ADG were engaged by Hutchinson Builders to provide value engineering for civil and structural Engineering services on the landmark riverside project as part of their tender submission.
The alternative engineering solutions provided upward of $2m in savings from the overall project value of circa $109m.
The original boardwalk concept was redesigned by ADG to eliminate major river works. The solution included a cantilevered approach with tensioned piles which allowed the construction to be undertaken from the landside, as opposed to costly marine barges and crainage.

ADG utilised extensive experience in the refurbishment of heritage listed structures to facilitate a careful and economical construction process to rejuvenate the existing structures.
Key features of proposed design include:
