WOOMERA AIRFIELD UPGRADE
WOOMERA, SOUTH AUSTRALIA
The RAAF Woomera Airfield is an operational defence facility, first built in 1947 and situated some 450km north of Adelaide in remote South Australia. The airfield is under the command and control of the Woomera Test Range Facility and plays an integral part of aerospace testing and evaluation for the ADF.
In 2014, RedAnt were asked to provide advice on tendering the upgrade of the Woomera Airfield, which included for taxiway modifications, apron extensions, services and airfield lighting and general civil works.
The RedAnt team assisted the tenderer with project planning and staging, constructability review, risk & opportunity assessment, tender phase procurement and submission preparation.
RedAnt successfully identified a number of important time and cost saving initiatives that presented a compelling value for money statement and ultimately, a highly competitive bid that was very well received.
