“Rob Carr was an integral part of the Alliance’s bid-winning strategy to change the construction methodology of the stormwater drain from open trench excavations to a trenchless solution. We worked closely with Rob Carr to utilise their specialist knowledge of microtunnelling in the development of our winning design, which ultimately delivered a value for money solution for the client with significantly reduced environmental and community impacts. This collaboration with Rob Carr continued through the project delivery phase, which resulted in more effective project communications and increased productivity.
Rob Carr faced numerous challenges such as working in close proximity to underground services and live traffic, constrained site access and hidden/buried objects that delayed tunnelling progress. The team always persevered and stepped up to the demands of these complex works; and would often come up with useful innovations and practical solutions in the face of project challenges.”
