The Village People Deserve Only the Best - EJ

While national sports teams are in intensive training all over the world readying for the imminent Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, the eager teams at EJ are in full flight supplying product for the extensive infrastructure necessary for such a major project as the Games.

A village housing athletes is one of the key components of this important construction effort and prime developer Grocon, has been charged with the redevelopment of the expansive 7 hectare site known as the Southport Parklands. It's as much about urban renewal for post-Games as it is about temporarily housing athletes. So infrastructure product has to be able to stand the test of time and not be just a quick and easy disposable fix. Once complete, the village will consist of 1252 permanent dwellings (1170 apartments and 82 town-houses) but during the Games, will accommodate 6,600 athletes.

Infrastructure work is being provided by a long-term customer of EJ, Christopher Contractors. The inventory for this part of the Gold Coast project includes various grates and covers: HEELPROOF™ Grates in both ductile iron and galvanized mild steel; LA60B and LA60D sewer and stormwater covers; A66B 600x600 concrete infill covers and Stainless Steel decorative edged covers.

Earlier in the programme, EJ worked closely with Paul Coombs, Construction Coordination Contracts Officer and the Gold Coast Energex team to manufacture a standard Energex 2-part cover and frame for electrical cable joining pits throughout this vast site.
