This project presented some unique civil works challenges for our construction team. The works included:

  • 45.5 ha of clearing
  • 600,000 m2 bulk earthworks
  • Two 440m2 tunnel bores under the Boyne River
  • 5.9km sewerage lines
  • 4.75km stormwater
  • 170 pits and headwalls
  • Four kilometres of water mains
  • Pump station
  • Rising main
  • 32,000m2 of prim/primer seal
  • 2500 tonnes of asphalt.


Shadforths work is of high quality, and their WH&S and Environmental understanding is excellent.

Shadforths are flexible, approachable and were focused on our key deliverables. It is in my opinion that very few contractors in the Residential Sub-division market could have achieved these outcomes in the specified timeframe and budget.

I would be happy to recommend Shadforths to any major developer who requires high compliance and performance to set timeframes.
