Design services for the road were provided by a multi-disciplined project team, located on site. Part of the design process included verification by engineers who were not involved in the design.
Robin was engaged as part of a team of independent reviewers. His scope was to provide independent verification for drainage aspects of the project. This involved:
- A site visit;
- Review of drainage aspects of work packages as they became available;
- Cross-checks and testing of design principals; and
- Reporting into the projects design assurance system.
The result was confidence by the project team that designs had been comprehensively verified.
