Project Description

Sekisui House Australia, is proposing to develop part of the Ripley Town Centre, a 25 – hectare commercial precinct in the heart of the Ripley Valley. As part of due diligence investigations, Epic Environmental has identified a historical livestock dip at the site; which had resulted in the contamination of soil with arsenic, zinc and total recoverable hydrocarbon (TRH).

Epic worked with Sekisui House Australia and the civil earthworks contractor to:

  • Develop a program of further investigation, remediation and validation to remove contaminated soil from the site;
  • Complete works in a manner that ensured protection of the environment and the safety of site workers; and
  • Complete remediation and validation works in accordance with regulatory requirements enabling the site to be removed from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection’s (EHP) Environmental Management Register (EMR).

Epic achieved to complete all given works in a timely and efficient manner, facilitating development of Stage 1 of the Ripley Town Centre.

The resurgence of Collingwood Park, was initiated through the large broadacre holdings of QLD Group. DTS had successfully gained approvals for in excess of 1000 lots over 10 stages of residential development. In addition, our surveyors assisted with the engineering design of the master – planned community and attended to the preparation of cadastral survey plans, as well as the sealing of the same Ipswich City Council.
