  10. 10. Project Stages and Timing Demolition – 2 months Shoring and Excavation – 3+ months Stage 1 – 12 months Stage 2 – 10 months Overall Project Duration – 27+ months
  11. 11. Truck Routes Requirements of Demolition Statistics 1150 m3 of in-situ material translating to 2430 m3 of loose material to be removed from site Average of 7 truck cycles/day in peak period Total 270 truck loads @ 9m3/load 4 trucks – Week 1 20 trucks/week – Weeks 2-4 40-50 trucks/week – Weeks 5-9
  12. 12. Truck Routes Requirements of Shoring and Excavation Statistics • 16000 m3 of in-situ excavation material Approx 20 truck cycles per day, then removal of material would take approx 22 weeks Minimal truck traffic on Selwyn or Albion, main focus Greens Road 2200 truck loads required to remove loose material from the site Sewer Diversion and Temporary Access Construction adds an Additional 16 weeks to Construction
  13. 13. Truck Routes Requirements of Construction Statistics Minimal truck traffic on Selwyn or Albion, main focus Greens Road Construction Method: Electric crane proposed (over a diesel powered crane) to minimise noise disturbance Crane lifting points all from Greens Road Access Smaller Loads Transported through Basement to Materials Hoist Concrete Pumping all from Greens Road Access from Selwyn Street for those things that can’t be lifted by the crane and related to the establishment and dis- establishment of the crane itself
  14. 14. Site Access Through Building F Fully Investigated - Deemed Not Feasible for Demolition Reasons Design Development - Loading Dock now not being constructed Geotech Report - Additional excavation to create an underpass would be in rock Vehicle Movement – Turning Circes not Available Between Building F and Shoring of Building C North Access to Demolition Site – Blocked by Building C South Staging – Need to stage Development as not able to Decant functions from Building F – Need to keep in tact for Stage 1 Temporary Works – Major temporary works would be required significantly extending program and generating their own environmental impacts Craning Over Building F – Unable to establish crane base early, unable to create a structurally sound crane base, safety issues, approx. 3 month extension to project
  15. 15. Issues and Mitigating Strategies Issues Mitigating Strategies People Safety + Certified Traffic Controllers Managing All Traffic Movements + Footpath Management + Avoiding Craning over Occupied Buildings Noise + Reducing Council-Approved Operating Hours for Demolition Phase vs + Minimising Construction Duration + Selection of Electric Crane (for construction works) in lieu of Diesel Crane + Compliance with Council’s Noise Regulations Dust + Suitable Demolition Methodology + Dust Screens on Site Perimeter + Watering Down + Covered Truck Loads + Wash Bays for Trucks Leaving Site Vibration + Augered Piers in lieu of Hammered Piles + Suitable Demolition Methodology + Slow Truck Movement on Residential Streets + Dilapidation Reports for Surrounding Houses
  16. 16. Issues and Mitigating Strategies Issues Mitigating Strategies Trees + Protected in accordance with Council’s requirements + Level 5 Arborist appointed to ensure protection requirements are adhered to Parking + Selwyn Street - 3 spaces lost in Selwyn Street during Demolition Hours only for first few weeks + Spaces potentially lost at end of Napier Street + Albion Avenue - 1-2 spaces for during Demolition Hours only + Public Transport – Construction Staff and Students + Minimising Construction Zone in Greens Road Mud on Public Roads + Temporary Concrete and/or Timber Plank and/or Road Base Driveways + Grated Entrance Zone + High Pressure Water Cleaning of Truck Tyres Before Leaving Site + Street Sweeping if Required
