|Project:||Campbell Street Stormwater Pump Station|
|Role:||Project Management and Inspectoral Services|
|Duration:||December 2010-August 2011|
As part of the Townsville City Council’s infrastructure program, PDM undertook the upgrade and management of the Campbell Street Pump Station, converting it from a three to six mega litre capacity pipeline.
Works involved the incorporation of an in situ caisson; a retaining, watertight structure used to work on the foundations. The caisson was constructed such that the water could be pumped out, allowing the working environment to remain dry so excavation could be completed.
This project involved regular risk based assessment to control the works being conducted on site. As well as a strong technical knowledge to analyse civil projects, combined with the ability to modify the works and liaise via communication with the designers and sub-contractors that Council had engaged.
