Case studies

Humes has extensive experience in the manufacture and supply of precast and prestressed solutions for some of the most significant road and rail infrastructure projects around Australia. Check the links below or to the left to see case studies of some of these projects.

Brisbane’s subtropical climate is perfect for life in the great outdoors. 

To handle peak rainfall in a subtropical city, an efficient stormwater network is a must. In the residential estate built around the Greg Norman designed Brookwater Golf Course, Humes has created a custom solution.

A wrapped StormTrap® system was chosen as a water sump solution because it could be adapted to meet complex requirements.

HumeSlab® bridge decking demonstrated its adaptability by catering to complex curves and non-standard shapes for three cantilever bridges.

Mooney Mooney Creek Bridge, NSW

A precast arch solution was selected to replace an ageing corrugated metal pipe, to provide a 100-year design life, and to minimise road closure time.  Read more about Humes precast concrete solutions by downloading the brochure below.

Denham Court Road Upgrade, Sydney – Gas main protection slabs

An innovative precast concrete solution was developed for gas main protection, significantly improving safety and installation time.

Koombooloomba dam bridge with the HumeDeck™ modular bridge system

The HumeDeck™ system is a modular bridging solution suitable for installation on an existing substructure, as required for this project, or as a complete new bridge system of precast concrete piles, decks, abutments and headstocks. 

Federation Park, Warwick - HumeGard® water solutions

The Southern Downs Regional Council engaged Humes to provide a stormwater quality improvement device (SQID) to improve the quality of stormwater discharged to the Condamine River, an important waterway feeding into the Murray-Darling Basin. Download the case study below to learn why two HumeGard® Gross Pollutant Traps (GPTs) were the perfect solution.

Glenugie Upgrade, Pacific Highway - Precast arches

A customised arch structure solution built to withstand significantly high fill loads and minimise environmental impacts for local fauna was a key component of the Pacific Highway Glenugie Upgrade project.

Scarborough Beach, Perth - Trenchless technology with jacking pipes

To minimise disruption and safety concerns related to this high traffic and popular pedestrian area, trenchless technology in the form of Humes’ J and S jacking pipes were installed along this 350m+ pipeline providing a supplementary piped outfall system.

Grand Prix, Melbourne - Custom-made precast concrete road safety barriers

Specially designed interlocking components provide a more seamless, connected section of safety barriers. The self-compacting concrete ensures the final result is much smoother whilst maintaining strength and durability.

Westconnex Kingsgrove, Sydney - Custom-made DN3600 precast concrete pits for jacking pipe installation

The project required a fast, durable and accurate solution allowing for the installation of jacking pipes into a large pit while removing the potential risks associated with an in-situ concrete installation.
