract management companies including ISGM, Theiss, Downer, Silcar, Service Stream, ABB and Skilled Communications. UrbanGrid Australia's long term relationships with these key providers has resulted in a thorough understanding of the processes and network requirements to ensure that network integrity is maintained at all times. The scope of works has included the installation of new mains conduits, manhole builds emergency faults, network damages, recoverable works, general maintenance activities, and various capital growth projects in both copper and optical fibre networks, within metropolitan and regional areas. Additional complimentary services provided have included project management, cable hauling, jointing and civil construction. UrbanGrid Australia has also been a trusted partner in undertaking significant works that have a cultural, heritage or community impact such as the St Georges Terrace Replacement project. This replacement project was undertaken in a highly congested area and completion was required within a strict timeframe to prepare for the G20 Summit events.
