Homebush Substation

This project consisted of the construction of a new transformer bay enclosure to Transformer Bay 11, this was part of a major upgrade which was taking part at the main Ausgrid compound in Homebush.

The works involved the demolition of the existing masonry enclosure, providing trench work to ensure that all underground cables were identified, installation of new piles followed by concrete slab and plinths were constructed in the precast concrete wall panels and columns erected. The steel mesh screens, fire doors, stairs and balustrades were then installed. Once all this was complete Ausgrid was able to install the new Transformer.

Upon completion we were also instructed to construct a new masonry block wall along Underwood Ave. this involved hand trenching footings, new piled followed by filling the footings with concrete and finally erecting a 2.4m high masonry block wall at approx. 110m long.
