Client-Side Project Management

12 months



CFA’s Fiskville Training Campus was closed in 2015, following extensive investigation into the environmental contamination caused by fire fighting training. Demolition of the training area was completed in 2018, with the environmental rehabilitation works starting in 2019. SwitchCo Projects were appointed as CFA’s Program Manager for the Fiskville site, part way through the rehabilitation works. Environmental rehabilitation included extensive water treatment, earthworks, waste disposal and soil management area construction. The role included the oversight of CFA appointed contractors and consultants, project reporting, budget management and problem-solving


Timely delivery of the project was the key challenge for SwitchCo, given significant delays had put CFA at risk of missing the EPA Clean Up Notice due date. Our primary role was to ensure that all project parties were completing their roles in a timely manner, while facilitating resolution of any conflicts impacting progress on site. SwitchCo provided clear, unbiased decision making in a sensitive work environment involving multiple project parties.
