Project Details

This project involved 8450m2 of car parks, entrance works and associated civil works and drainage to meet demand of the expansion of Griffith University – Gold Coast Campus.

An ongrade car park South of Smith Street was constructed for a greenfield site adjacent to the newly constructed campus lecture buildings and student accommodation. The existing ongrade car park on the campus grounds North of Smith Street adjacent to the existing multi-storey car park was demolished to construct a second multi-storey car park.

Completion was achieved by the critical milestone prior to students returning, which included 10 days of wet weather. This was achieved by revising construction methodology due to wet weather and mitigating risks due to further delay by programming and innovative site planning.

Work Undertaken

  • Due to the geographic and potential disruption to University workings, construction was undertaken in the holiday period with a strict deadline of completion prior to the students returning the following year
  • Demolition of existing ongrade car park and removal of underground civil works
  • Cut to fill excavation utilising on site materials
  • Civil drainage works to be retro fitted to existing network
  • Install 47 recycled rubber wheelstops
  • Full kerb traffic island and linemarking constructed
  • Pedestrian access for students and public around worksites
