C-17 Airfield Facilities Upgrade
Client: Department of Defence
On 3 March 2006, the Australian Government announced that the Department of Defence would acquire four C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, providing the Australian Defence Force (ADF) with a superior strategic global airlift capability.
The procurement of the C-17 aircraft required the substantial upgrading of existing facilities and infrastructure at RAAF Base Edinburgh; RAAF Base Darwin and RAAF Base Townsville. The Lambert & Rehbein Defence Division were commissioned to be the design consultants for the project, which has included:
- The Functional Design Brief.
- The Architectural, Structural, Services and Airside designs.
- Detailed technical input from all our design disciplines.
- Liaison with project stakeholders around Australia.
The project was undertaken with a design engineering approach; that included 30% Concept Design Report; 50% Schematic Design Report; and 90% Detailed Design Report.
Lambert & Rehbein provided all documents and drawings on time ready for the client to tender to industry.
