Pensar engaged Struber to manage stakeholder engagement.
With adjacent landowners and school bus operators the most affected by construction impacts, Struber developed an engagement approach that focused on relationship building through one-on-one engagement. This also provided an opportunity to understand potential issues to be resolved and agree on the most effective communication methods during construction.
• Finalised engagement approach, with a one-on-one relationship focus
• Led initial one-on-one engagement with residents to establish relationships and trust, understand any issues from construction impacts and identify preferred contact approach during construction
• Emailed key stakeholders (schools, local businesses, motorists, residents, government representatives, and emergency services) to advise of the start of construction and project progress
• Managed Consultation Manager database
By engaging residents with a one-on-one relationship focus ahead of construction starting, the project team could discuss any concerns upfront and provide relevant and direct updates via SMS or email to keep residents informed as the project progressed.
There were no complaints received about the start of construction works and vegetation removal.
