Schick began working with the Avanda Group on the Acland Park residential development in September 2021. Once complete, the property development project will have 888 sections available to house approximately 2,200 people. Schick is contributing to work on 172 of these sections in stages 11 and 13 to 16.
The scope of Schick’s work on stages 11 and 13-16 includes:
- Bulk Earthworks
- Drainage (sewer, stormwater, water reticulation)
Having a large-scale project and not getting too far ahead of themselves was foreseen as a challenge for the Schick team. That is why before work commenced on the project, the team made the decision to divide the construction into three “phases”.
Aside from some minor defects that need attention, phase one is now complete. Phase two is well underway with the earthworks, drainage and service installs all finished, as well as the roading scope. A total of 37,000 cubic meters of topsoil has been stripped to allow for a further 21,000 cubic meters of cut to fill.
Work has recently started on phase 3, with the final section of the sewer line and stormwater being installed. Over 5000m has been installed throughout the project so far, with the installation of another 5000m required. Schick’s work on the project is progressing steadily and is tracking well to finish on time (mid-July) and on budget.
Schick understands the impact construction projects have on the community. Therefore, the team working at Acland Park have ensured a strong Erosion and Sediment Control Plan is in place to manage the dust, sound, sediment, and vibration from the project. A 30,000-litre watercart is on site to suppress dust pollution and a road sweeper is used regularly to clear any sediment that makes its way out of the worksite.
