Insight were appointed by BHPB to carry out a feasibility study and procurement strategy for the delivery of 300 dwellings on the Hamilton Precinct sub-division to be developed by BHPB.

BHP Billiton required housing to be provided as quickly as possible to support their planned expansion programme. Extensive research was undertaken to assess builders with the capacity and capability to complete the projects in accordance with the schedule and BHP Billiton’s expectations. A minimum of 3 builders with the possibility of up to 6 were identified for these three projects to deliver the houses over a 3 to 4 year period with the last of the homes proposed to be completed in 2016.

Challenges faced in achieving the project requirements were the supply of infrastructure services such as water and sewer; major expansion works to upgrade existing systems were not available at the time of development and in the case of sewer, interim pumping services were required.

The QEII CEP project also services the Perth Childrens Hospital.

Unique elements of the project that IPS managed include the inspection of internationally sourced equipment, integration of the new system on a progressive basis with the existing; multiple services diversions to allow for the construction of the inground tunnel; management and coordination of multiple clients and stakeholders including 4 major construction companies on the one site.

Insight personnel managed and attended to the major services cut-ins of chilled water and heating water with the existing QEII Hospital mains and worked 24 hour alternate shifts between two resources allocated to the project. IPS’s resources often worked 60 hour weeks to ensure delivery on time and to meet the after hours work demands of the project where the Works had the potential to impact Hospital operations.

This project was the second undertaken by Insight on behalf of CCI Group and similar to The Park Hive Shopping Centre was on a greenfields site directly opposite the Park Hive. This project was complex as a result of the high quality finish and detailed coordination required between the Clients kitchen and bar fitout team and the Builder.

The Project included a drive through bottle shop, full serve restaurant and tavern, alfresco dining areas and more than 100 carparking spaces. The finishes included nationally sourced laminated exposed timber hyne beams, polished concrete floors and high quality timber finishes to bars, doors, wall cladding and ceiling systems.

Challenges faced by the Project were numerous including the discovery of unsuitable material on site on commencement and the late 2010 Queensland floods damaging the hyne beams prior to delivery. The developer overcame these issues with IPS’s support and guidance.
