Project Management & Superintendent Services

The Melbourne Gateway Facility is a purpose built facility for the screening of domestic and international mail. The facility is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is occupied by Australia Post, Australian Customs Services (ACS) and Australian Quarantine and Inspection Services (AQIS).

The design was required to comply with the Melbourne Airport planning requirements. These requirements differed to that of Australia Post and as such design initiatives were introduced to ensure operational expenses were reduced.

The project was required to be delivered in strict compliance with the National Code of Practice for the Construction Industry. This involved extensive liaison and agreement with all major industrial relations stakeholders in Victoria. The principles adopted to ensure compliance were able to be transferred to other projects.

The project was delivered almost 10% under budget.
