Azzure Apartments 

Walter Iezzi Property Group

Dewatering Spears, Water Treatment, Project Management 

GSS was the selected dewatering contractor to provide groundwater management for the proposed double basement excavation for the Azzure Apartment project in Bokarina, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

With over a 5-meter drawdown from existing groundwater levels required, GSS installed over 120 meters of dewatering spears along the sheet-piled perimeter. These systems were installed specifically to take advantage of the challenging ground conditions located on site due to the natural impermeable clays cutting diagonally through the middle of the site. 

In addition, large water treatment units were also established on the construction site to allow the discharged water to successfully meet the strict release criteria set by the Sunshine Coast Council. This had proved an extremely challenging process as the iron and heavy metals levels within the raw groundwater exceeded the criteria by up to 3,700%

Si Bilinga Apartments 

GCB Constructions

Deep Wells, Dewatering Spears, Project Management 

With highly permeable sands down to 10m and very close proximity to the ocean, GSS had the challenge to provide a solution for a double basement construction in Bilinga along the Gold Coast in QLD 

With over a 4-meter drawdown required, a set of deep wells were installed to provide up to 20L/s of volume removal. Due to an unknown indurated sands layer found at 10m along with existing sheet piles only extending to 8m, the deep wells eventually became insufficient to deal with the hydraulic grade that flowed horizontally along the indurated sands (Coffee Rock)

This recharge of groundwater was consistent as it flowed from the Gold Coast airport west of site to the beach head directly east. To capture this, a wellpoint system was installed along the perimeter which was later buried to provide constant dewatering during the excavation and construction process. The wellpoints efficiently kept the site dry and prevented any further delays
