Creating the Future of Water for councils and communities

New Zealand and Australia’s leading pipeline infrastructure company, Interflow, has a vision that supports the growth of its people, fosters partnerships with its customers, and ensures the wellbeing of the communities it serves.

By helping local councils to create, renew and maintain robust pipeline infrastructure, the organisation is supporting the growing needs of local communities for generations to come.  

All-in-one Delivery Partner 

Servicing the needs of local councils, water authorities and pipeline infrastructure asset owners for 80+ years, Interflow has earned its position in the water industry by continually challenging the status quo. 

As an experienced Delivery Partner, the company provides end-to-end services for local councils and water authorities via its self-performed capabilities and network of trusted sub-contractors. From inception to completion, Interflow’s services encompass project planning, design, construction and maintenance across the water, wastewater, stormwater and culvert segments.  

Innovation lies at the core of Interflow’s service offering. From proactive asset management to emergency repairs, the company is dedicated to developing bespoke solutions that drill to the heart of its customers’ problems; robust, sustainable solutions that will service the growing needs of the community for generations to come.  

Interflow said that since the company’s inception in 1936, its people have taken a proactive approach to understanding its customers’ needs. 

From metropolitan water authorities to remote local councils, the company works closely with its customers to develop tailored solutions that work for its customers and the community. 

Effective and efficient asset management 

Interflow demonstrated a proclivity for innovation very early on. This was exemplified in the 90’s when the business pioneered trenchless pipeline rehabilitation. 

By saving the time and costs associated with excavation, trenchless technologies have quickly become the preferred construction methods of choice for local councils and water authorities across Australia and New Zealand. 

The company recognises that asset owners have moved towards ‘trenchless tech’. Dig and replace methods, particularly in urban areas, can be disruptive, impacting residents, commuters and the environment with dust, noise, and a hefty site footprint.  

Trenchless technology can minimise these impacts by reducing environmental disruption to a single point of entry, as well as minimise project time and costs.   

This presents valuable cost savings to local councils, who often look for the most efficient and effective ways to preserve their critical pipeline infrastructure, without compromising quality. 

Creating a healthy environment  

Just as councils expect quality solutions that will support the community for years to come, there is also a demand for solutions that are environmentally responsible.  

Throughout its history, Interflow’s people have worked in some of the most sensitive areas, each time going above and beyond to preserve and protect the working environment. 

Trenchless technology enables service providers such as Interflow to remain customer-focused and environmentally savvy by reducing the emissions and environmental risks associated with excavation.  

It is well established that trenchless pipeline construction methods also reduce air and noise pollution, a fact that benefits the surrounding ecosystems of wildlife and residents alike.  

Bringing the community along on the journey 

Beyond the delivery of projects and environmental management, Interflow has the capacity to expertly manage all community engagement aspects of a project.  

To keep the community connected and informed, open communication with residents is fundamental. This includes providing regular updates, seeking permission to enter private property, and, where appropriate, responding to residents’ concerns.  

Interflow strives to complete every project on time, within budget and without incident. This enables residents to go about their daily lives with the peace of mind that the water infrastructure running beneath their neighbourhoods is operating reliably.
