Bridge Point, Kingston, ACT
A high-end residential development, The Island of the Kingston Foreshore was geotechnically complex as a result of the structure being built on land reclaimed from Lake Burley Griffin.
Working on the Bridge Point project presented a range of challenges – the biggest being its unique water-based location, combined with deep alluvial soil that was loose and collapsed easily.
As a result, the developers needed to conduct all investigations of the subsurface conditions prior to commencement of construction. This was to ensure the integrity of the structure foundations remained intact.
We consulted on the project on an ongoing basis and provided:
- a geotechnical investigation of the site’s substructure to provide a detailed understanding of the site’s geology
- ongoing advice and consultation regarding the substructure, through to the construction process, and
- practical and economical solutions, via a footing system, that helped the client move forward with construction.
