Heritage Golf & Country Club – St. John Golf Course Heritage Avenue, Chirnside Park
This Jack Nicklaus designed Golf Course is located in the heart of the Yarra Valley and is listed in Australia’s Top 100 golf courses.
We were engaged by the golf course construction contractor to undertake 3-dimensional setout, earthwork volume and surface area computations, and to locate both the above and below ground infrastructure assets during construction.
At the end of construction, we were also required to produce individual Hole 1 - 18 Plans in both electronic and hard copy formats. These plans detailed the constructed edges of the Tees, Bunkers, Fairway, and Green, together with the Drainage infrastructure for each hole. We also provided electronic plans of the irrigation infrastructure, which was then used by the contractor to import into golf course management software for the electronic management of each individual sprinkler on the entire golf course.

Killara Park Estate Vineyard.
Warburton Highway, Seville East
We have been involved in the Killara Park Estate (originally known as Northridge Estate) vineyard development since its inception in 1996, and throughout several stages of its further development.
Initially we undertook a feature and level survey of the entire site and designed the overall site vineyard layout in conjunction with the vineyard consultant’s requirements. This included computations for vineyard row lengths, number of posts, number of vines, and the area for each section of the vineyard so that appropriate orders could be placed prior to construction.
We then undertook the setout of the vineyard end rows and internal posts to provide sufficient on site control for the post contractor during the construction phases of the various vineyard sections.
We were also required to prepare an Overall Vineyard Management Plan detailing the varieties and rootstock type used throughout the various sections of the vineyard.
In recent times we have been involved with the preparation of various plans to accompany the successful town planning applications for the operation of a “Cellar Door Sales Facility” , "Restaurant Facility and associated car parking” and most recently for the use & construction of a “Manager's Residence" on the site.
We have also been involved in many other vineyard developments throughout the Yarra Valley, with some of these being Levantine Hill Estate (Coldstream & Gruyere), Boat O’Craigo (Healesville), Oakridge (Coldstream), Helens Hill Estate (Lilydale) & Tibooburra Vineyard (Yellingbo) and many others..
School Building Redevelopment Projects
We have undertaken building construction setout of gridlines, building corners and levels for school redevelopment projects at Upper Yarra S.C.(Yarra Junction), Box Forest S.C., Dromana P.S., Broadford S.C., Gilmore College (Footscray), New Gisborne P.S., Wandin North P.S. and Oak Park P.S.
Urban Medium Density Subdivisions
We have been involved in medium density unit development planning applications & subdivisions involving Owners Corporations (formerly Body Corporate) within the urban environment. This includes the development of units located on different levels (multi-storey buildings) & the preparation of accompanying cross-section lot diagrams.
Rural Subdivision & Re-Subdivision
Being based in the Yarra Valley rural fringe of Melbourne, rural development & subdivision/re-subdivision is our specialty. Many rural land holdings contain multiple lot entitlements, which may be able to be re-arranged/Re-subdivided for better management or use of the land.
ADA Tree Car Park Redevelopment
The Ada Tree is an ancient mountain ash located in state forest between Powelltown & Noojee and is one of the largest known flowering trees in the world. It is thought to be over 300 years old, with a trunk circumference of 15m, and it currently stands at approximately 76 m tall (originally about 120m).
We undertook a feature survey of the existing car park and surrounding densely vegetated forest area, to enable the design of a new car park & bus turn around area which would avoid the significant vegetation features of the site.
We then re-visited the site and setout the location of the newly designed car park and bus turn around area to provide site control for Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE). This enabled DSE staff to ensure the under storey vegetation removal was confined to the new design areas only, leaving the areas outside of the design footprint relatively unaffected.
We then provided additional setout control points for the construction contractor during the physical construction of this new car parking and bus turn-around facility.
