Description

TPD were engaged by Sherwood Properties Pty Ltd to provide Planning, Civil Design and Project Management services for the 21 lot Carrington Gardens development in White Hills. The site was partially subject to flood inundation from the Bendigo Creek which was protected by an Environmental Significance Overlay.

A Reserve area fronting the Bendigo Creek was landscaped and gifted to Council to increase the amenity of the waterway and to also reduce possible impacts from residential development. Approximately 6,500 cubic metres of fill was brought onto the site to raise the existing surface levels almost 2.0 metres to be above the 1% AEP (1 in 100 year ARI) flood level in accordance with North Central Catchment Management Authorities (NCCMA) requirements. The bulk earthworks were coordinated with multiple Contractors and placed to Level 1 Compaction in accordance with the Australian Standards. The majority of the fill material was purposely sourced from another of our Clients nearby development under construction, Sylvan Retreat located only 550m away. The short truck haulage route and coordination of works led to substantial cost savings and environmental benefits through reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Design works completed by TPD for Carrington Gardens included; roads, stormwater drainage, water, sewer and building pad design for site cuts. In addition to coordination with landscape, gas, communications and power sub-consultants.

Civil Construction was managed by TPD which included; scheduling & tendering works, contract administration, construction auditing and obtaining sign-off from Council and other relevant authorities upon the successful completion of works.
