Kigali is home to a million people but only 30% of households were connected to the city’s mains water network.
With connection rates increasing and urban development advancing rapidly, the city needed reliable, sustainable sources of supply plus improved wastewater management and treatment infrastructure.
While infrastructure needs were clear, the project had to be affordable and capable of delivering return on investment.
We set out to control costs by breaking the project up into clearly defined phases.
This involved our engineering, water management and infrastructure finance capabilities: we identified potential water sources, forecast demand and identified the optimum technical solutions for supply and sanitation.
Alongside this, we advised on procurement, drew up plans for stakeholder consultation, scoped the project and drew up specifications and contract documentation.
