We can offer services in geotechnical investigation and design, pavement design, geology, hydrogeology and ground engineering construction services.
Senversa can offer a seamless approach to projects that involve individual or combined geotechnical, environmental and hydrogeological issues including desktop and due diligence assessments, design and management of geotechnical investigations, in-situ testing, geotechnical laboratory testing and geotechnical modelling and design.
Geotechnical Assessment Services
Ground Engineering Construction Services
Groundwater and Hydrogeology Services
Senversa performed a geotechnical assessment to determine cliff stability and landslide risk at Mount Martha North (Balcombe Creek region) and prepared engineering designs for construction of a rock revetment.
Pipeline Project, Vic
The South West Loddon Pipeline is located west of Bendigo and expected to be completed mid-2019. The pipeline will deliver vital water to communities and provide security of water supply as well as economic benefits to the region. Senversa has provided geotechnical engineering services for multiple pump stations and storage sites including recommendations and advice on earthquake designs, foundation systems and wet wells, plus directional drilling information for rail crossings.
The State Netball and Hockey Centre in Parkville was built in 2001 as one of Australia’s premier sporting venues. Senversa completed a geotechnical and environmental site assessment to provide clarity around environmental impacts that may have affected the proposed development and any design constraints. The initial investigation supported Development Victoria’s business case, with subsequent investigations supplementing the requirements of the architect and construction company.
APAM Stage 2 Elevated Road, VIC
Melbourne Airport proposes to construct a series of elevated roads and pedestrian bridges to better connect an existing multi-level carpark with the airport terminals, which will facilitate movement of their customers to and from the airport. Senversa was engaged to provide both environmental and geotechnical advice to support project approvals and development of a conceptual design. A complex drilling program enabled a detailed understanding of the geotechnical and environmental conditions. Key considerations for the field program included working in highly trafficked areas with highly variable geotechnical conditions. Weekly schedule updates were provided to Melbourne Airport’s project management team which outlined works completed, upcoming access issues and potential sticking points which would require Melbourne Airports input. Melbourne Airport was pleased with the level of service provided by Senversa, and the outcomes and advice from these investigations met the needs of the project.
Seafarers – City of Melbourne, VIC
Senversa was engaged by City of Melbourne to undertake a Geotechnical, Contamination and Environmental Site Assessment of the Seafarers Rest North Wharf Park located at Seafarers Rest North Wharf Park, Victoria.
City of Melbourne intended to maximise the benefit of Seafarers Rest North Wharf Park public open space through investigating remedial options.
The works were conducted in two stages. Stage 1; Geotechnical, Contamination and Environmental Site Assessment and Stage 2; Site Remediation Strategy and Recommendations / Environmental Management Plan (EMP) following Stage 1 conclusion.
The works completed were utilised to inform decision making regarding the ultimate specifications for the park design and construction.
The objective was to test the possibility of retaining the existing slab as well as identifying other practical remediation options. The report provided to City of Melbourne identified different remediation options ranging from full slab retention to total demolition and rebuild of a seawall/retaining wall. The Stage 2 report then detailed these options and provide recommendations for site remediation options.
Residential sub-division development, VIC
This residential estate covers an area of 57 ha and part of the Toolern Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) prepared by the Growth Areas Authority in 2011 and amended in 2015. The proposed subdivision once complete will provide housing to approximately 600 families. Senversa conducted geotechnical investigations for the subdivision’s internal pavements including fieldwork investigations involving test pitting, in-situ geotechnical testing and sampling of soils.
Residential sub-division development – Orchard Green, VIC
Senversa conducted geotechnical investigation for pavement, wetlands and retarding basin design. The site covers 8.5 hectares including 690 residential lots. Highly plastic clay and basalt boulders required consideration in the design of internal pavements for Stages 1 and 2, including connector road access to existing and future infrastructure.
