Land development of the site in Geelong
With the closure of the CSR Readymix quarry at Fyansford, Moltoni Corporation engaged Bonacci Group to provide structural engineering services that were necessary to transform the site into an environmentally sensitive boutique development. The development comprised of 600 residential lots, plus medium density housing and commercial areas. The site is bounded by the Geelong ring road, and the Moorabool River.
We developed an integrated strategy for the provision of water, waste water and stormwater infrastructure to the site, utilising local climate and demographic data. Bonacci Group is also exploring the feasibility of a local waste water treatment plant, and third pipe re-use, to avoid a major upgrade to the existing sewer system.
Bonacci Group developed a three-dimensional model to allow the amphitheatre style of the proposed development, and retention of some of the rock quarry escarpments. This allows the site to be easily visualised as the 3D earthworks modelling has allowed clear identification of differing ground conditions across the site.
These analyses are important for controlling and tracking the large quantities of filling required to remodel the site.
