Soakwell Installation for
Efficient Stormwater Management

Completion Date: October 2017
Location: Mandurah, Western Australia

Project Overview:

In October 2017, our team had the opportunity to contribute to efficient stormwater management in Mandurah, Western Australia, through the meticulous installation of soakwells. This project, designed to facilitate proper stormwater dispersion and prevent flooding, involved the integration of concrete tanks and grates directly connected to the property’s downpipes, as specifically requested by the project’s builder.

Project Execution:

The primary objective was to ensure that the newly installed soakwells would seamlessly collect and manage stormwater runoff. Our approach included:

  • Concrete Tank Installation: We strategically placed robust concrete tanks underground to collect excess stormwater efficiently, choosing concrete for its durability and long-term effectiveness in stormwater management.
  • Grate Integration: The grates were carefully installed at the downpipes to catch runoff directly from the roof, requiring precise placement and alignment to ensure maximum efficiency and functionality.
  • Jackhammering for Precision: To ensure the grates fit perfectly against the wall, a bit of jackhammering was necessary. This meticulous process allowed us to achieve a snug fit, preventing any water leakage or overflow around the grate areas.
  • Height Adjustments for Finish: Some grates were intentionally left higher than the final surface level. This foresight allowed the concreter to trim them down later, ensuring they would align perfectly with the concrete ramps and pathways for an aesthetically pleasing and functional finish.

Challenges and Solutions:

The project’s success hinged on our ability to adapt to the precise demands of the installation, particularly in ensuring that the soakwells and grates would integrate seamlessly with the property’s existing and planned structures. Through careful planning, precise execution, and collaboration with the builder and concreter, we overcame these challenges, demonstrating our commitment to delivering tailored stormwater solutions.

Conclusion:

This soakwell installation project in Mandurah not only enhanced the property’s stormwater management system but also showcased our team’s capability to undertake specialized projects with specific requirements. By working closely with the builder and other contractors, we ensured that the stormwater system was not only effective but also complemented the overall design and functionality of the property’s outdoor spaces. Our dedication to precision, functionality, and aesthetics in every project continues to be a hallmark of our services.
