Within five weeks Ausco Modular built and installed quality offices for the entire construction team, embracing all the regulations and protocols of a large-scale government project

 

Abigroup required offices for their construction team over a three to four year period during construction of the government’s $1.4 billion Queensland Children’s Hospital.

With limited notice Ausco Modular was able to build, deliver and install the offices on site within five weeks, ensuring all buildings met the Building Code of Australia (BCA) standard.

Features of the main building include a reception area, office space, meeting rooms and a lunchroom. A large open plan area was also included in the design to provide more space for employees, construction drawings and files.

As an important and large-scale Queensland Government project, Ausco Modular had to adhere to strict workplace health and safety regulations. 
     
The offices were installed in a built-up inner-city area; adjacent to private schools, the Mater Children’s Hospital, Mater Private Hospital and a number of businesses.

Ausco Modular worked closely with Abigroup, providing comprehensive and cohesive site management, developing a traffic management plan to limit disruptions to the neighbouring establishments and to ensure full access to the surrounding sites.

Ausco Modular adapted the modular buildings so they could be lifted by a crane and installed four metres above ground onto a raised steel platform, working over two weekends and in tough weather conditions to put the gantry in place and install the buildings.

 

Ausco Modular’s flexibility and focused customer service was integral in meeting the unique requirements of this project.
