Ballarat Aero Club workshop
Ballarat Aero Club is a longstanding recreational aviation group that was founded in 1928.
The club was in need of a new multi-functional aviation workshop that included a control tower, an office administration block and an amenities section.
Our scope and build details
- Structural steel drawings, engineering certification and computations.
- Fabricated hot dipped galvanised steel package.
- Structural concrete engineering including raft slab design for office.
- 3D structural/shop steel drawings.
- Purlins and girts.
- Roof and wall cladding.
- Roof insulation.
Challenges and solutions
We worked with the Aero Club, paying extra attention to the details of the control tower to make sure all vital planning requirements were adhered to and that the building was functional and highly accessible. Planning for the future, we included provision for hangar sliding doors to be installed at a later date.
All steelwork in the office building was designed around its future fit out, including the provision for a suspended ceiling.
