Sanctuary Lakes Golf Course at Point Cook in Victoria is a safer and healthier place to tee off from after we were tasked with remediating contaminated soil on the course.
The project was challenging given it started under Stage 3 Covid-19 restrictions and was completed during Stage 4 lockdown to satisfy EPA reporting timelines. The entire process was carefully and successfully managed because of the skills and expertise of our people.
Contaminated soil, including asbestos and industrial waste, was located in the top 300-500mm of the fill used to construct the bund for the driving range. The bund covers an area of 17,000m2, rising approximately 4-5m up from the driving range.
The soil was remediated progressively; after being cleared as safe for beneficial reuse, it was reshaped and incorporated into the current design of the golf course.
The project was completed without damage to the driving range or the rest of the golf course, with praise from our client for completing the work in a timely and professional manner.
- 17,000m2 area of contaminated soil remediated
