Stages 2, 3 and 4


  • Location: Goolwa North, SA 5214
  • Value: $4,000,000
  • Period: March 2016 – July 2017
  • Client: Goolwa Lifestyle Village Pty Ltd, Greenhill Engineers


AR Contracting Services completed stages 2, 3 and 4 of the Goolwa Lifestyle Village.

This project involved converting an existing caravan park into a retirement village on the water’s edge at Goolwa.

The scope of work for the project included the provision of 836 metres of watermain, 850 metres of stormwater pipe, 667 metres of sewer main and 7400m2 of road pavement. In addition, fire and irrigation mains, electrical, NBN and common service trenching were installed.


Due to the proximity of the project to existing elderly residents, construction activities had to be carefully managed to accommodate their needs. Care had to be taken on site because of the soft ground and groundwater conditions associated with working closely to existing waterways in silty soils.

The handover process to the client was staged in order to maximise the accommodation available to the residents.
