URBAN RENEWAL

 

Morphettville Stage 4 Urban Renewal

Client: Renewal SA
Construction Period: 26 Weeks
Value: $1,300,000

Project Scope: Renewal SA on behalf of the South Australian Housing Trust (SAHT) is redeveloping land comprising of older SAHT properties at Morphettville on an 11-hectare site off Hendrie Street bounded by Appleby Road (Sturt River), and Carlisle Avenue which includes Barham Avenue, Baker Avenue, Nilpena Avenue, and Nunyah Avenue.

Stage Four included bulk earthworks, retaining wall construction, fencing, stormwater drainage, construction of new road, sewer, water, common service installation, footpaths, kerb adjustments and kerb replacement.


Value added options: Careful staging of works occurred to ensure high risk activities were not constructed in winter i.e. exposed subgrade. This resulted in both a time and cost saving for the client.

 

Woodville West Stage 4 Urban Renewal

Client: Renewal SA
Construction Period: 28 Weeks
Value: $2,750,000

Project Scope: Construction of a 27-allotment, urban renewal land division at Woodville West, including 2 large super lots. The scope included bulk earthworks, engineered allotment filling, SA Water services (sewer and water), stormwater drainage, power and lighting including linking into all existing infrastructure, granular pavement construction, concrete kerbing and street scaping works. As part of the works an existing reserve was demolished and a brand-new reserve built in its place involving a large turf area, shelter, BBQ facilities, water fountain and a shared use pathway. Various soft and hard landscapes were installed throughout.


Value added options: Reserve works and civil works were undertaken at the same time to ensure the completion date was brought forward. This resulted in an early handover for the client.

 

Lovelock Drive, Noarlunga Downs - Residential Subdivision

Client: Quattro Built Pty Ltd
Construction Period: 36 Weeks
Value: $2,300,000

Project Scope: Construction of a 60-allotment land division on Lovelock Drive Noarlunga. Lovelock Drive is a busy thoroughfare from Noarlunga Downs to the Noarlunga Shopping Centre Precinct. The project scope includes bulk earthworks, engineered allotment filling, precast concrete retaining walls, fencing, sewer, water and electrical infrastructure, concrete kerbing, bitumen and stormwater drainage.

The western boundary of the site fronts DPTI rail corridor, therefore special permits and work procedures were required to be able to build the retaining walls and fencing on this boundary.

Value added options: The project required careful staging of works to allow the builder to commence construction whilst civil works were being completed. A childcare centre was construction by the builder on the northern end of the site, earthworks and pavements were completed to schedule to allow the critical opening date to proceed as planned.
Problem Solving: During the project a large diameter privately owned watermain was found to clash with new services to be constructed. Working closely with the client and SA Water we were able to overcome these issues to progress with works. South Adelaide Football Club are located adjacent the site. They have busy trade period throughout football season and particularly around Sept finals. Careful negotiations were conducted to allow minimal effect to their normal operations whilst still conducting site works safely.
