Brief:Electrical works upgrade for breakfast bar, coffee and orange juice machines
Info:The installation of a new Cafina coffee machine and orange juice machine required an electrical upgrade to meet the new electrical requirements.
This involved the installation of new circuits, plugs and sockets (Marechal), three phase circuits and circuit breakers with built-in RCD (Residual Current Device). RCD helps to protect against electrocution while an MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker) provides localised overload protection.

d'Albora Marinas
Akuna Bay
October 2007
Client:d'Albora Marinas
Project Management:Vegagroup
Brief:Replace concrete topping to "Rack and Stack" boat storage facility
Info:d'Albora Marinas Akuna Bay services Pittwater and the Hawkesbury. The marina provides wet berths, dry (Rack and Stack) storage, swing moorings, slipping and boat services, fuel and retail tenancy.
The Rack and Stack facility at d'Albora Marinas Akuna Bay is NSW's only existing dry boat storage, accommodating for approximately 170 vessels up to 24 feet in length.
The dry boat storage presents a smart alternative to meet the high demand. It involves placing boats in racks inside large land based storage facilities. It is typically suitable for vessels in the 5 to 12 metre size range. In this manner, approximately 20 m2 of land can store 6 to 7 boats as opposed to 1 or 2 in the equivalent space in a marina and 1 on a swing mooring.
Once Vegagroup received the green light, there were only seven days to have this project completed and fully operational. Time was of the essence! Because the project's large concrete area had stringent and varied performance requirements, in terms of loading, impact and wear resistance, a number of material and methods were considered. The evaluation process considered concrete strength improvement, surface finish quality, cost saving and speed of construction. The area of concern was delineated for grinding and contour depth levels for the new topping slab specified.
The structural engineer report conveyed a suitable profile, which has ensured gradients not exceeding the safety limits with an overall deeper gradient towards the outer perimeter. The next stage was surface preparation by concrete scabbling, performed to match the required various depth profiles. Scabbling is used to prepare concrete surfaces before relaying new concrete, as surface grounding is a critical factor in the performance of the new concrete. The reinforcement steel and mesh for the floor slab were installed with careful laser aligning, taking in consideration the variable slab depths. Welded steel mesh fabric or steel rods are usually used in concrete to control cracking and to meet structural requirements.
Over a 3 day period, more than 40m3 of concrete was poured for a spectacular smooth finish.

Brief:Installation of industrial crash barriers along retaining wall in the car park area
Info:The provision of a reinforced barrier to stop vehicles going over the top of the retaining wall involved the overhauling of the existing hand railing and the relocation of the wheel stops to an appropriate position further away from the kerb. Given that there are 2 sections to the retaining wall, and the height varied from almost nothing to approx. 1.6m, a customised solution was required to deliver the required strength compliant with the appropriate Australian Standards, Codes & Regulations (Conditions as described for "light traffic areas" in AS/NZS 1170.1:2002 Clause 3.8 Note and AS/NZS 1170.1 Supp 1:2002 C3.8). Also some consideration was needed to the interplay of the narrow and gradually wider strip of landscaping between the kerb and the retaining wall. Ingal Civil Products supplied the custom manufactured FLEXBEAMT Guardrail and support accessories. The system is supported by standard posts 610mm high which are affixed onto a custom concrete pad behind the kerb for a sturdy support. Ingal Civil Products are certified in accordance with ISO AS/NZS 9001:2000 and registered with Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.

Brief:Inspection and repair of sheet metal roofing structure
Info:Stage one of the works involved a roof inspection assisted by a 15 metre Cherry Picker covering the two separate roofing structures, constructed out of galvanized sheet metal. Due to weathering conditions, numerous areas of loose and dislodged sheet metal roofing were found. These required re-enforcement in affected areas with new specialised galvanized roofing screws. Vega personnel, trained in Industrial Rope Access Rescue & Safety accessed the roof using a 15 metre Elevated Work Platform and carried out the necessary repairs by re-attaching the effected sheets with galvanised roofing screws.

