Project Challenges

Large tilt up construction building which required planning throughout the casting process and stringent OHS documenting/reporting protocols were implemented throughout the duration of the works. Safety of all personnel and subcontractors was always number one priority, so full safety documentation approval required prior to access to site for all personnel, as well as, inductions, site toolbox meetings and inspections.

Public access control put in place during construction (fencing, hoarding, signs) due to proximity to surrounding operations and local traffic, to minimise disruption to nearby operations.
