On Friday 12th August 2016, McMahon Services were thrilled to accept the award for “Excellence in a Commercial Refurbishment / Redevelopment over $5 million” at the SA Master Builders Association Awards, for the iconic Lion West End Redevelopment Works.
The closure of Lion’s Swan Brewery in Western Australia signalled that an extensive redevelopment was required at South Australia’s West End Brewery, in Thebarton. McMahon Services was engaged by Lion to undertake the role of Construction Manager and execute the roll out of significant upgrade works throughout the brewery.
Labelled the ‘Hyde Park Project’, the diverse range of works was completed over a 24 month period.
Using the Construction Management contracting model, McMahon Services were able to provide Lion with a single point of contact across the entire infrastructure upgrade – which included support during the scheduled seven week brewery shut down.
The upgrade works were required to accommodate increased capacity and production, including the upgrade of infrastructure and coordination of scheduled shutdown works to assist the transition between old and new.
To plan and manage the program of works, a Client Owner’s team was made up of McMahon Services’ key personnel, Process Design Consultants and Lion Representatives who provided a steering committee that worked collaboratively to demonstrate quality and best value for project outcomes.
This was particularly important as many of the projects were design and construct and required a highly collaborative team approach.
Over 250 individual projects were completed by McMahon Services as part of the redevelopment works at the brewery under the Construction Management contracting model.
McMahon Services not only managed a high number of specialist Subcontractors, Subconsultants and key Suppliers throughout the works, but also self-delivered many activities with in-house trades. This included carpenters, plumbers, electricians, crane operators, riggers, demolition personnel, asbestos removal technicians, civil engineers, machine operators and general labourers.
