Aveling training facility is an $11 million facility that has opened at Jandakot to meet the growing demand for heavy industry workforce training. The 15 room training centre is evidence of the investment benefits in the resources and related industries. The building process included elements such as structural steel frame work, concrete tilt panel and traditional brick cladding elements. This was complimented by extensive aluminium window and door installations with feature Alucabond cladding. Read More >>
The Murdoch University Sports Science Hub Project consisted of the construction of a new teaching and sports science testing facility, new change rooms and a refurbishment of the administration area of the existing gymnasium. The site was located in close proximity to existing buildings and tennis courts making access difficult and careful programming of paramount importance.
The main building includes a teaching room, performance lab, strength and conditioning centre, an exercise and physiology room. The main feature of the building is the 40m long suspended concrete running track, which dissects the building. A specialist recessed ‘force plate’ measuring device was installed into the middle of the track.
Extensive propping was required to an existing suspended concrete slab of the adjoining building whilst new change rooms were constructed underneath. The soffit of the existing slab was required to be reinforced with carbon fibre strips which was undertaken by a specialist contractor. Detailed programming was required to this area of the project to co-ordinate the construction of the propping, in ground services, concrete footings and load bearing walls.
The major services works included the diversion of main sewer line, new 400m long high voltage cable upgrade, and extension of the chilled water pipe work. The mechanical services installation was a significant part of the project, which allows for the future extension of the air-conditioning system into the existing building

Construction of a four level brick/concrete walled auditorium/classroom/cafeteria building with steel structured roof clad in marine grade colourbond metal including extensive soft and hard landscape externally. This new building facility was constructed in two stages, with stage 1 comprising of the construction and completion of balconies, teaching rooms and toilet facilities within a tight timeframe. The remaining building (stage 2 works-main auditorium and cafeteria) which included associated road works, external services, external paving and finishes, along with the final commissioning of all electrical, hydraulic, fire, lift and mechanical services being installed.
This complex project involved major excavation works for the under stage area to facilitate the construction of retaining walls, and the extensive diversion and re-routing of existing plumbing, reticulation and electrical services outside of the new building works
Contract works also involved the construction of a new tensile fabric structure mounted on columns and linked to the main building located to the north of the new building structure. A new electrical transformer and fire storage tank facility also required upgrading to the existing services.
Close interface and co-ordination with works directed by the College was of paramount importance. This included the installation of the following: air-conditioning, reticulation, stage equipment, lighting, landscaping contracts, educational equipment and loose furniture.
