This residential development in Baldivis will ultimately comprise approximately 360 lots and various infrastructure upgrades.
Of these approximately 360 lots, 112 have been completed to date along with the upgrade of Pike Road. Also complete is the realignment of a Water Corporation sewer pressure main and Telstra assets.
The Bulk Earthworks design was undertaken to reduce fill importation requirements whilst reducing the potential to encounter shallow rock. Various interfacing issues pertain to the site including Western Power and existing residential landholdings.
JDSi has undertaken numerous construction cost estimates in order to determine appropriate project staging and the short to mid-term viability of release strategies based on market conditions and servicing efficiencies.
Public Open Space was positioned in consideration of existing significant trees and a road designed to locate a significant tuart tree within a landscaped road median. A Ground Penetrating Radar investigation for the tuart was implemented in collaboration with the project surveyor and arborist to determine root locations in 3D space and potential clashes with engineering services. This reduced the extent of services requiring installation by trenchless technologies.
JDSi undertook the earthworks, carpark, drainage and servicing design for the sales office in collaboration with the builder and landscape architect. Design of the lots and infrastructure adjacent to the sales office was undertaken in order to integrate the sales office with the infrastructure network to minimise future rework and avoid scarring of the red asphalt.
