LEADING BUILDER FDC COMPLETES RESTORATION AND REBUILDING WORKS OF SYDNEY'S WHITE BAY POWER STATION

Award-winning builder FDC has completed its restoration and rebuilding works of New South Wales State heritage-listed White Bay Power Station (WBPS).

The landmark site located in Sydney’s inner western suburb of Rozelle, will open its doors for the first time in 40 years to visitors, as it makes its debut as a cornerstone location for the upcoming 24th Biennale of Sydney.

The rejuvenation of the expansive 30,000m2 site was awarded by Placemaking NSW to FDC, who commenced work on the project in 2022.

The vision was to create a versatile arts, cultural and community hub - bringing new energy to Sydney’s cultural offering. WBPS adds to FDC’s expanding portfolio of significant arts and culture projects in Sydney.

“We have increasingly become trusted partners in preserving and reimagining several of Sydney’s iconic arts and culture sites including Chau Chak Wing Museum, Phoenix Central Park and Artspace – The Gunnery.

“It is testament to the team’s skill and extensive experience to deliver on complex projects which is especially crucial on sites with heritage elements,” says FDC Managing Director Russell Grady.

“White Bay Power Station has been a once-in-a-lifetime project for many on our

team. With any heritage-site, and without that vital building blueprint to guide us, it required a high level of agility and creative problem-solving skills to address the many challenges in bringing the massive site to life.

“I believe the quality of the project speaks volumes of our team’s dedication to the revitalised site, and we look forward to having visitors rediscover this significant Sydney landmark.”

Constructed in 1917, WBPS is Sydney’s longest serving metropolitan power station and was built to power the city’s tram system, later the train system, and then the electricity grid in 1958. Forty years ago in 1984, the site was decommissioned and has laid dormant since with its status as heritage-listed cemented in 1999.

EMPOWERING WOMEN IN SPORTS AND CONSTRUCTION: BMD'S ATHLETE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM

Paving the way in our approach to collaboration, BMD’s philosophy is relationship-orientated and we engage people, partners and the community as a way to leave a lasting skills legacy beyond the delivery of infrastructure. After 44 years of operation, BMD continues to invest in the development of long-term partnerships with organisations which align with our values.

A significant part of our sponsorship portfolio lies with sporting organisations and most recently, we have specifically been supporting women’s leagues across various codes such as AFL, soccer, QRL, surf lifesaving and netball. It is because of the support we provide these partners that we created a formalised Athlete Employment Program to provide job opportunities for women to combine their sporting commitments with a career offfield through flexible employment in the construction sector.

We have established this program because of the pressing need for increased female representation within the construction industry. Research tells us that women in flexible roles are among the most productive members of a workforce and we want to ensure we are embracing this together with the positive alignment between sport and construction – the importance of collaboration and teamwork, thinking fast to solve problems and unique working hours.

Gender diversity not only enhances creativity and problem-solving skills but also fosters innovation, which is imperative for addressing our industry's major challenges. At BMD, our broad geographical reach and diverse business operations allow us to offer flexibility and an array of employment opportunities. Whether it’s remote work or roles in metropolitan areas, across various sectors of work including water and wastewater, defence, transport, or any of the myriad of other segments we work, we have lots to offer.

At our core, we are a company that values our people. Believing in their potential and nurturing their growth is what emboldens us to create new avenues for development. I am particularly excited about this initiative and the tremendous opportunities it presents for women and for our sector.

$100M PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURING FACILITY IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA’S NORTHERN SUBURBS

Terre Property Partners (Terre) announce that construction has officially commenced on an $100 million purpose-built facility for pharmaceutical company, Noumed Pharmaceuticals, based within their Nexus North Industrial Estate.

Noumed’s state-of-the-art pharmaceutical manufacturing plant, will be the most modern of its kind in Australia.

Ultimately, the project will enhance Australia’s sovereign supply into the pharmacy and health networks, by manufacturing certain OTC pharmaceutical products here in South Australia rather than being manufactured overseas.

The manufacturing plant, which is being built on a 43,000m2 site and has a floor area of 26,000m2, will join several other prominent national and international companies in Terre Property Partners’ Nexus North Industrial Estate, including Asahi, Telstra, Haighs Chocolates, and FJT Logistics.

Terre is an integrated property development and investment management company who represent a diverse range of institutional and wholesale capital partners, with projects spanning premium industrial precincts in South Australia and Victoria.

Terre Property Partners CEO, Mark Brammy, is excited to be the development and ongoing partner for the modern pharmaceutical manufacturing facility.

“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Noumed Pharmaceuticals within the Nexus North Industrial Estate.

“The location is an ideal place for hightech industries and we’re looking forward to Noumed leading the way in Australian pharmaceutical manufacturing, right here in South Australia,” Mr Brammy said.

The new manufacturing plant will receive up to $20million in Australian Government funding and is a key part of the state’s 10-year health and medical industries strategy.

The project is expected to create 250 jobs during construction and Noumed will employ more than 180 people when local production begins in 2026.

A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO BUILDING DESIGN - WHY BUILDING PRODUCT MANUFACTURERS SHOULD DEEPLY CONSIDER ENVIRONMENT AND CONTEXT

As multidisciplinary designers, we provide expert advice to major Australian building product manufacturers, informed by decades of industry experience and insights from our in-house interior designers, who specify products for a wide range of clients.

With a deep understanding of the needs and preferences of architects, designers and specifiers, we work to ensure the products manufactured are practical, desirable and will stand the test of time.

When our studio was first founded in the 1960s, the Australian construction market was reliant on products designed and produced for the European market.

Fifty years on and things have changed dramatically. With a landscape and natural light like nowhere else on earth, it has been critical for the Australian architecture and design

industry to develop high quality products that work for the landscapes we live in.

Nexus Designs has been at the forefront of this movement, which sees manufacturers work hard to understand the needs of local specifiers to ensure their products are designed accordingly.

At the heart of this is a holistic approach to materiality. Working with Australian building product manufacturers we ensure that they design and develop their products to work harmoniously with both the environment and the other components on the market that they will sit alongside.

Whilst performance is of course the top priority, considering the aesthetics – finish, colour, tonal range, and tactility of the products together is critical to the final outcome.

With our building products now being exported to countries across the globe, the Australian construction industry continues to pioneer this considered and holistic approach to design.

RESTORING A 135-YEAR-OLD MELBOURNE ICON

Melbourne’s iconic Princes Bridge is undergoing a major facelift – with restoration works to protect and enhance its distinctive historic features.

The bridge is one of the city’s busiest and most prominent gateways, linking the CBD with a range of popular cultural, historic, sporting and entertainment attractions.

Restoration works are being carried out in sections, including cleaning, repairing and replacing bluestone blocks and restoring heritage features.

Princes Bridge was built in 1888 to accommodate Melbourne’s booming population following the gold rush period. It replaced a single-span bluestone and granite arch bridge (1850-1884) and the wooden trestle bridge (1844-1852) that came before it.

Over the years, the bridge has evolved with the city – accommodating electric trams after being reinforced in 1924, removing lead-based paint from the ironwork in 2006 and becoming more pedestrian-friendly with the introduction of single lanes in each direction in 2013.

It is one of the oldest river crossings in the CBD and has undergone minimal repairs in its 135-year lifetime – until now.

Detailed restoration work has begun on site and will be completed in stages over the next three years.

The restoration project is one of the first to display artwork around the site as part of Council’s Creative Hoardings project – with a thought-provoking work to be installed,

titled Remembering by Yorta Yorta and man, historian, cultural educator and artist John Patten.

