ADG were able to add significant value in their role as the lead consultant on this multidisciplinary project.
ADG were responsible for the early identification, for the client, that all work under the commission meets the requirements as stated in Table 188.8.131.52 of the Brisbane City Plan 2014 (or relevant council equivalent) and is therefore exempt development and will not be subject to development or building applications or approvals with the relevant council or concurrent agencies.
ADG also advised the client on the appropriate time to undertake stakeholder coordination to avoid potential abortive work.
With no stormwater infrastructure apparent in one area where drainage connections were required, ADG were able to come up with an “island” solution, which maintained existing flow paths, but still allowed the desirable road geometry to be achieved. ADG were also able to position the relocated bus stop in a location where compliant longitudinal grades could be achieved, minimising the loss of existing car parking, all the while optimising the cost benefit by limiting the infrastructure upgrade impacts to line marking alterations. With drainage modifications required as a result of enlarging the existing cul-de-sac to enable bus turnaround, ADG were able to simulate and report 3D services construction and installation scenarios leading to certainty in design and less commercial risk in construction.
