Whitehaven Coal

Client: Whitehaven Coal Narabri
Design: Shotcrete, Soil Nails and Rock Bolts
Area: 10,000m²
Completion: March 2009

RIX were engaged to hand excavate, form up and create new terraces on a failing cliff below an existing house.

Our Geotechnical team undertook the stabilisation works installing 6m rock bolts, 5m mini piles and structurally reinforced shotcrete, whilst our Construction team formed up the shotcrete retaining wall to allow increased area for the garden terraces. Next the Dry Spray team displayed their magic and sculptured the shotcrete into the artificial sandstone finish. Finally the project was complemented with professional landscaping, featuring plantings and natural timbers.