Access under and along the bridge will be maintained throughout most of the works. Melburnians and visitors will be notified of any short-term closures and diversions.

MCNAB WINS NATIONAL GONG FOR ICONIC CITY HALL

McNab, one of Queensland’s largest privately-owned companies, has taken home a coveted national award for the landmark Sunshine Coast City Hall project at the Master Builders National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards hosted at Crown Towers in Perth [25 November, 2023].

After winning the Queensland Project of the Year for its work on Sunshine Coast Council’s City Hall located in the Maroochydore CBD, the construction company was awarded the National Commercial/Industrial Construction Award ($50M to $100M) at the national awards ceremony.

McNab Founder and Managing Director Michael McNab said he was immensely proud of the team honoured with this prestigious national award, presented annually in recognition of the country’s best builders in housing and construction.

BENEFITS OF CONSTRUCTION CLOUD TECHNOLOGY

The Australian construction industry has a great opportunity to embrace the productivity benefits of construction cloud technology.

By implementing cloud and mobile technology in construction, firms can enjoy successful project and business outcomes, including:

• Increased scalability by subscribing to a flexible, cloud-based solution that can grow with your firm’s needs and objectives.

• Access to real-time performance metrics, such as plans, budgets and schedules that allow for more efficient collaboration and decision making.

• Enhanced security that is typically managed by experienced IT professionals, stored on secure servers and protected by advanced security protocols.

• Improved collaboration and information sharing, thanks to streamlined workflows shared between internal and external stakeholders.

• Reduced errors since manual data entry and validation processes can be automated, and since project schedules can be created and managed to ensure timelines are followed.

The Australian construction industry is historically known for its slow uptake of technology and limited productivity, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

When implemented correctly, construction cloud technology can help businesses reach their project management goals, increase productivity and reduce costs.

Construction leaders willing to invest in cloud-based technology will be well-

“In addition to this, when it came to the 2,000-plus workers who contributed to this project, we heavily targeted local market engagement and procurement. McNab's local presence, valued long-term partnerships and ongoing engagement with the Sunshine Coast community was incredibly beneficial in the delivery of this project.”

Sunshine Coast City Hall was designed by award-winning Cottee Parker Architects with the iconic façade of the building inspired by the forms and colours of the Glass House Mountains, one of the most defining natural landmarks of the Sunshine Coast region.

The building is among the earliest projects to be delivered as part of the Sunshine Coast Council, Walker Corporation and SunCentral Maroochydore Pty Ltd’s historic agreement to deliver Australia’s first ‘greenfield’ CBD in Maroochydore over the next 15 to 20 years.

“Sunshine Coast City Hall forms part of the collective vision to create a first-of-its-kind regional civic, business and commercial heart and McNab is delighted to be part of this promising future for the Sunshine Coast,” Mr McNab said.

MULTIPLEX AWARDED MELBOURNE STUDENT HOUSING CONTRACT

Global contractor Multiplex has been appointed by Brookfield Asset Management to deliver its first-ever student housing project in Australia in a joint venture with Citiplan and Journal Student Living.

In a prominent location in Carlton opposite the University of Melbourne’s Parkville campus, the upcoming development sits on an amalgamated block on the corner of Bouverie and Grattan Streets. It also sits within walking distance of the CBD, Lygon Street, Queen Victoria Market and Melbourne Central, making it a prized location for students.

Multiplex has been awarded the contract after early contractor involvement, collaboratively working with Brookfield, Citiplan and Journal Student Living to develop the design, pricing, and construction methodology for the project.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to leverage our robust credentials, successfully delivering residential apartment projects, and combine them with our specialist expertise in the education sector,” said Ross Snowball, Regional Managing Director at Multiplex.

“It builds upon our strong track record in delivering student housing in Victoria, with projects recently undertaken for both La Trobe and Monash Universities.”

Designed by award-winning firm Jackson Clement Burrows Architects, the new building spans a total area of 13,632m2 , featuring 464 beds across 15-storeys as well as three retail tenancies.

FUTURE-PROOFING YOUR WORKFORCE WITH INSTITUTIONAL MEMORY

Skilled labour shortage, aging workforces and growth in demand for infrastructure can create a concerning need for fresh talent to execute quickly and efficiently on complex projects. To compete and comply with rapidly changing standards, it’s crucial to facilitate intergenerational knowledge transfer, and train new talent at speed, while minimising risks and raising the bar on accurate project delivery.

We’re familiar with the challenges. Talent retention is a constant struggle and new generations enter the workforce short of skills. When employees leave, they leach institutional knowledge and trade secrets to competitors. Teams vary from project to project and there is a wealth of tangible knowledge (legal and technical documents) and intangible knowledge (techniques and skills) that aren’t formally retained or made accessible. This is your institutional memory.

So, how do you capture this valuable IP?

The key is to transform that goldmine of organisational data into a live reference bank that current and future generations can upload and download for enhanced project delivery - centralised solutions that capture documents, drawings, models and estimating and planning solutions with structures for project data that can be used for comparison and benchmarking.

Often, we see veterans in the industry grappling with innovation, yet they are fundamental to driving innovation. With institutional memory systems in place, their knowledge can be captured and processed. Integrated with new project data, AI and advanced digital tools, this will drive up the pace of innovation and demonstrate an attractive vision and culture of successful project delivery.

Brookfield Head of Real Estate Investments for Australia Ruban Kaneshamoorthy said: “There are significant tailwinds for student accommodation in Australia. We see this as a highly favourable environment to develop sites, with international students returning to study and existing accommodation almost at capacity. The winning combination of location, amenity and design will make this site a highly sought-after space for students.”

BIG OPPORTUNITY TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS OF INFRASTRUCTURE

The Victorian Government has a big opportunity to reduce the climate impacts of the infrastructure it builds and operates, the state’s independent infrastructure advisor finds.

Infrastructure Victoria’s latest advice to the Victorian Government, Opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of infrastructure makes 10 recommendations to limit carbon emissions across Victorian government schools, hospitals, transport projects and other infrastructure.

Chief Executive Officer Dr Jonathan Spear says planning and delivering infrastructure to support emissions reduction goals can save money, improve productivity and create new jobs.

“There are many ways to reduce the climate impacts of the infrastructure government

builds and operates, such as getting better use from existing assets and prioritising low carbon design and materials,” Dr Spear said.

“Our advice outlines a path for government to make reducing emissions of infrastructure the new business-as-usual.”

The report recommends the Victorian Government adopt a dollar value per tonne of carbon to inform infrastructure planning and business cases. This is the approach that New South Wales and other governments have adopted, so that infrastructure project decisions are consistent with emission reduction targets and policies.

“We can’t manage what we don’t measure. Valuing emissions in business cases ensures that climate change impacts are considered alongside other costs and benefits of a project.”

INFRASTRUCTURE VICTORIA’S 10 RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE VICTORIAN GOVERNMENT TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE EMISSIONS (CARBON) FROM PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE ARE:

• Develop a comprehensive approach to measure and manage carbon emissions modelled on the UK’s PAS 2080:2023 Carbon management in buildings and infrastructure standard.

• Identify and adopt carbon measurement tools and deliver training across the Victorian Government.

• Value carbon using a target consistent approach and calculate required values to achieve Victorian emissions reduction targets.

• Update business case guidelines and templates to integrate emissions reduction.

• Measure carbon in infrastructure cost benefit analysis.

• Update procurement frameworks and guidance to promote carbon reduction in tenders.

• Update standard form contracts to include minimum carbon reduction requirements and incentives for further reductions.

