AE Group Civil and Mining were engaged by the Gold Coast City Council (GCCC) to provide heavy earthmoving plant and equipment to deliver a Landfill Liner Platform which was the first stage in the construction of the city’s largest transfer station located at Reedy Creek. The transfer station was being built on a former quarry and building waste landfill site.
Our scope comprised the removal of 400,000 cubic metres of bulk earthworks, extensive material selection, placement and conditioning of earthworks platform to Level 1 specifications. AE Group mobilised plant including PC850 excavators with a fleet of 50T rear dump trucks.
Final trim batter work was undertaken with several PC300-8 excavators (with GPS) providing fast efficient and peg-less operations. AE graders with GPS capability were also utilised in the bulk earthworks crews for haul road maintenance and management of fills, which was accomplished by the company’s skilled final trim operators.
