SA Structural - RAAF Base Edinburgh: Air 7000

Located 25 kilometres north of Adelaide, the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) Edinburgh base is home to the Australian Defence Force’s intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and electronic warfare capabilities.

The Air 7000 Phase 2B project, managed by Lend Lease and funded by the Federal Government, will deliver upgraded facilities, infrastructure and airfield works to the Main Operating Base at Edinburgh to support the new P-8A maritime surveillance aircraft, systems and crew.  The upgrade will include building new facilities and car parking as well as expanding base logistics and an extension to the existing runways, at a cost of $350-$500 million.

As part of the expansion works, SA Structural appointed Portolesi Structural to undertake the supply and application of intumescent paint and polyurethane topcoat to steel elements, ensuring the new structure will achieve a 1.5 hour fire rating.

The benefits of using intumescent paint incorporate various factors including it is offers a higher damage resistant tolerance, is a thin film therefore light weight, fast and efficient to apply, aesthetically appealing, and can be applied off site.  As such, a fireproofing dedicated warehouse was established at Wingfield, allowing Portolesi Structural personnel to spray and adhere to the tight construction program.

As our standard policy, all site work was monitored under a comprehensive Quality Assurance program to provide security to all stakeholders.
