FEATURED PROJECT - Heritage Wall Relocation, Whittlesea Victoria

In September 2020 development of the Findon Road extension commenced. Three remnant Dry Stone walls with existing Heritage overlays were on the site. We were required to remove and consolidate the existing stone and build a new wall. Due to the historic value of the stone, removal was done carefully by hand. Approximately 200 tonnes were removed and rebuilt into a 145m long, (1.3 m tall) freestanding wall, parallel with the planned road extension and consistent with the style of the original wall. 

Coordinating with Council, Heritage and Civil contractors, KDSWC strategically built sections to accommodate the challenging time schedule and achieved Heritage sign-off on the completed wall.

FEATURED PROJECT- Cobblebank Village, Rockbank.

We were required to build eight feature walls surrounding the entrance to Cobblebank village shopping centre. The heavily coursed walls were designed to provide maximum strength, suitable for a high traffic area. All of the stone was sourced from the site, and complimented the facade design of the shopping precinct, yet provided a natural contrast to the more modern elements.

The client described these walls as the signature design pieces within this building project.  

FEATURED PROJECT - Accolade Wetlands Rockbank Victoria

Our team successfully constructed over 200m of low heritage style wall while working closely with the residential developer, a number of civil contractors and the site landscaping developer. Under Heritage requirements, all of the stone was sourced from remnant walls which were originally located on the site. The wetlands development is the centrepiece of the planned community, and the dry stone walls will form a significant aesthetic and local cultural identity. This particular low lying wall was designed for maximum structural integrity and safety in busy pedestrian areas. The style reflects a traditional post and wire composite wall, widely used throughout the Melton Shire.

FEATURED PROJECT- Kyneton Ridge Estate Winery, Kyneton

 

Surrounded by nature reserves and granite outcrops, Kyneton Ridge is a well recognised winery in the Macedon Ranges. As part of their renovations and landscaping a 25-metre retaining wall provided a beautiful welcoming entrance to the restaurant, gallery and cellar door. This retaining wall was built using local sandstone with large 100mm flagstones that integrate into the sloping garden bed.
