Earthworks and Drainage
Our engineers see the nuances in earthworks and drainage from an early stage, with the experience and high precision skills gained from having worked on technically challenging race track and driving course projects being applied to all our projects.
We review the existing ground of a site and use topographical surveys to produce new proposed surface levels that fit the requirements of the project and optimise the existing topography.
Earthworks optimisation and levels strategy
With all our projects, we aim to reduce the amount of cut and fill by modelling as close to the existing topography as possible, thereby reducing the amount of earth needing to be taken in and out of the site and reducing cost as a byproduct. We can create isopachyte (heat map) drawings to help demonstrate this to clients, showing the proposed new levels versus existing.
We are in contact with drainage experts and specialists to provide state-of-the-art drainage across a range of projects. In our designs we consider local rainfall data and the natural site topography to ensure that the appropriate products are used, and we strategically use earthworks to create items such as basins for outfalls.
FIA Grade 2 Track
Driven created a basic 3D model of a conceptual track design in order to provide an estimate for cut and fill, considering the levels of the track, run-off areas and buildings. Our track design team and engineering team worked together to take the outcomes from the early engineering studies to improve the overall site design, such as moving the rotation of the pit building and moving the placement of a lake.
