Adept meets drainage challenge

Adept Civil

The project is being led by Melbourne-based civil engineering company Adept Civil Group for clients Winslow, and the multinational company Fraser Property, based in Singapore.

The work so far has involved a number of unique challenges, including the protection and maintenance of a detailed rock wall at the work site.

Construction centres around the building of a 1200 mm drainage outfall pipe, using trenchless construction technologies in order to minimise the impact on the local area.

Adept has extensive experience in the area, having worked on a number of larger projects in the past. Recently the company was contracted to facilitate the relocation of sewer pipes beneath Melbourne’s CBD ahead of the city’s massive West Gate Tunnel Project. The relocation required boring 30 m, installing jacking pipe, and building manholes. This had to be completed before the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) involved in the project could begin.

Winslow’s involvement in the project occurs alongside a broad range of projects across the country, including development and construction of residential projects, as well as roads and land remediation.
