AIMS - Replacement of Failed Section of Boat Ramp
Installation of New section of boat ramp, due to undermining and failure of existing boat ramp. CivilPlus completed the precast works at our Laydown area and then transported the planks to site. The existing boat ramp was saw cut and sections removed until sound concrete was located. The base was then prepared with aggregate, precast planks were placed, bolted together and then all in-fills grouted. Grouted ballast was used for the edge protection along the side of the boat ramp.
Aircraft Arrestor System Pit Rectification Works
Extensions to the existing Aircraft Arrestor pits to allow for new motor installations and for compliance of pits with current Australian Standards. The works also included refurbishment of pits including mechanical and electrical components which are currently being carried out by MVO and EMAK respectively.

Ertech is completing marine based gas pipe installation in the Northern Territory. The amphibious excavator is required to mulch mangrove, remove mangrove mud, trench mangrove mud and shape batters in mangrove mud to allow the pipeline installation.
ANZAC Park Pipeline Installation
The project required the installation of approx 100mtrs of 700 series Humes jacking pipes under the heritage and sacred site of ANZAC Park the Strand. Upon commencement of the tunneling and jacking an unknown sea wall was contacted approx 10mtrs into the bore, which required review and approvals prior to commencing open excavations to complete the remainder of the installation. A system of sheet piling and shore box installations where required to safely install the pipe within the sand geology during the open trench phases of the construction.
Aplins Weir Reconstruction
Why does Aplins Weir need refurbishing? Aplins Weir was first built in 1928 and does not meet current engineering standards. While there are no signs of failure at the moment, there is an increasing risk of failure in the future because of the age of the structure. The planned refurbishment will bring the weir wall up to current standards and improve its strength and stability.
Area J & K Hardstands
Upgrade of the hardstand pavement and entry modifications in AREA J & K. The upgrading included the removal of the hardstand pavement and construction of a new pavement in three parts. Part A - Hardstand consisted of a bound and unbound gravel pavement with a segmental pavers wearing course. This part was surrounded by concrete kerb that channeled the runoff into a humeceptor. Part B - Access included the construction of a new access into the compound with a unbound cement modified pavement with an asphalt wearing course. Part C - Hardstand consisted of modified pavement that joined Part B with Asphalt surface. This was kerbed & channeled to allow runoff to the humeceptor.

Townsville Hospital Sheet Piling
CivilPlus were required to complete multiple sheet pile driven retaining walls for the Townsville Hospital elevator shafts for the expansion of the emergency facility at Douglas. This was a design and construct project which was completed in early 2010. This required pre boring to depth prior to sheet piling to reduce vibration in the hospital surgical ward which required all stakeholders i.e. C+ / Thiess / Townsville Hospital Mgt /surgeons to work together to ensure patient care was paramount. Once the boring was complete the sheet piling was installed using the excavator and vibrating hammer to meet design. The excavation was then staged to allow for the installation of the required bracing to support the sheet pile and applied loads from the hospital footings.
