The Australian Department of Defence
Moorebank Units Relocation
OmTrak made project handover easy for Laing O’Rourke
The Department of Defence’s Moorebank Barracks in Sydney needed to be completely demobilised and relocated to a new, purpose-built site at Holsworthy.
Called the Moorebank Units Relocation (MUR) Project, this was the largest single Australian Defence capital works project to be undertaken in over 70 years. It involved the removal and/or rebuilding of 146 separate buildings that comprised 13 Defence Units and four Defence facilities. This included;
- An accommodation precinct
- The School of Military Engineering
- A state-of-the-art pool and gymnasium
- The entry precinct
- The training and brigade precinct
- Civil infrastructure, such as roads, ovals and car parks
- A strategic and efficient approach to ongoing maintenance planning and budgeting
The holistic assessment we undertook at the outset enabled us to establish a thorough strategic plan for the entire project. Working collaboratively with Laing O’Rourke, we conducted an overview of all content, assets and repair processes, and then validated all information. The resulting strategy optimised the project program to meet the delivery objectives.
Our award-winning online platform brought every piece of information from every project team together – in one central and secure place. OmTrak gave the Department of Defence and Laing O’Rourke instant and project-wide visibility over all buildings and all project teams.
