Riverside Development, Western Australia
2012 - Ongoing
Client: Broad Construction
Project: Riverside Development - East Perth
Job: Ground remediation monitoring
Through the redevelopment of East Perth and the riverside, the area will transform over the next decade into a mix of residential, commercial and public domains which capitalise on the unique setting to become a cosmopolitan waterfront community and tourist destination. The project will attract $2billion in investment and bring 7000 new residents into the area and attract another 6000 workers.
Vital to the project was is the instrumentation and continued monitoring of the site by itmsoil. Being next to the river, the causeway bridge, having a high water table and being on top of an abandoned refuse area there are many difficulties that came with large scale development. To overcome these problems a surcharge was used by Broad to consolidate the ground, coupled with 30 vibrating wire piezometers, 10 Inclinometer boreholes and 8 tiltsensors on the bridge. The piezometer readings are then compiled on itmsoil's ARGUS software for an easy-to-interpret graphical representation of data.
