Future-Proof Solutions played a vital part in design content for the drilling and installation of 4 x 140mm HDPE conduits of lengths 1000m, 820m, 550m and 350m linking mainland NBN infrastructure to several of the Redland Bay Islands. FPS completed full design suites including HDD profiles and alignments, site layouts, stringing and welding areas, and hydrofracture analyses. The designs for these HDD crossings encompassed difficult operational constraints, including limited access for entry and exit pads, logistical issues with barge transportation and unloading of equipment onto the islands, and strict requirements to minimise the construction impacts on environmentally and socially significant areas.
