Accredited land development consultants should be used to undertake engineering design, superintending and auditing of land development works.
Consultants or contractors planning land development engineering design, audit services and/or construction works within our service area must be accredited before work can start.
To be considered for accreditation with Western Water, consultants or contractors must demonstrate and maintain the necessary qualifications, expertise, management systems, works experience and capability to undertake the relevant services.
Accreditation for consultants and contractors is managed through the ARCUS accreditation management system.
On 1 July 2021, Western Water and City West Water will integrate to form a new water corporation - Greater Western Water.
Between now and 30 June 2021:
- Western Water will not enter new accreditation deeds
- Western Water will approve City West Water accredited contractors and consultants nominated by developers.
Once you're accredited
Once accredited, you will need to maintain your accreditation details within ARCUS. You’ll also be included on the list of accredited consultants and contractors that all developers in the Western Water area must use.
Western Water recognises that there will be a transition period following the introduction of ARCUS whilst contractors and consultants apply for accreditation and await approval. During this period Western Water will approve contractors and consultants nominated by developers on a project specific basis.
