DAC value delivered

This project included works in and around the environmentally sensitive Black Duck Creek. DAC were required to liaise with local council and EPA in order to ensure that works were carried out in accordance to the strictest requirements.

Construction timeframes were crucial for the client on this project and DAC was able to complete stages continuously. Major duplication and signalised intersection upgrades were completed on the busy Dohles Rocks Rd in conjunction with TMR and Pine Shire Council.

Earthworks for the adjacent Coles site as well as the construction of a 7m deep sewer rising main was also completed by DAC during the Northquarter contract. This substantially increased property values for the client as well as providing new infrastructure to the surrounding community.
