Project Overview

Chittering Retreat is a rural subdivision awarded to Croker Construction due to their expertise and experience in similar projects. Reilly Contractors were appointed as sub-contractor to undertake the installation of the stormwater drainage works package for this project.

Stormwater drainage consisted of reinforced concrete pipes ranging up to 600mm diameter, with both junction and side entry pits (SEPs) installed along the road to pick up surface water. Driveways required individual culvert crossings and headwalls to meet local government requirements.

Reilly Contractors were responsible for supplying all project resources in terms of machinery and labour. We also supplied a portion of the required project materials. Machinery included the use of one of our 24T excavators, which was complimented by the use of a 30T machine brought in to assist with excavation of hard ground. A front end wheeled loader was utilised to place product and backfill trenches.  Compaction was achieved through the use of 500KG plate compactors and smooth drum rollers. Construction water was accessed via the required on site water cart, supplied by Croker Construction.

The most challenging aspect of the project related to poor telecommunications coverage with the Company’s existing service provider, within this outlying region of Perth. Particular attention was paid to our organisational management in terms of ensuring our site machinery and other deliveries, such as fuel and materials, were well scheduled. We were aware that if this was not well managed it would prove difficult to rectify any situations whilst on site.

The site locality challenges proved to be an excellent reminder on the importance of project communications. Our team excelled to prove we are well equipped to work on future rural subdivisions. We have also taken steps to investigate a range of mobile telephone providers to ensure that our site teams always benefit from the best network coverage available.

Reilly Contractors once again congratulates our site team for delivering this project on time and safely. We are proud that our Company zero incidents record was maintained on this project.

This was the first contract which our business has undertaken for Croker Construction. We were delighted with the success of the project, which has given rise to further contracts and we look forward to a continued excellent relationship with this Client.
