The Riverstone Scheduled Lands is comprised of approximately 1,600 paper subdivision lots which are owned by over 320 landowner groups. While much of this area has been rezoned for residential development, the land has not been developed because it is not serviced with sufficient civil and utility infrastructure.
The Riverstone Scheduled Lands, Precinct A (Stages 1-3) project consists of the subdivision development of approximately 317 residential lots held by 51 landowner groups. Under the Paper Subdivision legislation, Landcom was designated as the Relevant Authority to deliver the subdivision works on behalf of landowners.
Orion was engaged by Landcom to provide principal’s representative services for the duration of the project, which included:
- Demolition of existing structures,
- Site remediation,
- Delivery of civil and utility infrastructure to create 317 residential lots.
Remediation of land is a complex and potentially cost volatile exercise. It requires close management and diligence to ensure works are being undertaken in line with the Remediation Action Plan.
Remediation and demolition costs had to be allocated to the numerous land owners, which created a further challenge for the project.
Orion’s construction manager implemented a thorough tracking schedule that enabled Landcom to allocate costs to each of the land owners. As well as maintaining detailed traceability records required for the issue of the critical Site Audit Statements.
Drone footage was captured by Orion’s in-house team, providing a visual record of the delivery process which can be used for assessing construction progress.
Orion demonstrates value to the client through its lateral thinking in overcoming early works and construction challenges, ensuring prompt attention to issues. Remediation strategies were initiated, managed and driven by Orion to provide the best value outcome for the landowners. Planning of works staging, around a multitude of site constraints, were also initiated and managed by Orion to ensure critical path timeframes were met.
