New Projects


work gets underway

Aged Care Facility

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

Riverside Waterbank The Riverside Waterbank Project commenced early April and consists of the supply of labour, material and plant for the construction, testing and maintenance of civil works.

The Riverside Waterbank project includes the construction of a replacement storm water pipe to discharge into the Swan River to facilitate future development on the site. The bio remediation is a trial conducted under the direction of the environmental consultant to allow the treatment of contaminated material excavated on site prior to re-use on site. The trial is being undertaken during this preliminary phase of the project to assess suitability prior to the commencement of the subsequent stages which will involve considerably greater volumes of excavation required to facilitate the proposed development. This development will include

reach Practical Completion.

Georges Terrace reached Practical Completion on the third and final stage in March. The three stage refurbishment of 150 St Georges Terrace in Perth CBD comprised of Stage 2A, the extension of the ground and lower ground floors to create a new entrance area for the Commonwealth Bank and the adjacent lift lobby to the building. Stage 2B has created a new bar/bistro to the western side of 150 St Georges Terrace underneath the existing central park covered area and Stage 2C involved the creation of a new restaurant to the northern elevation of 150 St Georges Terrace overlooking the public space gardens to the rear of Central Park. Due to the site location, high volume of public movements and complexity, the project has been a challenging but rewarding development for everyone involved. The refurbishment has resulted in a spectacular feature to St Georges Terrace. The new restaurant overlooks Perth’s inner city gardens in Central Park and the stylish bar and bistro is set to be a new local hot spot in the heart of Perth’s CBD

Amberley, QLD

The New RAAF Security and Fire School The final stage of the new Security and Fire School on the RAAF Amberley Base in Queensland was completed August 2010 and the facilities are now in full operation. Involving seven stages and containing multiple buildings of different construction phases, the new Security and Fire School at the RAAF Amberley Base undertook a major transformation to provide Australia’s Defence Students and Staff with one of the finest and contemporary training facilities in the country. The construction package, which is number 5 of 13 project packages comprising the Stage 3 redevelopment of the base, involved the construction of two training buildings, an auditorium, a logistics warehouse, and the refurbishment of existing accommodation facilities, landscaping, road works and a car park. During construction the military base remained operational. To minimise disruption to the Defence personnel during the renovation of their offices, Broad established temporary housing facilities in the area marked for a future car park. A temporary dog training area was also set up so teaching could continue without interruption throughout the entire construction phase. It was a smooth transition for all personnel and their canine co-workers. 12

Both roof structures were steel formed, insulated with a metal clad roof, aluminium windows, a combination of honed concrete block, sheet metal and panels, pre-finished CFC sheets and appolic external cladding. The internal fit-outs consisted of plasterboard lined walls, fixed and tiled ceilings, carpet, vinyl and tiled floors.

Extra Offices for Western Australia In an exciting expansion of Broad’s business the need for new office space had become quite apparent. Office space has been acquired very close to the head office on Parliament Place, West Perth and a number of Broad staff will take up residence in the new office facilities located on the ground floor

Aspire Schools, Bundilla

Overall, the site progress is ahead of contract by approximately two months. The first phase, namely the administration building, is likely to be handed over on the due date, late October 2011.

Previously the site was a fill site constructed by the contractor/developer of the area and as such required only a minimal amount of earthworks when compared with the likes of the Bellbird site.

The layout of the site poses some logistical problems as the only access is along the same route as the services trenches and walkways, so careful control of the works is needed to overcome this bottleneck.

The construction is progressing well with foundations for the first six blocks already installed. The slab for the administration block has been poured and the steel framing is progressing.

The team’s site contouring and drainage strategy towards the existing dam should alleviate the previous history of flooding in back yard during heavy and sustained rainfall

Murrumba Downs

The under slab plumbing systems have been installed for the first five blocks and the concreters are working on the slab preparations. Electrical, drainage and water connections have been completed and site drainage is progressing.

An environmental challenge at Bundilla has been the construction of settlement ponds to manage the site overland flow. Queensland’s inclement weather has continued to cause delays with the site losing a total 18 working days since the commencement of works in late January

BER Eagle Junction Due to the floods in early January all works were stopped by Council utilities, other than emergency works. A live sewer diversion was required to be carried out by the urban Utilities team to enable foundation work to be completed with diversion work completed early march. The foundation works have been carried out and preparations have begun for the ground floor slab to be poured, putting the team on track for a mid August completion date

Works are progressing on a number of fronts with the existing eastern section of the building refurbishment nearing completion with floor coverings underway, whilst the newly constructed western extension is similarly advanced

Monash University Student

New AQIS offices will also be constructed in the land side Arrivals area, along with a new covered walkway constructed on the apron. The works will be completed in stages, within special construction zones, by the end of September 2011

JD Hardie Centre The JD Hardie Centre redevelopment project has made significant progress with the structure and external cladding complete and internal fit out works now well advanced. Key milestones of making the building watertight where achieved despite the interruptions of two tropical cyclones.

90% complete. The footpath construction works between Howard Street and Sherwood Court has commenced and the concrete beam construction and granite curb installation works are complete

St Georges Terrace Streetscape

Woolworths Reedy Creek

Currently the northern footpath and median strip construction works are 95% complete. Remaining works include finalising the installation of street furniture. Footpath demolition work on the south has commenced and is 90% complete. There are some demolition works still outstanding on the section between Sherwood Court and Barrack Street, which will be followed by piling works and ground preparation works for the construction of the footpath. Installation of storm water pipe works, new power cables, irrigation pipe works and communication conduits are complete on the south footpath.

International Airport Terminal Upgrade Broad have been awarded the first phase of works to refurbish the International Terminal. The works have commenced and include the upgrade of the Arrivals and Departures Concourses on Levels One and Two, as well as the upgrade of the Customs processing area, Baggage Hall and AQIS search areas on the Ground Floor.

The project team continues to achieve great results and their strong relationship with Monash University and DCWC continues. The recent completion of the prototype room has reinforced the quality of the final design to Monash

Accommodation The Monash NRAS project, awarded to BroadAPM in June, is now well underway. The concrete structure was completed in early March (22,000sqm), with structural steel almost complete to the top floors. Internal services rough-in and drywall is progressing well on both buildings and facade installation has now commenced. Extensive planning is being carried out for completion and handover of the 600 rooms and associated common areas. Design work is now substantially complete with the 1st round submission for the Green Star Design Rating submitted in February. The team is confident in achievement of the nominated 5-Star rating and the focus is now on the documentation required for the As-Built rating.

The Reedy Creek site has been fenced and is now currently waiting for local authority approvals to enable the team to get started. The site is surrounded by a council sewer main with an easement and a 1.2 metre water infrastructure pipe that also has an easement. Broad is not allowed to construct any building over these easements and the authorities have to approve all design drawings prior to giving final approval to enable work to commence. Approvals are expected soon and the team are looking forward to starting work on site

Mount Sheridan Plaza

Concrete piling works for the new multi function street poles in the footpath areas on the south is ongoing, with some to also be installed between Sherwood Court and Barrack Street.

The project has been delayed substantially by rain. Since starting on site in early January up until the end of March the team has only had three weeks of production. In this time they have managed to start the bulk earth works to the Kmart basement.

The footpath construction works, including concrete slabs, kerbing and paving installation, between William Street and Howard Street is

The demolition of certain areas has also progressed, making way for the reconfiguration of the existing parking areas
