Overview

The contract required construction of a turnkey package which included installation of two pump stations and with overflow structures. Part of the project was to install a rising main sewer and gravity sewer to the Coogee beach Reserve as well. It required connecting the Coogee Beach Reserve toilet block and the Coogee Beach Reserve café block to the deep sewer connection point at the corner of Orsino Boulevard and Cockburn Road. Installation of gravity reticulation sewers were done over a 10 week period and complied with WA's Watercorp standards.

Scope of work included the following:

  • Work included the installation of two pump stations and a 1.5km pressure main.

  • It required directional drilling through rock and existing services

 

Safety

The project was completed incident free and without any impact on any existing services.

 

Project Challenges

  • The project was located in an environmentally sensitive area. There are up to 7,000 people visiting the area every weekend.

  • We would need to comply with all environmental requirements.

  • We would need to achieve all of the milestones that were set as hold points by the client in order for the program to progress and to complete the project within the set time frame.

 

Managing These Challenges

  • We implemented strict access control and safety management on the project site since it was in an area of high traffic and  high public volume.

  • Temporary fencing was installed around open trenches and heavy machines were barricaded off during works.
