Connecting twenty-one pre-constructed modules to an existing flight line shelter with no disruption to air services at an operational air base was a highly technical challenge for Fredon WA. The electrical scope included the installation of lighting, power, lighting control, communications and BMS to the large military aircraft shelters. Fredon replicated its systems across all twenty-one modules to meet the very tight construction schedule.
Fredon had to meet exacting Defence standards on this highly technical project, connecting each of the twenty-one pre-constructed modules to an existing live shelter with no disruption to air services.
Martin Loevendie, Managing Director of Fredon said, “This was a highly technical project, particularly as the installation needed to connect with a live shelter. The shelter was manufactured in modular sections away from the airfield site, which was an operational military base. All the installations, including the switchboards, were done on the ground and lifted into place when ready. There was no storage on the site, so deliveries had to be made in stages such that the products arrived and were installed immediately.”
Adding further, “The extremely tight timeframes and high level of quality expected for a project of this nature required us to work very closely with the client’s design team to deliver the project to standard. The end result proved to us and our client, that a quality product can be achieved with consistent communication and staff involvement.”
Martin and his team will compete for the Best Industrial Small Project at the NECA National Awards in Brisbane in November.
