Year 2018 – 2019

Value $13M

Our Role Project Manager and Superintendent

Project MKSEA Pty Ltd engaged Insight Project Services (Insight) to oversee and project manage the design and construction of the new Northline Transport Distribution Facility in Perth, which is the first industrial facility constructed on the Roe Highway Logistics Park Kewdale.

The site is 39,835m2 and the new facility has been designed specifically to suit the bespoke operational requirements of the Tenant (Northline Transport Services).

The facility consists of a 19,725m2 building comprising Warehouse, Freight Area (including Ops Office) and Breezeway Area and a 525m2 Main Office. The site is supported by an AQIS Class 1.3 Wash bay and 20,000m2 of external heavy duty combi hardstand concrete pavement.

Situated on the Roe Highway Logistics Park Kewdale, the land adjoins the new Kewdale Freight Rail Interchange and will afford direct rail side access to the rear of the site via a cargo link, which will allow the rail operator to access Northline’s site to deliver and pick up containers, rather than transporting via the road network.

The development has required close liaison between the City of Gosnells, the developer of the Estate and all authorities in order to complete the project on time whilst the Estate works were still proceeding around the construction of the new facility.

The station house building was designed and constructed by Perkins Builders in unison with Oldfield Knott Architects and includes unique ride theming created by Adventure World to accentuate the old world Druid theme. Additional works included in the contract are a photo kiosk, new park ablution block and all of the foundations that support the rollercoaster.

The custom built rollercoaster includes four inversions through daylight and a secret dark ride section in the Station House as well as a zero-g-roll, rollover loop, cobra roll and inline loop all offering a hair raising journey over 630 metres. Riders experience turns, drops and disorienting twists while they travel in the open air and in the dark.

The coordination of these works was successfully managed between Adventure World, IPS, Perkins and Gerstlauer without incident. 99% of all rollercoaster foundations were perfectly aligned with the roller coaster structure despite both foundations and coaster being manufactured on opposite sides of the planet before being brought together on site.
