The Pelican Point Terminal project is a new fuel storage & distribution facility that will be constructed on a site area of approximately 60,000m2. Situated near the entrance of the Port River the new Terminal is adjacent the ASC Ship Yards and Techport Facility. The project is on a large scale and is divided into two distinct areas being the inner and outer compounds.
The inner compound is a fully bunded area of some 30,000m2 which will include 8 fuel storage tanks. The fuel storage tanks will have the capacity to hold 84 million litres of fuel at any one time. Fuel is delivered to the inner compound tanks through a network of external pipe lines reticulated directly from the docked ships at the Outer Harbour berth.
The remainder of the site is the outer compound which is the main service area for the facility. This part of the works provides several structures including the main Gantry building, Pipe Support Bridge, Wharf-line Pump Manifold Building and Control Room. The outer compound also includes large areas of heavy duty concrete pavements, access haulage roads, waster water filtration plant and associated site works.
Construction of a 1200m2 waste water treatment facility for the storage, separation and re-use of acid based waste product from the car painting process.
The facility houses 20 stainless steel waste storage silos and an intricate hydraulic separation system. The entire facility including all internal surfaces, structures and services have been fabricated and treated to resist acid attack in a completely submersed environment. The structure provided a 500m2 ‘Deltacore” mezzanine floor, 18m above ground level for the housing of major plant and equipment.
Allsons Transport project was a major site development of some 35,000m2. The main building was a large scale 10,400m2 warehouse with associated cool rooms, freezers and a cold chain truck loading dock. The AQIS registered facility provides a fully enclosed wash down bay conforming to quarantine requirements for the treatment of international shipping containers. The office components provided 3 areas of high grade commercial space including a two storey and single storey office with an internal warehouse despatch facility. Another major feature was an internal 500m2 fire separated compartment for the storage of dangerous goods. The rear hardstand provided over 14000m2 of shipping container storage and loading yard designed to accommodate 90 tonne loads.
Construction of a new two storey office building, 18,000m2 warehouse and refurbishment of existing buildings for Austral Steel Eagle & Globe currently occupied by Smorgan Steel. The 1800m2 office building was cutting edge engineering and architecture for the time. Utilising precast concrete panels and reinforced floor slabs the mass concrete structure was impressive. In order to make a feature of the building a joint Government and client funded steel sculpture formed a centre piece to the main entry. The artist depicted South Australian icons such as the River Torrens and Pop-eye. The 18,000m2 warehouse incorporated hi-tech machinery with 15 overhead magnet cranes and a document vacuum retrieval system. On average the warehouse stores 20,000 tonne of steel at any one time.
