Resource and Industry PROJECTS Wheatstone Non-Process Infrastructure Buildings
Project categories

ETC were engaged to complete the design documentation and construction assistance of all of the non process infrastructure buildings on the Wheatstone Development for Chevron. The project includes operation centre, laboratory, maintenance workshop, vehicle maintenance workshop, fire station, warehouse, main gate guardhouse and a number of ancillary transportable facility buildings.

All buildings were designed and drawn in 3D modelled in the AutoDesk REVIT package. This allowed an unprecedented level of documentation detail and services coordination ensuring all potential major issues were identified during design stage and not during construction. The result is a Virtual Construction Model (VCM) that contractors on the ground will use to construct the building. The limited scope allowed to the contractor to deviate from the VCM has meant that a greater emphasis is put on the designer to ensure that the VCM accurately reflects the finished product which proved to be a significant challenge.
