After natural disasters, or large storm cells, it is not uncommon for us to get calls to help move debris, repair roads, build bridges and restore areas back to their regular level of function.
RDS has the ability to meet client demands either with its own resources or where necessary, supplemented with key relationship partners. We are able to select a specialised team with functional project experience specific to the task. This ensures the best available front-line staff working in conjunction with key support staff to deliver your projects successfully within time and budget.
RDS has worked with many city councils and understand how to best work with government branches and any additional regulatory bodies. For example, RDS has successfully completed the construction of a functional and aesthetically pleasing retaining wall at the Queens Park Bowls Club to ensure the safety of the patrons and longevity of the QLD Heritage Listed Queens Park property. All construction was carried out under strict guidelines whilst the lawn bowl greens were still in operation.
A prime example of our emergency repair work is the flood restoration construction project RDS undertook for the Lockyer Valley Regional Council (LVRC) back in 2011. The destruction we were presented with was enormous and the knowledge and experience we had gained in our 35 plus years of operation was truly tested. During the initial emergency period, RDS undertook rectification works to over 70 roads and 10 bridges. The restoration works ranged greatly in scope, we had everything from simple table drain clean outs and land slippage repairs to full road reconstruction. The relationship between LVRC and RDS was one in which road construction skills and knowledge were mutually recognised, this allowed the works to be undertaken at an efficient pace to provide a stable and constant team of skilled personnel on site for the duration of the works. RDS remained a preferred contractor by LVRC in the continuing repair and replacement of the damaged infrastructure until project completion almost three years later.
