Cedar Woods awards RJV new civil infrastructure contracts
One of WA’s leading developers of residential communities and long standing RJV client, Cedar Woods, has awarded RJV a suite of new civil infrastructure contracts in the Perth metro area.
The New Henley Brook Development
RJV has been contracted to undertake stage 1 works and external services for Cedar Woods new Henley Brook development.
The Henley Brook estate is a brownfields redevelopment of existing semi-rural lots within the Henley Brook vicinity. Stage 1 involves bulk earthworks and construction of all civil works for the first 38 lots. The external works involve the reconstruction and widening of Henley Street into a median separate dual carriageway road, and the upgrade of Andrea Drive. These enhancements encompass the installation of new high-voltage power lines along Henley Street and Andrea Drive, which will replace the current overhead power lines, and the installation of nearly 2200m of external sewer up to 7m deep in existing road reserves to connect into the proposed development sewer outfall. This involves dewatering of very deep sewer trenches in narrow road corridors, management of traffic and provision of access for existing residents and also the proposed micro tunnelling of the 300mm diameter external sewer across Dampier to Bunbury and Parmelia high-pressure natural gas pipeline corridors.
On the doorstep of the Swan Valley, Henley Brook is set to become another lifestyle community in Perth’s east. Works will commence in November.
Eglinton – Phase 2
Launching in 2023, Eglinton is set to be a bustling beach-side community in Perth’s north west. Having now completed the first stage of bulk earthworks awarded to us in late 2022, we are progressing the development into phase 2 of earthworks and stage 2 civil works.
This development is set to be the first of its kind in WA to feature a new private power microgrid system, a pioneering technology that could shape masterplanned communities in the future. The grid will utilitse power generated from the individual houses’ PV systems back into the development, effectively managing the sustainable power generated for the benefit of the residents and decreasing reliance on an external power feed. This is an exciting new approach to sustainable residential power demand and we’re looking forward to breaking ground on it.
Ariella – Stage 5
This final stage includes the construction of nearly 560m of lot retaining walls, 500m of sewer, 5200m2 of roads and 850m of stormwater systems. The works also encompass construction of the latest private open space area which includes nearly 380m of wall constructed to the drainage weir section and subsequent culvert spillway.
So far on the project trenching excavations works have been carried out typically through groundwater, requiring wellpoint dewatering and acid sulphate treatment of natural (in situ) soils and dewatering effluent. Our team has worked diligently and effectively during these processes to ensure everything is progressed to a high standard.
