On behalf of Brisbane Airport Corporation and Aviation Australia, ADCO delivered a 5,000m² facility providing a helicopter flight simulator hall and technical training centre, including 20 new lecture rooms and a café.
Designed to house Australia’s first AugustaWestland 139 Helicopter Full Flight Simulator, the facility demanded stringent acoustic, vibration, temperature and humidity performance criteria. ADCO’s focus on these requirements through all stages of design, construction and commissioning ensured these standards were achieved.
The design included full height precast concrete walls to the simulator hall to exclude noise from the flight path above, with an insulated panel fixed internally to address reverberated noise. High performance acoustic doors were used with meticulous attention to seal details, and an isolated motion reinforced concrete slab was installed beneath the simulator.
