The diversity of our service offer makes it impossible to display here all the projects we cover when it comes to effective practical, geotechnical, geo-environmental and groundwater investigation. Below are just a few of the more recent projects we have completed. Please feel free to request more information on these or any other project Butler Partners have applied their expertise to.
Butler Partners undertook detailed geotechnical investigation and design, ASS assessment and detailed groundwater investigation for the Energex Building, which is a major, prestige project located in an area of deep deposits of water charged alluvial soils, overlain by variable depths of fill.
Butler Partners Pty Ltd has undertaken the full geotechnical, acid sulfate soils and contamination/site remediation assessment of the City Gate Village site (ex. Telstra site). The development is located at the corner of Wickham Street and Montpellier Road has a drained basement that Butler Partners Pty Ltd undertook the groundwater inflow/geotechnical analysis for and which is operating successfully as designed.
Butler Partners has provided geotechnical (and some geo-environmental) services for numerous building projects comprising hangers, administration buildings, simulator buildings, aircraft pavements, car parks and construction monitoring/supervision.
The Destination Brisbane Consortium is developing the Queens Wharf Brisbane site in Brisbane for a variety of purposes including casino, entertainment, hotel accommodation, commercial and public open space. The QWB development is to include two residential towers and a three level podium located between George and William Streets and Margaret and Alice Streets, with an eight level basement beneath the footprint of both towers and the associated podium level building.
Butler Partners undertook the geotechnical investigation for the Soliel development which has since completed construction and comprises a seventy-four level residential unit building, suspended over eight levels of basement car parking, with maximum excavation depth of approximately 30m.
Butler Partners Pty Ltd has undertaken the geotechnical and acid sulfate soils assessment of the full Portal Precinct area (ex. James Hardy site). The building located at the corner of Ann and Longland Streets has a drained basement that Butler Partners Pty Ltd undertook the groundwater inflow/geotechnical analysis for, which is operating successfully as designed.
Following detailed geotechnical assessment of the site and consultation with our client regarding geotechnical risk minimisation, Butler Partners were commissioned to supervise on-going quarry face stabilisation works and to provide input and design guidance on all aspects of geotechnical risk mitigation, including groundwater control, acid rock drainage, required ‘exclusion zones’, and geotechnical constraints to development and related on-going quarry operation
A US$1.7b project to develop large oil fields (100,000bpd) in the Gulf and Southern Highland Provinces of PNG. The project included the construction of a new airfield at Moro in a swamp, and onshore 175km long export pipeline laid through dense jungle and karst limestone terrain, construction of the CPF and Agogo oil processing facilities and associated infrastructure, all located in a major seismic zone.
The 400 George Street development comprises a thirty-two level commercial building, suspended over four levels of basement car parking. Butler Partners undertook the full geotechnical investigation for the project, including detailed geotechnical analysis for the basement retention systems and the geotechnical analysis and construction supervision of bored pile foundations. On-going geotechnical was provided to the builders during the basement construction process.
The Airport Link project is the largest Australian infrastructure project in Australia and Butler Partners has undertaken the geotechnical design for temporary works from the major Kedron Brooke interchange. The site (pictured) includes construction of grade separates for a major Brisbane arterial road, decline cut and cover access to deep tunnels, major temporary and permanent main road realignment.
Butler Partners undertook the detailed geotechnical investigation and design for a 40m deep, confined excavation for the recovery of full face tunnelling machines used for the construction of the Clem 7 Tunnel project. Movement monitoring conducted throughout the construction process was used to confirm the initial design/assumptions, which were modified (if required), based on the results of geological/geotechnical mapping conducted during shaft excavation.
Butler Partners Pty Ltd has undertaken the full geotechnical and acid sulfate soils assessment of both the Stage 1 and Stage 2 developments (ex. BCC Bus Depot site) and the contamination/site remediation of Stage 2. The development located between Ann and Wickham Streets from the Montpellier Road Roundabout has a drained basement that Butler Partners Pty Ltd undertook the groundwater inflow/geotechnical analysis for and which is operating successfully as designed.
The 111 Eagle Street development comprises a fifty level commercial building, suspended over six levels of basement car parking, which is to be connected into the existing Riverside Centre basement car park. Butler Partners undertook the full geotechnical investigation for the project, including detailed geotechnical analysis for the cast-insitu and diaphragm wall basement retention systems and the geotechnical analysis and construction supervision of bored pile foundations.
The old Supreme and District Courts site at 300 George Street is being redeveloped by the construction of a ninety storey residential tower, thirty-eight storey office block and twenty storey hotel, all suspended over up to seven levels of basement car parking, requiring bulk excavation to approximately 24m below existing site levels. Foundation and basement construction have recently been completed.
Butler Partners undertook an intensive contamination assessment program on the Suncorp Stadium site for Multiplex (as part of the Lang Park Joint Venture), in a short timeframe enabling the development of a remediation action plan (RAP) in time for the scheduled commencement of the bulk earthworks. The bulk earthworks were undertaken under Butler Partners’ direct supervision with minimal disruption due to the remediation requirements and were ultimately completed ahead of schedule.
Butler Partners undertook an intensive contamination assessment and remediation of the Green Square development site. Butler Partners worked with the developers to achieve strict remediation goals enabling south tower to be awarded a 5-star Green Star rating (the first commercial building in Queensland to achieve this). The site now comprises Brisbane’s largest mixed-use corporate office park accommodating more than 40,000m3 of commercial office space over two tower blocks.
