Hillside Pool & Deck Construction

Palm Beach, NSW

Between September 2005 & November 2007, SCE were involved in the geotechnical site investigation, footing design and construction inspections of a wet edge pool and timber deck proposed behind the existing house on a sloping site at Palm Beach, NSW.

SCE were initially engaged to prepare a comprehensive geotechnical report for submission as part of the DA application to Pittwater Council. The investigation involved detailed site mapping, determining the geological model of the site, assessing the site hazards & risks in accordance with the Pittwater Council Policy and determining the geotechnical parameters for design of footings and other items.

SCE were then engaged in 2007 to review the initial excavations and advise on the associated stability issues, as well as identify & confirm the suitability of the foundation strata for the pool piers and footings.
