Ballarat West Police Station
Sep 2014 – June 2016
Full Project Management and Contract Administration
Fully designed and documented with a fixed lump sum construction contract.
In response to the growth of Ballarat West, the State Government announced an investment for a new emergency services hub and is part of the Government’s commitment to building a safer Victoria and meeting the needs of growing communities.
Accuraco was engaged by Victoria Police as Project Manager for the design and construction of this new facility. Covering approximately 1,125sqm, the specialised building accommodates a Uniform Branch, Highway Patrol, a Divisional Response unit, a Pro-active Programs unit, as well as administrative staff and executive management. On site car parking is provided for a number of operational vehicles, Police members’ private vehicles and visitor parking in accordance with Town Planning requirements.
The new Police Station at Ballarat West also helped meet the needs of the Ballarat West Employment Zone.
After a public EOI and a select tender process, Ballarat based contractor Nicholson Construction was appointed to construct this new 16-hour Police Station, a Project fully designed and documented by Strata PNA Architects.
