Building the best doesn't come easily. It takes commitment to relationships and a comprehensive understanding of your needs to help you build the best.
Billbergia’s Wentworth Point development ‘Wentworth Point Marinas’ is a unique 7 stage development comprising of approximately 3500 residential units and 50+ retail units including a shopping precinct, council library, community roads, open space and the Bennelong Bridge.
SDG was engaged by the client as the titling consultant for the whole development, tasked to deliver a titling solution, varied in its challenges. Site limitations and council requirements meant a unique design throughout the project of elevated roadways with car parking beneath.
Taking a hierarchical approach to the titling of the development provided the best solution. Initially, a community subdivision in stratum was undertaken to separate the roadways from each development lot. The development lots were then subdivided, to meet the needs of the ever-changing marketplace and the local community. This includes further stratum subdivisions to separate the residential and retail components of each development lot and subsequent strata plans.
With a prior history of completing works for Lendlease on-time and on-budget, we were delighted to be asked to work alongside their team on the staged development of a 32-lot residential subdivision at Jordan Springs.
With a firm schedule in place for completion, Lendlease approached SDG with the understanding we could supply the necessary resource and expertise to meet their specific timeframes and requirements of their project.
The project was staged, with the corresponding subdivisions plans prepared and lodged using our custom suite of LandXML programs which resulted in faster registration for our client.
The SDG team recently accepted the challenge set by ALAND to carry out setout works for their large-scale residential development at Schofield Gardens, consisting of 17 buildings across 6 adjacent sites.
Due to the time-critical nature of this project, we allocated a dedicated two-person survey team placing up to 400 marks per day across concurrent building sites.
Moreover, SDG was able to provide these services full-time on-site as required to help contain our clients’ surveying costs and to ensure that at critical points in the project we were available to provide an immediate response to tight construction requirements.
With our in-house quality assurance process in place, our team were able to identify design discrepancies early enabling project milestones to be met and costly delays avoided.
SDG were delighted to have played our part in the construction of this international award-winning project.
In June 2019, Pullman Hotel in Sydney Olympic Park sought to partially replace their facade due to combustible cladding regulations. Timing was critical for this project to meet the rectification orders that were placed on the building.
Using the versatility of the 3D laser scanner, just two days on site were required to carry out the non-intrusive survey. The facade was 3D laser scanned, with each of the 1223 panels individually documented at over 1,000 square metres.
The data captured allowed our surveyors to dimension and calculate areas for each individual panel. A custom program was developed using LISP to extract, label and dimension the panels into a table, allowing contractors to fabricate each panel off site, and complete the installation hassle free.
SDG have worked on a number of projects at the Sydney Opera House (SOH), working on the design and as-built models. The projects include T.I.D.E - Tours Immersive Digital Experience, Security Systems Upgrade Project, and Central Control Room 2.0.
With multiple contractors working on several renovations simultaneously, it was imperative that the design reflected SOH’s vision, while fitting the existing conditions using point cloud data. Regular BIM meetings were held to ensure fluid design coordination, preventing costly on-site delays and abortive work.
All aspects were modelled to a minimum of Level of Detail (LOD) 350, with the final LOD 500 as-built model delivered to feedback into the SOH central master model.
The investment in BIM will help lower the lifetime cost of managing these assets into the future, for generations to come..
SDG were engaged to undertake a detail & level survey of Riverside Oaks Golf Resort to facilitate the redevelopment masterplan.
Surveys were undertaken over approximately 67 hectares of virgin bushland and existing golf course including the location of 7,500 trees, existing roads, fire trails, dams, maintenance sheds and clubhouse.
SDG utilised multiple surveying technologies to undertake the survey and to deliver the best product for the client, successfully working within the project constraints to ensure the best outcome for their development.
