ACE WATER

Meter Upgrade Works

The GMW Connection Project is a $2 billion irrigation modernisation project in Victoria’s Goulburn Murray Irrigation District (GMID).

The GMID covers 68,000km2 and is Australia’s most extensive irrigation network, stretching from past Swan Hill in the west to Cobram in the east and encompassing an agricultural hub known as Victoria’s Food Bowl.

The project aims to secure water savings of 429 GLpa through modernisation and rationalisation of the water supply system, including on farm irrigation efficiency activities.

Pictured is a typical site of the meter upgrade works that our ACE Water division worked on back in 2015. The old wheel is removed and replaced with remotely operated outlets. The steel ‘coffer’ dam sits in the channel and seals the channel bank, allowing the crew to remove the old wheel and install the new outlet without getting wet.

This particular installation is a 600mm outlet and will deliver up to 20 megalitres of water per day to the farm.  It is computer controlled remotely from Goulburn Murray Water’s office, some 25 km away.  The slip-gate opens and closes automatically, and adjusts the flow rate to whatever the farmer requires.

If you’d like to learn more about what Ace Water can offer you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

This project, as well as others can be seen here.

ACE CIVIL

Burwood Brickworks

Ace is proud to be part of the construction of this project which is anticipating to be the most sustainable shopping centre in the world.

We have been responsible for works including piers / piles, capping beam and shotcrete walls for the basement of the shopping centre so far, and are now looking forward to the construction of a carpark for HACER Group.

This project is an outstanding venture by Frasers Property, who have developed a whole lifestyle plan which will just grow and develop further in the future. 

The masterplan consists of a retail centre of the future, rooftop urban farm, beautiful houses, exclusive land lots, quality apartments, parkland and open space as well as the promise of connected, easy living. It’s extremely hard not to be excited about this project from the team at Frasers.

The location has its own history as the largest brick manufacturer in Victoria in the 70’s, then being sold off in the late 80’s which left the site unused. Proposals for the site have come and gone over the years, but is now secured to be ‘a precinct like no other’.
