Hitachi Remanufacturing Facility
Forrestdale, WA Hitachi Remanufacturing Facility
ADCO proudly delivered Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia’s re-manufacturing facility in Perth.
Undertaken at Hitachi’s existing Forrestdale facility, the $13 million works involved the establishment of a steel structure building with a concrete tilt panel façade and external post-tension slabs. The warehouse, which is used for the refurbishment of large-scale Hitachi mining equipment, was extensively fitted out with gantry cranes, hydraulic and oil reticulated lines, spray booths and wheel testing facilities. All essential services were integrated with the existing facility, with all rainwater and stormwater to be captured and reused as part of the overall facility operations.
The $27 million, Stage 3 works provided a 5,300m2 warehouse and 200m2 office area for Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia, and is equipped with multiple gantry cranes, the largest two being 200 tonnes each, for assembly activities.
The new building was constructed with a combined solution of pre-fabricated concrete panels and a structural steel frame. The operational areas of the workshop received a hardwearing fibre concrete slab to support the heavy machinery loads and heavy-duty functional requirements. It is estimated that the workshop structural frame weighs approximately 750 tonnes in structural steel alone.
