Water Corporation: Wooroloo Prison Farm
This project was part of the Waste water treatment plant upgrade works at the Wooroloo Prison Farm. DCL Contracting were awarded the contract to preform earthworks and in-situ concrete works for the construction of two new in-situ concrete waste water tanks.
The works undertaken by DCL included but not limited to the following:
– Raft Footings
– In-situ Sumps
– Radius Walls
– Subsoil Drainage
– Backfill and Compaction
MRWA: Hamilton Street Bridge Replacement
The old timber bridge was built 99 years ago and had a 5-tonne load limit. Replacing it with a modern concrete and steel structure will ensure it is suitable for all standard vehicles and provide upgraded shared path facilities. It will optimise the road network for local traffic access and pedestrian and cyclist facilities into the future.
– Providing two 3.5 metre traffic lanes, two 1.2 metre shoulder lanes, and pedestrian and cyclist paths on both sides.
– Improved sight distances and intersection layout at Hamilton Road and Railway Parade.
– Upgraded lighting, signage and drainage
DCL Contracting were engaged to complete the concrete works which includes but not limited to the following:
– 500m3 of Concrete
– 850m2 of Formwork
– 100 ton of Reinforcement
PTA: Bayswater Train Station Pedestrian Bridge
The Public Transport Authority (PTA) carried out upgrade works on the Principle Shared Path connection adjacent to the southern side of the existing Bayswater Train Station. DCL Contracting were awarded the contract to carry out works on the construction of a PSP bridge to span the existing underpass, which included the following elements:
– Concrete Footings
– Retaining Walls
– Concrete Abutments
– Installation of Precast Beams
– Installation of Parapets
– Concrete Slabs
The project site was located within a rail reserve with live traffic and high-voltage overhead power lines. Strict safety management parameters and effective pedestrian and vehicle interface management were required at all times.
Echelon Apartments: South Perth
This development of luxury apartments in South Perth involved DCL Contracting construction all formwork elements on the projects, comprising walls, columns, multi-level high rise suspended slabs and internal elevator and stair cores.
Built to the highest level of architectural finish attainable, DCL’s capabilities to deliver safe, quick, efficient and flawless turnarounds between upper floors has led to a natural acceleration of the program, allowing the builder to commence other trade packages in earnest, thus reducing preliminaries costs and expediting project delivery.
Our participation in this scheme again clearly demonstrates the capabilities of DCL across any form and finish of insitu concrete construction.
Talison Lithium Mine Processing Plant Facility
The expansion of the Talison mine site in Greenbushes was constructed to maximise the mining potential of the largest known lithium deposit in the world.
The project ran over nine months across ten different separable portions and required in excess of 100 operatives to meet the deadlines in delivering in-situ concrete construction to various slabs, pedestals, pits, sumps, bunkers, walls, suspended slabs and vaults comprising:
– 12,000 m3 of concrete
– 2,000 tonnes of reinforcing steel
– 20,000 m2 of formwork
– 5000 m2 of scaffolding
– 200,00 man hours (and no LTI’s)
Water Corp: Ellenbrook 80ML Supply Tank
This project involved the design and construction of a main water supply tank for the suburb of Ellenbrook. Built to a 100-year lifespan, the works entailed in-situ concrete construction of the following elements:
– Post-tensioned ring beam foundation
– 12m high in-situ stitch wall panel infills to precast elements
– Internal concrete plinths and columns
– Perimeter infill
– Load-in apron
– Overflow sump basin
– Sodium hydro-dosing pit
The 80 million litre capacity water storage tank supports projected growth in Ellenbrook and the growing northeast metropolitan corridor. The tank is located on Corporation land north of Gnangara Road, near the Hanson sand quarry. The new tank will ensure Ellenbrook’s water supply is not interrupted in the unlikely event of a leak or burst on the water main. It will also ensure consistent water pressure in the area.
MRWA North Link: Stage #1
DCL Contracting was part of the North Link Stage #1 project from inception to completion, undertaking the following construction activities across the two-year duration.
JHG Compound and Site Establishment
– CFA Noise Wall Footings
– Noise Wall Installations
– Insitu Retaining Wall Construction
– Site Cleaning and Emubobbing
– General Labour Supply
Our ongoing presence throughout the project clearly demonstrates the benefits of selecting DCL as a concrete construction and labour supply partner for major infrastructure projects in WA.
MRWA: Williams River Bridges Replacements
Based in regional Western Australia, this project involved the construction of two new replacement road bridges over the River Williams for Main Roads WA.
With formed abutments, wingwalls and piers (including headstocks), constructed from piled foundations, the bridge deck comprised a concrete topping slab on precast girder beams.
Additionally, a new weir was constructed along with insitu connecting approach slabs, dual use paths, bridge lighting and traffic barriers.
– Regional DCL Construction team.
– Both bridges constructed concurrently.
– Overall 5 month project duration.
– Delivered on time and within budget.
MRIA: Murdoch Drive Underpass
An extension of Murdoch Drive south from Farrington Road to connect with Roe Highway and Kwinana Freeway makes up the $100 million Murdoch Drive Connection project. DCL Contracting were awarded the contract to construct the in-situ reinforced concrete members of a trapezoidal underpass. Once the construction of the in-situ concrete was complete DCL Contracting assisted with the installation of the trapezoidal precast units to create a structure over which the main road alignment was built.
PTA: Aubin Grove Train Station
Aubin Grove Train Station and Russell Road Upgrade was awarded to Georgiou. Designed to cater for the growing communities in Perth’s southern suburbs, the interchange station was the first island rail platform to be built within a “live rail” environment in Western Australia. DCL Contracting Group were approached by Georgiou to carry out drainage and civil works on the project. DCL Contracting also supplied valuable labour and plant to assist Georgiou with the successful delivery of the project.
Kings Square: Tower KS1
John Holland was awarded a contract by CIMIC to construct a 5-Star Green Star Design and ‘As-Built’ rating, as well as deliver a 5-Star Energy Rating, which measures the actual energy efficiency performance of the building against the design commitments, after project occupancy.
DCL Contracting was engaged by John Holland to carry out the construction of a number of in-situ structural concrete columns which involved the installation of column formwork, reinforcement and the placement and compaction of the structural concrete. Following this DCL provide labour to assist JHG in reaching practical completion of the project.
PTA: Perth City Link
The $360 million Perth City Link rail project was delivered as an alliance consisting of the Public Transport Authority, John Holland and GHD. The scope involved sinking a 600-metre section of the Fremantle rail line to reconnect the CBD with Northbridge, a new pedestrian underpass connecting Perth and Perth Underground stations, and major upgrade works to Perth Station.
After the construction of the Perth City Link was complete DCL Contracting were engaged by John Holland to carry out track maintenance and upgrade works at the Perth Metro Train Station. These works were carried out during various shutdowns of the rail. As every minute counts when it comes to rail DCL Contracting understood the importance or completing the works on time and safely to ensure no delays to the train were encountered.
