“Using an enterprise risk management (ERM) model was an ideal way to gain visibility of risk and opportunity that each individual project carries as well as having the capability to summarise those risk and opportunity items across the entire portfolio of the Northern Gateway Alliance and Active Risk Manager has been integral in that ERM process.”
— Tim Davis, Project Optimisation, Northern Gateway Alliance.
The Northern Gateway Alliance (NGA) was formed in March 2004 and is comprised of eight organisations; the New Zealand Transport Agency, Leighton Contractors, Fulton Hogan, URS New Zealand, Tonkin & Taylor, Boffa Miskell, United Group and VSL. The Alliance is responsible for the design and build of the northern motorway expansion between Orewa and Puhoi, known as the Northern Gateway Toll Road in New Zealand. The road passes through a diverse landscape containing steep topography, large tracts of native bush, streams, estuaries and areas of pastoral farmland.
As at August 2008 the 7.5K motorway was around 85% complete. The NGA structure is similar to that of any enterprise, it has four sub projects under the NGA umbrella. These are earthworks, structures, tunnels and general. Each of these four sub projects are split again into zones such as bridges, tunnels, packages of work etc. There are also sub projects under Structures and Tunnels.
