TDK has excelled at laying fibre optic cable across Australia, establishing records for the greatest length laid in one day (38.7km), and achieving the highest average length laid (28km/day). TDK have the skills and equipment to carry out this work, and complete it within time and budget constraints. We have laid cable in places as diverse as Warrnambool on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, to the Barossa Valley in South Australia, and through the deserts of the Northern Territory, traversing the region that hosts the famous Finke Desert Race, which is some of the most hostile terrain in the country.
TDK Civil has built over 250 mobile telecommunication towers for various clients and carriers throughout Australia. Tower compounds range from metro locations to more isolated locations in rural outback Australia where the nearest concrete plant and quarry were over 4 hours away. Civil works to complete each tower compound includes perimeter security fencing, underground earthing system, power and comms runs of up to 1km long and various types of concrete pad and pier footings.
Pit and Pipe
Linking communication to various sites has resulted in TDK Civil undertaking a vast range of pit and pipe works ranging from greenfield sites to heavily congested inner city works. TDK Civil has worked alongside various freeway upgrades, trenched down Elizabeth Street and Swanston St in the heart of Melbourne, linked sporting venues such as the MCG and Canberra Stadium and even built links around Alice Springs and various country towns around Australia.
TDK Civil has completed numerous projects where underground horizontal bores are required. They range from a simple single comms pipe under an existing pavement/driveway to more complex bores including crossing Queens Bridge in front of the Art Centre where multiple existing services were present.
The Queens Bridge bore crossing had a number of obstacles and challenges which TDK Civil overcame with its experienced team. Due to the number of existing services extensive research was done to locate services. Once all the services were identified we were able to determine the best possible route for the proposed bore. The works were performed at night to eliminate the number of vehicle traffic and also pedestrian traffic in and around our works.
