Homemaker Centre Bendigo Harvey Norman Property is the landlord of the Bendigo Homemaker Centre in regional Victoria. Over time, heavy rains caused erosion and partial collapse of the earthen bank along three sides of its property border, creating a potential erosion hazard as well as the obvious WHS issue to the roadway, assets and people below. Ozy Services was briefed by Harvey Norman Property to scrape the loose soil from the embankment; to stabilise the 60° slope with an application of geotextile matting; to excavate and construct an agricultural drain with a sock and pipework at the base of the slope; then to design and construct a light retaining wall to run the full 500 metres of the bank to contain any further erosion.