• Establish carbon management pre-qualification requirements for government contracts.

• Support industry to develop zero or low emissions solutions by testing alternative materials and adopting performance-based standards.

• Update assurance processes to include carbon emissions.

Dr Spear said swift action now can offer new opportunities for Victoria as the world transitions to a low carbon economy.

“Other regions, including the USA and Europe, are introducing restrictions on high emissions materials and sustainability requirements for businesses,” Dr Spear said. “Reducing emissions of infrastructure means Victoria is better positioned as the global economy shifts.”

The advice recommends the government adopt a consistent and comprehensive approach to measure and manage carbon emissions across the lifecycle of new infrastructure projects, modelled on the UK’s PAS 2080:2023 Carbon management in buildings and infrastructure standard.

Other recommendations include training for staff across the public sector and support for industry to test low carbon materials (see recommendations summary below).

“Industry told us they are ready and willing to respond to clear direction from the Victorian Government about the level and pace of infrastructure decarbonisation,” he said.

“With its multi-billion dollar pipeline of new build infrastructure, the Victorian Government has a big opportunity to influence how infrastructure is designed, what materials are used in construction and the jobs for Victorians in a low carbon economy.”

3 OVERARCHING PRINCIPLES TO GUIDE INFRASTRUCTURE DECARBONISATION EFFORTS IN VIC:

• Prioritise non-build or low build solutions. Aim to get better use from existing infrastructure or modify it to meet changing needs before considering a new build.

• Align approaches with other governments and industry best practices in order to rapidly adopt proven approaches.

• Clarify the scale and pace of infrastructure emissions reduction to give confidence to industry to propose or take up options to reduce carbon in the significant pipeline of infrastructure projects underway.

INFRASTRUCTURE PARTNERSHIPS AUSTRALIA WELCOMES INFRASTRUCTURE VICTORIA’S ADVICE ON DECARBONISATION

Industry welcomes Infrastructure Victoria’s advice as a significant milestone towards accounting for, and reducing, greenhouse gas emissions in infrastructure delivery.

As a longstanding advocate for sensible reform, it is pleasing to see our advocacy for using a ‘carbon base case’ as a key metric in major project decisions adopted. This includes what should be built, how this can be done, and who delivers it.

Right now, when governments decide where to allocate hundreds of billions of dollars taxpayers’ money to infrastructure programmes, they are flying blind on

Manufactured from a lightweight and durable High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) material, the HDPE Formwork is designed to be portable and easy to assemble. It removes the need for heavy transport haulage and machine installation for heavy steel forms, amongst other efficiencies.

carbon. That’s not an exaggeration – they have no visibility of the carbon implications in the decisions they make.

For Australia to reach net zero, we must transform how we build.

Infrastructure Victoria’s recommendations made today have the capacity to limit emissions over the life cycle of a project and save infrastructure providers potentially billions of dollars in capital costs –particularly by creating the right incentives to use less of the highest emitting materials like concrete and steel.

NEXTDC BREAKS GROUND ON $80 MILLION DATA CENTRE, D1 DARWIN

NEXTDC Limited (ASX: NXT), Australia’s leading data centre services provider, officially begins development on its $80 million D1 Darwin data centre facility with a targeted completion and launch in June 2024.

MAKE A STATEMENT WITH 250MM COMMERCIAL FRAMING

With over 27 years of dedicated service in the aluminium industry, Darley Aluminium stands as a respected Australian-owned family business and one of the nation's premier distributors of aluminium extrusions. Far more than a supplier, Darley provides tailored solutions to fabricators across the country, and have added the 250mm commercial framing system to their suite of cutting-edge solutions.

Darley Aluminium introduced their new CityView 250mm front double glazed commercial framing system to the market to cater to large spans, high wind loads and applications where design and visual appeal are a top priority.

The system is perfect for commercial spaces where light and visibility are premium realestate including car dealerships, showrooms, hotels, exhibition halls, and commercial lobby spaces.

Design Flexibility and Versatility

The sleek and modern aesthetic of the 250mm system can be customised to suit the buildings’ colour and style. As this framing system is front-glazed, its glazing pockets are in a forward position, making it flush with the external finishes. This gives the façade of the building a clean, sleek, and minimalist look

from the outside while allowing an abundance of light and creating bright open spaces.

The 250mm system is compatible with Darley’s CityView 45mm commercial doors and CityView Awning and casement windows making this system versatile and customisable to your design wants and needs.

Compliance with Australian Standards

The new 250mm commercial framing system has been tested to and exceeds AS2047 Windows and external glazed doors in buildings and AS/NZ 4284 testing of building facades offering superior quality.

Structural Integrity

With dedicated mullion stiffeners for additional strength when required, the 250mm system provides robust structural support and is perfect for projects featuring large spans of distance between two supports.

A 250mm system can provide the necessary structural support and can be load bearing when required, able to reach an overall height of 6,000mm. The system also features a dedicated sub-framing system for optimal installation and weatherproofing.

ANCR SPECIAL FOCUS AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION REVIEW 16

High Wind Loads

The strength, structural integrity and ability to withstand strong weather forces of the 250mm system makes it the ideal choice for installation in areas with high wind and extreme weather conditions.

Understanding Acoustic Glazing

Specifying the best glass for noise reduction

The ability to control external sounds in our homes, workplaces, hospitals and schools has gained importance due to modern lifestyles and the close proximity of these buildings to highways, airports, construction sites and industry. Among the many building materials and products that make up a structure, windows and doors have a big impact on how well the home or building is insulated from outside noise. With the wide range of glazing solutions available, understanding the differences between singleglazing, multi-layered glazing, laminated glass and high-performance acoustic glazing is essential.

Understanding Acoustic Glazing: Specifying the best glass for noise reduction explores the role of glazing in acoustic design and how different types of glazing products compare in terms of sound reduction performance. We highlight what makes acoustic glass a high-performance solution distinct from other forms of glazing. We also look at common misconceptions surrounding acoustic glass.

PIONEERING CANTILEVER SHADE STRUCTURES

Case Study : Stockland Wetherill Park Kitchin Lane Shade Structure

In the heart of Wetherill Park's foodie hub, Stockland Shopping Centre’s Kinchin Lane, Sydney Shade Sails has once again demonstrated its commitment to innovation and excellence with the creation of a butterfly-style cantilever shade structure to enhance the outdoor experience in this bustling culinary enclave.

The client’s request was ambitious – a butterfly-style cantilever shade structure with canopies manufactured from a fiberglass fabric coated in PTFE (trade name Teflon®) coating (Skytop FGT-800). This product is not manufactured in Australia; outsourcing to an overseas company marked a change in practice for Sydney Shade Sails, who usually manufactures everything themselves.

Skytop FGT-800 is an architectural fabric developed in Japan for membrane structures. It is a composite material produced by heating and compacting fluoroplastic (a class of plastics

using fluorine instead of hydrogen in it’s carbon chain composition) and glass filament yarn. The fluoroplastic membrane FGT series is a combination of Teflon® PTFE with self-extinguishing properties and glass cloth fiber with heat resistance.

For Sydney Shade Sails the challenge lay in working with a fabric never used before. The material, lacking the stretch of regular PVC, initially caused apprehension. However, once the first canopy was in place, the pieces fell into perfect alignment.

The project’s sheer size, in terms of steelwork, made it the most significant undertaking for Sydney Shade Sails to date. With specifications including a 6m width, two structures measuring 6m x 9m and 6m x 30m, and a towering height of 5530mm, the project demanded precision and creativity.

