Project Description

The Torrens Road to Torrens River project is part of the North South Corridor Project and will deliver a 4km non-stop section of one of Adelaide’s major transport corridors and deliver improved safety and traffic efficiencies along the route.

Client Needs

The project operates in accordance with a Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) to ensure practices are compliant and that noise and vibration are managed within the Noise and Vibration sub-plan.

Resonate's involvement

Resonate has been involved in a number of stages across this project, including concept phase noise and vibration services, preparation of the Construction Noise and Vibration Management Framework (CNVMF) and preliminary Noise Mitigation Plan (NMP), inspection and design of facade treatments for 80 residential properties, various investigations and studies, facade treatment implementation scope and cost reporting. Resonate also assisted DPTI in carrying out the tender assessments for the concept design. The T2T Alliance engaged Resonate to continue the provision of noise and vibration services for both the management of construction impacts and design of operational noise and vibration mitigation measures. This has included noise surveys and long-term vibration measurement at multiple sites, design of noise walls and inspection and facade treatment design for an additional 300 residential properties. Significant community and stakeholder engagement has occurred on this project.

Outcome

The project provided an opportunity to seek a new approach to meet the demand for cost efficiency and timeliness, treatment consistency and quality assurance; saving the alliance approximately $1m in consulting fees.

Innovation

To effectively deliver this project, Resonate developed an online site inspection tool, thought to be the first of its kind, that allows consultants to add data on site and automatically generate condition reports and treatment specifications from that data.
