Stormwater Drainage / Water Harveting
Firedam Civil have been involved in stormwater drainage for many years. This work falls into several categories for us, renewals of existing stormwater pipe in suburbs which is disintegrating or needs to be upgraded, alternatively where we have been a sub-contractor to one of the major road constructors.
We have completed all the stormwater for the upgrade of the M5 widening between Liverpool and Campbelltown. In all there was about 8km of concrete pipe varying in size from 250mm to 850mm diameter together with associated pits and grates.
We have spoken previously about the “Gateway Project” (this is under the heading of ‘Specialised Projects’). We constructed the upgrade of all pipes, kerb inlet pits, sealed pits and all associated structures. Please take the time to read about this project.
Firedam Civil have also installed several GPTs for local councils and Sydney Water. We have also worked on busy roads as well as in sub divisions in pipe sizes of up to 2100mm diameter. We have also worked on projects where culverts were involved. One project stands out, where we had to install twin culverts in a suburb of Sydney. They were 2.2 x 1.5 x 2.44 each. This required the full closure of one traffic lane and one parking lane. We were able to keep one lane of traffic live at all times. We also completed several other projects. For a full list please do not hesitate to contact us or see our main list on this site.
Firedam Civil Pty Ltd also completed several water harvesting programmes. One of these was in the entertainment precinct of Darling Harbour. This project was an open tender, where we put in an alternative tender with a rain water capturing device which we invented with one of our designers. We won this tender from fourth position for our innovation and forward thinking. We later received an award for this work.
