ENGINEERING PROJECTS:

Besix Watpac Constructions - Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital Stage 2 building project ($250 Million AU Dollar Project)

The Hornsby Kuring-Gai hospital project was a design and construct project that involved building an Emergency Department, a new Medical Imaging building for CT, X Ray, and Ultrasound rooms. It also included the main build with Intensive Care Units, Inpatient care wards and hospital staff offices. My role on this project was to manage the design of the mechanical air conditioning HVAC, BMCS, electrical and communications design, hydraulic systems, sprinkler and fire detection systems, high voltage substation, vertical transport lifts and the major medical equipment for the CT, MRI, X Ray, medical pendant arms within the patient rooms. The design was completed in Building Information Modelling (BIM) with the architects and structural engineers coordinating with the service designers to coordinate a clash free hospital within the design which is then relayed during the construction phase with onsite installation. My role of services design engineer involved managing the contract with the subcontractors to ensure the quality standards of the hospital project are met and that the project runs smoothly with a design program established linking to the construction program for the best delivery possible.

Besix Watpac Constructions - Poly Centre CBD Sydney ($300 Million AU Dollar Project)

The Poly Centre Project was a commercial high-rise building within Sydney CBD city. My role involved establishing the contracts and scope of works for the mechanical air conditioning HVAC, BMCS, electrical and communication equipment, hydraulics, sprinkler and fire detection systems, civil works package, vertical transport, fire engineering, high voltage substation works and managing the design process and contracts to produce a Building Information Modelling for cash detection and services shop drawings. The BIM model was coordinated with the architect and structural engineer WSP to ensure that all areas of the project are coordinated through design and construction delivery to links to the construction program to provide onsite efficiencies and takes into consideration the buildability and overall end product for the client and tenants use.

Crown Group – Infinity by Crown Green Square ($250 Million AU Dollar Project)

This project was a design and construct project with 401 residential apartments, hotel suites, commercial retail space, public domain work and railway tunnel connection to Green Square Station from the Infinity by Crown Building. My role for this project was to establish the contracts and scope of works and manage the service trades from design through to installation and commissioning of all services involved for the new building. The project utilized Revit and BIM modelling by all service trades with clash detection with design meetings and model meeting conducted until all shop drawings were approved for construction.

Parkview – Canterbury Leagues Club Stage 2 works ($55 Million AU Dollar Project)

This project was a design and construct project which involves constructing and completing structural extension work with a live operating Leagues Club. The Stage 2 works involve extension works for a Café and Cocktail bar, fit out of preparation kitchens, new Gaming area extensions and a 5-level underground Carpark. The Stage 2 works involved a lot of services infrastructure works for the future stages with a new mechanical plantroom, new fire pump room and fire control room, new main switch board & generator to prepare for the new construction zones. My role on this project was a design coordinator/project engineer. The weekly activities involved chairing design meetings, attending client meetings, and completing QA, shop drawing reviews and statusing & creating programs for the subcontractors for completion and handover. As well as maintaining technical specifications to make sure that the consultants and Australian Standards are adhered to throughout the ongoing construction of mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and fire services.

Hansen Yuncken - Wollongong Hospital Illawarra Elective Surgical Project (IESS) ($55 Million AU Dollar Project)

The Hansen Yuncken site team delivered a design & construct project which included five engineers focusing on different aspects on the build from structure, façade, services & wall, and partition and internal fit out.

The Illawarra Elective Surgical Project (IESS) comprises of the construction of 7 new theatres, a new high volume short stay unit, a new ambulatory care unit, 24 patient bay Intensive Care Unit ICU, a new Central Sterile Supply Department CSSD, 2 levels of In-Patient Units, In-Patient Unit support for nurses/doctors and Close Observation Bays. This building connects with Block A with link bridges to combine existing facilities and services.

Within the project team my role involved completing weekly design meetings, answering ‘requests for information’ (RFI), coordinating the design process through BIM 3D modelling and clash detection, reviewing construction drawings and coordinating and managing the services on site through scope of works, quality assurance QA, defects, sample approval through the hospital and utilizing BIM Field to complete safety, quality assurance, defects. To complete the project for handover and completion

Hansen Yuncken - Wollongong Hospital Emergency Department Extension ($17 Million AUD Dollar Project)

My role for this project involved completing weekly design meetings, answering Requests for Information, coordinating the design process through BIM 3D modelling and clash detection, reviewing construction drawings and coordinating and managing the services on site through scope of works, quality assurance, defects, and sample approval through the hospital. The most challenging aspect of this build was that the hospital was live with patient care therefore all works needed to scheduled with the hospitals engineering department at least 3 weeks in advance of the construction on site to coordinate with the hospital staff.

Hansen Yuncken - Wollongong Hospital Refurbishment of the Existing Block A & Block B Building ($15 Million AUD Dollar Project)

This project involved dealing with a live hospital and completing stages handovers for the level 0 loading dock area, Level 1 existing Emergency Department, the front of house Admissions area connecting the IESS with Block A as well as level 2 & 3 which aids the existing operating theatres with new operating changerooms and staff facilities to complement the new building and upgrade the facilities. There was significant planning required with the hospital which involved taking into account infection control and understanding the effect to the existing services as well as reaching the target program and integrating the existing electrical systems i.e. nurse call, intercom, and security and fire systems to allow for an efficient transition with minimal affects to the operation of the hospital.

Hansen Yuncken - Wollongong Hospital - Engineering Workshop ($2.5 Million Dollar Project)

The Engineering Workshop was built to facilitate the hospital’s engineering maintenance team. The structure is built on top of the existing theatres on Block A and connects into level 4 and level 3 of the existing building. My role on this project was coordinating and managing the services trades and integrating the services with the existing services as well as providing a new HVAC and exhaust system for the engineering equipment. Health Infrastructure was heavily involved on this project due to the risk of building on the existing theatres and this project was part of the $30 Million dollar Carpark extension

Hansen Yuncken – Sikorsky Maintenance Repair Operations & Logistics facilities Nowra ($35 Million Dollar Project)

The Sikorsky TLS (Through Life Support) Facility project has been undertaken to provide the maintenance support for the deployment of the Seahawk MH60 “Romeo” class of helicopter adjacent to HMAS Albatross. The project comprises two major developments: The MRO (Maintenance and Repair Operations) facility, a combined helicopter hanger, workshop, and administrative support operational base. A Logistics facility, comprising racking stores, dispatch and receiving, and supporting offices. The role I completed on this project is working on the project start up and coordinating the service contractors through design meetings, RFI’s and coordinating variations in the design which included explosion proof services connections for compressed air to facilitate eight Seahawk MH60 Romeo Helicopters. My main roles were to manage the HVAC, electrical, hydraulic and fire systems from design through to installation and commissioning.
