Earthworks

Earthworks

Lycopodium infrastructure has a vast amount of knowledge when it comes to both bulk and details earthworks design. Bulk earthworks design involves reshaping the existing terrain to a uniform grade to suit the project requirements. This is the stage during which the project would have the majority of the cut and fill volumes calculated, leaving the design well on its way to looking like the completed product. Bulk earthworks design is typically used for the construction of urban public open spaces, subdivisions / new development early works, and mining facilities.

Detailed earthworks refer to the more refined and finishing works, and are generally undertaken post bulk earthworks. These works might include earth pads and local grading on top of which facilities will be constructed, pedestrian paths and cycle ways, drainage open channels and sumps, smoothing between roads/car parks and existing terrain, and any tie-in works.
Hydrology

Hydrology

With our proven track record in providing hydrological design services on a number of local government, private and resourcing projects both in Australia and overseas, our drainage team exudes a wealth of experience in surface hydrology such as analysing catchments, flood mapping and undertaking hydrological studies and reviewing and designing flood protection features.

Our team also has a range of experience in producing solutions for smaller catchment areas through drainage modelling, pipe and pit network design and open channel design including diversion drains.
