Lyne Park Seawall, Rosebay Stage 1
GPM is currently contracted by Woollahra Council with the restoration of the Seawall at Lyne Park, Rosebay. The works include the demolition of the existing seawall and constructing a new wall of approximately 360m2 of rock faced sand stone blocks, concrete backfill, new drainage, new concrete walkways and guttering, the installation of 210meters of stainless steel balustrade and soft works. Duration of the work to be 7 months at a cost of $1.4 million
GPM completed the $5 million restoration works on the historical port of Echuca. This heritage listed wharf dates back to the 1800's and is and authentic working steam port, home to Australia's largest fleet of steam driven paddle steamers. Working closely with Campaspe council, the port of Echuca was completely disassembled and reassembled, restoring it back to it's original state. The use of sheet piling will overcome the natural obstacles provided by the Murray River, giving the highest standard of quality work otherwise unachievable through the use of divers. GPM is using all of it's own resources to deliver the project thus minimising sub-contractural agreements therefore increasing economy and efficiency. Be sure to keep and eye on this development on www.campaspe.vic.gov.au.
This project was completed May 2012.

Contracted by Woollahra Council and funded by Roads and Maritime Services the existing Rosebay Boat ramp at Lyne Park was demolished and refurbished in 2012. The $1.3 Million project involved widening and extending the boat ramp with large pre-cast concrete panels as well as designing and installing a new floating pontoon and gangway. There was extensive dive work carried out in underpinning the existing boat ramp sub structure and positioning the new headstocks and panels as most of the work was below mean water level. Careful coordination between Woollahra Council, RMS and other contractors in adjacent construction sites ensured successful delivery of this project on time and within budget.
