Value: $46.5 million
Contract type: Construction Management, Lump Sum, Schedule of Rates
Summary: Built Environs delivered the $46.5 million Cargill Australia Malting Facility (formerly the Joe White Malting Plant) in the Perth suburb of Forrestfield
As construction manager, Built Environs was responsible for all of the structural construction, process piping, installation and commissioning of the specialised malting equipment, along with overall project site management and safety.
As a key member of the design team, Built Environs also added value to the project by modifying aspects of the design to reduce construction costs and time and improve safety.
The 120,000-tonne-capacity plant required a range of mechanical engineering works, including aeration blowers, glass tube heat exchangers, pumps, process piping and general services, including automatic high pressure water washing systems.
The Built Environs engineering capability that delivered this project is now provided by the South Australian engineering office of parent company, McConnell Dowell, offering clients access to both the expertise of the former Built Environs engineering teams and the international experience of McConnell Dowell.
