GE Aviation Facility, Brisbane Airport

The GE Aviation Asia-Pacific Service Centre project reached Practical Completion in July 2022. This project saw around 30,000m3 of cut used to fill earthworks in addition to ground remediation piling prior to work on the base build. The build consisted of a sizeable service centre home to a gantry crane, workshop, avionics room, spray booth and a 2,028m2 two-level open plan office.

In the final stages of the build, Tomkins oversaw the final commissioning of all the services and equipment, including the gantry crane, spray booth and lift.

This was followed by witness testing from Brisbane Airport Corporation stakeholders and specialised third party consultants. This thorough commission and testing program allowed for a smooth transition for GE Aviation from their existing facility, with their various departments stating they are very impressed with the design and workmanship of the build.

This purpose-built facility is the largest in the Asia-Pacific region and is instrumental in keeping passenger aircraft safely in the skies, as well as performing repairs to propellers for the Royal Australian Air Force fleet.

Congratulations to the project team on their seamless delivery for GE Aviation and our long-term client, Brisbane Airport Corporation.
