In an exciting expansion of Broad’s business, Broad has established a new civil construction division Broad Civil. Works have already begun on Broad’s first awarded civil project, the St Georges Terrace Streetscape Enhancement in the Perth CBD.

I would like to take this opportunity to personally welcome to Broad a new Civil Manager in Khanh Nguyen. Khanh joins us from DownerEDi and will oversee the initial phases of the civil division. Broad is fortunate that Khanh has also been joined by some of his former colleagues who sought to join the new division, namely Site Manager Lee McCabe, Project Engineer Scott Maisey and Civil Estimator Krishna Pillai. With Peter McMorrow now on board full-time as Executive Chairman at Broad, his expanded role will provide a wealth of additional knowledge and experience across the company. As perhaps the most experienced civil construction leader in Australia, it is our intention to exploit Peter’s expertise to the full.

Australia, Broad began work by Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), a new and innovative project delivery method. Another notable milestone in the Broad story is our Joint Venture in Victoria, BroadAPM being awarded its first contract. Work has commenced on the D&C 618-bed student accommodation facility for Monash University at its Clayton campus in Melbourne.

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending Broads handover of the St Martins buildings to our client, St Martins Properties.

New Projects work gets underway

Reporting on what’s new and happening across the nation at Broad.

Western Australian Prisons Broad has begun work on the Fast Track Prisoner Accommodation Project for the Government of Western Australia involving the simultaneous construction of five two-storey accommodation blocks at Albany, Casuarina and Hakea prisons.

Broad were selected as Managing Contractor for the construction of the new prisoner accommodation blocks spread over three locations in Western Australia.

The construction works will utilise large prefabricated components to enhance both the speed of delivery and management of prison security logistics.

One of the first in WA, the Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) project is tracking well to date. ECI is a new and innovative project delivery method which combines the principles of an alliance type project with the traditional D&C (Design and Construct) type contract. This enables all parties to be engaged in the early stages of the project compared to more conventional type of contracts. Overall this has given a better understanding by all involved in the project and its potential risks.

One cell block will be constructed at Albany, and two cell blocks each at Casuarina and Hakea. Each block will contain 64 cells accommodating two inmates per cell in a double bunk configuration with each cell including a shower and toilet.

Other advantages to the ECI process: • Quicker construction periods • Early procurement of sub-contractors and materials • Fewer variations • Fully integrated team approach TAKING SHAPE: The last of the tilt-up panel installation at Hakea Prison.

• Better integration of construction techniques.

The predominantly pre-cast concrete structures will feature suspended pre-cast upper floors, sandwich panel roofing and additional unique prison security features when compared with a traditional building. The Hakea component of the project is beyond the perimeter wall of the current prison facility while the other two construction sites at Casuarina and Albany are within the existing prison facilities. Working within operating prisons requires strict adherence to security protocols throughout all aspects of the project delivery. Emphasising Broad’s capability to handle sensitive projects, the security management challenges greatly affect the logistics of the build, with clearances required for all personnel and limited movements around the construction site. Fast Track Prisoner Accommodation Project Manager, Siljan Stojkovski , said “A greater emphasis on forward planning is required by the site team to ensure there is minimal disruption to the operation of the prison during the construction of the cell blocks across the three prison sites”

New Woolworths Shopping Centre for Gladstone

Broad is preparing to construct a new three-storey library and learning facility at Eagle Junction Primary School in Brisbane. The project, funded through the Building the Education Revolution program, will see approximately 1,400sqm of learning space constructed over three floors on the 480sqm site footprint. The new building will house arts and drama on the ground floor, the library on the first floor and three classrooms on the second floor. The reinforced concrete structure will have precast floors with a topping slab, a weather board and concrete exterior and colorbond roofing. After finalising the design aspects of the D&C contract, Broad embarked on the removal of two existing transportable classrooms and other site preparations to enable construction to commence. The new facilities are scheduled for completion for the 2011 school year

Perth, WA

St Martins towers - a fresh look The redevelopment of the three adjacent buildings for St Martin’s Properties reached practical competition on 19th October.

