Caltex Refinery Amenities Building
MacPhail & Sproul Architects
Kane Constructions was awarded this $2 million project in early 2012 following a competitive tender process. An existing car park and structure was demolished to make way for a new blast resistant change room and amenities building for the refinery operators. The building contained shower and amenities facilities along with a first aid room and supervisors office space. Being within the refinery ‘blast zone’, the building contained unique structural design aspects and building technology to ensure it met the strict conditions of the blast resistance report. The project was delivered within the seven month contract programme and works were coordinated with the Caltex Refinery to ensure there was no interference with refinery operations.
