Scope of works: Design, Engineering, Steel Fabrication & On-Site Services.
Our client came to us with a requirement for a complete new screen building design and engineering. Operational forces and conditions needs to be considered as well as wind and static loads, providing our clients with the different load cases to ensure suitability for the extreme conditions of operations within a cyclone region. UWF successfully delivered this project from design until project completion within 10 weeks.
Scope of works: Drafting, Steel Fabrication, Delivery and Steel Erection, Cladding, Services & Electrical Works, Louvre & Ventilation Systems.
Mine Operations required the relocation of 12 off Industrial Compressors into an external building which can house them effectively. Design has to incorporate the maintenance of these as well as the harsh conditions whilst the compressors are in operation. Hence the design which allows efficient air flow and cross ventilation, this posed challenges in the build as we had to install all louvre systems and ventilators in the roof and have the structural designed around the hinged doors to allow for easy maintenance of the equipment. UWF was also contracted to carry out the electrical works inside the building.

UWF is involved with the Regis Woodlands Project which will be a new contemporary 120-place facility with construction starting 2016. The facility will be set in the leafy suburb of Woodlands offering a dementia specific area and a Regis Club services area with a Wi-Fi, Foxtel, café, day spa, library, cinema and hair salon. Regis Woodlands will open mid-2018.
UWF worked closely with the builders, design engineers and architects involved in this project to ensure a smooth project delivery. Due to the varying trades involved in this project, our team has to work closely with the concrete workers, brick layers as well as window glazers to ensure that overall construction program went smoothly.
Design, Engineering, Steel Fabrication & Erection
Before UWF was engaged on this project, there was no permanent platform to access the pumps for maintenance purposes, and temporary scaffolding was utilised to allow access. There has been some challenges on this project due to the limited space which we had to work with as well as slab space with existing services running under. This site was also right above the water and considerations had to be made for exposure to saltwater and cyclonic region conditions. Due to limited access, UWF also had to come up with a different installation methodology which is economical and does not impede on daily operations of the site.
