SYDNEY METRO CITY & SOUTHWEST –
CENTRAL STATION MAIN WORKS PROJECT (CSM)
VFT were contracted by Laing O’Rourke for preliminary works and construction phase surveying for Sydney Metro work at Central Station in 2018. Adopting the existing 3D survey control network, VFT extended this throughout the entire station and adjacent work sites.
Accurate as-built surveys of existing structures and rail infrastructure, including sub-surface and above ground utilities, were routinely delivered to enable temporary works and the final project designs. Supporting the Sydney Metro work at Central Station, VFT used innovative and cost-effective solutions, including intricate traditional surveying and extensive 3D laser scanning for both rail and engineering requirements.
A significant achievement was the off-site fabrication of the new Northern Concourse roof.
The roof structure was preassembled at Kurri Kurri in the Hunter Valley, as-built surveyed and referenced, then dismantled, transported to site and accurately reassembled using the survey reference marks to position each roof component.
HOW DID VFT HELP?
By providing combined rail and engineering surveying expertise to the project, the client was able to reduce expenditure and avoid on-boarding two separate surveying SME’s to service both sectors. VFT provided a dedicated team to the project, retaining critical staff to manage the ongoing surveying requirements.