Operating in a busy shopping center, the team faced the additional challenge of working

amidst operational shops. The meticulous planning, fabrication of the canopy’s framing, and three weeks of on-site work, including adjustments and modifications, highlighted the company’s versatility and dedication to delivering beyond expectations.

NSW PROJECT FEATURE SPRING SQUARE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION REVIEW 24

Established in 2003, Topdeck Flooring is Australia’s leading importer and supplier of luxury engineered timber, hybrid flooring, solid timber, and laminate flooring. Topdeck Flooring also offers project-based solutions to support major residential and commercial developments across the country.

“We supplied over 22,000m2 of custom-made European oak engineered flooring to 516 apartments in the Spring Square development located in Bankstown, News South Wales. In the process, we partnered with developer and builder to provide project customisation based on architect requests,” said General Manager of Topdeck Flooring, Jerry Ji.

“Engineered flooring is highly durable, economical and satisfies the 5-star acoustic rating requirements for apartments whilst retaining the texture and characteristics of solid timber and retains a high-end look and feel.”

There are several key advantages of engineered oak flooring over solid oak. One of which is the multi-layered construction and its durability which offers superior strength allowing the floors to be more resistant to warping, buckling and moisture damage. These planks withstand decades of wear, making them versatile for high traffic commercial and residential spaces with minimal maintenance.

Cost-effectiveness and sustainability is another advantage of this product type. “We recognise a major challenge of development projects is around the management of budgeting and cost. Engineered flooring provides a friendly, cost-effective solution compared to solid oak, tiles and carpet,” said Jerry.

“Not only is Engineered oak cost-friendly, it is also environmentally friendly by using only a thickness of 2mm-6mm oak wood per plank as a top layer veneer. We only use a small portion of the tree, unlike solid oak wood, which uses the majority. The compressed core of engineered flooring utilises waste wood and pulp, using fewer materials during the construction process,” emphasised Jerry.

Aesthetics are synonymous with engineered flooring as it is available in a range of styles, finishes and widths allowing our clients more flexibility and choice. Engineered oak is also

designed to be incredibly long-lasting; it is intended to last longer than the lifespan of you home, with limited maintenance required.

“We also custom make stair nosing locally for 612 steps using the corresponding European oak engineered flooring featured in the apartments. This ensures a minimum P3 slip rating in accordance with the Australian Standard AS4586, as well as creating flooring consistency throughout the building,” said Jerry.

“The Spring Square build is one of the major projects over the past year where we have supplied engineered timber flooring and stair nosing in stages over 12 months to satisfy building schedule requirements.”

“The forestry industry is still impacted by the effects of COVID, which means there is a global shortage of European oak logs used for the veneer of engineered flooring solutions. In order to combat this, my team and I carefully planned and worked closely with timber suppliers and manufacturers and ensured our company held sufficient supply in our 10,000m2 warehouse in Sydney to meet the demands of ongoing projects. Innovating and creating solutions is core to who we are as a company.”

Current projects include supplying laminate flooring to the Parade West Ryde and Lidcombe Rise and engineered flooring to the Aurora Terrace townhouse developments in Rose Hill.

EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION

CLIENT : Catholic Schools Office, Diocese Maitland-Newcastle

MAIN CONSTRUCTION COMPANY : North Construction & Building

ARCHITECT : Webber Architects

CONSTRUCTION VALUE : $46.5 million

The Catherine McAuley Catholic College involved the completion of multiple stages, including the construction of Blocks E, F, G and H; a multi-purpose hall, and refurbishing works to existing staff rooms, science rooms and hospitality spaces. The overall design incorporated linkways, car parking, services infrastructure works, exterior break out spaces and landscaping.

Catherine McAuley Catholic College, located in Medowie, New South Wales, is a brand new educational institution that aims to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for its students.

North Construction & Building (North), an experienced regional construction company, was initially engaged as an Early Contractor Involvement partner, along with Webber Architects, to develop a masterplan for the entire school and deliver Stage 1 works. North was then awarded Stage 2 from a competitive tender process and then Stages 3 and 4.

Block E consists of a TAS workshop and design spaces; Block F consists of both PDHPE and art/multimedia spaces, including outdoor work areas; Block G consists of the senior school library, senior and junior study and general purpose learning areas; and Block H consists of general purpose learning areas.

These stages also encompassed the creation of linkways, car parking, services infrastructure, and landscaping, to ensure a fully-equipped campus was available to support the learning of 1,200 students from years 7 to 12.

“The development of a brand new college comes with its own set of challenges,” said Construction Manager, Darren Wilton. “Coordinating the construction process, adhering to timelines, and ensuring seamless integration of the new buildings with the existing ones requires careful planning and execution.”

North’s extensive experience and commitment to excellence positioned them as the perfect collaborator for the Catherine McAuley Catholic College development. With an award-winning reputation and a sincere commitment to projects, North prioritises relationships and values trust, ensuring that their clients are fully involved throughout the construction process.

Lime stabilisation was carried out to improve the subgrade to achieve an acceptable standard and can also provide greater long-term stability of the pavement structure.

“There were some tricky elements to this project because of the different levels and heights in the Stage 3 area around the amphitheatre, seating and yarning circle,” said Grant. “A lot of trades had to collaborate to get the work completed.

PCW Commercial Windows are very proud to have been associated with North Construction again, this time completing Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the Catherine McAuley Catholic College at Medowie. PCW were contracted to supply and install all of the commercial windows, commercial doors and security screen products.

“We were engaged quite early on in the design process by North Construction,” explained Director, Leigh Spinks. “Webber Architects knew what they wanted and we were involved in the selection of the glass and window suites that would achieve the energy ratings, as well as the desired aesthetic of the building.”

To that end, PCW and their 25 year partnership with Capral were able to provide Capral’s market-leading LocAl (Lower Carbon Emission) aluminium products for this build. The products have been responsibly sourced from mining to end-user with a focus on keeping emissions down. Capral are the only ASI Certified aluminium supplier in Australia, and PCW were excited to showcase this cleaner, greener sourcing of materials.

PCW’s project management expertise was a clear highlight as the team tackled multiple buildings simultaneously to satisfy a time-sensitive

construction program. “We needed to be in multiple buildings at once – finishing off in one while starting in another,” said Leigh.

“We fabricate all the products locally in our factory at Somersby before they go to site, and this requires efficiency from office, to warehouse, to site, to hit each milestone for the builder. It was important that we didn’t lose sight of what was happening ahead of us, which meant thinking months ahead of the construction program.”

Leigh highlighted the efforts of his project team for the project’s success – Dillon Selby (Project Manager), Tim Smith (Site Supervisor) and Luke Bardsley (Factory Manager). “These guys kept the job running efficiently, at a high quality and with such amazing, positive attitudes,” said Leigh.

More than just a residential space, Novello is designed to enhance various aspects of the Wollongong lifestyle.”

Defined by its striking, sharp angles and corners around the façade, the Novello invites natural light throughout the building with full-height glass lobbies, sliding doors and maximum window openings.

The project commenced in August 2021, with the initial concrete slab poured in early December 2021. Under the supervision of the full-time TQM staff, the project reached completion in early November 2023. The daily manpower on-site ranged from 50 to 95 during peak periods.

“The coordination between the architect, structural engineers, precast panel drafters, service engineers, and interior architects was crucial for success. It ensured that all aspects of the building, from design to construction to interior elements, were seamlessly integrated,” said Emmanuel.

The project encountered COVIDrelated challenges, such as restricted work hours, the implementation of new on-site methodologies for health and safety compliance, and disruptions in skilled labor availability, affecting construction progress. Additionally, inflation and higher construction costs impacted budgets and timelines, with supply chain disruptions delaying the delivery of materials and equipment.

