Fitzgibbon Chase Estate Stages 17 – 21
Calibre Consulting for Economic Development Queensland (EDQ)
The Fitzgibbon Chase Estate is a master planned community located 13km north of the Brisbane CBD. An initiative of the Queensland Government, on completion the Estate will have approximately 1,350 homes across 21 stages.
ALLROADS became involved in the project in late 2014 after being awarded the Stages 17 & 18 contract from project Consultants, Calibre Consulting. Following on from this, the company was also awarded Stage 19, 20, 21 works and the $1m Norris Road storm water drainage infrastructure and road and intersection work works; taking the total value of works to over $10.3m.
Works undertaken across the stages have included earthworks, roadworks, stormwater, sewer and water services, and coordination of electrical and telecommunication infrastructure.
Challenges that were faced throughout the duration of the project include small road and lot sizes, which created difficulty in planning and installing services in roads to minimise clashes with surrounding services. The solution was to plan and route services correctly to reduce clashes and maximise the lot sizes for the Client.
