Details of Services Provided:
Civil/Structural Engineering Design Services for residential housing estate, including associated drainage, watermains, roads, earthworks, service diversions and foundations / sub-structures.
This project involved the development of previously terraced topography to provide a new residential development. The initial site development included a detailed cut and fill analysis to minimise earthwork costs and accommodation of buried services throughout the site.
The foundation design required a mixture of conventional strip footings and mini-piled decks to deal with the changes in levels of adequate bearing strata and requirement to significantly alter the original site topography to suit the development.
The design of the road geometry and alignments were developed to comply with the Design Manual for Urban Roads and Streets and encourage a high level of pedestrian permeability throughout the development.
