Chisholm Road Prison is a new maximum-security prison being built in the vicinity of the Lara prison precinct, which will accommodate 1,248 prisoners when finished. With a focus on community safety, the state-of-the-art facility will feature the highest and most stringent level of security.
Stilcon Group was engaged to deliver access to all prison cells across the project. There were four John Holland teams working across several buildings within the project. Team 1 worked across 16 MA buildings; Team 2 worked across 12 MA buildings; Team 3 worked across 10 MA buildings and Team 4 worked across 16 MA buildings. Stilcon Scaffolding and Stilcon Steel needed to be agile to work together with each of these four teams with differing timelines and needs, ensuring they understood the capacities and efficiencies available to them.
Stilcon Scaffolding designed and engineered egress and aggress solutions across the project. They also developed scaffolding solutions to support Stilcon Steel requirements for the steel section of the project. Stilcon Scaffolding was able to combined scaffolds to work for other trades which was cost effective for the client created a time saving for the John Holland team.
During the pre-planning stage of the project, Stilcon Scaffolding and Stilcon Steel decided to set up two fully functioning satellite offices on site. It was determined that this was the best solution to fulfil the requirements of efficiencies and communications for such a large spread project in a regional location. For the Stilcon Scaffolding team, it was integral to the ongoing daily logistical requirements that instant capacity was available onsite to make changes on the fly. Even though this was not a requirement of the project, it ensured the best option for us to meet our client’s needs.
Stilcon Group had the logistical capabilities to supply between 50 & 60 team members across scaffolding, rigging, steel fabrication, plant hire and transport duties to this project. In addition, also had the fully operational office team on site which incorporated design and engineering, project co-ordinators, construction manager and support staff of up to twelve team members. A full suite of plant & equipment such as scissor lifts, cranes, boom lifts, generators etc was onsite along with the transport logistics required.
