Community & Infrastructure

communityinfrastructureGlascott Landscape & Civil has been involved in several major Community and Infrastructure projects. Some good example include the Moorebank Units Relocation in Sydney and Airport Link and Bruce Highway upgrades in Brisbane.

The $18m Moorebank Units Relocation (MUR) for Laing O’Rourke was the largest defence infrastructure project since WWII. The project comprised relocation of the School of Military Engineering to Holsworthy Barracks, as well as the establishment of a series of supporting precincts including an Entry Precinct (Chapel, Museum, DCS and DSO), a Combined Mess, Physical Fitness Complex (including a cricket/AFL oval, rugby and soccer fields) and the Holsworthy Barracks Training Precinct.

Work carried out by Glascott included:

  • Detailed excavation around new and existing services (requiring permits & non-destructive digging methods)
  • Large scale Native Mass planting & Turf areas consisting of over 2,100 established trees and 115,000m² of turf
  • Large scale Hydro seeding and associated preparation work to over 40,000m²
  • Decomposed Granite to over 4,000m² in and around building edges
  • Granite paving to pedestrian footpaths and driveways around the museum and chapel buildings
  • Restoration & revegetation work to bushland areas covering areas over 54,000m²
  • Construction & installation of specific material to Bio Retention Basins and Swales covering an area of 6,950m²
  • Supply & installation of an automatic drip irrigation system including a central control system

 

Airport Link is a tunnelled, motorway grade toll road in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. It connects the Brisbane CBD and the Clem Jones Tunnel to the East-West Arterial Road, which leads to the Brisbane Airport. The project involved 15km of tunnelling, including the road (6.7km of twin tunnels), busway tunnels and connecting ramps, as well as 25 bridges. It resulted in over 7km of new road and is officially Australia’s longest road tunnel.

The work carried included:

  • All hard and soft landscaping elements of the Toombul section
  • Construction of concrete footpaths
  • All turfing, mulching and planting of this section
  • Rockwork to culverts
  • Installation of furniture and playground equipment
  • Re-vegetation to the creek line

The Bruce Highway project involved a 61km upgrade and realignment of the Bruce Highway between Cooroy and Curra, including a bypass of Gympie. It was among Queensland’s highest priority road projects, designed to meet the strategic transport needs of the Sunshine Coast and Gympie regions well into the future. Glascott carried out all softscape work after the installation of the new road including:

  • Over 300,000 square metres of hydro mulch
  • 200,000 square metres of direct drilling
  • 50,000 square metres of turfing;
  • And the planting of 30,000 tube stock plants and jute
