Case Studies

Location: Perth, Australia

Year: 2016

Client:  Perth Airport Pty Ltd

Builder:  Built Environs

Scope:  $330m


About the project

As part of its $1 billion redevelopment project, Perth Airport hired prime contractor Built Environs to build a new departure terminal. The project also included extending the existing international departure and arrive terminals too. When it was completed, this $330 million portion of the redevelopment project would include adding a series of check-in desks, aerobridges and aircraft gates large enough to host Airbus A380 jetliners. There would also be luggage management systems and a new Virgin Australia lounge. Of course, Built Environs needed steel for structure, the façades and the interiors.

Lighthouse Engineering’s solution

We were contracted to 3D model, supply and install the secondary steelworks including facade support steel structures, 3D modules, Trusses, and glazing support frames.

Our design and drafting team coordinated the design with the builder’s design team and relevant trades. After producing shop drawings to IFC status, we manufactured and delivered the steel to the construction site, and installed it to the client’s requirements.

The main highlight of the project is the close collaboration with the project stakeholders in BIM environment to ensure all steelworks are supplied and precisely installed as intended.
