Techport Australia Common User Facility, Australia
Aurecon - designing and building environmentally friendly infrastucture for defence force
The Common User Facility is a national strategic asset that is playing a key role in the building of the new Air Warfare Destroyers for the Royal Australian Navy. Aurecon was the design consultant for this technically challenging and complex defence multidisciplinary project, which was delivered on time and constructed to the approved budget.
Work was performed on land, over water and under water, with much of it carried out on the edge of the Port River, requiring substantial preconstruction works. The Port River is a dolphin sanctuary and stringent environmental controls were enforced to ensure minimal impact on the river’s ecology.
