Sydney Airport
Terminal 1 Carpark / Rockdale Entry Area
August 2007
Client:Sydney Airport Corporation Ltd
Project Management:Vegagroup
Brief:Island removal, fencing and line marking to improve traffic flows and increase carpark spaces
Info:When work is planned for exterior areas, weather has to be factored in especially with the changing trend towards wetter days in Sydney.
On its initial programmed date, this project was at the mercy of stormy weather, so rescheduling was the sensible thing to do. To facilitate the process, Vega provided a Public Protection Statement during construction work and a Traffic Management Plan.
In the early morning hours, barricades were erected fencing off the works zones and traffic signs were mounted for traffic management and direction.
The bulk of the works involved the removal of approximately 65sqm of raised islands.
Given that the international car park was previously landscaped complete with in-ground irrigation system, care was exercised during all excavation works ensuring existing services were not damaged. Also appropriate measures and procedures were in place to protect the stormwater system and surroundings from pollutants including soil, dust and wash from pavement cutting.
This was followed by reinstating the new surface with bitumen and the creation of a heavy duty kerb inlet pit with a trafficable flat pit lid to suit vehicular traffic loadings. Some existing signs were relocated or replaced, along with the installation of a 25 linear metre of pool fencing opposite the Rockdale Entry Gate. 25 wheel stops were installed and painted, and proximity line marking was undertaken which included the exit gate area, consistent with the existing carpark.

Client:d'Albora Marinas
Project Management:Vegagroup
Brief:Repair of damaged wharf ramp
Info:This urgent project required a fast and effective response time, especially tuned for working in a marina environment.
The damaged wharf ramp was dislodged from the base concrete slab due to many factors, amongst them weathering, aging and continuous load.
A choice to use aluminium alloy mounting plates as a replacement was decided for longevity in this environment, although aluminium requires special welding tools and technique.
The concrete slab was repaired using high strength concrete, with the mounting plates re-instated using galvanised mounting anchor bolts. Additional reinforcement work was performed on the wharf edging for the fork lift path limiter, with the fabrication of steel plates engineered by Edwards Engineering.
Further inspection was carried out by our qualified TRAC technicians (Technical Rope Access Concept), accessing the underside of the boat storage roof for inspection and repair of various sprinkle valves.
The revolutionary Technical Rope Access Concept (TRAC) is a WorkCover Authority approved technique used to obtain access to high and inaccessible locations for the purpose of maintenance and rescue. Normally these locations would be impractical or unsafe to access.

Private residence
North Bondi
July 2007
Client:Private
Architects:Beraldo Design
Project Management:Beraldo Design
Engineers:Michael Ell Consulting Engineers Pty Ltd
Builders:Vegagroup / Kenowell Pty. Limited
Brief:Exterior and interior building renovations
Info:This project consisted of refurbishing the entire exterior and interior areas of a 2 storey seaside property. Situated at North Bondi, this means more exposure to the elements from sun and salt laden winds.
The refurbishments focused on the brick walls, ceilings, bathrooms, windows & doors, decking, plumbing, painting and landscaping. The trades involved were demolition, termite protection, concreting, bricklaying, plumbing, structural steel, carpentry, electrical, painting and landscaping.

Following the structural engineers report, works commenced in July. The first move was to clear the building of ad-hoc fixtures, existing brick walls, lintels, timber windows, stairs and timber floors. This prepared the way for the refurbishment efforts to get underway. This has returned the building and grounds to something of their original aspect.
Where more complete refurbishment proved unviable, elements were stabilised and finished in a certain way. The new brick walls replacing the old immediately reflected the desired final effect, and it stretched to cover neatly all that was exposed contrasting well with the white windows. New aluminium windows and doors were installed; fascia, gutter and eaves were replaced. Keeping the open areas warm, Jarrah timber decking was constructed and oil finished supported with structural steel posts.
Throughout the house, all timber floors were sanded and finished with polyurethane. General painting works covered the newly laid external brickwork with acrylic texture paint, painting internal walls, ceilings and doors. Ceilings plasterboard replaced with new, appropriately insulated, to deliver another energy efficient upshot.
The electrical upgrade focused on minimum heat dissipation with good coverage, and works involved new ceiling lights and support electrical for bathrooms and kitchen. The new high-efficiency natural gas hot water systems replaced the old and a promise of lesser demand on energy. Bathrooms were re-tiled to full height, tap ware and showerheads replaced, frameless shower installed as well as general waterproofing with full plumbing and drainage.

All involved should be congratulated for recognising and ensuring the integrity of the outcome.
Beraldo Design provided unsurpassed documentation and solutions;
Michael Ell Consulting Engineers provided professional advice.
Adam Vitalone and his team of dedicated builders from Kenowell were right on the mark.
The project was completed on budget and within the agreed duration of 14 weeks.

Optus / North Ryde
June 2007
Client:Wilson Parking
Project Management:Vegagroup
Brief:Colour code painting, linemarking, speed humps & car bays sensors installation
Info: Optus commenced moving its Australian head office from North Sydney to the Stockland-owned and managed CentreCourt Estate in Lyon Park Road, Macquarie Park.
Two weeks ahead of the move, Vegagroup was contracted for various works within the carpark. The scope varied from implementation of the new design & layout of the carpark, colour code painting of the entire carpark, linemarking, speed humps installation and car bays sensors.

The 84,000m2 campus-style workplace is a
mini-town within a suburb, incorporating six low rise buildings accommodating 6,500 Optus employees, with support retail facilities, food court, gymnasium, child care centre and 2400 car spaces. This $350 million development is Stockland's flagship office park site. Did you know that Stockland is one of Australia's largest, most diversified property groups?

Following our submission of the Schedule of works coupled with the OH&S and insurance documents, site induction took place and works commenced. Few days late of schedule but nevertheless we started at last.

Wilson Parking was responsible for re-designing the new carpark layout. The bulk of our work comprised the colour-code painting of carpark zones A, B, C & D, covering walls, columns, lift foyer zones, line-marking, speed humps and wheel stoppers.
Twenty painters pressed on hard with day and afternoon shifts. After all, a week from now the place will be buzzing with people and cars, and a successful just-in-time completion was high on our agenda.
On a project of that scale and timeline, everything happens at a certain magnitude. An addition to our brief was the installation of 1,400 state of the art sensors for the advanced car park management system implemented by Wilson Technology Solutions.
Wilson Technology Solutions managed this area of car park access control equipment, they pride themselves on offering a superior range of technically based industry applications with an ability to source any product worldwide that meets specific requirements at short notice.

In his opening speech to guests, amongst them Prime Minister John Howard at the official opening of the campus, Optus CEO Paul O'Sullivan affirmed, ".many of the key players clustered in this high-tech corridor around Macquarie University. Optus arrival gives the corridor a powerful boost - which will be further reinforced because we expect many of our suppliers, customers and collaborators to move into the area as well. It is becoming Australia's answer to Silicon Valley in California, Silicon Fen in Cambridge in the UK, and the high tech clusters around Bangalore in India."

Truer words have never been said.
Next time you're in North Ryde, take a stroll and see the story in the making.
