March-April 2017 proved to be a challenge to many construction teams in Sydney as they were faced with unseasonal rain. The Sydney Morning Herald called it “The Wettest, gloomiest March for decades”.

For a boutique waterfront development, it was a boggy, muddy nightmare. After the 10th day of heavy rain with no end in sight, digging down in clay soil to put up pile sheets proved impossible.

Faced with a difficult challenge, the developers contacted JWA and the first lot of DuraBase mats were loaded on the next available semi-trailer. Installed within a day, the only ground preparation needed was a layer of plastic lining to prevent the mats being sucked down by the mud.
