As part of the Subi East Development and on behalf of the Western Australian State Government via Landcorp, RJV have been appointed to carry out demolition and remediation works to the iconic Subiaco Oval.
RJV"s association with PEET at Wellard commenced in early 2013 and to date, RJV has successfully completed $50m of Earthworks and Civil Works, which includes nearly 1,000 lots.
The Village at Wellard is Perth’s first greenfields purpose built transit orientated development, with the Wellard train station at the centre of the development. It will be ultimately home to some 7,000 residents. The development incorporates 2 wetlands and protected bushland which have been sensitively rehabilitated during development.
On the doorstep of the Swan Valley, RJV commenced work at Vale in mid-2012 and has since completed over 90 separate works contracts for Stockland, totalling in excess of $110M and providing housing lots for over 2,500 new homes in Aveley during this time. The main area of the works has been situated on farmland predominantly used for the training of racehorses.
Prior to works commencement there was a significant demolition contract awarded to RJV for the demolition and disposal of structures, both above and below ground, including the cataloguing, removal, and disposal of large amounts of building materials including asbestos and other contaminants.
Subsoil conditions at Vale range from sand through to significant clay layers and occasional laterite. The management of acid sulphate soils and groundwater infiltration and acidity are daily tasks undertaken by RJV, along with the blending of site based topsoil with imported sand, providing a fill material that meets the strict permeability requirements of the development.
In August 2011, RJV commenced construction of the Whiteman Edge development in Henley Brook, 20km NE of Perth CBD (adjacent to Whiteman Park). When complete, the development will comprise over 1,500 residential lots and will include in excess of 22 hectares of community recreational facilities, a neighbourhood shopping centre and schools. The development is a joint venture between Stockland, Department of Housing, and Whiteman Edge Developments.
Construction at the site presented a number of environmental challenges for RJV, which prides itself on its commitment to environmental management. The development area is flanked by sensitive wetlands and sits above an extremely high water table. Treatment of acid sulphate soils, strategic dewatering and close monitoring and management of groundwater infiltration are part of the day-to-day operations being undertaken by RJV at the site.
Large volumes of imported local sand have been required to bring the site up to its design levels. This has required target planning and management in consultation with local authorities to ensure that existing residents and infrastructure are not adversely affected by high volumes of truck and machine movements.
To date, RJV has completed contracts in excess of $80m since commencement.
The estate is situated on Yanchep Beach Road between the Sun City Country Club and the Yanchep National Park. RJV commenced construction with Stage 1 of the Yanchep Golf Estate in late 2011 which included bulk earthworks, underground services, retaining walls and road construction, along with the roundabout and main entry from the existing Yanchep Beach Road. The interface between the development and the golf course has been successfully created with the use of naturally occurring limestone, along with the preservation of existing trees and vegetation to provide an aesthetically pleasing link between the property boundaries and the golf course fairways.
Throughout construction of the development, RJV has worked closely with both engineering and environmental consultants to ensure delivery of an impressive residential estate that co-exists with native flora and fauna species. The implementation of strict guidelines for the protection of native species such as the Carnaby Black Cockatoo, combined with diligent monitoring of machine hygiene and movements to stop the spread of dieback has allowed RJV to present the Yanchep Golf Estate as a residential development that exists harmoniously within its natural surroundings.
