ICM Construction was engaged to complete the transformation and modernisation of this iconic outback Queensland tourism destination.
Completed over a 6-month period while the museum was closed to the public was complex in terms of the scope of works and the unique conditions present. For example, part of the complex’s roof had to be repainted. Accessing the roof before the daily temperatures climbed to over 40 degrees was essential. Internal ceiling height were also well over 10 metres. Elevated Work Platforms had to be manoeuvred around complex and antique museum displays. Further, access to specialist trades not readily available in the local area meant to coordination of trades was time consuming.
Adding to the complexity was the need to “share” the construction site with specialist museum display designers.
Construction was completed to allow the museum to re-open to the public.
