In a departure from traditional on-site construction, Kubale Constructions was awarded the contract for the manufacture of large guttering modules for the roof at the Wonthaggi Desalination Plant. Rather than constructing them in-situ, our large storage warehouse was fitted with custom designed jigging and equipment to handle the job in-house.

The production schedule demanded by the principle contractor (Theiss) fluctuated and was typically very aggressive. It was necessary that we produce the modules in-step with the building schedule of the plant at Wonthaggi; delays were not accepted.

Simply handling the modules safely was difficult because each 8 metre steel section weighed over 500kg. Works included lining the modules with copper treated ply followed by a seam welded PVC membrane (technique new to AU). Performing this job indoors provided protection from the weather, enabled proper lighting and gave us a controlled workspace. We were required to learn new techniques and develop our own production methodology to maintain quality and increase production output as demanded.
 
Over time, we contributed to improvements in the module design which Theiss embraced. We hit every deadline imposed by this aggressive schedule while maintaining excellent quality in workmanship.

Some of the images provided are aerial or taken from a distance which shows the location of the gutters within the context of the entire building. Kubale Constructions’ work was limited to the construction of the guttering modules.

Kubale Constructions successfully tendered for the contract to build the Sugarloaf RPS as part of an upgrade to the water treatment facilities at the Sugarloaf Reservoir. This became the first of many jobs awarded to the company by the Water Resources Alliance.

Works on the construction of the new pump station included a significant industrial concrete slab with precast panels on a structural steel framework. The project then concluded with the internal fit out and associated site civil works.

This project required a lot of planning and a staged execution to work within the limitations of what was a fully operational site supplying drinking water to Melbourne.

Kubale Constructions delivered the project on time and on budget and received a certificate of appreciation from our satisfied client.

The Sugarloaf Backwash Station was the second contract awarded to Kubale Constructions by the Water Resources Alliance. Upon completion of the Sugarloaf RPS project, we commenced construction of this new plant and backwash station. The project was similar to the RPS in that it involved precast panels and structural steel.

This project was particularly difficult because the site was very steep requiring careful planning and additional safety measures relating to the position and use of cranes. The site was operational at the time and our staff were required to avoid any disruption to the water supply.

The total contract value was approximately $300k and was delivered on time and on budget.

Construction of the Sugarloaf Filter Gallery was the third contract awarded to Kubale Constructions by the Water Resources Alliance. Running simultaneously with the Sugarloaf Backwash Station project, we commenced construction of this new building late in 2009.

The project involved structural steel works, colourbond cladding, the internal fit-out along with associated civil works. The building was over 200 square metres and built adjacent the new filter galleries constructed on site.

Again, this project was completed on time, on budget and to the client’s satisfaction.

Situated adjacent the Tarago River in Gippsland, the Rokeby Pump Station was part of a major upgrade program for the processing of water from the Tarago Reservoir in Victoria. Kubale Constructions was contracted to build the new plant room to house pumps and other monitoring equipment.

This was our first job for Gippsland Water which assisted us in winning further contracts. Works included a significant industrial concrete slab, mains by-pass valve pit, structural steelwork and a Bondek roof. The fit-out included the installation of several water pumps, a monorail, electrical controls and switchboards along with stainless steel pipe work, a rising main construction and the installation of flow meters.  All the associated civil work and asphalt paving was included.

The schedule required a great deal of coordination with the authorities to facilitate live tap-ins to the Pederson and Tarago Water mains which supply the local region and the Mornington Peninsula with drinking water.
