Spiire was engaged by Austin Land to provide integrated consulting services to the 1100 lot master planned community of Austin Lara. Spiire’s civil and water engineers, landscape architects, surveyors, urban designers, planners and visual media artists are all working collaboratively as an integrated service offering to deliver this significant property development project. Minutes from the township of Lara and conveniently close to Geelong, Austin Lara is destined to become a vibrant new community in Melbourne’s west.
Our Civil Engineering team are working closely with Barwon Water in the delivery of critical infrastructure, including a sewer pump station and trunk water mains, to service the current and future development areas. Both assets require infrastructure to extend in excess of one kilometer from the Estate itself.
With a major constructed waterway and wetland, our water engineers have undertaken all 2D flood modelling and design working closely with our Landscape Architecture team. Spiire’s urban designers and landscape architects have master planned an extensive open space network that makes best use of the constructed waterway and wetland, existing high pressure gas easement and existing overhead transmission line reserve.
As well as undertaking all titling works, our Surveying team are also providing construction setout and machine control services to the civil contractors which, is one step closer to automating the engineering design in the field.
Given the relatively short delivery program for this project, together with the Estate’s proximity in relation to services, our Spiire’s key disciplines have been working in close collaboration and have been coordinating our works with downstream landowners and developers.
Our Visual Media team have also been assisting the client with the development of a 30 second animated video and 3D renders for marketing purposes and an Interactive touchscreen and three meter video wall for the sales office.
We look forward to continuing to partner with our client to deliver this exciting project for the future residents of Austin Lara.
