Case Study: Bendigo Gaol / Ulumbarra Theatre

In 2014 Avard Civil were awarded the contract to perform the bulk earthworks for the Bendigo Gaol.

The project consisted of:

  • 8,500 m3 bulk cut to a depth of over six metres

  • 70% of excavation into natural siltstone rock

  • Due to heritage walls and the delicate nature of the existing prison foundations, a diamond blade saw was attached to the excavator to knock the rock out in blocks with laser monitoring of the walls for movement

  • Detailed excavation for footings

  • Preparation and installation of 2,300 m2 of asphalt courtyards
