Dubai Maritime City


GHD completed a security risk assessment, drafted a security plan, and developed security concept design guidelines for a four square-kilometre area of reclaimed land between Dubai's renowned Palm Jumeriah development and Port Rashid.

The Dubai Maritime City is being designed to be the largest maritime hub in the world, enticing international maritime organisations to locate their headquarters in the DMC. It is expected to have 30,000 residents and up to 300,000 daily commuters.

National Waterfront CCTV Network


GHD was engaged by the Australian Customs Service (ACS) to enhance surveillance of Australia’s international seaports with a national waterfront closed circuit television (CCTV) network.

The system is used to support Customs and Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) officers, by detecting and collecting evidence of illegal activities which threaten the Australian border. The network is the largest project of its type in the world, and embodies over 200 cameras and 50 video switchers in 54 Australian ports. The system is connected to a network of district, regional and national monitoring centres, providing 24-hour control, monitoring, recording and annunciation of video-activated movement alarms.

Security review for Australian passenger transport


The need for improved security has prompted an in-depth review of technologies designed to make safe mass passenger surface transport and infrastructure. GHD was engaged by the Australian Government’s Department of Transport and Regional Services to conduct a comprehensive review and prepare a report on current and emerging security technologies that could have application in mass passenger surface transport.

The first stage of the review involved detailed discussions with transport owners, transport operators, regulators and Governments to ascertain their concerns. This was followed by visits to the United States, United Kingdom and France to identify the technologies being trialed and used in these countries.

South Road Superway


The Urban Superway Joint Venture invited GHD to join them as the designer for the construction of the South Road Superway in South Australia.

A significant challenge of this project was the narrow corridor within which the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) of South Australia planned to deliver a new managed motorway standard elevated roadway with up to four lanes in each direction, over an existing arterial road with two lanes in each direction and almost no new land acquisition.

Water Treatment Automation and Centralisation (A+Ction)


As part of the A’Ction Alliance comprising GHD, Leicon-Notley and the Water Corporation Alliance, we have played a key role in an AUD50M brownfield treatment control system and SCADA upgrade project.

The project was initiated to raise the level of automation, reduce the need for operator intervention onsite and allow remote monitoring and operator control as well as enhance site security. Works included the automation and control of six metropolitan Water Treatment Plants (WTP), two regional water treatment plants and extensive borefields associated with the treatment plants.
