URBNSURF Melbourne is the first man-made surf park facility in Australia. The facility features a 22,000m2 (200m long by 190m wide) fresh-water lagoon to offer surfers regular and consistent waves all year round.
Veris was engaged as Principal Surveyor for the early works package and subsequent stages of the project, providing a range of surveying services for civil and structural elements, buildings, facilities and landscaping.
The scope of services provided by Veris included:
- Civil & Structural Set-out Surveys
- Feature Surveys
- Site Establishment
- Survey Control
- As-built Surveys
- Data Management.
Parallel to involvement in the physical aspects of the civil survey, was the accurate and time-sensitive interpretation and application by Veris of complicated civil and structural models and designs, used to develop data sets and inform the project design and timeline. Through rigorous data management, Veris engaged in site transformation of all design data into one federated model, and ensured bathymetry design models reflected survey set-out data collected in the field.
This approach enabled greater collaboration between the Surveyor, Data Manager and client, utilising detailed quality checking to improve upon design and construction and ensure the best possible project outcome.
