The project involved the construction of an outstanding $8 million development for Ascot Capital and the IOT Group on Marriot Road in Jandakot City. This world-class workshop and office facility was built to client requirements for the benefit of future lessees, with the structure designed with both current and future growth in mind. The scope of works included the construction of a secure storage facility for hazardous goods, equipment, tools, machinery servicing the oil and gas exploration industry. A further requirement of the facility was to accommodate the handling of large amounts of stored casings and pipework, using a 32-tonne loading plant. The workshop required power upgrades to allow for the operation of machinery, welding and fabrication, NDT services, painting, pressure testing and pipe cleaning. Large roller shutters and bi-fold doors were installed to allow for the movement of equipment, vehicles and four 10 tonne gantry cranes, while dedicated offices, lunch rooms, showers and toilet amenities were installed for use by future workshop personnel.
This world-class workshop and office facility required an incredible 4,700m3 of concrete, 18,000m2 of slabs poured in-situ, 800 concrete trucks, 25 concrete pumps, six cranes and a massive 94 concrete tilt panels lifted into place by Shelford Constructions' talented team of construction specialists! Given construction took place on Federal Government land, within an airport runway precinct, strict protocols were implemented and enforced to ensure compliance with all federal planning and management requirements, including height restrictions and construction methods. Environmental consideration was also a requirement of the area, with vehicle and plant wash down and spray painting facilities designed to be compliant. The completed project required the installation of four 10 tonne overhead rail-mounted gantry cranes, and incorporated a 10m x 100m canter-levered canopy, an 8m x 15m vertical folding hangar door, a concrete hardstand specifically designed to withhold 32 tonne wheel loads, and a secure hazardous goods storage facility. The use of structural steel design elements, concrete "fin" panels and coloured spandrel glass, combine to provide an architecturally pleasing facade set within native-inspired landscaped gardens.
