Aldi Woodcroft, 21st Century Developments

Construction of external loading dock and roof mounted plant platform for the new ALDI Supermarket at Woodcroft Shopping Centre. The loading dock was built with a combination of in-situ and pre-cast concrete and comprises an automated dock leveller, panel lift door and structural steel canopy. The plant platform required penetrations through the existing roof, installation of an access ladder with walkway system and steel decking.

 

Estimated Value: $600,000 & Construction Period: 10 weeks

 

 


 

Broadmeadows Railway Station Upgrade, Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure

As part of the South Australian Government’s rail rejuvenation project, PTS upgrade several railway platforms each year. This year’s sites include Parafield and Broadmeadows. The project scope for each site is very similar and is designed to bring the sites up to current safety standards. Each platform is to be extended and raised to suit the new passenger trains and commuter facility upgrades, including lighting, shelter, seating and electronic notification, are to be constructed.  

 

Variations: An existing underpass was discovered during construction requiring additional demolition and modification to footings and stormwater.

 

Value added options: Staging of the works was coordinated to allow the project to be constructed in a live rail corridor, keeping one end of the platform open to the public while the other end was constructed.

 

Problem Solving: The use of directional boring for electrical, communications and water was adopted to avoid the need to disrupt rail services.

 

Estimated Value: $2,400,000 & Construction Period: 12 weeks

 


 

Parafield Railway Station Upgrade,

Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure
As part of the South Australian Government’s rail rejuvenation project, PTS upgrade several platforms each year. This year’s sites include Parafield and Broadmeadows. The project scope for each site is very similar and is designed to bring the sites up to current safety standards. Each platform is to be extended and raised to suit the new passenger trains and commuter facility upgrades, including lighting, shelter, seating and electronic notification, are to be constructed.

 

Variations: The project required additional scope, upgrading the electrical plant room and the modification of the concrete slab to cantilever over existing lightpole footings, enabling the existing crib wall to remain.           

 

Value added options: The project was carried out predominately out of hours.

 

Problem Solving: Construction was carried out in a live rail corridor; this was achieved by the use of “Vortok” barriers which separates people from train lines with a visual barrier and any work with the potential to foul the line carried out after last train and before the first train service.

 

Estimated Value: $1,750,000 & Construction Period: 12 weeks

 


 

Water Storage Tank Access Upgrades, SA Water Corporation

Design and construction of new service platforms and access ladders to five of SA Water’s existing filtered water storage tanks across metropolitan Adelaide. The scope included initial engineering of the site, inspections and determination of compliance with current standards. Redesign and strengthening of existing structural steel members to ensure adequacy of installation. Installation of service platforms and access ladders.

 

Variations: Significant additional works to upgrade the existing structural members to accept the new installations.

 

Problem Solving: The construction phase of this project extended into the summer months which made working inside the tanks hazardous due to the increased humidity. This was overcome by scheduling works to be completed during the morning when the outside temperatures were cooler, or postponing works when successive days of extreme heat were encountered.

 


 

Marion Railway Station Platform Upgrade, Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure

Marion Railway Station required a shelter structure to be constructed, though an alternative footing system was required due to different platform conditions.  We were also engaged to upgrade the existing platform itself.  Working closely with other contractors onsite, we overcame difficult access conditions (the platform was a centre island type) to reconstruct the pavement and apply a new bitumen surface.  In the process of that platform resurfacing we also upgraded the lighting and signal systems. 

 

Problem Solving: This project faced the same challenges – extremely tight construction periods to ensure the line could be re-opened on schedule, high quality construction standard to ensure public safety and product durability needs were met and design changes during the construction period to adapt the concept design to match actual site conditions.  Again, through the hard work and excellent communication between the entire project team we were able to meet these challenges head on and succeed.

 

Estimated Value: $575,000 & Construction Period: 8 weeks

 


 

Dry Creek Rail Simulator Room Construction, Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure - Public Transport Services

As part of the South Australian Government’s rail revitalisation program Camco was engaged to build a new simulator room/facility at the DPTI Dry Creek Depot. The area is designed to house a state of the art full cab simulator equipping rail staff with the knowledge to understand the unique training needs that PTS staff require when operating the new electrified A-City Class 4000 passenger trains that will run between Adelaide and Seaford early next year.

The facility was constructed within an existing shed at the Dry Creek Depot, the build included architectural components, structural modifications, civil components and an extensive mechanical, electrical and communication fit out.

Variations: Additional scope of works requested by the client including additional bitumen hardstand, modification to existing racking and storage of train parts for the bombardier department.

 

Value added options: The ability of Camco to work outside normal hours enabled the project to be delivered on time which was critical to the training needs of drivers for the operating the new electrified A-City Class 4000 passenger trains.

 

Problem Solving: The main challenge was to complete the simulator room with the large simulator needing to be delivered before the walls were constructed, the simulator was delivered and placed on pallet jacks and moved to allow for wall construction, painting and floor coverings.

 

Estimated Value: $350,000 & Construction Period: 6 weeks

 




 

Lonsdale Railway Station Access Stairs Upgrade, Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure - Public Transport Services

Demolition of the existing concrete access stairs at the Lonsdale Railway Station. The project scope included demolition of the existing concrete stairs, construction of new in-situ concrete footings and stairs, installation of stair nosings, roofing and cladding, installation of overpass screens, electrical and lighting upgrades and bonding for the rail electrification.

 

Problem Solving: The project was carried out in the final stages of the South Australian Government’s rail revitalisation program, testing of the new electrified A-City Class 4000 passenger trains was being carried out at the time, therefore the need to work in a live rail corridor was required. This was achieved with the use of elevated work platforms and equipment with a clear delineation of the exclusion zone/work zone.

 

Value Added Options: The ability of Camco to work outside normal hours enabled the project to be delivered on time.

 

Variations: Some additional stormwater, kerbing and concrete ramps were required by client.

 

Estimated Value: $450,000 & Construction Period: 8 weeks

 


 

Glenelg Waste Water Treatment Plant Retaining Wall Rehabilitation, All Water

Construction of a new core-filled block retaining wall at the Glenelg Waste Water Treatment Plant. The project scope included demolition of an existing wall, site preparation, construction of a new retaining wall, backfilling and reinstatement

 

Variations: Additional scope of works added by client including additional demolition, stormwater and fencing.

 

Value added options: Modification of existing stormwater.

 

Problem Solving: Safe removal and disposal of asbestos pipe and relocation of existing services.

 

Estimated Value: $175,000 & Construction Period: 6 weeks
