Inertia Engineering is delighted to announce our engagement by ‘Parklands at Clarendon’ to help in the transformation of an old rifle range located within the beautiful Somerset Regional Council. For this development we are providing full civil engineering consultancy services including operational works approvals, construction supervision/contract administration as well as certification of the final civil products.
Located just a short drive away from Rifle Range and Fernvale, the 101-hectare site is set to be transformed into stunning rural home sites ranging in size from 3,593m2 to 9,560m2. The project is now nearing the completion of delivery of the first stage (1A) and Inertia are currently seeking construction approval for the second stage (1B). Currently planned for release over 7 stages, Inertia is immensely proud to be involved in the sustainable development of such a picturesque pocket of land.
One key feature of the design is the use of little to no pit and pipework for stormwater drainage, Civil Principal Calvin Kirk explains; “Balancing cut to fill ratios in the rural scenario can take several iterations. We need to be sure the stormwater network is safe under heavy rain events whilst maintaining the balance of how the open drainage network exists off the road shoulder. The design is to elevate the appearance of the land yet present as naturally as possible”
