Extension to an existing Dangerous Goods Store and new Plant Platform deck.


Total Construction was awarded the contract for works at Ego Pharmaceuticals’ Braeside facility. The works comprised the extension of an existing Dangerous Goods Store, including extensive services alterations and structural modification.

Works also included the construction of a new loading bay canopy and subsequent hard-stand below, additional car parking for approximately 30 car-spaces, civil works, a new chiller plant slab with concrete services culvert constructed beneath existing main exit driveway, a new fully enclosed heavy-duty bin enclosure, and a new services and equipment Plant Platform deck. This was to be located and constructed over the existing administration and toilet block facility, which was occupied by the client during all construction works.

Ensuring that Ego’s day to day operations were not impacted was paramount. This required extensive interfacing with the client on a daily basis to address site access, services connection and shut-down issues.

The Dangerous Goods Store was constructed first. This occurred at the same time as the Plant Platform. Occupancy of the existing administration building was maintained during the entire construction works as all works happened whilst the site was live. No partial shutdown of the client’s process equipment was possible.

The extension of the existing canopy, the culvert and the new chiller slab all commenced via staged sequencing, shortly after the primary works to the Dangerous Goods Store and the Plant Platform commenced.
