Noosa Heads Residence

We are nearing competition on this residential basement. Based on the Noosa River, this job involved 147 L/m of Cantilevered Sheet Piling, Internal Bracing, Spear Point Dewatering and Groundwater Treatment.

This is the third property in this street ASP has successfully performed these works on.

Sinclair Apartments

One of our recent projects with Mosaic is Sinclair Apartments, located along a main arterial road in East Brisbane.

This project involves foundation piling, sheet piling (including ground anchors and deadman piles), together with a dewatering system and management plan.

Burleigh Heads Mowbray Park SLSC

This small project involves sheet piling for a unique shaped site. Extensions to this existing building are to accommodate extra storage, larger kitchen and outdoor dining area along with a new lap pool and terrace.

With a total of 60L/M this site is anchored and internally propped. We also are providing the dewatering services for this site.

Mackay NBN Tower

ASP Piling completed this five week job consisting of 58Lm of sheet piling, and dewatering services. Due to the location of the tower, 3 sides of the sheet piling were required to be 1m above ground for croc protection during construction.

Located adjacent to an environmentally sensitive wetland, on site dewatering & filtration was crucial to the success of this project.

Parkridge, Noosa Springs

The side of a sand dune is not the usual place to build on, but in October 2017 we started 180L/M sheet piling for Noosa’s newest estate, Parkridge. We commenced stage 2 of 134L/M of sheet piling in February 2019.

Stage 3 of this estate project commenced in August 2020 for 62L/M of sheet piling and anchoring.

Logan Hospital Car Park

This project involves establishing CFA Foundation piles for the new 8 level car park at.

Up until now, our foundation piling division has seen the traditional method of trimming piles using saws and jackhammers. Due to this we have been searching for a better, safer & more cost effect way to carry out these works. Trimming piles using a pile cropper required some changes to our designs and processes to adopt, but the results speak for themselves. Hazards Eliminated, risks reduced, production increased. 

A happier crew and a happier client always makes for a more successful project. Thanks to Jim from Australian Pile Croppers for the faith and time investment on the front end.  Looking forward to many successes in the future.

Residential Basement

10 meters.

Yes, that was the entire site width for this project. Surrounded by luxury homes, in a busy Gold Coast beachside street.

The project, 44L/M Contiguous Pile Walls for a single level residential basement was definitely a tight squeeze, but still executed brilliantly by our skilled team.

Midnight Apartments Braddon

ASP Piling NSW has been engaged by Geocon to carry out the design and construct of the retention system for Midnight Apartments, Braddon. The development consists of a 9-storey residential development, with three levels of underground basement car parking.

An anchored soldier piling solution was used on this project due to the ground conditions found in the geotechnical investigations. The stiff clay overlying weathered rock combined with the site being surrounded by roadways on three sides and a neighbouring 9-storey residential building with two levels of underground basement carparking made soldier piles the most effective option.

The soldier pile system for the project used 600mm diameter reinforced concrete piles. ASP Pilng NSW has installed approximately 320 lineal metres of soldier piles around the perimeter of the site. Once a suitable depth of excavation, shotcrete infill panels are constructed between the soldiers to prevent loss of soils between soldiers. Once excavation achieves the first row of anchor levels the ground anchors are installed. Location and orientation of the anchors are chosen to avoid any underground obstructions such as services or underground structures.

Once the ground anchors are properly installed excavation proceeded with subsequent geotechnical inspections, shotcrete and anchoring works carried out. This process will occur until final excavation is reached.

The ground anchors for this project are temporary in nature. Once the basement slabs are propping the soldier piles the anchors will be redundant and can be destressed. The maximum excavation depth on the site is 10 metres.

Cosmopolitan Cotton Tree

ASP Piling was contracted by Construction Control for the piling and dewatering of The Cosmopolitan in Cottontree at Maroochydore. The large parkland and waterfront site has a basement footprint that spreads two street frontages and adjoins the two towers being built. A total of 143 apartments will be spread over the two seven-storey residential towers.

We provided a range of options to our clients based on engineering, cost and site requirements and constraints. A combination of piling options was employed for the retention and foundation solutions, along with Australian Dewatering Systems site dewatering and environmental services.

The secant piling option was used for the section of basement perimeter with a 6-storey commercial building abutting the ‘Cosmopolitan’s’ boundary. Approximately 10-metre deep scant piles were installed with temporary anchoring. Sheet piling options were used for the remainder, a variety of depths and profiles being used based on basement requirements with the two towers having different basement depths. The sheet piles ranged from 6 metre sheets to over 10 metres long with the associated anchoring and removable whalers were used.

Foundation Piles were installed by ASP Foundation Piling across the site and for the crane base. Over 200 CFA piles were installed with our SF65 Soilmec piling rig.

Australian dewatering systems installed a perimeter spear system around the boundary of the site. The dewatering was installed and commissioned in a staged process as the site was excavated. A deep well system was installed to ensure the system would cope with the dewatering requirements as the basement level was excavated below the natural water table depth. In addition to the dewatering equipment, a filtration unit and sedimentation tank were needed and based on electricity availability a fuel cell and generator for a short period. Further, into the project, an Iron Remediation Tank was needed according to the levels indicated in the monitored discharge water. As always, the site had a dewatering management plan in place and compliance monitoring throughout the discharge process.
