Certus projects were contracted to design and construct an infrastructure expansion trench for the University of Technology in Sydney. The work involved the installation of underground services connecting UTS Building 10 with existing pipes in Building 7.

The renewed utility connection will allow longevity to the university’s water infrastructure. The project was carried out in two stages to ensure provisions were safe and in addition, to prevent disruption to the students, residents, and traffic in the area.

Key features of the project include:

  • Steel fabrication and installation at varying depths and bends to meet the design requirements and provide allowances for the shafts next to the buildings.
  • An insulation process involving specialised mechanical pipes were used to maintain the water temperature underground. Additionally, waterproofing systems and hydrostatic testing were performed at regular intervals for 24 hours to ensure works were successfully installed.
  • Access and egress to construct on an extremely busy pedestrian area of the University.
  • Creating a flushing loop for chemical treatment of the water pipes before commission
