Patricks, Port Botany
Northrop were appointed to design several structures as part of the redevelopment transforming Patrick’s Botany shipping and logistics facility.
The project included a new control tower, office building and four new structural steel workshop buildings. The bulk of the structure was prefabricated on the ground and then craned into place. By pre casting components and then lifting them, Northrop were able to construct the tower faster and safer, as the numbers of workers at height was drastically reduced.
Through the clever use of prefabrication, Northrop was able to avoid formwork, reducing time and cost for our client, Hansen Yuncken.
