MAROOCHYDORE, QLD

Maroochydore Homemaker Centre

ADCO was proud to deliver Harvey Norman’s biggest large format retail project in Australia.

The $70 million design and construct project, located on the Queensland Sunshine Coast, includes one of the largest Harvey Norman stores in Australia, a Domayne, over 16,000sqm of specialty large format retail tenancies and 5,000sqm of support offices, all suspended over undercroft car parking for 901 vehicles. The centre covers approximately 72,000sqm of built form and is one of the largest enclosed homemaker centres in Australia.

ADCO’s design and delivery teams incorporated several innovations on the large-scale project. Our in-house design managers provided an alternate in-ground solution whereby the entire building structure was lifted 1.5 metres. As the site was situated in challenging, swamp-like ground conditions, the amount of material needing to be exported was greatly reduced.

The design team also redesigned the roof structure to reduce the overall head height of the building. In conjunction with the lifting of the building, the roof redesign effectively squashed the building avoiding potential delays in lodging amendments to the existing approved development application. This also provided the client a significant cost saving, helping the financial feasibility and approval of the development.

T1 Bifurcation Roof & Luxury Retail Precinct

ADCO led the redevelopment of the Bifurcation Precinct — part of the broader duty-free development at the Sydney International Airport.

The T1 Bifurcation Project is an entirely unique project due to the complexity of geometry, scale and access, made even more challenging by the constraints of working in a live, operating airport facility.

Works involved the construction of a new 2,900m² diagrid roof structure that was supported by only four columns and suspended 28 metres above tarmac level. This new structure included 63-metre clear span trusses and a ten-metre high glass façade spanning 45 metres.

Once structural works were complete, the existing roof and structure was removed to create a new open plan retail precinct inclusive of skylights and a high-level ceiling and provide over 3,700m² of new space within the fully operational departures terminal.

PORT HEDLAND, WA

Port Hedland International Airport Redevelopment

The Port Hedland International Airport upgrade project encompasses both essential services and infrastructure upgrades and relocation, as well as the refurbishment and expansion of the existing terminal building.

During the ECI phase of the project, ADCO tested the proposed construction methodology and logistics against the airport management plans and aviation requirements, providing advice in relation to buildability, cyclonic region D considerations and assisting with investigation of the existing built elements and services.

The site infrastructure upgrade is centred in the new services compound and plant shed on the north-eastern side of the site which will house the fire pumps and tanks, potable water tanks and sewer leach drain facility. These upgraded systems replace the existing site services that will give way to the new carpark configuration, where the new car hire facilities and coach parking will be repurposed.

The terminal works comprise of a new extension which will facilitate the relocation of the current check-in and security screening areas, further assisting the expansion of existing baggage handling facilities. Rammed earth walls will showcase the new passenger terminal entrance and guide visitors to an upgraded check-in area. New tiled floors will promote integration of the new extension to the existing building which will be further enhanced with vaulted ceiling treatments.

Great attention has been given to the café/restaurant tenancy and the terminal amenities that will see brand new restroom facilities introduced to the landside area, while the existing airside amenities will also be upgraded.

Working in a live environment with stringent operational and safety requirements is a challenge ADCO will embrace. We will ensure CASA, aviation guidelines and HSE best practices are implemented by mirroring the PHIA management plans and prioritising airport passenger movements over all construction stages at all times.

Construction started in February 2020 following the completion of the ECI process.

BRISBANE AIRPORT, QLD

Virgin Australia Maintenance Facility

ADCO was engaged by Virgin Australia to construct the airline’s first hangar at Brisbane Domestic Airport.

The hangar was designed to service Virgin’s Brisbane based aircraft fleet. With a height of 24 metres and a clear span of 100 metres, the hangar is large enough to accommodate two Boeing 737-700 aircraft side-by-side or one of the larger airbus A340s. 5,000m² of office and storage space is located at the rear of the facility accommodating 240 office and maintenance staff.

The airside pavement works required adherence to aviation security protocols including workforce management, tool control registers, and security chaperones for site visitors.

The $20 million project, completed over 12 months, presented many challenges, particularly in relation to the site. As a large percentage of Brisbane Airport is founded on reclaimed land from Moreton Bay, the marine clay soils and high water table required the use of precast piles which were driven 30 metres below ground level. A 50-tonne macro roller was used to compact the sub-grade and a temporary bridging layer was utilised to ensure crane traffic did not disturb the sub-grade prior to the pouring of the concrete slabs.

The hangar was designed to service Virgin’s Brisbane based aircraft fleet. With a height of 24 metres and a clear span of 100 metres, the hangar is large enough to accommodate two Boeing 737-700 aircraft side-by-side or one of the larger airbus A340s. 5,000m² of office and storage space is located at the rear of the facility accommodating 240 office and maintenance staff.

The airside pavement works required adherence to aviation security protocols including workforce management, tool control registers, and security chaperones for site visitors.

The $20 million project, completed over 12 months, presented many challenges, particularly in relation to the site. As a large percentage of Brisbane Airport is founded on reclaimed land from Moreton Bay, the marine clay soils and high water table required the use of precast piles which were driven 30 metres below ground level. A 50-tonne macro roller was used to compact the sub-grade and a temporary bridging layer was utilised to ensure crane traffic did not disturb the sub-grade prior to the pouring of the concrete slabs.
