strategy

With Victoria’s $1.75 billion Rail Regional Revival (RRR) set to deliver connectivity improvements across the region, Downer’s Victorian rail division is experiencing a period of re-generation.

Downer engaged Struber to support the bidding process to win the $50 million Avon River Bridge Upgrade project, a key early package for RRR.

Struber embedded a dedicated bid writer within Downer to take its RFP bid submission from start to finish over three months. Struber facilitated workshops to set the bid direction, developed local content and social procurement plans, and undertook all graphic design to produce the submission.
