Wivenhoe Dam Flood Remediation

Wivenhoe Dam is one of twelve dams located in south east Queensland. As one of the largest dams in the area its full supply volume storage holds 1.165 million megalitres. Built in 1984, Wivenhoe Dam was constructed on the Brisbane River approximately 80 kilometres from Brisbane. The other highlight of Wivenhoe Dam and its lake is its recreational facilities. The area is very popular around the shoreline of the lake for all water activities, camping, walking trails and fishing. Wivenhoe Dam contains a scenic lake area, its surroundings are best described as tranquil and peaceful with BBQ facilities and holds a conference/convention venue.

Our innovation

In September 2014 our client of five years plus approached Land Solution Australia to work with them and provide 3D Laser Scanning and survey requirements to establish MGA control & AHD level datum and preparation of control/data files for as-constructed for Wivenhoe Dam Flood Remediation against an existing rock face. The services rendered incorporated drafting for design plan as-con mark-ups of concrete re-enforcement to rock face and scan registration and filtering.

Recommendation of a smart solution

Land Solution Australia provided their client with a latest technology solution to a difficult problem. The 3d laser scanning solution of the rock face before construction with scan control and during construction of the concrete mesh, face lines give a smart and highly detailed solution for our customer in a reduced timeframe.

Premium service delivery

Our As-con survey provided GPS data for control MGA and laser scanning of the rock face for the Wivenhoe Dam Flood Remediation took approximately 4 months working closely with our client from start to completion of this project. By enhancing our survey services for our client we were able to provide a detailed scan of the rock face before and after As-con rock face. This resulted in a very precise volume of concrete material that was applied to stabilise the area for our clients financial claim.
