Case Study

Farley Wastewater Treatment Plant

Project Date: August, 2020

Project Location: Farley, NSW

Project Type: Civil

Project Requirements

The project required scaffold to several buildings and tanks on the site.

This included full perimeter scaffolding and internal birdcage scaffolding (like a big stage floor). The purpose of the scaffolding was for blockwork, soffits and installing the roof structure.

Building Heights performed an impressive engineering construction method which involved constructing the entire roof on the ground and lifting and moving it with a crawler crane onto the building. This proved to be a great success!

Project Challenges

The project was a Government State Water Infrastructure project. John Holland was the head contractor. Thomas Scaffolding were sub-contracted by Building Heights who were engaged by John Holland to construct the structures. These projects require a specific level of documentation and strict safety procedures to qualify to be awarded any works. We take pride in our ability to service such projects and our compliance systems which make it easy for our clients.

All scaffolds required design and engineer certification prior to install, whilst this is something we regularly provide, it can also provide pinch points on lead times with urgent site requirements. This results in the requirement of quick action from the site team, our branch managers and then internally with administration and drafting.

Project Summary

The project totaled approx. 55T of scaffolding which was rotated across the different structures as the build progressed.

This was the third Wastewater project in the area after recently completing Dungog and Kurri Kurri upgrades. The State Water Project is estimated at over $30 million and the expansion of the Farley Wastewater upgrade works will allow it to service up to a further 8000 homes in the area.
