Past pROJECTS

Our people have been involved in some of WA’s most iconic Civil Infrastructure Projects. Since its inception in 2012, Civcon has successfully delivered over 200 projects.

 

KING STREET ROAD AND PUBLIC DOMAIN

 

The King St Road and Public Domain project involves extending King Street from Perth City into Northbridge, as the Perth City Link Project’s first ‘link’ to reconnect the Perth CBD with Northbridge. The overall project will create a new urban precinct to deliver a range of world-class residential, commercial, retail and tourism facilities. Works include earthworks and pavement works, installation of services and stormwater drainage pits, pipes, kerbing, precast concrete walls and timber cladding, and landscaping.

 Due to the project’s high-profile project location, all works must be completed to the highest standards of finishing. Significant stakeholder engagement and community consultation activities are also required.

Wellington Street Stage 2B – South and Median Island and Associated Works

 
 
 
 
 
 

The significant stage planning conducted by Civcon to ensure safe pedestrian and stakeholder access was paramount to the project’s success, with several residences and business located adjacent to the work area. In consideration of pedestrians, the pavement was constructed in two halves; with one section of pavement being left for pedestrian movement until the first half of the new pavement was complete. Pedestrians were then moved onto the new pavement and the other half of the pavement was constructed. All works were completed with zero pedestrian closures or long-term traffic closures.

 

 

 

Wellington Street has played a significant role in the Perth City Link (PCL) Project, which will reconnect the CBD with Northbridge and create a new urban precinct with a range of world-class residential, commercial, retail and tourism facilities. The Wellington Street Stage 2B South and Median Island is one of the final components of the Perth City Link Project with works involving:

  • Installation of a traffic median at Wellington Street, in between Little Milligan Street and King Street and the traffic island at King Street Intersection;
  • Removal of existing concrete base and replacement with thick lift asphalt in the existing roadway
  • Widening of existing footpaths; and
  • Upgrading existing lighting in the southern half of Wellington Street, between King Street and William Street.
 The project was located in a complex environment with several residences and businesses located adjacent to the work area. Works were delivered under strict requirements to keep roads open for pedestrian and vehicular traffic at all times.

Fremantle Combined Services Project

 
 

The Fremantle Combined Services Project was one of the first projects in Australia to see two utility providers work collaboratively to concurrently renew their assets. The works involved the installation, testing and commissioning of the following services, including property connections as required:

  • 1,280m of DN250 PE 100 PN16 Water Mains;
  • 123m of DN180 PE 100 PN16 Water Mains;
  • 54m of DN125 PE 100 PN16 Water Mains; and
  • 1,135m of DN63 SDR17 PE Gas Mains;

Works were mainly undertaken using horizontal directional drilling with a portion of open cut as required. Civcon’s scope also included design and provision of all traffic management, reinstatement and stakeholder management services.

 The works were undertaken in some of the oldest areas of Perth which resulted in significant encounters of unknown artefacts, services and disused assets in the area, affecting the planned alignment of the works.

Hay Street Gas and Water Main Renewal

 

Following the Rokeby Road Combined Services Project, Water Corporation and ATCO Gas Australia again engaged Civcon to renew water mains and gas mains in a combined services project along Hay Street in West Perth

 The main challenge on this project was to find a suitable alignment whilst maintaining a series of access ways to the local businesses and residents.

The main challenge on this project was to find a suitable alignment whilst maintaining a series of access ways to the local businesses and residents.

 A common trench solution was decided upon within the vehicular traffic lane. A unique invention enabled trenchless installation of the water and gas mains in the location of driveways to maintain driveway access. An air extraction head unit was designed to allow airflow to cut and remove sand in reverse to allow a pipe to move forward in the ground without the need for excavation.
