Project Value: $2.2 Million
Australia’s tunneling infrastructure is positioned to boom in the coming decades under significant government investment. To To skill up thousands of future Australian tunnel workers, CPE was awarded the D&C contract to engineer and build 2x replica tunnels. The two structures were to replicate a metro style TBM built rail tunnel and a road header built mined tunnel. Both replica structures will be used to simulate underground conditions where construction training can be performed. Structural steel underpinned both structures and enabled all of the critical tunnel elements to be brought together.
CPE was also awarded structural steel for the surrounding building and the support structure and erection of a TBM cutting head which was purchased specifically for the training facility.