“TQM retains many services in-house, including internal design, engineering, and precast design. This approach ensures maximum efficiency and eliminates any confusion arising from poor coordination and inefficiencies combining diverse objectives. All teams work together seamlessly, ensuring the final result is visually appealing and a building that possesses structural strength and efficiency and is conducive to comfortable living,” said Emmanuel.

This project embraced full precast construction, which considers more than just structural integrity and performance, it extends into considering environmentally sustainable, waste reduction, and logistical efficiencies.

By employing a precast methodology at Novello, TQM were able to ensure that

considerations such as architectural design, consultant services, waterproofing, and weatherproofing, critical and non-critical consideration were managed from the earliest revisions of the design.

“What sets TQM apart is our commitment and unwavering dedication. Our personal involvement surpasses industry standards, from settlements and handovers to crucial after-sales care. Our 4-star iCIRT rating is a testament to our dedication and excellence,” said Emmanuel.

Projects currently under construction include East End Newcastle, which includes the construction of 116 residential apartments with 2-levels of basement parking, refurbishment of five heritage-listed terrace buildings, seven retail/commercial spaces and adaptive re-use of the Lyrique Theatre/Masonic Hall.

Additionally, the Bianco Balgowlah project that includes the design and construction of 12 boutique apartments, two levels of basement parking and three retail spaces.

New South Wales based Rose Aktins Rimmer (RAR) are the water-related infrastructure, design and management specialists trusted to design and develop the required water infrastructure for Wollongong’s newest residential project, the Novello.

RAR collaborated with developers on the significant development project of designing and coordinating a water main amplification for the Novello site. The core water-related challenge of the project was the need to amplify an existing 150mm main to a larger 200mm main tailored to meet the precise requirements, set out by the developer and Sydney Water.

RAR’s dedicated design and project management teams worked closely with both the developer and their hydraulic consultant to ensure the seamless integration of the upsized main into the broader sitewide project plan. RAR managed design challenges while offering suitable alternatives to achieve the most effective and efficient solution.

In operating the QA process, RAR conducted numerous on-site inspections, including those outside regular working hours, working closely with Sydney Water, key stakeholders, local businesses and residents. Their primary objective was to ensure that the project

delivered a superior product to Sydney Water, meeting all the specified criteria outlined in the Sydney Water standards.

RAR is a licensed water servicing coordinator accredited by Sydney Water for over 30 years, specialising in sewer and water infrastructure from small developments to greenfield subdivisions to large road and rail infrastructure upgrades.

“This was a fantastic large-scale project to work on and an incredible addition to Wollongong’s architectural scene,” said Phillip Birch, owner-operator of Birch Masonry. “Throughout the build, our team installed over 30,000 blocks. This includes lower basement areas and cages, service areas and shop dividers on the ground floor.”

“A key highlight of this installation for us was the shop dividers. Not only were they 8m high, the dividers needed to achieve a 3-hour fire rating. To achieve this required fire rating, we had to install 2-hour rated blocks, then core-fill each block to add an additional layer of strength and protection.”

Traditionally shop dividers and walls are approximately 4m in height but the grand scale of the Novello project saw ceiling heights on the ground floor reach 8m. The doubled height of the walls, not only required additional manpower but specialised scaffoldings needed to be erected to support the weight of the blocks at height.

“We began work on site in October 2022 and completed works in

February 2023. Being a larger project with a tight turnaround time, it required us to have an average of six brick layers and two labourers on-site daily working across the various elements and sections of the project,” said Phillip.

“We were tasked with fabricating and installing 350m of glass balcony balustrade, roughly 800m2 of louvres, 600m2 of basement caging across 2-levels, 60m of handrail in the double story units, as well as privacy and fixed panel louvres,” said Charlie Han, director of Runze Interior and Exterior Decorations. “Additionally we installed the 1.6m high by 55m long toughened laminate glass roof glass screen.”

“This was a larger project being 15 stories tall for us and was a great project to be involved with. We began work in late 2022 and completed the project in late 2023 with a team of four specialist installers and two highly trained fabricators in our factory,” said Charlie.

“The largest challenge we faced with this project was the large louvres that span over 2-levels of the building. Fabricating, transporting and installing louvres that are 6m tall was no easy task due to their weight and size. Our team ensured that the louvres not only met the engineering specifications but satisfied the architectural needs at the same time.”

TIMELESS CHARM AND CONTEMPORARY LIVING

The architectural design of Maynard Gardens Bowral combines French country manor aesthetics with modern elegance. Consisting of three buildings and offering a total of 43 units in 1, 2, and 3-bedroom layouts, Maynard Gardens features seamless indoor/outdoor living, with a distinguished façade, dormer windows, and beautifully landscaped gardens.

Novati Constructions, a family-owned company with over 53 years of construction expertise, has left an indelible mark in the New South Wales Southern Highland’s town of Bowral, with Maynard Gardens.

THE SHINING PEARL OF SHELL COVE

MAIN

ARCHITECT : Smart Design Studio

PROJECT VALUE : $70 million

With its distinctive semi-circular design The Nautilus, Shell Cove has earned national acclaim. Boasting 116 waterfront residences with panoramic views, the project features two buildings centered around communal spaces, including lush landscaping, an elliptical pool, and a private rooftop terrace.

Built by Parkview, and located on a promontory within the purpose-built precinct, Natulius Shell Cove takes advantage of the spectacular waterfront to capture the best Shell Cove has to offer with views and natural light in abundance.

“Nautilus is in a prime harbourfront location, and its sweeping crescent shape was specifically designed to follow the arch along the water’s edge and offer premium views of the headland and marina,” Tahir Mehmed, Parkview Project Manager.

The waterfront-facing building stands 5-storeys tall and the other at four. The bronze balustrade and glazed windows combined with 550 individual precast custom-colour concrete panels gives Nautilus a striking yet elegant presence.

“We faced various challenges that come along with such a detailed and architecturally complex build. Not only is the feature building entirely curved in a horseshoe shape, but the building’s levels

also are offset upon each other to create an hourglass shape,” said Tahir.

“This means that curvature is throughout every space of the building, which creates a unique water-like flow. As the apartments fan out from the curved inner lane of the building, each and every apartment has slightly different dimensions and shape depending on where in the curve and hourglass shapes they are positioned.”

“There was nothing standard about this project, which is what made this build challenging yet very enjoyable as we were able to work closely with the architect and tailor the interior layouts to the individual spaces with their bespoke finishes.”

In addition to COVID impacts, industry-wide labour shortages and changes to industry legislation, inclement weather conditions impacted the build sequence for the first six months of the project. Being located on the waterfront, wind speeds would determine if the single

crane located in the centre of the site that serviced both buildings would be able to operate safely. While the wet season affected the build timeline as contractors were not able to pour the basement slabs, erect the walls, and have the basement tanked, ready for the building foundations to be poured.

Despite the inclement weather, Tahir and his team decided to make significant changes to their construction methodology and timeline to ensure the building could proceed. “We changed our construction sequence from six large concrete pours down to 15 smaller concrete pours. This allowed us to work within the short, good weather windows while continuing to keep the build on schedule.”

Practical completion is set for early to mid 2024, with approximately 15 Parkview staff and 105 contractors involved in the project, there were between 110 – 140 people on site on any given day throughout the build stages if the weather allowed for it.

