Hartley Street Brighton Drainage Improvement Works

Based on the success of our Peterson Street Project, Contek Constructions was engaged by Bayside City Council to conduct drainage upgrade works within the roadway of Hartley Street Brighton.


Upon site establishment and confirmation of levels and services, Contek ascertained that conditions on site did not align with existing assets. Working with the client and designers, a resolution was quickly reached, with minimal loss to production.


With a major private school occupying one side of the street, it was imperative that 120m of pit and pipe were installed before the resumption of the school term. A target that was promptly met.


Despite challenging conditions, Contek was proud to be informed that CCTV inspection of the new drainage found no defects.

Main Scope:

• Trenching up to 2.6m in depth, often in poor and unstable earth conditions.
• Conduct major drainage upgrades, with the constraint of low overhead services.
• Conduct all operations within a confined environment, whilst liaising with residents and stakeholders in a professional and courteous manner.
