The Maker’s specialised stone cutting plant and equipment and a grey water recycling system were just two of the elements that made this project a unique challenge for the PACT Construction team.
The project involved the construction of an 1800m2 factory / warehouse facility consisting of a heavy duty slab-on-ground, structural steel portal frame, tilt concrete panels and steel framed, metal corrugated wall spandrels. In addition to the new building, the overall development included an extensive car park modification, an oversite landscape upgrade, substantial façade modifications and upgrades to the existing building and a new staff alfresco area.
Inside the new facility, The Maker’s specialised stone cutting plant and equipment, combined with overhead lifting facilities and a gantry crane were all commissioned in September 2008.
Supplying, installing and commissioning the concrete cutting equipment utilised by The Maker further tested PACT’s contractor liaison and problem solving skills. “ We undertook a high level of briefing between the supplier of the equipment and the design team and ourselves to determine that the pad footing location, slab construction and horizontal tolerances in the area were all able to accommodate the installation of the equipment when it arrived from Germany,” explained Mr Kunkler.