Brief:Painting works on Entry / Exit areas and Crossover Tunnel leading into the car park's Centre Zone
Info:Darling Park houses an underground car park available to both Darling Park tenants and Cockle Bay Wharf patrons. Taking into account how busy the complex is, works had to be suitably co-ordinated and scheduled so as not to get in the way with the day-to-day business life of the office tenants. Even though the painting works was performed after hours, the car park traffic was managed by a qualified traffic controller, supervising all vehicular movement in and out of the car park during works.
Darling Park is considered as Australia's most unique developments. It consists of 3 office towers situated on a 3.5 hectare site located on the eastern shore of Cockle Bay in the Darling Harbour precinct. This first-class office accommodation is supported with extensive facilities such as 5 star hotel lobbies and galleries, bistros, cafes and coffee bars, various retail shops and terrace areas. But the gemstone of the centre is a spectacular 3000 square metre garden, with more than 1000 trees, plants and shrubs representing every continent in the world. The garden was designed to form the shape of a large Waratah when viewed from above.

Brief:Carpark entry spikes repair & installation
Info:The one way speed control system is extremely cost effective, and can eliminate the need for boom gates or security gates. It provides uninterrupted access from one direction while securely barring entry or exit from the other. Additionally, the control teeth work independently to guarantee maximum security. But while it provides a versatile and totally controllable traffic flow, the springs controlling the individual teeth can fail sometimes due to wear and tear and lose their upward latching thrust. Given that it's concreted below the road surface, the heavy duty face plate was removed from each module to obtain access to the in-ground unit for this kind of maintenance. Following diagnosis, some springs were found conked out and were replaced. The unit was reassembled to fully running order. Another spikes unit was installed at the Sussex street entry.

Brief:Electrical re-conditioning, maintenance and installation works
Info:This full inspection of the lighting system was conducted to further increase the general lighting, improving the overall car park mood and a greater feel of safety for occupants.
Work was conducted outside car park hours, as well as after midnight to keep car park operations unaffected.
Various upgrade, re-conditioning & replace works was carried out on light fittings, tube holders, ballasts, starters and light tubes. Some work required the use of special scaffolding as well as a cherry picker.
The upgrade maximised the utilisation of light output where and when it is needed while reducing light trespassing into other areas. By the use of the right amount of light for the task coupled with energy efficient light sources, multiple positive outcomes were achieved.
Currently owned by the Valad Property Group, the Gold Fields House building is approximately 880m north of Sydney's GPO and directly opposite Circular Quay Railway Station and Ferry terminals. This landmark address and building design enjoys uninterrupted panoramic views of Sydney Harbour.

Brief:Building works upgrade on Sanders Seafood Restaurant entry, kitchen preparation and store room areas
Info:The requirements for a restaurant's commercial kitchen are detailed to exact specs, especially if the restaurant is seaside, or in this case, above the water.
Refurbishment of the premises should comply with the requirements of the Food Act 2003, Australian Standard AS 4674-2004 and the Food Standards Code of local council. Moreover, the outcome of the works conformed to the requirements of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 in regard to noise, air or water pollution issues.
Given that the marine life in the proximity can be easily affected by the operation of a commercial kitchen, proper solutions to individual cases were proposed and implemented to achieve compliance with any Trade Waste requirements of the Sydney Water Corporation (for example cleaning material falling into the harbour atc.)
Refurbishment works were carried out across multiple areas; covering the kitchen, the area between Kitchen and food preparation zone and storage room. Moreover, a kitchen extension was constructed for additional working space.
Overhauling the place commenced, and the ceilings and walls were prepared in advance for the upcoming installation of new material and electrical works. Intended walls were specified as "solid construction", to be thoroughly sealed and the existing ceilings slats were replaced with fire rated gyprock.
The floors were a major component of the works across multiple areas. In the kitchen preparation area for example, the existing floor was dug out with a purpose to achieve proper falls for drainage, followed by the application of new sand and cement screed. Tiles and vinyl flooring were supplied and installed over the existing floor boards along with skirting right around the perimeter of each area. Coving tiles were installed, as they are especially a perfect finish to the perimeters (Essential in terms of compliance with safety regulations.) The cement floor in the food preparation area was resurfaced with a cleanable rubber cover, with proper falls to the grease trap.
The upshot of this major renovation achieved two objectives, a safe and compliant restaurant while
at the same time advancing the dining experience.
Sanders Seafood is a fine dining waterfront restaurant offering a fresh selection of seafood for the discerning taste buds. It is located on d'Albora Marinas Cabarita Point.
The restaurant literally sits above the water with various access points to and from the marina and ample parking area. You can even moor your boat at the Marina whilst you dine at Sanders. Perfect!
Beautifully designed with an astute sense of spaciousness in mind, the restaurant's eating area gently balances the ever-sparkling panoramic view adorning your visual senses. This exclusive location is perfect to superbly echo the various weather moods, or different times of the day and seasons of the year.
Sanders today is a revamped eating space where marina and Cabarita Park visitors can derive endless culinary pleasures from.

