38 Zackwell Court
In the case of Zackwell Court, the client needed to lift the levels of warehouse parking over Melbourne Water’s existing drain. After Intrax performed an analysis of loads on the pipe, we found that it could not withstand the proposed fill.
The challenge presented to our dedicated Civil Engineering team was to find a solution that did not compromise the structural integrity of the pipe but still satisfied the needs of all parties.
In order to do so, the team at Intrax worked with Melbourne Water to ensure that all possible solutions were considered.
Ultimately, the solution that Intrax produced involved using light-weight backfill material that allowed for the higher levels to be created without compromising the strength of the pipe.
