Case Study 1

Moonta Street: Adelaide City Council

Revamp of Moonta Street by the State Government and Adelaide City Council (ACC) including new granite pavers, more outdoor dining areas, new trees, creative lighting and more shade. A push to attract more tourists and boost local business supported this multi-million-dollar investment located in the heart of Chinatown.

CAPEX: AUD 4.2M   |   DATES: 2019   |   LOCATION: Adelaide, SA 

Capisce QS were engaged by ACC to carry out a preliminary estimate on paving upgrade works to Moonta Street, between Grote Street and Gouger Street.

Capisce QS provided ACC with a preliminary estimate that included multiple scope options with risks and consequent contingencies required for each. Capisce QS identified potential savings for Adelaide City Council by providing pavement tile supply rates for local and overseas sourced products to help support ACC project budget.

Case Study 2

Sturt Highway Estimates: DPTI

Upgrade and widening of Sturt Highway at Eudunda Road intersection and Dutton Mail road intersection to support increased traffic movements. The project involved road widening, safety bar installation, upgraded guard rails, line marking, tree removal and lighting upgrade. 

CAPEX: AUD 1M   |   DATES: 2018  |   LOCATION: Adelaide, SA 

Capisce QS were engaged by the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) to provide a detailed estimate in relation to the upgrade works proposed to the two intersections. 

The estimating undertaken informed the Department on the implications of differing sequencing and design solutions.

Case Study 3

Victor Harbour Road / Goolwa Road Left Turn Deceleration Lane: DPTI

Widening of existing left turn deceleration lane with additional separation to correct driver behaviour and limit congestion.

CAPEX: AUD 0.4M   |   DATES: 2019 |   LOCATION: Adelaide, SA 

Capisce QS were engaged by the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) to provide a concept estimate including optioneering in relation to the widening works. 

Capisce QS’s specialist industry experience and knowledge enabled early design phase estimating to support the department with the preparation of a robust project budget and the confidence to proceed with further design development.
