Swanbank Stage 1B Cell 7

Appointed by Redmondis as principal contractor, Teneo delivered all works on site including civil earthworks, geosynthetic liner interface and configuration as well as the pipework. Despite a live creek diversion with in excess of 50,000m3 of additional unsuitable materials, 250,000m3 of rock drill and blast and unseasonably wet conditions the project still finished on time. The Teneo team found innovation and value adds for this project through changes to the design and construct methodology. Changes include but not limited to Creek diversions, Culvert structures, clay bunds and rock placement over liner techniques.
