+ PROJECT GREGORY HILLS INDUSTRIAL ESTATE
+ BUSINESS UNIT(S) CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
+ CLIENT STOCKLAND
+ OFFICE SYDNEY
Delivery of a commercial industrial development for Stockland including demolition, extensive remediation, bulk earthworks in rock, civil works inclusive of frontage upgrade to live road, installation and commissioning of services to lots.
Orion Consulting was engaged by Stockland to provide Contract Administration services for the demolition, remediation and construction phases of the project.
A neighbouring resident situated in the centre of the site extent provided challenges tie into existing levels. Fencing and retaining wall construction and backfilling needed to be undertaken with minimal disturbance to vegetation and the existing property.
A tight program to completion with an increasing remediation scope pushed the project team to look for ways to accelerate delivery.
Lack of material supply due to shipping issues and COVID delays meant that critical activities were at risk.
Orion Consulting partnered with Stockland to satisfy the neighbouring resident’s needs and discuss works and current progress. Consistent communication was provided to alleviate stress and worry for the resident.
Additional resourcing and staging of large works area were initiated with the contractor to accommodate increased workers. Installation of services was undertaken out of sequence to speed up program. Consistent follow-up of remediation test results was required to speed up the validation process.
Alternate materials were suggested, investigated and approved. These were available early and minimised delays to the program.
Orion Consulting were able to manage the many and varying challenges of the project through effective communication and consistent monitoring. Multiple inspections were undertaken during the completion and handover stage to ensure the project was delivered to the highest standard. Additional management was provided to minimise the impact of COVID restrictions to the completion of works.
