Road construction and maintenance has always been our core business. Our experienced team of skilled operators and ground staff work on a wide range of projects from small subdivisions to major highways. This work involves elements of many services AWC provides including:
- road rehabilitation
- underground services
- concrete structures
- shoulders and verges
Subdivision construction is a large part of our business. We have a long and successful track record in constructing residential, rural and industrial subdivisions. These range in size from a single lot to multi-0stage developments and involve elements of many AWC services including road construction, earthworks, underground services and concrete structures.
AWC is the only company based in Tasmania offering road rehabilitation through the stabilisation or modification of subgrades and pavement gravel using specialised machinery. Road rehabilitation involves introducing additional material, such as cement, lime, gravels, blended cement, bitumen or other chemicals, to improve the original material. This process is better for the environment and provides a cost saving so it has become sought after, particularly by councils.
Our road rehabilitation services include:
- lime stabilisation
- cement stabilisation
- granular stabilisation
- reclamation/milling of existing pavements.
AWC has a long and successful track record with the construction of underground services. These projects have seen the successful construction of small and large diameter heavy industrial pipelines with major pump stations and river intakes and discharges. We have skilled and knowledgeable teams that have delivered sewer, stormwater, waste and recycled water projects to local and State Government, Australian and Water Authority Standards.
AWC has also worked with service authorities in the installation of:
- sewer, water and stormwater
- pump stations
- power and communication
