Summary of Involvement
Dreise Tucker ATOL Pty Ltd carried out the detailed design of temporary crane pads, piling pads, batter stabilisation and general temporary structures. In delivering the engineering, our team provided geotechnical, civil and structural engineering services.
Why Dreise Tucker ATOL?
Dreise Tucker ATOL was engaged by CMC due to previous engagements whereby we provided highly creative geotechnical/civil temporary works solutions that reduced construction costs and allowed for safe construction methodology. The engagement was further subject to our ability to react in a manner to turn designs around rapidly and effectively.
In designing the works, Dreise Tucker ATOL provided a design that could be incorporated into the permanent works, and also specified materials that were immediately available. The design considered embankment stability and, as such, allowed not to compromise the embankments whilst allowing the full functionality required for piling and crane operations.