Info:The works involved refurbishment of the offices within the Charles Ulm Building located along link road. Works carried out included the removal of the existing workstations, the installation of new offices and relocation of fire sprinklers. Given the ULM building location is along Link Road, access for material unloading was constantly organised ahead of time with SACL's Security Operations Coordinators. And of course, our operations were carried out without affecting vehicular traffic, while ensuring public & staff safety at all times. The constructed offices included the provision of power, phones and data points; the walls needed to be acoustically insulated with glazing walls and films at the front covered with matching blinds; doors and locks were also supplied and installed to match existing. To allow for the electrical and Mechanical works, services isolation was co-ordinated with SACL's Electrical Contracts Coordinator as well as SACL's Hydraulic and Mechanical Contracts Coordinator prior to commencing work. Electrical works involved the installation of various GPO and data points and phone, and the relocation of light fittings and air diffusers across both levels. Additional fire sprinklers were installed allowing for the expanded areas. To allow for uninterrupted office operations, all work was carried out after office working hours (after 7pm) and premises were back to working condition on a daily basis until the project was completed. All electrical work, mechanical work and fire services were validated with the suitable compliance certificates.

Brief:Refurbishment of Ladies and Men's bathroom facilities
Info:On the outset, and before works commenced, we aimed to identify any potential problems especially that the bathrooms facilities are situated within marine environment conditions. We also identified and arranged for the various trades people to undertake the different aspects of the work, making sure all complies with the building code of Australia.
All risk assessments; safe work method statements and material safety data sheets were provided prior to works commencing.
Works included stripping out the old bathrooms, making any structural changes and supervising the entire project.
Managing the work every step of the way ensured the costs remained within the specified budget, with strong emphasis on quality workmanship and the materials used as fit for purpose. This aspect was undertaken by our project co-ordinator, who executed the plan to action, scheduling, co-ordinating, managing and overseeing the workflow.
Throughout the process, we were constantly verifying and ensuring that the workmanship and materials are within the parameters of the plans, specifications and applicable building codes.
Situated within the main office complex, the facilities already accommodated the marina staff and many clients visiting the marina on a daily basis. So to ensure customer service to marina clients isn't disrupted, works were programmed for bathrooms to be completed successively. This meant doubling up on certain trades.
As in any comprehensive refurbishment, many areas required consideration. So works commenced with the removal of the existing fixtures, along with the dismantling of the existing tiles, entire floorboards, all doors and doorjambs. CFC sheeting and water proofing membrane were put in place prior to the installation of new tiles. This is to ensure the tiles' durability in this environment. All new customised doorjambs were installed supporting the new doors.
Basins, toilets and hardware were replaced with ceramic water efficient products. Shower screens, towel rails and toilet roll holders. Finally, all walls and ceilings were repaired and painted for a smooth continuous finish. And to keep the new environment adequately ventilated and properly lit, sensor controlled mechanical ventilation and commercial low-voltage down lights were installed for open areas, shower and toilets.
The necessary licensed trades and labourers to undertake the job from start to finish were: Tiling, carpentry, electrical, gyprocking and painting.