In one of Perth’s prime CBD locations, numbers 40, 44 and 50 St Georges Terrace have undergone a variety of transformations including new external façades, interior works and entrance upgrades. The scope of the project saw buildings number 40 and 50 undergo recladding to the façades, providing the 35 year old buildings with an ultra new look through the use of alpolic cladding. Mast climbers were used across the project on the public façades, while areas not primarily visible to the public underwent maintenance and painting with access gained via swing stages. Broad also refurbished the ground floors of each of the buildings with glazing works and improvements to the entrance canopies. The bulk of the ground floor works were made to 50 St Georges Terrace which saw the former NAB banking chamber transformed into an ultra modern retail arcade using extensive glazing, aluminum louvers and highly polished Terrazzo flooring resulting in a bright open feel to the retail arcade. The refurbishment to the ground floor of 44 St Georges Terrace has resulted in a welcoming environment for the 37 storey tower by using highly polished black granite stone to the walls, complementing the existing stone and creating an effortless through-flow to the arcade of number 50 St Georges Terrace. Number 50 has also seen changes to ten of its upper floors which have been refurbished to an excellent standard and will provide 1st class office facilities for the new tenants who will commence their fit outs during the coming months. The project was a return to the St Georges Terrace site for Broad, five years on from an original upgrade of the forecourt and entrance to the St Martin’s Tower at number 44. Broad WA General Manager Nick Cater said it was the relationship with the client which had been instrumental in the awarding of the repeat business and highlighted that Broad’s attention to detail brings rewards. Coordinating the project’s interface with the public presented itself as one of the biggest challenges. Due to strict noise restrictions during

Deception Bay, QLD

A new ALDI store for Deception Bay normal business hours, the team clocked a lot of out of hours work, in addition to traffic management requirements for deliveries on what is a main arterial road in Perth’s CBD and a high volume pedestrian area. Broad’s experience and systems provided a strong base for handling the complexities. Project Manager, David McNichol said ‘The project team have worked effortlessly over the past 12 months and to reach practical completion on time and to the satisfaction of the client, this is a testimony to their dedication and commitment and we look forward to working with St Martins Properties again in the near future.’

Customers have been welcomed to the latest ALDI store in Queensland at Deception Bay. Broad Queensland completed work on the ‘new look’ 1,650sqm store in early June with the store officially opening on July 8, 2010.

BEFORE: The towers preparing for the mast climbing to commence.

A number of new pilot features have been included in the store, with Deception Bay the first to utilise “picture frame” precast panels instead of the traditional plain panels. A series of different polished concrete areas were also included in the back of house sections of the building as a guide to flooring options for future developments. The pre-cast concrete and structural steel building included the shop floor, storage and refrigeration areas, staff facilities and a plant room, plus the external colonnade and concrete and asphalt car park and access areas.

AFTER: The finished towers stand proudly on St Georges Terrace.

Project Manager Greg Cuff said despite Queensland’s extensive wet season the store was delivered in line with the client’s expectations

construction site into a leading aged care environment. Member for Charlton, Hon Greg Combet MP officially opened the centre and specifically noted the high quality of works he had witnessed throughout the complex. The Directors of the CBCS team with whom Broad dealt with on a weekly basis, all spoke in the highest terms of a relationship which was based on confidence, trust and integrity as the project had powered its way through the various phases of works. A selection of musical interludes by the Waratah Chorale throughout the opening not only entertained the guests with their angelic voices, but in doing so, provided life and light into the very fabric of the building which will stay with all who attended well into the future. During the speeches provided by CBCS Chairman and Directors Tony Follard and Ray Dupen, the entire Broad Team were directly and personally thanked for their efforts, most specifically Project Manager Ben Kulhanek, Site Manager Michael Nebauer and Administrator James Douglas. Their great personal pride in the works was recognised for its enormous contribution to the successful delivery of such a quality project.

Broad constructed the 60 bed facility for Christian Brethren Community Services (CBCS) and more than 250 guests helped bring life and warmth to Groves House and welcome the new residents home on July 17.

As the guests departed, there was a proud moment for the Broad Team to hear a new resident who was proudly showing off her new home to family and friends say, “I think it’s beautiful”.

