Arkadia – Defence Housing Australia – Civil Stormwater Works

Defence Housing Australia (DHA) appointed Cockram Construction to complete its landmark Arkadia apartment project in Alexandria.  The robust architecture with warm-face brickwork also echoes the history of the site, with it being the former site of the New South Wales Brickworks.

  • Excavating, laying and backfilling 40m of pipes ranging from 375mm-750mm RCP,
  • Supply and construct CDS GPT,
  • Supply and construct Ocean Protect jellyfish unit
  • Connect into Sydney Water culvert
