Design and construction of a fully integrated building to house a modern metal stamping plant for one of Melbourne's leading manufacturers

Carron Concrete Services was engaged by Dana to Design and Construct a fully integrated Building for this futuristic metal stamping plant. The new building is 1200 square meters in area, 15 meters in height, and a foundation pit meters in depth. The building structure has crane rails for a twin 25 tonne crane of 30 meter bridge span. The site provided challengesfor below ground construction as it is in saturated sand with ground water at 900-mm. Despite these challenges the project was completed on time and on budget.

The first row of pictures are of the construction of the pres pit. The second row show the structural steel and 30 tonne panels being erected to house the stamping plant and the final row show the scrap conveyer and press being installed.
