Award Celebrates Arup’s ORAT Excellence
On Friday, 12 August, Arup was awarded top honours as an ABA100 Winner in the 2016 Australian Business Awards, taking out a prestigious accolade for its innovative Risk Management service.
The award recognises Arup’s successes in its approach to risk management, with the successful implementation of its holistic Operational Readiness, Activation and Transition (ORAT) services. ORAT manages the risks associated with opening new or upgraded complex facilities.
The industry award affirms Arup’s commitment to innovation and working with clients to achieve outstanding outcomes.
More exactly, this prestigious accolade relates to Arup’s involvement in the opening of Perth Airport’s AU$200m Terminal 1 Domestic. The new terminal transferred seamlessly into live operations with the application of Arup’s ORAT approach to risk management, providing assurance to stakeholders of the new facility’s readiness and ensuring the terminal operated successfully from day one.
“It’s hugely rewarding for Arup’s unique ORAT service to be recognised at this level, and it’s also a great acknowledgement of the calibre and effort of our team. We are incredibly proud to have such a commendation from the Australian Business Awards.”
– Kate West, Principal, Arup
Terminal 1 is a highly complex operational environment. Once the physical works for the terminal were completed, the new facilities still needed to become operationally ready.
Working closely with Perth Airport and their stakeholders, Arup applied a bespoke ORAT strategy to succeed in minimising risk for the migration of Virgin Australia into the new terminal. It ultimately provided the stakeholders and passengers with a seamless launch and no disruption to operations.
