Cadastral and High Def Survey for Media House

Overview

Media House required construction works to be built over an existing rail corridor, South of the Collins Street Bridge and Southern Cross Station. This included a new platform at street level accommodating the The Age Newspaper’s new location.

Situation

Constructional challenges included:

  • Alterations needed to be conducted during programmed rail shut-downs with limited site access during normal operations
  • Existing corridor required new parcels of land to support crash-wall structures
  • Construction on a manufactured pad required detailed information


Our most significant challenge was the platform’s installation and the creation of cadastral subdivision documents for the crash-walls.

AAM provided information to Grocon outlining clashing stanchion and cable adjustments considerably improving operational efficiency.

Action

AAM mobilised a 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanner capturing key information to enable Grocon to better allocate their staffing requirements during shut-down.

This assisted submission requirements and ensured the as-constructed crash walls and transfer beam records were accurate. AAM also supplied comprehensive engineering survey works and an extensive document validation.

Result

We provided reliable railway corridor information quickly, maximising constructional efficiency during programmed shut-downs. AAM also provided detailed information for VRIOGS submissions on all as-built data. Competent Engineering Construction surveyors ensured structural and ornamental features were installed accurately and received validation that the information genuinely represented its existing conditions.
