Project Overview

Assisting Rotor Solutions Australia to fly sky high, Asset Building Systems was engaged in designing and constructing a new structural steel helicopter hangar and COLA building to accommodate their growth as a company. For more than a decade, Rotor Solutions have been committed to helping rural farmers and landholders between Melbourne and Bathurst maintain their properties and businesses. As the precision spraying experts, they undertake precision aerial agriculture, charter operations, assisting with fire management services and helping ensure public safety by patrolling powerlines. Rotor Solutions prides itself on its meticulously maintained aircraft and support equipment fleet, which falls back onto importance of the structural steel aircraft hangar assets required to protect its helicopters. The project scope consisted of a large commercial-size, web-truss rafter with a portal-framed helicopter hanger to house Rotor Solution’s entire fleet, architecturally designed HQ offices with alucabond the aluminium composite panel system, driveway, COLA-style structure, fencing and ancillary works. All steel structures were engineered to withstand high winds and designed with bird-proofing features for peace of mind.

Why were Asset Building Systems Chosen?

Asset Building was selected to project manage Rotor Solution’s project due to our ability to provide a fast, personalised, professional service backed by rural values. Our mantra of ‘Dirt to Done’ truly shines through in this exemplary project.

Seeking an aviation building specialist and single-point contractor who could manage the entire project from start to finish was essential to Rotor Solutions during their selection process.

Not only were Asset Building Systems (ABS) quick to produce a fixed-price quote for the aircraft hangar, we offered certainty in the project delivery timeline. We affirmed client confidence in presenting our crane lift building method’s superior WHS and compliance advantages.

Running an active and busy business where safety and detail are paramount, having one point of contact and accountability was non-negotiable when selecting the best fit for the job – and that’s where Asset Building Systems nailed the first prerequisite.

Not only were we the most responsive builder and designer. We stood onsite with their family on a mid-summer day, discussing the helicopter hangar project details!

At the official opening in February 2018,  Hugh and Monique Acton-Adams (Rotor Solutions) hosted more than 180 people, including Australian entrepreneur Dick Smith, and members for Farrer Sussan Ley and Albury councillors, including Alice Glachan, Graham Docksey and Henk van de Ven.

A Superior Building Methodology

Using our crane-lift method means that the entire roof structure and columns of the helicopter hangar are constructed on the ground, including insulation, roofing, electrical, skylight installation and engineering checks, before being crane-lifted into place.

Compared to the conventional practices of shed building, ABS’s crane-assisted building methodology offers unmatched safety outcomes by removing the dangers of working at heights and securing construction efficiencies by building from the ground – meaning fewer defects and greater certainty through our systematic Quality Assurance controls.
