The Loch Sport Sewerage Scheme represent Ledonne Constructions’ pioneering move into the Victorian construction sector. The scheme, estimated at a construction cost of $40.3 million, is a major project for the governing water authority, Gippsland Water, for the next 3 years. Once completed, the scheme will provide an effective sewerage solution for 2,700 properties in the township of Loch Sport, in South East Victoria.
Of particular importance on this project is the environmental sensitivity of the local area. Loch Sport is in the middle of the Ramsar Wetland, a EPBC Act listed wetland, and as contractors we understand the importance of managing the environmental risks associated with this, and endeavour to use our vast experience and best practice environmental controls during construction.
The works in this contract include;
- Construction of two new pump stations, above ground pipework and an emergency storage tank;
- Construction of a workshop with switchroom, standby generator, office and general facilities;
- Installation of a jib crane at both pump station locations;
- Installation of two remote actuating valves which will create two flushing loops when connected to the pressure sewer pipework system;
- Ground works, fencing and concrete driveways to complete site restoration.
- Installation of two odour control units, one at each pump station site.
The works are now completed. Ledonne thanks all parties involved in this exciting project that have taken our works out of NSW for the first time. See below for final site and construction progress photos.
