BOX HILL CEMETERY – UNDERPINNING WORKS
Ivy were engaged alongside Lovell Chen to undertake staged underpinning to the Columbarium within the Box Hill Cemetery.
Works were completed successfully with respect to the sensitive nature of the site and involved primary stage remedial work to the building including underpinning, stormwater drainage & new paving around as well as temporary engineered propping and supports to the existing structural elements. With the discovery of existing partial underpins to the footings Ivy worked closely with the engineer to revise & adapt our staging plans to complete the works within the original program and budget.
The project required high levels of management and planning to ensure works could be completed with minimal impact on the cemetery, scheduled events & surrounding grave sites.
