Lendlease has been operating as the managing contractor for Australian Naval Infrastructure (ANI) to deliver a new shipyard and upgrade of existing facilities at the Osborne Naval Shipbuilding Precinct.
Lendlease have been performing required piling works to the infrastructure build project and are approximately 75 per cent complete. Lendlease will be commencing construction work activities that are planned to be undertaken outside of the normal working hours and have the potential for noise impact. Specifically, substantial concrete works will commenced at the end of July 2018 and will continue for approximately 10 months.
Due to the complex nature of the buildings construction sequence, concrete pour cycles and sizes and duration of concrete slab surface finishing the activities will require early morning starts from 3am and evening works until 9pm Monday to Saturday.
The early morning starts from 3am will involve concrete pumping and placement operations, with on-site pumping and delivery trucks commencing from 4am. The finishing of concrete pours with mechanical trowelling machines may extend up to 8pm weekdays.
The construction sequencing of the concrete pours has been carefully planned out to meet the high standards of the project safety, quality, environment, programme and end-user performance parameters. The works will initially involve 2 concrete pours per week for the first four weeks and will increase to three/ four concrete pours per week.
The concrete works are required to support the substantial structural steel frame for the main buildings which will begin to be constructed in October 2018 and take approximately 10 months.
Lendlease is seeking approval from relevant authorities given the pours will be outside of the Development Application’s approved hours. Public access along Mersey Road will remain unchanged and no road closures will be associated with these night works.
These facilities will deliver new warships to the
Royal Australian Navy
for at least fifty years and once in full production, it is expected that over 4,000 South Australians will be employed in the shipyards.
The project’s noise management and impact mitigation measures will ensure minimal noise generation from the pouring works. However, there may be some noise impacts from the concrete truck deliveries to the site via the main roads.
Please be assured that Lendlease staff are working hard to minimise the construction impacts on residents and businesses and all works will be conducted in line with a Construction Environment Management Plan (CEMP) as required by our development approval.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as this important work for South Australia and the Lefevre Peninsula gets underway.
