Decmil was awarded a construction contract for the Elizabeth Quay Inlet Excavation and Revetments Project. The project formed part of the Elizabeth Quay Project that was constructed in the City of Perth. Elizabeth Quay is a landmark waterfront development that connects Perth city with the Swan River to create a dynamic entertainment and leisure precinct.

The scope of works undertaken by Decmil included excavation of the inlet (approx. 140,000m3), construction of scour protection, island revetments, minor drainage and a small boat ramp.

The scope of work also included removal of existing jetty sheet piles and tubular piles as well as excavation and removal of the old river wall/jetty (heritage), circulation of water to manage water quality, maintenance and removal of the silt curtains. There was an emphasis on reuse and recycling of all materials where possible throughout the project.

Delivering solutions.

We are committed to outstanding project management and delivery regardless of the scale or the intricacy of the work.
