I highly recommend Successful Projects for their Project Superintendence services. Their indepth knowledge of contracts and strong project support team result in positive project outcomes. Their procurement advice and approach has resulted in cost savings and alignment of the project teams.

Red Cross Blood Service – Perth Processing Centre – Major Refurbishment
The Perth Red Cross Blood Service experienced significant increases in overall product throughput from changes to workflows and the introduction of new equipment. However, optimisation of work flows and processes from the introduction of lean manufacturing principles were yet to be applied and the layout was largely the result of the limitations. Successful Projects came in as the Project Manager and Project Superintendent for the staged refurbishment of the existing building at 290 Wellington St, Perth.
The objective is to align the control of blood collection, testing and dispatch services in Western Australia with the national Client brief and Therapeutic Goods Administration requirements. The role included extensive management of the interface of the works with a client that continued to occupy the building and provided a critical service to the Western Australian and National community. The building accommodates the functions of administration, collections, testing and processing of blood and blood products for the state of Western Australia.
Design Management, procurement and coordination of consultants, tendering of the works, award of contract, management and Superintendence of the works for each stage require an ongoing and dynamic commitment by the Successful Projects team.
Piara Waters Rossiter Pavilion
The Piara Waters (South) Rossiter Pavilion is a multi-purpose community facility featuring a main hall and clubroom with kitchens and serveries, a multi-purpose room, a meeting room, four change rooms, two universal toilets including a shower, BBQ and seating area together with a nature based playground and full size football/cricket field, spectator tiered seating and more than 100 parking bays.
Successful Projects were appointed Client’s Representative by the City of Armadale as Project Manager and Project Superintendent to deliver this major community project. We prepared the contract requirements for the procurement model (GMP and shared savings) and superintended the works from award of contract through to practical completion, including the defects liability period. We fulfilled the role to ensure the project was delivered in accordance with the contract. We assessed EOT claims, assessed variation claims, certified payments and managed the on-time delivery.
The project was completed to a quality level that won the award for 2018 Best Public Use Building at the Master Builders-Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards ($5-$10 million range) and the best Public Building at the Building Designers Association WA awards in 2019.
What is the difference between Superintendent’s Representative and Project Manager for the Principal?
The Superintendent’s Representative acts as agent for the Principal and ensures that requirements within the contracts are fulfilled and oversee construction quality while the Project Manager, represents the Principal or Client side, and works to ensure that the process of the project delivery goes smoothly and finishes successfully.
At Successful Projects, our Superintendents and Superintendent’s Representatives are specialised in construction projects providing expertise for Health, Construction and Engineering projects for Local, State and Federal Government agencies and private developers in Perth and WA.
