This paper summarises the learnings on the implementation of a sustainability performance measuring tool, namely the Infrastructure Sustainability Rating Scheme, which was applied during the Rookwood Weir Project. The paper provides an overview of the Rating Scheme and, by using the Rookwood Weir Project as a case study, discuss the benefits, challenges and lessons learnt from implementing this tool. The principal conclusions include a summary of the benefits, challenges and lessons learned framed around how these tools can drive innovative solutions, which do not necessarily cost additional money. It discusses the long-term benefits to the community and the optimised environmental and societal outcomes that can be achieved.
