    ​Hi All,

    I am currently looking at rates for K&C Renewals for accurate budgeting purposes and bench marking. Does anyone have rates ($lm) for B2 Kerb and Channel Renewal Projects in built up areas?

    Ideally I'm looking for rates associated with works completed in accordance Vic Roads Standards However I am also keen to hear what standards other Councils adopt for Quality purposes and rates associated with the works at the implemented standards.. All inclusive of the following:

    - Service Locating
    - Removal and Disposal of existing K&C and Asphalt
    - Excavation and Prep (75mm or 100mm Class 2 FCR Base compacted to 95% Modified)
    - Installation of 100mm Agi Drain
    - Construction of New K&C
    - Backfill and Compaction front of Kerb (Class 2 FCR compacted to 98% Modified)
    - Reinstatement of Asphalt
    - Reinstatement of Topsoil (Back of Kerb)

    Any information of Crossover costs would also be appreciated 125mm thick

    I'm interested to know what width everyone excavates in front of Kerb? We struggled to get 98% Mod unless we excavate 1000mm in front and utilise a DPU or Roller to Compact

    Thanks in advance

    HI Neil,

    ​Brownfield rates for Kerb at Campaspe is sitting at $457 as an average over the last two financial years that we have enough data on (17/18 and 18/19). All but Agi Drain is included out of the list of items you mentioned.

    The standard road cut out for Campaspe is 700mm in front of kerb unless greater cut out Is required for road cross fall grades. We don't put as much emphasis on reaching that compaction % as the amount of rock going back in is a better pavement than exists.

    hope that helps a little.

    Thanks Shannon this does help.

    Are Brownfield K&C works completed in-house or outsourced to contractors?

    Do you have rates related to road renewals ​300mm pavement design, 40/30mm asphalt?

    Thanks Again
    Neil

    Hi Neil,

    I have sent you an e-mail with some rates.

    Most of the projects that we have used to get our brownfield rates are external constructed, we are trying to change how the internal crew prices their projects to be able to confidently separate costs between asset types and pull out brownfield prices.

    Thanks​
