Over the past three months, Broad has received fantastic news regarding the achievement of a 5 Star NABERS rating for the Alluvion building in Perth’s CBD and the achievement of a 5 Star Green Star - Multi Unit Residential As Built v1 rating for the Monash University Student Accommodation project in Clayton, Victoria.

This is a fantastic achievement by the civil team and I look forward to celebrating many more project accolades to come.

The modifications will involve re surfacing of the existing platforms to ensure that they provide a smooth surface and will include the installation of tactile pavers to guide passengers who are visually impaired. Existing passenger access ramps onto the platforms will be modified to ensure that they are suitable for disabled access and also that all the station features such as ticket machines and passenger shelters are accessible. All of these works will be undertaken whilst the stations remain live which will increase the complexity of the works considerably
Wickham Julutharndu Maya Central Facilities Building, WA In late 2010 Rio Tinto announced plans to expand their Pilbara iron ore operations from 225 Mt/a to 283 Mt/a in 2013 and to 353 Mt/a by 2015. The Leighton 333 Growth Alliance was established to help Rio Tinto and their EPCMs achieve this ambitious target. Under the Alliance all of Leighton Contractors ‘Operating Units’ are made available to Rio Tinto and their partners for the purpose of delivering a diversified range of project delivery services. As a partner in the Leighton 333 Growth Alliance Broad’s expertise lies in the fields of Industrial buildings, housing, camps, refurbishment, project management, schools, hospitals, shopping centres, offices, civil works and development. Broad are pleased to announce they have been successful in securing the Wickham Julutharndu Maya project as part of the 333 Growth Alliance and has received a Notice of Contract Award. Broad tendered the project in the second half of 2011 and negotiated final contract terms with Rio Tinto to deliver its facility in the early part of this year with assistance of the 333 Framework team. The project team has since commenced actions to mobilise to site with a tight 11 month schedule to complete all works ready for occupation in late March 2013. The works involve some minor demolition, importation of fill and piling with a slab on ground. The main structure is steel framed with a variety of cladding solutions to provide a benchmark finish for this type of facility. The roof is a fully sealed construction and the internal fit out involving extensive cool rooms and storage as well as a fully equipped commercial kitchen. Substantial dining and recreation facilities are also provided with outdoor shade structures and landscaping solutions. The facility will be used to feed and provide recreation for both residential and fly in fly out employees in the town of Wickham which is currently undergoing a $300 million plus expansion in accommodation projects

The transformation of Dumas House Owned by the Department of Finance’s, Building Management and Works business, Dumas House is located on an elevated position across from the spectacular Kings Park Botanical Gardens, at the western entrance to St Georges Terrace, Perth and boasts a close proximity to Parliament House, West Perth. Since 1966, when it was opened by the then Premier of Western Australia, David Brand, Dumas House has always accommodated government offices and Government Ministers of one department or another. In 2011, Broad Construction Services (WA) was awarded the Dumas House fitout and base building works contract.
Magnificent views of Perth from office space in Dumas House.
The project, which commenced in August 2011, involved works to the lower and upper basement, external lower and ground level car park and the refurbishment of offices on levels 1 through to 14.
Office space, ready to move in to, Dumas House.
With formal practical completion reached on 14 August 2012, the transformation of the offices and the finished interior features are stunning. The new design encompasses earthy tones and patterns of Kings Park throughout the levels while offering tenants magnificent views of Perth. The construction programme included 38 separable portions (SP) which were delivered over the 11 months. The building was also occupied on various levels throughout the entire works and the Broad team worked consciously to ensure disruption was kept to a minimum. As each SP was handed over the buildings population began to steadily increase to more than double the tenancy from when the works commenced, creating a diverse array of challenges. During the construction, Western Power took the opportunity to replace the 46 year old building substation which involved significant building works to meet current electrical, mechanical and fire rating standards. A single window of opportunity was the Christmas holiday period 27 December 2011 to 2 January 2012. Broad incorporated the additional works into the construction programme and accommodated the upgrade of the building substation. Paul McCann, Project Manager for GHD sent a letter of commendation to Broad praising them for their accommodation and work. “Led on site by Leonard Munday, Broad Construction created and maintained a program of works to achieve the substation upgrade and changeover in a seamless manner. It was completed precisely on
schedule, without any safety incidents and with no disruption to existing building services at power-on. This required the highest level of coordination, teamwork and engagement between Broad, Western Power, the Project Manager and a range of subcontractors. Many site works were only possible during the high voltage supply shutdown, which entailed resilient planning with contingent allowances, given the unavoidable timing in the holiday period. Even latent conditions were dealt with expediently and no defects affected the completion on time.” Wrote Mr McCann. The Dumas House project team had a fantastic working relationship with the client and were committed to and focused on the completion of works
to the highest of quality and safety standards. Building Management and Works Project Director, Michael Webster said, “Broad completed the project within tight timelines, made even more challenging by additional works which evolved during the project, necessitated by the age of the building. Building Management and Works commends Broad for its professional and collaborative approach with all stakeholders, allowing it to meet project objectives and the expectations of Dumas House’s occupants.” Many elements of the building possess heritage value and the building itself is a significant landmark. The works have increased the value and functionality of the building to ensure the preservation of an iconic Perth landmark Broadview _ issue 19

