DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT

This development consisted of a significant expansion to the existing school, involving a number of single and double storey buildings, new playing courts and oval, car parking and student drop-off zones.

DESCRIPTION OF CIVIL SYSTEM

BG Civil undertook the Engineering design + documentation incorporating:

Bulk Earthworks,

Internal Road Works & Car Park,

Internal Sewer Reticulation,

External Intersection Modification.

SIGNIFICANT ASPECTS 

The development is located in a significant overland flow path. BG Civil created a plan to divert these flows around the proposed area of construction, removing any potentially avoidable wet day claims.

BG Civil was also able to devise a rainwater harvesting system which collected overland flow. The collected water is used to irrigate the oval, removing the need to rely solely on council water supplies and reducing ongoing costs.
