Mitcon Projects has successfully delivered the complete FRP package on the battlefield airlifter project which included numerous buildings such as the HQ/Hanger facility, Fire Station, Bureau of Meteorology, Workshop, Training facility and various other smaller buildings.



scope of works

Mitcon Projects delivered the full FRP package (including material supply) across numerous buildings. The provision of all labour plant and equipment & materials as a turn key concrete structure package including detailed excavation, steelfixing, formwork, concrete place and finish for footings, ground slabs, walls/columns and suspended slabs in buildings consisting of approximately 11,000m3 of concrete.


key outcomes

Mitcon Projects consider it one of their key responsibilities to ensure that local resources are engaged wherever possible. The BFA project sourced 98.4% of its labour locally and also engaged with numerous local subcontractors.


A federated 3d Navisworks model was available for the project and the Mitcon Projects site team took full advantage of this tool.  By using the model, the team were able to detect potential design clashes or missing information and work with the Client to resolve the issues before they arose on site.


By working closely with the Managing Contractor, Mitcon Projects were able to deliver this large and complex project inside a live, operational RAAF base, meeting the needs of their Client and Stakeholders.
