St Hilliers was appointed the Contractor for the design and construction of the ARFF Fire Station at Newman, WA.
Key to St Hilliers selection was our innovative approach to design to achieve the requirements of the Brief.
The new ARFF facilities are modular in nature, allowing them to be dismantles, transported and reassembled at other sites if required. The scope involves:
- Initial civil and ground works including footings and foundations, as well as the in-ground services and complete installation of the concrete slabs.
- The manufacture of the modular and flat pack building components in Brisbane, and then transport of these components to site.
- The erection and construction of these components on site, and then the fit-out and installation of minor services.
- External works including the pavements, wash down bays, fuel, foam hazardous storage tanks and landscaping.
Works were completed within an active Airport and had to comply with strict Aviation Industry Security requirements. All St Hilliers personnel carried ASIC clearances, and access within and between Landside and Airside areas was tightly controlled by security measures.
