  • March 2014: Awarded Richmond Water Main Project

    Richmond Water Main

    Our Crew in North Queensland have been busy installing over 4km of 150 PVC water main through the township of Richmond.

    Due to the reactive nature of the soils with high clay content in the region the existing asbestos cement main is becoming too brittle to cope with the high level of ground movement. Subsequently Offaly Civil Engineering have been contracted to replace these mains to address this issue & cope with higher demand placed on the system once a new water treatment plant has been installed.

    Since commencing works on site, Offaly Civil Engineering has been heavily involved with Richmond Council in the design process to determine the appropriate depths & locations of new services, we have also helped to ensure local businesses & residents are not without water for an extended period of time when cut-over works are taking place.

    Richmond Shire Council have recently given the work order for a further section of the towns water supply network to be upgraded, this is a testament to our ground crews performance & strong relationship with a valued client.
