Strengthening of Bridge 5179
Bridge 5179 is a single span bridge covering 27 metres of Guises Creek on the Monaro Highway. Since its construction in 1989 there have been changes in bridge design standards and higher load capacity requirements. Strengthening of the bridge included fabrication and installation of welded steel beams bolted in situ between the existing girders, laterally restrained and mounted on fabricated steel bearing seating brackets.
The Googong Township is a 784ha Greenfield development located south of Queanbeyan which is intended to house an estimated 18,850 people in 6,200 dwellings. One of the goals of the development was to reduce typical water consumption by 60%, requiring the laying of 1.2kms of pipeline to a newly operational Water Treatment Plant.
West Basin Boardwalk Stage 1
The West Basin Boardwalk is positioned just above the lake water level in Acton providing a protected cove for recreational lake users with a place to berth watercraft and access the waterfront precinct. The design and construction of the 8.1m wide by 110m long cantilevered boardwalk involved working from both land and water and reengineering of the lake edge profile.
Dickson Bus Station
The Dickson Bus Station project provided numerous opportunities for the innovative team at Cord Civil to develop leading-edge engineering solutions to address a range of challenging issues. A variety of different surfaces including flexible pavements and full-depth rigid asphalt and concrete pavements were constructed over stabilised base works to fulfill the requirements of the project brief.
Thorsby Residential Estate Stage
Delivering a new suburb on time and under budget is an impressive feat and that’s exactly what Canberra Contractors did when they completed Stage Two of Throsby. The project involved innovative earthwork plans and introduced new topsoil improvement methods to promote landscape germination. Staging the necessary earthworks helped minimise dust and erosion.
