Strata was engaged by Bovis Lend Lease to develop field based methodologies for the testing of soil depth and rock strength over rollout areas of Stage 2 of the National Broadband Network in Tasmania. Strata developed rapid field based methodologies incorporating ground penetrating radar (GPR) as well as portable NATA calibrated rock strength testing units Read more about National Broadband Network[…]
Modelling and concept design for stormwater collection and treatment from stockpile areas at the rail head and port associated with the Fingal Coal Project. Water balance and run-off modelling has been completed and concept designs are being produced based upon a lagoon treatment system at the rail head and screening and land application treatment at Read more about Fingal Coal Project – Coal Stockpile Runoff Management[…]
Strata commissioned by CB&M Group to provide concept design for Water Sensitive Urban Design elements for the Drivers Run subdivision. Strata produced deign of all elements of stormwater reticulation and treatment for the multi-stage subdivision and involves ongoing involvement throughout the construction process.
Strata has been engaged to research feasibility and concept design associated with treating multiple effluent sources in a central lagoon based system for reuse as irrigation supply on farming land. This project has the potential to solve multiple effluent treatment problems on the island, whilst at the same time creating a new council asset and Read more about Flinders Island Effluent Treatment and Reuse Project[…]
Assessing field training area for potential contamination in Northern Tasmania. Groundwater bores were installed and soil samples collected for analysis. Remedial options and cost/benefits have been submitted for consideration.
Benalla Rural City Council commissioned Strata to investigate various physico-chemical soil parameters for expansion of the Benalla Landfill Facility, Victoria. Strata provided investigation and reporting of soil tri-axial permeability, cation exchange, Atterberg limits and particle size analysis for planned expansion areas.
Strata commissioned by the Tasmanian State Government to conduct ongoing environmental monitoring of a re-developed housing project which contained a former underground storage tank (UST). Strata installed two new groundwater monitoring bores and is conducting ongoing soil, groundwater and air quality monitoring on a quarterly basis.
Modelling and detailed design for mine effluent collection and treatment using lagoon based systems. The project scope involves treating effluent to a level compatible with reuse for irrigation on nearby farming land. This will involve the development of an ongoing environmental monitoring program looking at the effect of ongoing effluent application to ground and surface Read more about Fingal Coal Project – Mine Effluent Treatment[…]
Flinders Island Renewable Energy Pty Ltd contracted Strata to conduct a preliminary geotechnical assessment of areas underlying a proposed wind turbine in a remote area of Bass Strait. Strata used light aircraft and man-portable machinery to characterise geotechnical conditions and conduct sampling for laboratory analysis and made recommendations which informed engineering design of the turbine Read more about Flinders Island Wind Turbine[…]
Working with the proprietors and Flinders Island Council to investigate upgrading existing lagoon infrastructure and reusing effluent for application to nearby farming land under appropriate effluent reuse guidelines. Planning of site investigation and ongoing environmental monitoring required to comply with this activity.
