Civil Consult were engaged to undertake a number of engineering services at a new development on the north coast, including a geotech investigation for the purpose of a DA submission.
The development consisted of a caretaker cottage and cabins, and was situated in beautiful area of the North Coast. Included in the brief was the requirement for bulk earthworks design and the design of a fill platform the new caretaker cottage to be founded on..
Civil Consult provided:
a geoetchnical site classification (soil test),
civil engineering bulk earthworks design
3D terrain modelling to determine the most efficient use of the cut to fill platform across the site
drawings and section of the development for DA approval
3D modelling was used effectively with a final pad being designed around the requirement to have neither an excess of cut or fill.
The NSW Planning Department approved the rezoning of 255 hectares of land which will allow for the creation of a new suburb in North Lismore.
For a development 15 years in the making this will be a milestone for the future use of Lismore. The new development will put the focus back on into our business centre, especially the CBD as the development is so close. It will reinvigorate North Lismore, with the rezoning ultimately allowing for 1300 residential lots, with 1500 new dwellings housing around 3600 people.
Council has already adopted a Development Control Plan and Section 94 Contributions Plan which means developers can lodge their DAs immediately. The Winten Group will lodge a DA for the 450 fist house immediately.
