MGC Civil was engaged to deliver a full civil works package at the Grevillea Estate for Handle Property Group. The project comprised of 50 Green Title lots and 10 Survey Strata Lots.
MGC Civil undertook site clearance, which involved clearing the entirety of the site, bulk earthworks with 5,000m3 imported fill, sewer and water reticulation, stormwater drainage, common trench electrical, gas and communications. Full construction of all asphalt, concrete kerbing and footpaths and retaining walls.
As with the adjoining development to the immediate north (Golden Vines also constructed by MGC Civil) a key challenge for the MGC Civil team was the installation of 101m of sewer along Arthur Street at a depth of around 6m – 6.5m. Not only did the depth of the sewer present a challenge as it was within an existing road reserve, but this was coupled with a high water table at 2m below ground level and Coffee Rock at 2.5m. To meet this challenge the MGC Civil team installed the sewer by utilising slurry drill micro tunnelling.
