SGQ Coral Coast Update – July 2024

Project Spotlight  

Barolin Esplanade (Coral Cove Estate)  

The SGQ Bundaberg crew have been dodging golf balls from adjacent course while expertly delivering Stages 1 & 2 of the Coral Cove Ocean Estate for Devcore Property Group. Currently awarded works require complete construction of 80 residential lots as part of the future 1200 lot master planned estate (including reconfigured 18-hole golf course, retail center and tourism precinct).  

The project crew (led by Paul Andrew, Jason Mcguirk and Shane Smith) have progressed works well in the first half of 2024, including all underground infrastructure, subgrade treatments, pavements, retaining walls, permanent sediment basins and landscaping to look on track for completion of current scope in July

Bonna Road Upgrade  

Commencing in March 2024, for Bundaberg Regional Council, the project led by Paul Andrew and Simon McDonald, has progressed well into Stage 2 of 4. The Road Widening and Shoulder Improvement works is located on the outskirts of Bundaberg, off Childers road and will be a much needed upgrade for local residents.   

The crew have achieved great results thus far, negotiating traffic management, plenty of local resident interaction as well as proximity with overhead power and underground infrastructure. Current Scope is on schedule for completion in September 2024.    

Duckpond Road Causeway   

SGQ Commenced initial works in June, completing clearing, early earthworks and base slab preparations.  

The project is being completed for Bundaberg Regional Council and includes the much-needed upgrade of the existing low crossing causeway to an improved box culvert crossing for future flood resilience.  

Washpool Creek Pedestrian Bridge  

Completed in April for Road Tek, the concrete pedestrian bridge and footpath works resulted in a positive outcome for SGQ, receiving great feedback on completion. 

In Other News  

While completing projects throughout 2024, the Bundaberg crew have also been working away on establishment of our Coral Coast Depot.  

Located centrally within the Coral Coast region (Low Street – Kensington) the plan includes a functional Office, Temporary Accommodation Facilities, Storage Shed with ample additional space for Plant Storage, Equipment/Material Laydown and Car Parking.   

The investment in the depot provides a solid base for SGQ’s future activities and work capacity, further promoting our already strong local commitment to the region.   

Structural Construction of the 12m x 12m Office Block is now complete, with fit out occurring in July. The sites initial storage structure (18m x 12m) is now finished ready for use.
