    Burchills Engineering Solutions was engaged by Mr Andy Packer of Foxwell Road Centre No. 1 Pty Ltd, to design the Bulk Earthworks and retaining walls, roadways, car parks, services and Stormwater treatment devices and obtain the necessary authority approvals for the Shopping Centre.

    In addition, Burchills were engaged to design the upgrades of Foxwell Road and Oakey Creek Road fronting the Shopping Centre and obtained the necessary Council approvals.

    When Andy Packer awarded the building works Contract to Mainbrace Constructions (QLD) Pty Ltd, Burchills were engaged by them to provide construction drawings, detailed Stormwater Management Plan and carry out Inspectorial Services for all Civil Works.

    “’Burchills Engineering were the one constant through the development process of Coomera East Shopping Centre. They were the first on site with Vegetation Management for clearing of the site and last on site with signing off of roadwork’s and services. Burchills designed the shopping centre earthworks to provide a platform for a family friendly neighbourhood centre with ease of movement into, within and out of the Shopping Centre the basis of the initial civil engineering.
    Coomera East Shopping Centre is a neighbourhood centre providing the rapidly growing community of Coomera a service that previously involved driving to Helensvale or having to cross the M1 to shop.

    Operational works for roadwork’s , earthworks, stormwater ,sewer and services were all prepared to the point of approval for us by Burchills with the constant being satisfactory outcomes for the development, the community and the Gold Coast City Council.

    Andrew Gregory’s ability as Project Manager to deal with the constant changes in design and come up with satisfactory outcomes provided the builders with a clear planning path with no holdups. Burchills have guided us through this development on budget, on time.”
