  • Commercial Project: 7/11 Convenience Store 990 Wanneroo Road, Wanneroo
    Plumbing Design, Stormwater, Hydraulics Design, Fire Services

    PJW & A provided the Hydraulic Services design and documentation for a new 7/11 Convenience store at 990 Wanneroo road, Wanneroo.

    The Convenience store is the first stage of the three lot development approved for the original site. The scope of design works included sanitary and trade waste drainage design, hot and cold water and stormwater drainage.

    The site has considerable fall which required careful planning of paving levels and grate locations. Another factor was that the rear of the site required vehicular access to the adjacent lot which was proposed to be a fast food drive through.

    Modification of the standard hydraulic services template supplied by the 7/11 was necessary to ensure compliance with Western Australian requirements. These were incorporated into our final design drawings which included service set outs and slab penetration details.

    The resultant design documentation packaged allowed for the construction to be completed within the short time frame allowed.
