North Edge

Alice Springs, Northern Territory

About This Project

This residential subdivision fronts the Stuart Highway at the northern edge of Alice Springs. It was a unique project given the sites former life as a tourist facility that offered insight into Aboriginal cultural. Given the location of the site and the numerous surrounding sacred sites special considerations were given to respecting these areas.

The project incorporated new multi storey dwellings, new individual residences, maintaining some existing developments and converting existing accommodation into self-contained low cost dwellings.

GREENHILL provided design and contract administration services, with special consideration given to the location of the site. The Sewage system design incorporated future development such as inclusion of the adjoining town camp. Our staff worked closely with the relevant service authorities and the state government to determine a route for the rising main from the pumping station to the existing sewer network. The aim was to avoid sacred sites and to minimise disruption to traffic on the Stuart Highway and local roads. In order to achieve this we used direction drilling to insert sleeves under roads.
