Redbank Motorway Estate

Client: Goodman Group

Year: 2019 – ongoing

Location: Redbank, QLD

Team: James McDonnell



Redbank Motorway Estate is a large-scale multi-stage industrial development. It is one of South-East Queensland’s leading Industrial Developments and strategically sits close to three major motorway exchanges, providing easy access to major infrastructure.

Goodman Limited engaged Orion Spatial Solutions as the Principal Surveyor for the project. Orion has provided a range of services and solutions for the project through the design, construction and development phases.

For the design phase, Orion conducted a Site Detail Survey utilising traditional survey and Airborne LiDAR technology. We also completed extensive Underground Service Location, providing certainty of service location to assist design consultants.

The site has exchange access with a bordering motorway which required design consideration for future needs. Orion utilised our Mobile LiDAR technology to capture motorway on and off ramp survey data to assist with design. This technology creates a more comprehensive survey than traditional methods, capturing a higher density of data. Our Mobile LiDAR platforms minimise surveyors working on the road, providing a safer work environment and reduces the requirement for traffic management and minimises disruption to traffic flow. Mobile LiDAR is a very cost-effective survey solution, allowing us to survey distances quickly.

The project involved design of stormwater outlets into the Brisbane River, which adjoins the site. Orion undertook Bathymetric Survey of the riverbed to assist engineering design of the stormwater system.

During the construction phase, Orion provided Engineering Services to the Building and Civil Contractors covering building and civil setout, survey control survey and as-constructed surveys. Orion also undertook Volume Surveys at various stages of construction to accurately quantify bulk earthworks claims for the client. We utilised our Aerial LiDAR and UAV technology to complete these surveys to minimise disruption to site work, capture the data quickly and minimise interaction between surveyors and working machinery.

Orion also provided titling advice for the staging of the development, assisted with obtaining development approvals and prepared Reconfiguration of Lot layouts. We also consulted with Government Agencies to obtain Road Closure and Opening approvals which was vital to the timing and viability of the project.

As Principal Surveyor, Orion also undertook Cadastral Surveys for the project, preparing plans of subdivision to Department of Resources requirements.

Orion was also responsible for development compliance at the completion of each stage, preparing and managing plan sealing applications with Ipswich City Council.
