PROJECT NOTES

The first of these three projects was built in Picton, in Bunbury WA. 4m high precast retaining walls supported a steel superstructure. Next came Geraldton where we refined our design to incorporate a more efficient building layout and precast panels supported by structural steel columns. Finally Rockingham was designed which became a combination of the best of the previous two structures. Our continual improvement approach was again on display and has contributed to successful projects for all stakeholders.
