‘One’ Palm Beach is an absolute beachfront site that is being developed by 5Point Projects on the Gold Coast. The unit development is designed with 17 apartments over 9-storey’s including the top floor being used exclusively for a penthouse. The design takes in panoramic views of the beach and hinterland with environmentally conscious construction including solar generation and storage.
5Point Projects contracted ASP Piling for the perimeter shoring and foundation piling as well as Australian Dewatering Systems for the dewatering on their project ‘One’ in Palm Beach.
The Foundation Piles were installed with our Soilmec SR40 rig. Contiguous Flight Auger piles were used with pile diameters varying between 600mm and 800mm according to client, engineering design specifications, and site-specific requirements with the corresponding steel reinforcing cages ensuring the structural viability. All tooling, grout pumps, mini-excavators, compressors and miscellaneous equipment was mobilised and provided by ASP Piling.
The sheet piling component of the project required ASP Piling to undertake the engineering, mobilisation and predrilling followed by the installation of the sheet piles. A combination of bracing and anchoring was used as required by site constraints and client design specifications. The sheet piling system gave 5Point projects the flexibility and cost effectiveness whilst maximising the site available to use throughout construction.
Australian Dewatering Systems installed an internal spear system and pumps for the dewatering of the site. With onsite water testing and bore log information we developed a Dewatering Management Plan (DMP) in conjunction with environmental consultants. A pH filtration and a sedimentation tank was needed according to the site-specific DMP to ensure the quality of the discharge water. Weekly compliance monitoring continues, ensuring all discharge water meets environmental guidelines throughout the build. Our systems are equipped with remote alarm systems which SMS and email our service technicians 24 hours a day.
