Bunbury Farmers Market | $6.7m | 2013

Client: Erinnom Pty Ltd

Contract:  AS4000-1997

Scope

This project involved the partial demolition of the existing building with a portion of the structure remaining and construction of a new 3600m2 building. The facilities in the new building consisted of large retail area, bakery, flower room, cool rooms, fridges and freezers, food preparation areas, mezzanine offices, coffee shop, staff and public amenities, kitchen, covered deliveries area and mechanical services plant compound.

Construction

The building structure consists of mainly structural steel frame throughout with concrete tilt panel walls on the boundary, with timber stud framed infill clad with Hardies Scyon weatherboard and lined timber stud walls internally. 

Challenges 

There were many challenges that were overcome on this project including; extremely tight 7 month construction program which was met even with considerable and significant variations throughout construction, working with and coordinating various specialist trades and nominated subcontractors to meet the programme. Also, the site was located on a busy intersection which restricted access and required continual coordination of trades and material deliveries to overcome.

Client:   Private Client

Contract:  Lump Sum AS2124 - 1992

Scope

As head contractor, Civilcon was responsible for the complete construction of the 3 storey office and retail building. Fit-out work, although not in the contract, was carried out before completion and was co-ordinated with Civilcon to reduce the overall timeframe for occupancy.

Construction

The 2700sqm building is constructed with a concrete frame and pre-cast concrete tilt panel walls. The 3rd level is framed with structural steel and clad with Comtex and Exotec sheeting. The building also has an internal water storage tank and pumps for fire fighting requirements. The three levels are serviced by two stair wells and an elevator. Civilcon completed all of the concrete, tilt-panels and carpentry trades ‘in-house’. 

Challenges 

Several challenges during construction were overcome, including the following:

  • The building occupies all four boundaries of the inner city block which is positioned on a busy intersection.
  • Safe pedestrian access was maintained around the site at all times during construction.
  • The 52 pre-cast concrete tilt panels, some up to 13m high, were all cast on site.
  • The suspended slabs, up to 250m3, were completed in one pour.
