Alterations to an existing manufacturing facility and construction of a new road.


This project encompassed alterations to an existing manufacturing facility to allow for a smaller building footprint and sub-division of land at a later stage. The existing factory was separated into two buildings, with a new access road constructed along with a car park and two-dock loading yard. Major services were relocated.

The project was divided into three separate portions:

  • Portion A included internal demolition to allow the relocation of the facility, equipment, offices, etc. for subsequent construction works to occur.
  • Portions B & C included structural strengthening works required to separate the building into two; construction of the new road, carpark and reception area; the removal of the existing roof over the new road; new loading dock and yard; and slip lane construction.


The facility was operational throughout the construction period while services were made redundant, relocated and new services put in place.


By separating the project into portions and using a helicopter to remove valuable equipment during the demolition phase, we were able to complete Portion A ($15m) a week ahead of schedule.
