Civil construction for municipalities and utilities, servicing water, wastewater and gas network infrastructure
The Utilities Division of Spiecapag specialises in the construction & maintenance of civil infrastructure projects across the water, wastewater and gas sectors, specialising in construction of water and wastewater pipelines (reticulated and trunk). As a complete pipeline and infrastructure Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for minor through to major capital infrastructure programs, we combine the knowledge, experience, support and maturity of a large pipeline construction business with the skills, systems and agility to deliver cost-effective outcomes, scaled for the Utilities sector.
This know-how in the construction of utility pipelines and infrastructure extends to associated structures, including amongst others:
• Pump stations
• Metering stations
• Control and storage facilities
• Maintenance chambers
• Emergency relief overflow structures
• Fire hydrants
• Flow meters
• Drainage structures.
Our philosophy is to build long-term relationships with the Utilities sector and the communities they serve, through our core values of honesty, reliability, competence, safety, transparency and collaboration.

Robertson – NSW
Wingecarribee Shire Council appointed us to construct an advanced sewer treatment facility that utilises Siemens membrane technology with the purpose of purifying all the wastewater generated by the residents and commercial businesses of the town of Robertson. This project involved the construction a central advanced waste water treatment system as well as storage and pump stations, a 14km pipeline and a new 49ML treated water storage dam. The treatment process will remove 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.
Flowerdale – NSW
Wagga Wagga City Council awarded us the Design and Construct contract for the Flowerdale Sewer Augmentation. The project consisted of the construction of a new 560mm OD sewer rising main and a 250mm treated water return line from the Pearson St pumping station to the Narrung St sewerage treatment plant, 2.8km away. The works included three new pumps in an existing wet well, new valve pits, new meter pits, intake valves to the existing wet wells, a new substation within the compound and refurbishment of the telemetry, SCADA and alarms to the pumping station.
Kangaroo Valley – NSW
Shoalhaven City Council appointed us for the Design & Construct Contract for all required facilities for the Kangaroo Valley Sewerage Scheme. This project required the installation of a reticulated sewage collection system using a pressure sewerage network including advanced membrane and biological treatment to enable the reclaimed water to be used for local irrigation use on pastures & for safe discharge into the Kangaroo River to meet Sydney Catchment Authorities Specifications.
Dungog – NSW
Appointed by Hunter Water Corporation, our scope was to design and construct the 30ML Dungog Clear Water Tank (CWT) and 7ML Anna Bay Reservoir using precast concrete panels 2.8m wide with 287mm wide cast-in-situ joints. The walls were stressed vertically and horizontally. Similarly, the floor was also cast-in-situ and post tensioned which led to cost savings of about $1 million in comparison to steel construction. This project allowed for the treatment of water prior to release into the mains which feed Maitland and parts of Newcastle.
