Bentley Chemplax Redevelopment

When the Port of Melbourne embarked on a major expansion, Fulton Hogan won a contract to build a new container stacking facility.

This was a technically complex project where Fulton Hogan was able to be innovative in areas such as recommending the use of more suitable lighting and cabling. It also undertook more geotechnical testing so that waste materials, such as asphalt and concrete, could be re-used, resulting in significant savings for the client.

The works involved:

  • Extension and curtailment of straddle container stacking areas
  • Demolition and removal of existing infrastructure
  • Construction of heavy duty pavements
  • Installation of storm water and subsurface drainage, fire mains services and electrical services

This project was delivered on schedule despite a tight timeframe that required many activities take place at the same time, so staging was critical. The client was also pleased with the high quality of the work that was completed under budget while also ensuring the safety of the workforce remained paramount throughout.