NAUTILUS CURVED FAÇADE PERFECTED

Ensuring the architecturally detailed Nautilus project with its sweeping curved façade was completed with exacting precision, required the expert advice and consultancy of RSS Façades, who specialises in the design, engineering and certification of building envelopes and engineered façade systems.

“On the Nautilus project, our role was to translate design ideas into clear, realistic and simple solutions and strategies for the entire façade, which includes the window glazing, balustrade, cladding and precast panelling,” said Managing Director and Principal Façade Engineer, Ramy Sorial.

“My role as a consultant is to provide guidance, solutions and support in the design and construction, and deliver as the advisor to what the façade contractors are providing relevant to the façade. This includes detail design and certification, quality and compliance inspections, reviewing façade contractor shop drawings,

handling technical queries and providing specialist technical advice,” said Ramy.

“From our extensive on-site construction experience, we understand the limitations often faced by our clients, and this helps us create highly specific on-site solutions.”

Ramy began RSS Façades in 2019 with 15 years of Facade Engineering Design and on-site construction based experience. To fill a gap he saw in the construction industry, Ramy stepped in to fill the industry-wide need for a specialist façade consultant with on-theground construction experience. With his unique skill set and deep understanding of the challenges faced by contractors, builders and developers alike, he is able to offer practical, targeted solutions that are realistic and simply executed.

“The various solutions for this challenging façade needed to be easy to source, manufacture and build. Due to the oceanfront location of the Nautilus,

suitable materials, specifically noncorrosive structural components, needed to be used to ensure the longevity and durability of the structure,” said Ramy.

This was an exceptionally beautiful yet challenging project due to the façade curving around to follow the oceanfront boundary while the building’s levels stack on top of one another to create an hourglass shape.

The ever-changing geometry of the floor or elevation has required indepth consultation and collaboration with the builder and the architect to ensure all connection points are clean and perfectly aligned.

A unique feature of the building is the balustrade that aligns to the tilted angle of the building and follows the profile of the precast, varying from floor to floor. As it is a sensitive architectural feature, it was vital for RSS Facades to come up with ideas on how to implement this on-site, ensuring that the

NSW PROJECT FEATURE NAUTILUS - SHELL COVE 56

frameless glass balustrades flowed with the precast, rather than acted against it and created harsh angles or lines.

“This build is so detailed and architecturally complex. The custom, high-end nature of this project is what has made consulting on this project with the team at Parkview Constructions a satisfying and rewarding experience. It was very important that we remained true to the architectural intent while creating solutions that are achievable and comfortably executed by the various contractors and teams on the ground,” said Ramy.

RSS Facades specialise in providing façade consultancy and engineering services to the residential, commercial, educational and medical industries nationwide and internationally.

The team specialise in the design and documentation of new façade systems,

including curtain wall systems, frameless glass walls, glass floors, architectural façade features and rain-screen cladding systems.

Current projects include high end developments, health infrastructure, government buildings, high rise residential and commercial buildings, and bespoke architectural commercial spaces.

For the Nautilus to provide outstanding amenities and luxury comforts, it requires a sophisticated and high-powered electrical network. Power Distribution Australia Pty Ltd are the experts in high power voltage and were the perfect team for the job.

Power Distribution Australia were contracted to supply and installation of a 1000kVA Endeavour Energy indoor substation with high voltage and low voltage extensions on the electrical network.

“The installation of high-voltage indoor substations for largescale projects falls within our expertise, and our team completes approximately 15-20 projects of this type a year,” said Power Distribution Australia Director, Emily Rossi. “These projects, including the Nautilus project, require specialised high-voltage jointers to ensure the equipment is installed, terminated, tested and commissioned correctly.”

The project required the team to use their specialised earthing rig to install the earthing as per Endeavour Energy specifications.

Works on site commenced in May 2022 and were completed on time and within budget in Feb 2023. “This impressive project gave us an

opportunity to give our employees and subcontractors who live on the southern coast a chance to partake in a new installation within their local area. We had six employees working directly on the project and had 15 staff, including subcontractors working together on the energisation/commissioning portion of the project,” said Emily.

Current projects include the Woolooware Bay town centre project, Chatswood golf club, a build-to-rent development in Parramatta and Hoxton Park high school.

BLENDING URBAN LIVING WITH NATURE

IVES is Stage 3 of the mixed-use precinct in Bruce. Featuring a mix of 32 two, three and four-bedroom townhouses over three levels, IVES expertly balances interior and exterior spaces and each residence comes equipped with solar panels to maximise efficient living. The ground floor provides essential medical suites (paediatrician, GP’s and neurologist), retail and a IGA Supermarket.

In 2018, TP Dynamics embarked on the ambitious WISH revitalisation project in the heart of Bruce. The three-stage vision is breathing new life into the established suburb through retail and commercial offerings while providing opportunities for Canberrans to experience inner-city living without sacrificing proximity to nature and amenity.

The Third Stage of this project is the IVES precinct, a considered and complementary blend of both residential and commercial, the project is a truly integrated modern multi-use site. “IVES is close to schools, universities and health services but with bush-exploring adventures and lake-side strolls just minutes from your door,” said Project Manager, Kenneth Kong.

A mere 7km northwest of the city, Bruce delivers the convenience of inner-city living within a stone’s throw of some of the Bush Capital’s best nature reserves. Within walking distance is Radford College, the University of Canberra, the Australian Institute of Sport and

the Canberra Institute of Technology, and slightly further afeild are Calvary Hospital, ANU and the Canberra International Sports and Aquatic Centre.

IVES is an assortment of 2, 3- and 4-bedrooms townhouses that are ultra-large and thoughtfully designed so residents get the best of everything.

The ‘stay-at-home’ restrictions of COVID influenced the design of IVES’ 32 townhouses. With eyes on the future and new ways of living and working, TP Dynamics incorporated features to make spending more time at home more sustainable, safer and more comfortable –even for those who might need to isolate.

Every townhouse is fitted with solar panels for greater energy efficiency and to cut costs for residents, as well as provision for electric vehicle charging. The townhouses’ size and floorplans cleverly optimise the available indoor and outdoor living – and working – spaces.

ACT PROJECT FEATURE IVES AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION REVIEW 62

“Things like studies, bigger living spaces and multiple accesses to fresh air with courtyards and balconies from different rooms are part of the idea to adapt for COVID,” said Kenneth. “As much as possible we’ve also split bedrooms into different areas and levels so the residents can minimise contact if required.”

There is 1,000m2 of commercial space on the ground floor which has been split into two to increase the liveability of IVES. On one half features a medical specialist centre incorporating paediatrician, GP’s and neurologist, and the other retail offerings for the Bruce community including an IGA supermarket.

The biggest hurdle TP Dynamics had to face was in the slope of the land. “If you stand in front of the development you are facing a steel slope,” explained Kenneth. “In terms of design we needed to cut in quite deep. We also needed to have the area rezoned from commercial to residential before we started.”

From landscaped gardens to lush pockets of foliage, thoughtful steps have been taken to ensure constant interaction with nature. IVES offers a fresh outlook on the way residents can find enjoyment living amidst tranquil surroundings while being in the heart of Bruce. Commercial offerings are designed to integrate with the open spaces where the community can gather.

Founded in 2011, TP Dynamics is run by a team of award-winning architects, designers and project and construction managers with experience in and a passion for architecture, development and construction.

Tier One Fire Protection was responsible for designing and executing the entire fire contract for the IVES project, completing a detailed consultation to ensure a best-fit fire prevention design, including system installation, asset management, and fire compliance.

“The biggest challenge we faced was coming into the project at a later point than is usual,” said Owner, Mark Hallam. “The original contractor was no longer available for the project and through our existing relationship with TP Dynamics, we were asked to tender. We were awarded the job on a Friday and started on Monday.”

