Spiire’s Civil Engineering, Electrical Design, Water Engineering, Surveying and Landscape Architecture teams were engaged by San Huberto Properties Pty Ltd to provide specialist integrated services for the design and delivery the 418 residential lot Conroy’s Green Estate.
This 37-hectare development is located just outside of the Ballarat’s CBD in thriving western growth corridor and includes 2.6 hectares of public open space that will be enhanced with landscape features and linked to the wetland area with shared footpaths to encourage residents to explore the open space areas.
Our Civil Engineering team were initially engaged to undertake a feasibility study and cost estimate for the development and are currently undertaking road and intersection design and are working closely with our water engineers to deliver detailed design of drainage, sewer, potable water reticulation, retention basins and Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD). Our Electrical Engineering team are also delivering the electrical masterplan in addition to electrical reticulation design.
WSUD will be complemented by landscaped elements designed by our in-house landscape architects who are also developing the landscape masterplan for the estate. The creative team will also be providing detailed design of streetscapes and public open space within the estate.
The project presents a number of challenges including large amounts of rock expected to be encountered and issues around sewer and drainage servicing that will see the need for a sewer pump station and rising main. It is anticipated that all rock encountered on site will be crushed for re-use on site to reduce environmental impacts of this development.
Our Surveying team are providing a range of services to assist in the design and construction of the development including feature and level survey, boundary re-establishment, sewer and water asset recording and semi-regular UAV drone flights over the development to monitor construction progress.
Preliminary survey, civil engineering, electrical and landscape works have commenced and it is anticipated that we will break ground in March 2021. The first project by local developer San Huberto Properties, the estate is due for completion in 2025.
