The Pilbara Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facility (PDARF) is located in South Headland located in a private location off the Great Northern Highway. The site is a Cyclone Region D location so wind loading was very high. The intricate design and detailing of the project required a real challenge and luckily Dorian Engineering Consultants have the capabilities as every one of our projects are modelled in 3D. By modelling the structures in 3D we are able to identify the clashes with any structure early on in the design development before they reached the site.
This project also had some budget restrictions and the and cost savings were required throughout the project.