“We jumped at the opportunity to prove we had the capabilities to complete this project, even though we started behind everyone else,” said Mark. “It was a real highlight to turn it around from design to construction in the allocated time frame.”

Mark and his business partner, have a great deal of experience in the fire protection space having worked for another fire protection company for several years, and then subcontracting for 12 months before deciding to start Tier One Fire Protection.

“We started the business in 2020 and two weeks later COVID hit,” said Mark. “Thankfully, being in Canberra meant our doors remained open. We were awarded our first major job in May 2021 and have grown from there.”

The capabilities of Tier One Fire Protection have grown, employing 14 staff, and the business is going from strength to strength. Although located in Canberra, they are open to other markets.

Current projects include Boulevarde and Nue for Core Developments, and The Borough with Elevated Living.

A leader in HVAC engineering, construction and maintenance services, Austral Air Conditioning was the ideal partner for the supply, installation and commissioning of air conditioning and ventilation systems which met the design intent and requirements for the new Shirley Smith High School (previously East Gungahlin High School).

“We used specialised fabric ductwork on the project which is one of the first in Australia to be installed,” said General Manager, Sumen Pillay. “This particular fabric duct can automatically adjust the airflow depending on whether the air conditioning system is heating or cooling in order to provide comfort to occupants all year round.”

“A lot of design work was placed into this segment of work due the height of the gym and the need to deliver comfort to the players and spectators at low level seating,” said Sumen. “Based on CFD modelling we carried out, this was the best solution for this application.”

One of the challenges of this project was installing within tight ceiling spaces that contain other building elements and services.

“During the design phase, we reviewed and coordinated our plans

with the structural plans, architectural plans and plans from other services to minimise the number of clashes during the installation,” said Sumen.

In order to expedite the installation time on site, Austral Air used large ductwork modules consisting of 3 or 4 individual ductwork pieces that were pre-assembled in their suppliers’ warehouse, then delivered to site. Each module was constructed with ease of site installation in mind. Lifting lugs and wheels were installed to allow a crane to lift the units and increase the modules to maneuverability across the floor. Once the sections have been installed the wheels are removed.

“It’s a great pleasure working with the ICON team onsite as they have created a team environment amongst all the contractors which has allowed the coordination process for the project to flow smoothly,” said Sumen.

EXPANDING EDUCATION AT U niSC MORETON BAY

DEVELOPER : University of the Sunshine Coast MAIN CONSTRUCTION COMPANY : Badge Constructions

ARCHITECT : Kirk Architects

CONSTRUCTION VALUE : $68 million

The University of the Sunshine Coast's (UniSC) expansion of the Moreton Bay campus, entails the construction of three new buildings, incorporating sustainable prefabricated engineered timber. The new buildings will help support the university's commitment to excellence by providing an additional 12,500m2 to the current floor space, and establishing itself as a pivotal hub for education, research, and industry groups in the region with new teaching and research areas, administration offices, social hubs, a car park, and sports facilities.

UniSC’s first campus opened in 1996. Today its teaching network spans five campuses across South East Queensland and within three connecting UNESCO biosphere reserves and the World Heritage Listed K’gari.

The latest chapter in UniSC’s growth story unfolds at the Moreton Bay Campus. This ambitious expansion involved the construction of three new buildings, utilising sustainable prefabricated engineered timber. This addition spans 12,500m2, encompassing teaching and research spaces, administration offices, social hubs, a car park, and sports facilities.

The new buildings utilise a mixture of domestically-sourced XLam Australian timbers and purpose-sought glue-laminated Hess timbers from Europe.

UniSC Senior Project Manager Kate Robertson said while the initial

objective was to use 100% Australian-grown timber, incorporating European wood had practical and environmental advantages.

“Such are the qualities of the Xlam and Hess timber, there is no need for painting, no need for internal refitting,” said Kate. “I guarantee everybody that walks through will touch the building, feel its warmth, its natural qualities, and it does give off a rather enchanting scent as well.”

The amount of timber UniSC used in the project regrows in the European forestry industry within five-to-six minutes, whereas regrowth in Australian forests is markedly slower due to the size of our plantations.

UniSC engaged award-winning architectural practice KIRK to provide the concept, design and documentation for the Moreton Bay Campus second stage, with BADGE Constructions and Cottee Parker Architects delivering the project under a Design and Construct Contract.

QLD PROJECT FEATURE UniSC MORETON BAY CAMPUS AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION REVIEW 76

“The new buildings not only represent an evolution in the Campus’s history – adding the first working PC2 laboratories and sports facilities to the site – they also provide tactile motivation for those with dreams of a future in disciplines like engineering and project management,” said Kate. “The buildings will be landmarks that push the boundaries, expanding the possibilities in the minds of our students.”

In addition to the aesthetic and functional advantages of the three new buildings, the construction incorporated research elements that allow academics, and their students, to observe data such as the moisture content in the materials over time.

The teaching and learning spaces are designed to foster collaborative and innovative learning experiences, and facilities include research laboratories, student gym, sports hall and sports science facility, a student hub and breakout spaces along with a multilevel car park.

UniSC Moreton Bay is poised to become a pivotal hub for community education, research, business, and industry groups.

Mendham Consultants specialises in the management of risks associated with the storage and handling of hazardous chemicals, including dangerous goods throughout all industries.

For the USC Moreton Bay Campus project, Mendham Consultants developed the laboratory dangerous goods (hazardous chemicals) storage design and undertook the risk-based explosive atmosphere Hazardous Area Classification.

“Mendham Consultants undertakes a risk-based approach to Hazardous Area Classification in laboratories, which is a method it developed in 2005 for UQ,” said Director, Dr Frank Mendham. “This risk-based approach generally reduces onerous hazardous exclusion zones in laboratories, providing increased space for research and training without compromising safety.”

The use of floor mounted appliances such as refrigerators and freezers in laboratories is commonplace, however not many laboratory operators realise the lack of compliant equipment in Australia for use in hazardous areas. There are currently no IECEX compliant units available in this country.

“For this reason, we work to minimise the impacts of hazardous areas on laboratory floors, which typically allows the use of standard refrigerators and freezers,” said Dr Mendham. “In most cases, the hazardous zone at floor level at the Moreton Bay campus was reduced to 20mm above floor level, which is typically less than the castor height of fridges and freezers.”

A project highlight for Mendham Consultants was the opportunity to apply the latest safety standard for both laboratory hazardous chemicals storage and hazardous area classification. “We believe, from a safety viewpoint, that the new Moreton Bay campus design is of the safest laboratory design available with respect to hazardous chemical storage and handling,” said Dr Mendham.

Mendham Consultants has extensive experience in both the design of new facilities and the assessment of existing installations for many clients including: Federal Government, State Governments, Local Councils, major commercial and industrial companies and small to medium enterprises.

G. James was engaged to oversee the comprehensive façade package for the University of Sunshine Coast.

The brief included the design, supply and installation of all external windows, doors, oversize sun blades and large custom screens.

“The integration of the façade into the timber structure posed distinctive challenges, particularly in terms of window surround preparation completed by the builder,” said Project Manager, Daniel Searle. “This step was pivotal in establishing robust waterproofing measures during the seamless amalgamation of the G. James window system into the structure.”