Melbourne, VIC

Shows its skills at Monash The BroadAPM Joint Venture in Victoria has been awarded its first contract and construction has started. The design and construction of a 618-bed student accommodation facility for Monash University at its Clayton campus in Melbourne is a fantastic start for the emerging relationship between Broad Construction Services (NSW/VIC) and APM Group. Broad Managing Director Kari Rummukainen said the project confirmed the strength the joint venture provided as a competitive alternative across South Eastern Australia. “The Monash University Project highlights the combined skills offered by BroadAPM and is a superb foundation from which to continue to build,” he said. “I am particularly impressed with how well the project has commenced and the quality and professionalism of all involved. This strong start to the project directly reflects the strength and experience both parties bring to BroadAPM”. The integration of procedures and policies from the two companies has provided BroadAPM with the combination of an extensive catalogue of successful projects in Victoria and the strength and experience of a national operation. The Monash facility will be the first university residential project in Australia to target a Green Star certification and is aiming for a 5 star rating. It is also the first student accommodation project to attract funding through the National Rental Affordability Scheme. BroadAPM started the design phase of the project in July, with construction now underway and completion scheduled for late 2011. The facility is architecturally designed by BVN Architecture, with services and environmentally sustainable design conducted by Norman Disney & Young, and structural design by Bonacci. 10

Broadview _ issue 12

The design is for two five storey buildings each containing 300 residential units with associated common facilities and amenities over 22,000sqm. The Green Star Design and As-Built rating under the Multi-Unit Rating Tool will be sought through exceptional passive design, in combination with active features such as grey water treatment and a 140Kw photovoltaic array.

Commenting on the project, Romilly Madew, Chief Executive of the Green Building Council of Australia said, “Universities around Australia have shown strong leadership in the green building arena. We are delighted with Monash University’s commitment to achieve a Green Star rating for this project which will set the benchmark for future campus accommodation projects.”

A new direction for Broad The new civil arm of the business will initially be part of the Western Australian operations and focus on the delivery of civil works packages and ultimately look to provide Broad with the ability to deliver complete civil and construction works to the market. In order to strengthen its move in this direction, Broad has welcomed a new Civil Manager in Khanh Nguyen. Khanh will oversee the initial phases of the civil division, reporting to WA General Manager Nick Cater.

widened granite paved footpaths, increased central median width, new pedestrian crossings, improved and larger bus shelters, street furniture and tree plantings and associated landscaping. The objective of the streetscape upgrade is to create a sense of arrival in the city centre, where the emphasis is moved from through traffic to a pedestrian friendly environment. ‘Pinch points’ in the pedestrian areas will be eliminated by repositioning some of the bus shelters, while businesses with wide forecourts adjacent to the area will be encouraged to introduce more sitting and alfresco opportunities. Works began on the Terrace in September 2010 with completion scheduled in mid 2011.

Khanh has more than 14 years engineering experience in civil construction and maintenance and joins Broad from the role of General Manager, Infrastructure and Asset Management with DownerEDi Works. His extensive experience in bid direction, engineering and operations management has also seen him engaged in key relationships with government. In addition to seeking and bidding for new works, the team will put their skill towards Broad’s first awarded civil project, the St Georges Terrace Streetscape Enhancement. The works for the City of Perth, in the heart of the Central Business District will see the reduction of the vehicular traffic lanes from three to two in both directions between William and Barrack Streets. Each will include a dedicated bus lane.

While the initial activities will be in WA, Broad Civil will look to explore appropriate opportunities in other regions as the business matures

Included in the project is the demolition of existing infrastructure and replacement with

Swimming time at Narbethong It is not every day Broad builds a new swimming pool five metres above ground level, but to overcome the location challenges of Narbethong Special School’s new facility ... that’s what we did.

The biggest challenge for the 11 metre x 5 metre training pool at the special needs facility in Brisbane’s East was the school’s location, which is effectively on a flood plain. Therefore, the pool had to be raised above the flood plain to what is equivalent to the facility’s second storey and adjoining an existing three storey building.

The five-level car park features efficient, sensor-controlled lighting which closes down when there is no customer movement, thereby reducing energy use and costs. Solar panels on the roof supply energy to the electric car-recharging points. The building is designed for natural ventilation while rainwater will be returned to the underground water table through soak wells.
