Shorehaven Development Project

Located in Western Australia, Shorehaven is a large residential development that will feature approximately 3,000 dwellings nestled on the pristine Alkimos coastline, also known as Perth’s best swimming beaches. Created by Award-winning property group, Peet Limited, Shorehaven’s master-planned design maximises the natural features of the area and supports the local environment – through parks, open spaces and look-outs. The overall site area is approximately 250 Ha.

Douglas Partners’ involvement started in 2008 with the initial geotechnical investigations for the planning of the development. From the early stages, the project not only presented a diverse range of requirements and testing methods but also challenged the teams in their ability to manage and coordinate large scale investigations.
With residential buildings constructed across stage 1 now, the DP Team also provided support and advice during the supervision of earthworks (Earthworks contractors: Vincent & Co) and post construction testing. Shorehaven development transformed a large dune landscape into a highly desirable coastal living in a growing area of Perth’s northern suburbs.
Over the course of three years, DP has provided:
  • Over 200 test pits and PSP test locations to determine the subsurface conditions and collect samples for laboratory testing;
  • Risk assessment for Acid Sulphate Soils;
  • Over 60 Cone Penetration tests (CPT);
  • Site classification and foundation designs;
  • Permeability testing for stormwater management purposes;
  • Assessment of the depth and strength of limestone;
  • Earthworks inspections and testing;
  • Continuing consultation with engineers;
  • Karst feature risk assessment.
