Altona Beach Walls, Ramp & Footpath

D From Civil were awarded the structures package to the Altona Foreshore Upgrade by our client Maca Infrastructure. The project was aimed at protecting the foreshore from the damaging effects of climate change, whilst also providing improved accessibility to Altona beach for the local community.

The package included a new pedestrian ramp, vehicle ramp and sea walls, all being constructed whilst a temporary dam had been to retain the water from the bay. Given the location of the works, numerous risks were involved, and challenges were faced. However, meticulous planning and collaboration with the client allowed these to be completed safely and successfully.

Monash University

As part of the major accommodation upgrade for Monash University, Clayton campus, D Form Civil where awarded the contract to deliver the in-situ curved feature walls located within the external recreation zone of the student accommodation.

Some of the main challenges faced on the ground where delivering the complex designs with a distinct look and identity. To obtain the high standard concrete finish desired, this required high-level strategic planning of materials and resources.  The sequencing of production of prefabrication moulds before commencing works was instrumental in achieving the tight timeframe for this scope of work.

Deakin Uni

D From Civil won the contract to construct the feature wall as part of the Deakin University Campus Infrastructure upgrade, by longstanding client, MCS Concreting.

Challenges in the delivery of the project included the environmental risks that wind imposes when working at heights. D Form implemented precise planning and coordination in the initial stages of works to mitigate these risks on the ground at construction stage and allowed us to pre-empt a variety of bracing options. Moreover, it gave us the foresight to integrate PERI as a formwork system.

Our team showcased strong cooperation and collaboration both internally and, on the ground, when delivering this project.

The key success factor behind this project was precise planning and coordination. The sharp timeframe on completion and the rural geographical location posed some challenges on sourcing local materials and resources. Strong winds were also often a daily challenge for both manual handling and cranage operations. 

Our team exhibited strong co-operation with the client and other contractors on site when delivering the project.
