Aurecon was engaged as Project Manager to deliver new facilities and infrastructure to accommodate the relocation of multi-role tanker transport facilities at the Royal Australian Air Force’s Amberley base. Construction of new Defence facilities, including a maintenance complex, aircraft parking apron and fuel hydrant system, as well as upgrades to the main runway, and portions of the parallel runway had to be undertaken without interfering with flight operations.
Focusing on quality and understanding the client’s and end user’s needs, Aurecon provided a project team and approach that promoted relationships and team building to achieve desired outcomes. Aurecon developed a design brief that was definitive enough to provide a cost plan with an acceptable level of certainty but still allowed flexibility in meeting the requirement. We also developed procedures for assisting the contractor with the programming and management of handover and commissioning activities for the various facilities including aircraft pavements, service infrastructure and structures.
