Client: Manteena (Federal Government of Australia)
Date completed: March 2015

Details of Innovations and extra value for money:

There were issues with piles not gaining sufficient capacity at design embedment. We were able to splice extra pile material on site while complying to a very stringent QA standard in a remote location.
