Peter Hunt Architect were engaged to design the 6,900m² Control Centre and Headquarters for building for Roy Hill.  The facility includes offices for 342 personnel, control suite for 71 personnel, shared amenities, 100 car basement parking and 242 car bays located within the Perth International Airport Precinct. Operators within the Control Room will remotely operate mine production activities and rail movements to shipping destinations.

We worked closely with Specialist Engineering Consultants, Human Factors Engineers, Security and IT specialists in the brief finalisation and schematic design phases to ensure that best practice ESD, ergonomics, Client Fit-out and IT integration was captured seamlessly in the design outcome.

 

Gorgon Barrow Island

GORGON OPERATIONS / LABORATORY AND ADMINISTRATION BUILDINGS, BARROW ISLAND WA

As part of the Gorgon Permanent Buildings, the 4,100m2 Operations Centre and 2,100m2 Laboratory form part of the critical operational facilities on the Administration Site. The Operations Centre houses a Control Suite which plays a fundamental part in the gas harvesting operations, while tests are conducted in the laboratory to assure the quality of the harvested gas prior to exportation.

Due to the environmental restrictions of the site as a Class A Reserve, the design was developed to enable as much off-site prefabrication as possible to minimise the impact of works on the surrounding environment during construction.  The environmentally sensitive nature of the site was a foremost consideration during the design development process and had a direct impact on safety in design considerations, materials selection, on-going maintenance requirements, whole of life and durability and impact on existing flora and fauna. The design process also required Peter Hunt Architect to meet both Chevron’s international specifications while also meeting local building and construction codes. This required careful consultation with Chevron as the company’s specific requirements occasionally conflicted with Local Authority regulations.
