Hi All, I recently obtained a property that is classified as Class S and I would like your help. Is it possible to turn a Class S site to a Class A site? How much does the site work roughly cost? When mentioned about the expensive site work for class S (over Class A), what do we refer this to? Is this the structure/engineering of the building needs to be stronger, hence cost most? or is this referring to the preparation of the site? Thanks Serendipitous Extracts from the geotech report: Strip off topsoil of approximately 100 mm. Topsoil can be re-used after screening off unsuitable materials. Considering site condition, we strongly recommend that a qualified geotechnical engineer should visit the site after stripping of the topsoil so as to confirm that all the unsuitable materials and topsoil have been removed from the site. Provide a sand Pad 700 mm from middle of the property to the rear of the road and compact as per AS3798. Compact the site up to 1.05 m depth to a Dense condition. We recommend, 150 mm for seating, 8 PSP blows for 150-450 mm, 9 PSP blows for 450-750 mm and 10 PSP blows for 750-1050 mm. As the site is in loose condition, following steps can be considered: Strip off top layer of approximately 500 mm. Boxing out of site soil and stockpile ready to replace. The depth of boxing out soil can vary based on the compacting equipment used onsite, considering site has to be in dense condition to a depth of 1.05 m from the existing surface level.o After compacting the base to dense condition, replacement of site sand previously boxed out. The maximum thickness of each backfill layer should not be more than 300 mm and each compacted layer has to achieve "Dense" condition (minium of 8 PSP blows per 300 mm penetration) until final recommended elevation is achieved. Site should be prepared in a way so that surrounding stormwater does not pass through the building envelop. Care will need to be taken when compacting in the vicinity of existing structures to avoid damage from excessive vibrations. Retaining wall is required if there is an elevation difference of 0.5 m.
