Air Wing Building for Vic Pol and Air Ambulance Victoria

Project Details

Address:

Essendon Airport, Essendon Fields

Client:

Victoria Police and Air Ambulance Victoria

Challenges:

PPM faced the complications of an airport (General Aviation) remaining operational whilst project-managing the design and construction of a new shared facility to house the Victoria Police Air Wing and Air Ambulance Victoria. Challenges included construction ‘airside’ in an operational airport environment and delivery within the probity, tendering and contractual requirements of two separate State Government Tenants

Solutions:

Initial project success came as PPM provided assistance in programming and cost planning which was used to assist Vic Pol and Air Ambulance Victoria in obtaining necessary funding approval to commence and complete the project.  The project itself was unique combining aircraft hangar and aircraft maintenance facilities together with separate control rooms for each of VicPol and Air Ambulance, police station, hospital, staff accommodation and security requirements all being combined into one bespoke building

Results:

The project was built as a shared facility but funded by separate Governmental Departments and was delivered to a high standard, within budget and programme
