Major Earthworks & Access Roads to Breaching Range

This project was the first of its kind for Antoun and opened many new opportunities with Defence Clients carrying out high-risk and complicated works. The project took place on 12,000m2 of the main artillery testing ground for explosive trials, creating a high risk of live explosives within the site. Prior to any excavation or construction, we were required to complete the clearance of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO).

Location:

Holsworthy, NSW

Budget:

$1m – $2m

Duration:

16 weeks

The scope of works included

  • Clearance of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) prior to any excavation occurring
  • Clearance of all vegetation
  • Construction of new access roads to the breaching ranges
  • Construction of a Heavy Breaching Range consisting of R.C. precast walls, steel sheet and steel ship hatches
  • Construction of a Light Breaching Range consisted of industrial roller doors, reinforced core filled block walls and brick walls
  • Construction of a permanent administration building, preparation shed, safety bunker, and explosives and detonator storage areas

The results

The completed works exceeded the expectations of the client and have since become a landmark project for future breaching ranges to be replicated interstate at other Defence facilities.