“The project encountered additional complexities, including the necessity for external installation due to slab constraints on internal panel and plant loading,” said Daniel. “Leveraging the collective expertise of G. James management, design and engineering teams, a new die was innovatively crafted to facilitate the external installation into the subframes. “

“Dealing with movement on these buildings was a large hurdle but great teamwork between all parties had issues resolved and dealt with

in a manner that didn’t take away from the final product being sought by the client and the architect.”

G. James also orchestrated a distinctive fabrication, packing and installation sequence tailored to the unique site conditions and program requirements for this job.

“While no construction endeavour is devoid of challenges, sustained and transparent communication with the builder played a vital role in the overall success of the project,” said Daniel. “G.

The scale of the project across both sites required a staggering 30,000m2 of temporary hardstands and haul roads, 21,200m2 of structural slabs, and 31,500m2 of concrete pavements.

In addition to extensive temporary works for haul roads and hardstands, Hutchinson Builders deployed upgraded pavement subgrade to act as temporary hardstands during construction to help navigate the difficulties of access in and around the sites.

Hutchinson Builders was awarded the contract for Warreen Primary school in November 2022 and took the project from design to handover within 12 months. In addition to the 30+ Hutchinson Builders staff dedicated to safety, quality, management, and support, over 3,300 workers attended sites A and B during the course of the project with 460 workers on site at peak times.

VIC PROJECT FEATURE WARREEN PRIMARY SCHOOL AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION REVIEW 84

The overall design of the project included a variety of different material types internally and externally, requiring Hutchinson Builders to work efficiently and closely with designers to ensure they met the high standard of finish without compromising the functionality of the school. To ensure efficiency and functionality in the years to come, the team placed strong focus and resources into the redesign and value management of mechanical services, electrical cabling, lighting, hot water services and landscaping.

Hutchinson Builders worked closely with many stakeholders including VSBA, school representatives, local council, local indigenous representatives, building surveyors, fire authorities, service providers, design consultants/engineers and local community members to deliver on the shared vision of a world-class education complex.

Recently completed projects include Footscray Learning Precinct, Port Melbourne Secondary College, VSBA Bundle B 2022, Bundle A 2023 and Bundle A 2024.

Plumbco are specialist commercial and civil plumbers delivering high-quality plumbing and drainage installations on major building and civil projects throughout Melbourne.

With over 25 years of experience and an extensive portfolio of work within the education and schooling sector, Plumbco’s expertise is called upon for large-scale and complex builds like the Warreen Primary School (previously Truganina North Primary School).

“This large complex project encompassing an overall site area of over 108,000m2 was delivered within 12 months, ahead of schedule and on budget,” said Troy Morris, Director of Plumbco.

“With a 12-month turnaround schedule, we had up to 30 team members including site managers, a design team, a project manager, machine operators, qualified plumbers and apprentices to complete the various elements of the job,” said Troy.

“This project’s scale and complexity weren’t the only challenging elements we faced on this project. The geotechnical constraints including highly reactive H2 soil required drains to be installed with particular care to ensure that settlement and heaving of the ground

would not have a detrimental effect on installed services,” said Troy. “This was alleviated by the use of expansion joints to mitigate the expected movement of slabs and clay plugs used to eliminate water ingress under the slab.”

Plumbco’s focus on this project was largely around safety and sustainability and led the team to design and install recycled water systems for irrigation and toilet flushing, use of 5-6 star rated tapware and fixings and the use of lead-free fittings, materials and fixtures.

Plumbco offers design, consultancy and installation of full hydraulic solutions including civil drainage, fire service, water supply, sewerage systems, trade waste, fire pumps and tanks, and recycled water systems.

Current projects include Clyde North Secondary School and Thompsons West Primary School.

Victorian-based Innovative Window Solutions are specialists in aluminium window and door manufacturing, installation, and glazing. The company was contracted to meet all the Warreen Primary School’s window and glass needs with their expertise in high-end commercial solutions.

Innovative Window Solutions have a reputation for delivering premium, highgrade residential and commercial aluminium doors and windows. Their functional, aesthetic, high-end architecturally residential aluminium windows and commercial framing solutions are tailor-made to suit each client’s specific requirements.

Innovative Window Solutions provides and installs the ThermalHEART™ line of aluminum windows for both commercial and residential applications, aiming to fulfill the current 6-star rating requirements mandated in the construction industry.

“This new education facility will be a fantastic space for learning in a suburb that is continuing to grow,” said Matt Drake, Director of Innovative Window Solutions. “We’re proud to have been involved with the build of this project and a project of its size.”

“We offer a complete, end-to-end service, which means for this project, we manufactured all of the components and glazed the glass to ensure they met the architectural needs and energy efficiency specifications. Our skilled and experienced team handled all aspects of a project, from choosing top-quality products

to selecting finishes and customising the final result to meet the client’s needs.”

“Our team installed over 2,000 items throughout the build in small and large layouts and many configurations. This included combining doors, fixed panels, awning sashes, sliding windows and automatic sliding doors,” said Matt.

“We used only Australian sources quality products that are designed to withstand the harsh Australian conditions while providing comfort and remaining aesthetically pleasing, which included AWS 424 frames with 616 awning sash inserts and 462 sliding window inserts, 426 front glazed frames, 406 front glazed series for the internal glazing along with 105 series acoustic frame and 52 series hinged doors.”

The company recently expanded to a new 4,000m2 factory, in order to increase manufacturing capacity, while providing a safer, more efficient workflow for staff.

“We needed the added capacity that our new factory provided us to meet the quantity demands of this project, as it is one of the largest builds we have worked on, not to mention the added pressure of the short window of time we had to manufacture, glaze and install all of the various components across the site.”

“We began work on site in May 2023 and completed works in December 2023. This project, being a large-scale build with a tight 8-month turnaround time, required us

to contract additional labour. To ensure we would complete works on time, we deployed 45 of our own staff and contracted another 15 on-site daily working across the various stages of the project,” said Matt.

“Despite the additional manpower we placed on site, we faced an industry-wide challenge of finding skilled labour. With multiple projects running concurrent with the Warreen Primary School project, we needed to be resourceful with our time, efforts, and management of staff and labour to ensure all projects were completed on time and to specification.”

Innovative Window Solutions manufacture and install their ThermalHEART™ range of commercial and residential aluminium windows have been designed to help meet the 6-star rating requirements now necessary in the construction industry.

Play spaces are central to primary schools, and the Truganina Primary School is no different. Activity Playgrounds, the specialist manufacturer and supplier of commercial playground equipment in Melbourne, was contracted to create the outdoor play and recreational spaces for the Warreen Primary School (previously Truganina Primary School).

“This fantastic new school is one of the largest single school projects we have ever completed,” said Miles Rayner, managing director of Activity Playgrounds. “It was also the first time we utilised a ‘weathered steel’ powder coat finish on some of the items, including all posts, platforms and some steel support bars, and we couldn’t be happier with the end result.”

“Our team was tasked with installing numerous play items comprising of the following: one senior area playground, intermediate area playground, one junior area playground, two 6m pyramid nets, three play cubes, two rope play structures, over 213 posts, 800 linear meters of timber, and a large number of overhead play activities.

Work began on site in June 2023 with a specialised installation team of five and was completed in November 2023.

“One of the challenges we faced was the large amount of rock on site, affecting our digging works and requiring us to bring in a 4.5t excavator with a rock auger to achieve the correct depths,” said Miles. “With the larger machines, we could complete the work smoothly, and the final results look great.”

Proudly Australian-owned and made, Activity Playgrounds has been a manufacturer and supplier of commercial playground equipment in Melbourne since 1991.

Amongst others, current projects include four parks for Bass Coast Council, two for Cardinia Shire Council, and two for Hobson Bays City Council.