capabilities, creating a dedicated civil division to reflect their increasing involvement in the delivery of civil infrastructure services. The combination of Broad’s civil and building capabilities adds a further dimension to the civil infrastructure market, extending the scope of project capabilities and services offered to our clients. To oversee all the civil works undertaken by Broad, Khanh Nguyen was appointed to the role of General Manager – Civil. The past 24 months has seen the civil operation grow significantly to become a recognised player in the construction industry, working with key clients in the public and private sector. The civil team’s first awarded project was the St Georges Terrace Streetscape Enhancement, for the City of Perth, in one of the busiest parts of Perth’s CBD. As a testament to Broad’s civil capability, the project was recently presented with a Master Builders Association of Western Australia Excellence in Construction Award; Best Civil Engineering Works under $20 million. Broad’s civil operation is now entering its next growth phase. The team are focused on their business strategy that will consolidate operations and concentrate on important areas of safety, systems and processes, sustainable growth opportunities and organisational development. Over the next six months the team will be delivering a number of projects in Western Australia and Queensland and are currently busy tendering on projects in both metro and regional areas across Australia. The successful award and outcome of Broad’s civil projects is the direct result of the hard work and dedication of Broad staff to deliver safe and quality projects. With a strong foundation to work from, the civil operation of the business will continue to successfully diversify across the country

The Right Honourable the Lord Mayor, Lisa Scaffidi said “I was very pleased to hear of Broad’s success at the MBA Awards.

Alluvion achieves 5 Star NABERS rating The 22,400 sqm Alluvion office building in Perth’s CBD, has been awarded a 5 Star Base Building NABERS Energy rating, making it one of the most energy efficient NABERS rated office buildings in Western Australia. The Building, which is jointly owned by Cape Bouvard and Commonwealth Property Office Fund (CPA), was completed in 2010 and the achieved NABERS rating is based on the first 12 month rating period. Broad Construction Services (WA) Pty Ltd was awarded the Design and Construction contract to build the 22 storey A Grade development in 2007, and entered into a Commitment Agreement to achieve a 4.5 Star NABERS rating. All stakeholders, including Broad, the joint building owners and the property manager, Jones Lang LaSalle, worked together closely to ensure that the NABERS target was not only met but exceeded.
Broad General Manager - Building WA, Peter Moore said “This is a fantastic result for all involved in the project. With approximately only one in ten office Base Building NABERS energy ratings attaining their target in the building’s first operational year, Broad WA has, so far, achieved a 100 per cent success rate of delivering and exceeding our client’s desired NABERS targets”. Broad Building Services Manager, Green Star Accredited Professional, NABERS Assessor, Harry Boyle said “This is a tremendous achievement. Using traditional cost effective designs but still achieving industry best practice for energy usage. This result places the Alluvion building amongst the top tier of energy performance for office buildings in Australia.”
Jones Lang LaSalle General Manager, Property & Asset Management WA, Tim Boden said “The awarding of a 5 Star NABERS rating is a very important success for all that have been involved in the building. CPA, Cape Bouvard and Jones Lang LaSalle have all got very strong sustainability drivers and we will not be resting on our laurels as we push to implement further sustainability initiatives in the building.” CPA Fund Manager, Charles Moore, said: “We are very pleased with this result. This asset is in line with our strategy of owning quality office buildings. We believe that having assets with strong sustainability credentials makes good business sense and is in the best long term interest of our unit holders.” Cape Bouvard General Manager, Lee Pinkerton, added “It was good to see examples of the property industry achieving positive sustainable outcomes.”

Heart Kids – Work//Zone Broad is currently constructing a new generation of A-grade office space in Perth’s CBD for developer Charter Hall called Work//Zone. For the duration of this project, Charter Hall have selected HeartKids WA as their partnering charity with the aim to raise $50,000 through workplace giving and fundraising events involving contractors, consultants, agents, tenants and the local community. HeartKids WA provides dedicated support, encouragement and hope to families of children with Heart Disease, while raising awareness and vital funding into the causes of this chronic disease. All the money raised goes towards funding a much needed part time Support Coordinator at Princess Margaret Hospital and a number of self-monitoring CoaguChek machines for child therapy. On Wednesday, 27 June 2012 Charter Hall and Heart Kids invited various stakeholders, subcontractors and Broad staff to a gold coin barbecue sausage sizzle lunch to launch the charity partnership. As the smell of the cooking sausages wafted through a busy site, swarms of hard working subcontractors soon filled the event area with donations in hand ready to purchase a warm sausage on what was a cold and drizzly afternoon. To kick-start the donations Charter Hall donated a very generous $10,000 and Broad followed suit with a further $5,000. The site team and subcontractors also gave generously raising a total $1,648. This was a fantastic start to the charity partnership and the site team will continue to assist Charter Hall to raise the much needed funds for HeartKids.
