Waterbank INFRASTRUCTURE and public domain
January 2017 – Ongoing
The Waterbank project is located in East Perth on the edge of the Perth city centre and the Swan River. The site will be developed over the next ten years and will include residential, commercial and retail developments as well as public realm, green spaces, wetlands, riverfront promenades, a town square and the Hay Street pier.
Lendlease has been awarded the development of Waterbank in close collaboration with the WA Government, the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority (MRA) and City of Perth.
Civcon were contracted by Lendlease in January 2017 to install the sewer system to feed the development site. The scope of works involved deep sewer construction, precast concrete access chambers, micro-tunnelling, installation of external reticulation, construction of temporary access roads and hardstands, construction of the Trinity Avenue diversion, earthworks, management of contaminated soil, and dewatering works.
The project team implemented material tracking and worked closely with sub-contractors and suppliers to maximise material sustainability and the recycling of construction material wherever possible. Environmental Management included the treatment of contaminated water as no water run off was allowed to enter the Swan River.
Civcon commenced Stage 2 in November 2018 for further site preparation and utility service installation on the development site. Works included excavation and installation of sewer pipes including micro-tunnelling for the sewer connection from the Waterbank site to the existing Water Corporation sewer main.
Reid highway extension rectification works

Bridge 57 Replacement
September 2015 – November 2015
Bridge 57, located in Wellard, WA, and carrying essential communication lanes, was destroyed by a fire in January 2015. Civcon were contracted by Water Corporation to remove the existing piles and abutments and to replace with a new box-culvert bride.
The scope of works included the demolition of the damaged bridge involving the removal of the remnant structure from the original bridge below the foundation level of the replacement structure. The bridge was located over the Peel Main Drain which required excavation for structural foundations, dewatering and digging to sound foundation.
Civcon worked together with specialist concrete and mobile dewatering subcontractors and constructed in-situ base slab and apron slab to support the box culvert section. Other works included in-situ wingwalls and headwalls, backfill and rock protection around the walls.
The new bridge 57 was successfully delivered within a short timeframe to support Water Corporation in providing its services to the public.
