ADCO delivered Plasser Rail’s new manufacturing facility at their St Marys production and maintenance headquarters. The scope included a large span railyard fabrication and maintenance facility, large cantilevered awning area and associated works, including alterations to existing secondary entry driveway and landscaping within the existing site.
The project also included rail siding access to the New South Wales standard gauge rail system providing access for newly commissioned maintenance and track laying machinery.
Key to the project’s success was the integration and coordination of Rhomberg Rail Australia’s contract into the works. This scope incorporated the removal of existing rail sidings and turnouts for civil works to commence and then the construction of four turnouts and 700m of rail shunting room on track slab. Due to the complexity of the staging program, each portion of track had to complete by a specific date.
These works were separated into four modules of works to allow all contractors to work simultaneously without delays. The coordination of monthly and daily works was difficult at times and communication by all contractors throughout the course of the project was crucial. Two stages of the program were driven by Plasser’s need to deliver track machines to its customers. The project was a resounding success for all involved, completed on time, on budget and to all key stakeholder requirements.
