Industrial Water Project of the Year 2016

Laing O’Rourke’s Northern Water Treatment Plant – Wandoan QLD, has been named the Industrial Water Project of the Year at the 2016 Global Water Awards. “The application of DfMA methodology (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) resulted in a significant reduction in site hours, improved productivity and quality with a material reduction in safety risk, when compared with a traditional ‘stick built’ approach.”

To construct the acoustic roof and walls of the treatment plant, Durra Panel, Durra Steel Sections (roof purlins and wall girts) and metal cladding were assembled on ground into large modules (9m wide x 16m long) and then crane hoisted into position using the Durra Lifting Frame. The 5000m2 building envelope including the acoustic lining was completed in less than three weeks. “Laing O’Rourke delivered a high quality product that received praise from the client on a number of fronts, including seven separate safety awards.”
