Coppabella Mining Accommodation

The Coppabella Coal Mine is an open-cut mine located in central Queensland with over 3,000 rooms of accommodation. Within the mining accommodation WS+P has designed a significant portion of the civil infrastructure including roads, car parking and approximately 200m of floodway reticulation from the eastern entry of site to the central facilities. This includes three (3) x DN900 pipes and a 6m wide swale for conveyance of the overland flow.

Link Road, Epsom

The development at Link Road incorporates retail, residential and open spaces. As a result of these developments adjustments to a number of Sydney Water assets has been required. The first of these is the deviation and reconstruction of a 2.8m wide by 1.2m brick wall, concrete base culvert. The second adjustment is the deviation of a DN300 sewer main to accommodate the proposed concrete box culvert.

First Avenue, Blacktown

This site, located on First Avenue in Blacktown, involves the development of a new 17 storey mixed use residential and commercial building. The building will utilise a combined rainwater and on-site detention (OSD) tank to capture and reuse all collected stormwater. A minimum of 80% of the total site area will be directed through the OSD system before discharging to the council system. The rainwater tank will be drawn from for non-potable uses in the commercial areas of the building such as toilet and urinal flushing. Water quality treatment devices have also been incorporated into the system to ensure the water being discharged meets council standards.

Burwood Grand

Significant Sydney Water assets on this project were encountered and modified including:

  • A DN225 sewer main which was deviated as Sydney Water major works,
  • A 1200mm Sewer within a tunnel, 2.7m high x 2.7m wide. Approval to build over the existing 1200mm sewer main within a tunnel approximately 10.7m deep was negotiated with Sydney Water. This work required surface vibration monitoring during excavation to a certain level to assess the condition of the sewer main and ensure no damage to the sewer.
  • Sewer vent shaft and sewer access chamber.  Both the shaft and chamber will be relocated during early works contract.
