Major Projects


  • Collins Street Wharf

    February 2015

    Aus Pits recently manufactured a substantial City Power electrical pit for Cycon Cilvil’s Collins Street Wharf project. The Collins Street Wharf project is being overseen by leading international property and infrastructure group Lend Lease, the purpose of the project is to provide a direct connection from Victoria Harbour Docklands precinct to the Melbourne CBD via Collins Street.

    Julian Van Wegan, yard supervisor of Victoria’s Area 2, did a marvellous job of building the 4m x 3m x 2.7m structure. The structure was a very complex design particularly the riser section which required 2no risers from the same topslab section resulting in a false floor being installed during pouring. The bellmouths, unistrut and pulling eyes were all cast into the pit by Julian’s team, and a ladder manufactured by our internal fabrication department was also supplied.

    On completion the pit weighed an impressive 30,500kg’s and required a 90ton slewing crane to lift. It was transported to site using heavy haulage company Higher Haul which was coordinated through Chris Brayshaw.

    Aus Pits project coordinator Daniel Wirken along with Aus Pits management were impressed with the quality of the finished product. This was Aus Pits first dealings with the contractor Cycon Civil, Daniel advised that they were very easy to communicate with and noted that he looks forward to working with them on future projects.
