Client Case Study Bretts Wharf Riverwalk 

Bretts Wharf Riverwalk is a pedestrian and bicycle, concrete, shared path suspended over the north bank of the Brisbane River at Hamilton. An existing QSS construction client approached us to assist on this project with survey works. 

Here is a bit more about what was involved in the project: 

Type of work being doneRevetment wall to tie in with existing walkway along the Brisbane River at Bretts Wharf, Hamilton. 

Surveying works requiredPre-design Survey (Survey of existing features to assist in designing wall to required specifications). 

Set out for the construction of a rock wall. 

As-constructed Survey. 

Project Location: Bretts Wharf Riverwalk Remediation – Hamilton, Brisbane City Council. 

Project background info: The structure is 210 metres long and 4.8 metres wide and runs east from Brett’s Wharf ferry terminal. During regular maintenance inspections, council identified that a section of the riverwalk, adjacent to Bretts Wharf Apartments, required work to enhance the life of the structure and ensure that it remained safe and serviceable, without restrictions, for the benefit of users. 

The Bretts Wharf Riverwalk rehabilitation project is part of Council’s Boardwalk Rehabilitation Program. This project is part of council’s commitment to improving quality of life for residents while ensuring our city has the services and infrastructure to meet the needs of future generations. 

For further information please visit the Brisbane City Council website here

Project information: To improve the safety and life of Bretts Wharf Riverwalk, Council stabilised the river bank and piles that support the riverwalk. 

Works involved: 

  • Installing a rock armour seawall 
  • Injecting cement stabilised fill and sand into the void under the deck 
  • Minor repairs and replacement of the corroded under-deck reinforcements (where required). 

Outcome: Our client used our survey for the design phase for critical tie ins. If our survey was not accurate, it could have resulted in a full re-design with modifications, which would have cost our client valuable time and money. 

Due to the unstable ground surface of the riverbed, to ensure accuracy, we used metal star pickets. 

Documentation: QSS completed and supplied our client with as-constructed plans as required. 

NOTE: What are as-constructed surveys/plans? 

As constructed refers to measurement of the built form. This often occurs for public infrastructure (sewers, drainage, roads etc) as well as buildings and earthworks. Delivery of as-constructed survey works is usually to a standard such as, As Constructed (ADAC), so that these measurements can be passed onto local government for maintenance. As constructed surveys are also regularly performed on buildings for compliance with building approvals or construction design standards.

Why Do I Need a Building Set Out Survey?

Why Do I Need a Building Set Out Survey?
Why Do I Need a Building Set Out Survey

If the world of construction is a bit foreign to you, one thought you might be having is why do I need a building set out survey?

At Queensland Surveying Solutions we’re here to talk you through why you need a set out survey and what exactly it entails.

Our team organises the set out surveying of houses, townhouses, office blocks, industrial buildings, warehouses and commercial premises.

To find out how we can help you, call Queensland Surveying Solutions on 07 3325 0927 or send us an online message here.

What is a Set Out Survey?

A set out survey involves transferring a building design from approved architectural plans onto the land itself so the builders can follow it during construction. This survey is of upmost importance to ensure accuracy throughout the building process.

At Queensland Surveying Solution, we use the latest equipment including:

  • Latest model Leica Robotic Total Station
  • Leica Controller
  • Reflective Prisms
  • Poles and Tripods

Why it’s Important to Have a Set Out Survey

Set outs are required to ensure your structure is in the right place. We complete set outs for

a large array of projects including construction of:

  • New homes
  • Carports
  • Renovations/extensions
  • Retaining walls
  • Granny flats

Our large construction/civil projects also require set out – roads, tunnels, bridges and major commercial buildings.

Process for Set Out Surveys

Each survey requires the accurate location of the boundaries by a field survey and checks against the existing survey plans. The design is checked to ensure that it meets the setback requirements and then uploaded onto a data recorder/computer that allows efficient set   out of the design in the field.

Once this is done, it is easy to return for later stages and replace the same points in exactly the same location. For example, returning to pin the footings or walls after the foundations are poured.

Form 16 Certification

Setout and siting certificates are done by checking the location of the relevant structure to the boundaries and comparing those to the offsets from the boundaries that have been approved. If compliant, a form 16 certificate is issued, if not a sketch is prepared with details of the non-compliance.

A common error is for builders or homeowners to get this done after construction has been completed. It is strongly recommended that new work is set out by a registered surveyor to avoid difficulties afterwards. The cost of the set-out work allows for a form 16 and is not that much more than getting it done after the building is finished.

Client Case Study House Set Out Caboolture

QSS were engaged by a builder who has been a client for several years to conduct a house set for a new residential home in Caboolture South, part of the Moreton Bay Regional Council area.

A set out survey was used to measure out the exact position of a proposed structure within the legal boundaries of the land.

Type of surveying works being completed: Building set out for a new residential home (405m2 block and approximately 200m2 home) and Form 16 certificate – to certify the build (location) was compliant with council regulations.

What was involved: The approved plans were compared to the corresponding CAD files to ensure there were no design variations. After pre-calculations were completed, a site visit was completed to set out the house to ensure it was built in the correct position as per approved plans.
