Blast video of 300 George St – produced by Osterman Consulting
Mainland Civil have now excavated to the floor level of the Level 7 basement and are providing detailed excavation for pad footings, lift cores, stairwells and the like. CadCon is providing the setout and As-Constructed surveys for this excavation. The lift core for the 80 Storey Residential Tower that will be constructed is a further 8m below the basement level. CadCon provided a Surface Model and setout for the blasting consultant (Osterman Consulting). The resultant blast was carried out successfully enabling the excavation to take place. CadCon ran remote monitoring observations before and after the blast and were able to confirm with Certainty & Accuracy that no movement had occurred as a result of this blast.

Aligned Resources Group
Stockyard Village, Mount Isa
ARG having identified that there was a housing and accommodation shortage in Mount Isa engaged CadCon to prepare and lodge a development application for a 1000 person accommodation village in Mount Isa. CadCon’s analysis concluded that there was in fact a need for the accommodation and that a village of this size could not be provided on any other freehold sites in the Mount Isa area. Our application was successful in demonstrating that need for the village was sufficient to override the industrial zoning of the land and the application was approved by Council.
Red Gum Estate, Mount Isa
In order to provide housing choice in Mount Isa ARG commissioned CadCon to coordinate and prepare a combined material change of use and reconfiguration of a lot development application for a 30 lot duplex estate and a 14 multiple unit building on the disused RSL site in Mount Isa. CadCon’s design maximised yield for the site whilst continuing to maintain liveability in accordance with accepted planning practice. Council recently approved the application and construction is expected to commence in the near future.
