Floreat Waters; A Herdsman Lake Residential Development, WA


Location: Herdsman Lake, WA
Completion Date: 1979

We were the contractor for the total development.

The fill requirement for this project was met by dredging 750,000m3 from Herdsman Lake as part of the overall project completed by this company. Dredging was done over 18 hour days, six days per week. A large quantity of peat was also dredged to form shallow lake areas. Our own earthmoving equipment was used.

Difficult typhus reed removal was undertaken by dredging. We undertook innovative engineering of dredges to suit very trying conditions. We also put in the services and roads with the help of subcontractors.
