Our Victoria team has been demonstrating the Interflow behaviour of be your best by recently completing a challenging project in Melbourne for Greater Western Water.
This was the first upsizing project of a mid-sized sewer pipe the Southern team has delivered, with the team working seamlessly together right from the tendering stage, through to delivery, including support from other regions to achieve together.
The project consisted of upsizing four full-length sewer mains through pipebursting methods, allowing an increase from 225mm to 300mm diameters. The reinforced concrete host pipes were located approximately 4.5 meters deep, which required significant rock excavation.
The location of the project was situated within a bus zone of a busy commercial/residential area which required considerable customer engagement and competent, reliable execution.
Completing a team project first and overcoming location-specific challenges in the process, our Victoria team have done us proud in helping solve our customer’s problems.
