The major focus of this major assignment is on civil earthworks and the footings required for the proposed structure that your group has selected.
1.Most importantly in this major assignment, you are to focus on Work Health Safety (WHS) issues that could be encountered on this proposed construction site.  More details will be covered during the lecture..
2.Your group will further detail the specific machinery you envisage will be used to undertake the earthworks for your structure.  You are not designing the structure, or the building proposed, rather you are an earthworks contractor, carrying out the major earthworks, that is required to build the proposed project.  These machines could range from major earthwork machinery through to hand held devices, required for detailed earthworks.  
3.These first two areas (1) & (2) above, must be covered in your Major Report.  These are the only mandatory areas to be included in your report.
4.Your groups Major Report, will detail in addition to the above two items, how the Civil earthworks could be carried out.  You are to describe how the excavation could be done and determine an estimation of the earthworks quantities and possible costs involved.  This is similar to what you have already done in Building 2, and will be doing in Estimating 1 next semester.
5.Also you will need to detail any temporary or permanent retaining wall structures, associated with the earthworks, required for this project.
6.You also need to consider a safety plan (Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS)) for a particular aspect of the project.  
7.Also you also need to consider environmental issues such as Sediment Ponds and Erosion & Sediment controls.  Also you need to anticipate possible local community environmental concerns.  South Creek is in the vicinity of Oran Park, which is already polluted.
8.Basically you are considering a development at this precinct, as if you were the earthworks contractor, constructing it and all that that entails.  Assume that Council approval has been granted for your proposal.  It is most important you do not contact the Local Council or Landcom directly.  We will be giving you sufficient resources to complete this project without the need to contact LG Council or Landcom themselves.
