WGE team mark 100 month milestone with the opening of Elizabeth Quay

Wood & Grieve Engineers (WGE) is proud to have played a role in the successful public opening of Elizabeth Quay. A three-week celebration following the grand opening has seen thousands of visitors experiencing the new inlet, island, promenades, public art and water playground.

With just over 100 months of work on the project and over 45 staff involved since 2007, WGE has provided civil, structural, underground power, hydraulics, electrical and mechanical engineering services for the feasibility, design and construction phases.

WGE’s involvement included:

  • Relocation of twin 2.25m diameter main drain pipes
  • 800mm and 400mm diameter water mains, adjustments to sewer mains and utility services
  • New underground Western Power high voltage city supply access chamber and conduit system
  • Extensions and adjustments of major roads, Riverside Drive and William Street, with connections to the freeway including traffic and street light relocation
  • Promenade slabs and retaining wall structures
  • Structural foundations for public art

WGE is proud to be part of Perth’s continued transformation, reconnecting Perth city with the Swan River.
