icubed was commisioned by Downer to design and document all of the underground pipework as well as for the Architectural design services for the upgrade to the Mareeba Waste Water Treatment Plant.

The treatment plant upgrade was required for Council to meet their environmental requirements, which they now exceed since the plant went into operation in July.

In order to ensure a smooth construction process, Building Information Modelling, BIM, was used for coordination of the design between the various disciplines across in the project which included mechanical, civil, structural and architectural.

Mareeba Shire Council recently won an innovative award at the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia, Queensland Excellence Awards for this project.

Council achieves excellence in public works
