The construction of the Oceaneering Facility consisted of building 4 new buildings with an extensive concrete hardstand and bitumen surrounding area. The facility is being constructed at the Jandakot precinct and was undertaken as a Design and Construct contract. The project was tendered off a few sketches and according to briefs provided by Jandakot Airport and Oceaneering. Following award of the contract, the Design team were engaged to produce documentation for the construction of the facility and ensure that both lessee and lessor briefs were being fulfilled. Partway through the design phase the client decided to integrate the fitout of the facility with the construction of the base build. PS Structures were able to accommodate this extensive fit out package to be completed within the original construction time.
The main workshop is 5000 square meters and the construction constitutes structural steel framework, dado concrete tilt panels, internal mezzanine structures, internal block walls, large roller doors, colourbond cladding and numerous internal rooms with various cabinetry, vinyl and tile finishes. The main workshop floor was constructed using fibre reinforced slabs to improve time efficiency and provide a very hard wearing and durable finish to the required standards expected at Jandkot precinct. Workshop 2 and 3 were of similar structure but smaller in size.
The office building was a two storey construction with the structure being structural steel, tilt panels, insitu concrete, curtain walls and insulated panels. There was a front and rear balcony constructed with Ultrabond cladding and glazed balustrades to both. Two internal insitu concrete stairwells and lift were constructed in the Office building. The internal walls were mainly glazed partitions and gyprock walls. A mixture of ceilings between tiled and flush gyprock were constructed depending on the level of acoustic requirements of certain areas of the office. Toilets were constructed on both levels.
An extensive concrete hardstand area (in excess of 15,000 metres squared) was constructed as per the Clients’ brief, to accommodate the required loads of machinery being used at the facility. This area has been integrated with bitumen car park areas and extensive landscaping to Jandakot precinct requirements.
