Providing infrastructure to support the Air Warfare Destroyer project 

Built Environs was contracted to build two six-storey steel structures to support shipbuilder ASC in constructing three Air Warfare Destroyers for the Royal Australian Navy.

This project included the fit out of a dedicated ship blasting and painting facility, as well as the integration of blast and paint equipment, and the installation of supporting structure and services such as a 12m x 55m steel awning, dust and dry paint protection, emission control seals, acoustic installation and tool stores, workshops and offices.

The project team needed to meet strict EPA pollution control regulations, protect existing transfer system rail tracks and pavements, address traffic, security, logistics and safety, and maintain a high level of environmental controls due to proximity to the Port River. The project was completed ahead of the contracted deadline of August 2011, following Built Environs' 2009 completion of the adjacent Techport Australia Common User Facility with then-joint venture partner, McConnell Dowell.
