Project Details

The entry to a new residential estate presents the developer with opportunity to invite potential investors to stay in the area. It also distinguishes a development from adjacent areas. It was with some pride that Alder was selected to design and construct the entry structures of the Ormeau Ridge Estate for Stockland over the Pimpama River and it’s overflow.

In partnership with ADG Engineers, Alder managed a tight design and construct program with a budget to meet the Client’s strict requirements. Alder was also able to extend it’s site attendance by completing the entry road links tying the project from Upper Ormeau Road to the estate internal streets. The working relationship developed over many years with the Client’s consultants, Mortons Urban Solutions, ensured seamless co-ordination of works with other site contractors.

The bridges comprised 900 dia bored piers with abutment headwalls and mid-span headstocks, pre-cast planks transversely stressed and topped, finishing with stone pitched abutments and galvanised guardrails and handrails. The bridges were assessed and competently passed third party Main Roads L2 standards.
