The Saab Secure Facility located in the Citiswich Business Park achieved Practical Completion in May 2022. This project was delivered for our long-standing client Walker Corporation, on behalf of end users Saab Australia (Saab) and the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
Saab was awarded a contract with the ADF to manufacture, maintain and store mobile hospitals for an as-needed basis. Tomkins’ project brief for the ‘Saab Australia Secure Facility’ was to design and construct a turn-key commercial/industrial facility used to manufacture, maintain and store mobile hospitals for the ADF.
The project therefore included two 6,000m2 warehouses and a 2,000m2 super awning linking the two warehouses. 950m2 of office space and over 15,000m2 of heavy-duty concrete pavement were also delivered as part of this build.
The Operations Warehouse consisted of Tent Assembly Areas, a Maintenance Hub, Bond Store Area, CSSD/Sterilising Room and temperature controlled Cold Stores. The Storage Warehouse included fully integrated racking and services.
The successful delivery of this project builds on Tomkins’ valued relationship with Walker Corporation. Congratulations to the project team on another successful project completion.
Tomkins Commercial recently sat down with Lee Crisp, Senior Project Manager at Walker Corporation to talk about his experience working with Team Tomkins on the Saab Secure Facility:
