STORMWATER DRAINAGE & EROSION CONTROL

Erosion Control: Stormwater run-off can be very destructive even from very small flows if it is not controlled correctly. Camco can construct solutions for all types of erosion remediation and prevention such as lime stabilisation, concrete headwall construction (in-situ and pre-cast), rock scour protection both on inverts and embankments, reno mattresses, jute matting, revegetation and regressing, bulk earthworks and minor reshaping of existing drainage lines. We have available a range of machinery that can access almost all areas and have even completed projects manually.

Stormwater Drainage: As a pre-fix to erosion control, Camco can also provide engineered drainage solutions for projects large and small. We have in-house skills in pipelaying (100mm diameter up to 2000mm diameter and reinforced concrete box culverts), drainage pit construction (in-situ and pre-cast), gross pollutant traps, oil separators, trade waste arrestors and flood valve installation. Projects can be very small or quite large and complex.

RETAINING WALLS, GABION BASKETS, MASONRY & STRUCTURAL CONCRETE

Retaining Walls & Gabion Baskets: Retaining structures come in many forms and provide many functions both structurally and aesthetically. Camco can provide an effective solution that meets either or both of these briefs. We have had extensive experience in all forms of retaining walls – concrete sleeper, mass-bloc, precast panel, in-situ concrete, masonry (core filled block and stone), moss rock and hardwood timber. We have also constructed many gabion baskets walls both as retaining structures and high quality finished feature walls.

 

Masonry: Overtime brickwork can deteriorate, become damaged and sometimes structurally unstable due to weathering and moisture attack. When mortar erodes and crumbles, it exposes the brickwork to such issues as damp penetration. Camco has the capabilities to repoint mortar joints, replace rusted lintel beams, replace damaged bricks and acid clean brickwork to restore it to its original experience. Likewise with stone, we have experience in stone mason remedial works and new builds.

WATER SENSITIVE URBAN DESIGN

Camco have become industry leaders in WSUD construction through on site “trial and error” and via its commitment to the Stormwater Institute of Australia. We remain advocates of the system and make proactive contributions to further constructability improvements. Over 10 years, we have evolved the method of construction to ensure a quality outcome is achieved. Many examples of such projects are listed below.
