Apex Park Community Hub

Client: City of West Torrens
Construction Period: 28 Weeks
Value: $3,500,000

Project Scope: Upgrade of the existing Apex Park community and wetland amenity to facilitate the relocation of the Lockleys Riding Club from its existing location to this site. The project included providing the area with multi-use community facilities and the redevelopment of sporting and recreational areas to enable public participation activities. The civil and landscaping component of the works included the construction of a new horse-riding arena, wetland shaping, new sealed structured pathways, public lighting, formal landscaped zones, public amenities (park furniture), carpark extension and retaining walls.

Innovations: Various innovations were developed throughout the project. Most notably the change of sheet piling from steel to vinyl to provide a longer design life and corrosion due to the proximity of the site to the sea.

 

 

Lobethal Primary School - Toilet and DDA Upgrade

Client: Spotless
Construction Period: 50 Weeks
Value: $810,000

Project Scope: Spotless engaged Camo to construct a DDA Upgrade at the Lobethal Primary School. The works included an upgrade to the student toilets, a building extension to provide new staff toilets and a sick room, new concrete ramps and steps with handrails.

Innovations: Access to the site is extremely tight, the works needed to be staged in 4 sections to allow the students to access their classrooms unimpeded. A temporary toilet block was provided while the construction of the new toilets took place. The use of a small motorised dumper and extended length concrete line pumps were used to access some of the construction locations.

 

Thebarton Police Barracks - Building 3 COVID POC Works

Client: Spotless
Construction Period: 8 Weeks
Value: $730,000

Project Scope: In response to the COVID pandemic, South Australia Police’s new COVID-19 nerve centre was constructed by Camco at Thebarton Police Barracks. The Police Operations Centre (POC) is a standalone facility in a move that bolsters South Australia’s capability to react to multiple emergencies at once.In response to the COVID pandemic, South Australia Police’s new COVID-19 nerve centre was constructed by Camco at Thebarton Police Barracks. The Police Operations Centre (POC) is a standalone facility in a move that bolsters South Australia’s capability to react to multiple emergencies at once.

The scope included an internal refurbishment of a portion of the Thebarton Police Barracks to be suitable for use as a COVID Operations Centre. The refurbishment included demolition of the existing fitout, installation of new partitions, doors and windows, new ceiling, new joinery including a kitchen fit out and new floor finishes. A significant upgrade of the building services was also undertaken including electrical, mechanical and security.

Innovations: The project had significant time constraints to ensure a handover of the facility as soon as practically possible. The project was constructed in separable portions to handover for ICT fit out, which was identified as critical path to the completion of the project. Deadlines and targets were met through extended working hours and days. The project had significant time constraints to ensure a handover of the facility as soon as practically possible.

Commercial Road, Port Adelaide Remediation Works

Client: Renewal SA
Construction Period: 6 Weeks
Value: $280,000

Project Scope: Stabilisation and remediation of a boundary masonry wall on the existing heritage listed “Central Buildings”. The project scope includes the installation of a temporary structural steel propping system, soil injection stabilisation, remedial works to the existing footing, masonry repairs, external rendering and painting.

Innovations: We reviewed the proposed propping system and evaluated an alternative that would allow the main structure to be built on the ground and then lifted into position as one unit. This allowed the crane time to be reduced & the three propping towers were installed in less than a day. Similarly for removal, the towers were lowered to the ground as one unit before dismantling.
Problem Solving: The instability of the existing the wall was the main risk and cause for concern throughout the project. Working closely with the Client and Engineering team, we successfully installed a propping system that allowed the stability works to be undertaken without any further damage to the Heritage listed building. The walls were found to be unstable, and not capable to support a structural load. Therefore new single leaf masonry walls were constructed on the inside of the building. These were later rendered and painted to match the original aesthetics of the building.
