Civil Work Packages - Saltwater Development - Townsville

Client: Matrix North Queensland

Role: Project Manager 

PDM was engaged by the Principal Contractor Matrix North Queensland Pty Ltd to provide Project Management experience for the civil infrastructure packages of this project. PDM provided a Principal Project Manager to manage the sub-contracted works in accordance with the contract that Matrix had developed.

The Saltwater development is a waterfront, multi-storey, multi-complex under construction at the Breakwater locality of Townsville City. This multi-dwelling complex built on reclaimed ocean land has approvals in place for approximately five hundred apartments and other homes, in addition to a five thousand square metre retail precinct with restaurants, and boutique outlets.

The facilities are to be provided in buildings of various heights, including a fifteen-level tower. The project involved the sub-contractor ‘winning’ fill material from within the site; and undertaking earthworks to incorporate the construction of infrastructure services including water, sewer, telecommunications, and drainage. 

Under the Development Application from Council, no material could be imported to site. PDM’s expertise provided Matrix with solutions to modify the design on site to accommodate the shortfall of available fill material. 

As a result of PDM’s involvement the project timeline was recovered to bring the civil works packages to completion within the nominated timeframes.
