Carried out over 2 stages; Jacksco were engaged to undertake the initial site works which consisted of considerable ground improvement and change of methodology soon after being awarded the contract. Due to a high water table and unstable ground a granular engineered hard fill was recommended adding considerable cost to the civil budget for the client. Jacksco worked closely with the client and consultants to re-evaluate projects foundation design omitting over $800,000 dollars in piling enabling the project to successfully continue. During this stage of the project Jacksco re-laid a live arterial storm water truck line as well as public waste water lines and manholes. Due to the intensive build proposed for the site private drainage and service were also installed to help save time and potential undermining of foundations later in the project.
Stage 2 Jacksco returned to site to complete the hard landscaping package.
