Hail damage causes extensive damage at busy petrol station

Caltex Service Centre, Chinchilla QLD
In April 2016, our Queensland team undertook repairs to the Caltex Service Centre at Chinchilla. Chinchilla is located 4 hours west of Brisbane.

The Damage

In late 2015, damaging hail had affected many homes and businesses in this regional Queensland town. As well as the petrol station, the building also housed food retail outlets including Coffee Club, Sunshine Kebabs, Subway, KFC and a bottle shop.

The Damage

The Repair works involved:

  • Removal and replacement of 2,000 m2 of roofing
  • Restoring 15 air conditioning units
  • Rectifying ducting, exhaust fans and refrigerator condensers in the Starmart Shop
  • Repairs to the car & truck refuelling canopies, and
  • Reconstruction of the adjoining building

 

We were required to hold a current Workplace Clearance Accreditation Licence to be able to carry out these works.

Cost of Building and Restoration

The repairs cost over $xxxx.

The Challenges

Works done with no interruption to business

The retail outlets needed to remain open for business for the duration of the works. Some these businesses were open all day and night. Working efficiently, the team saved a full two weeks to complete construction which had been estimated to take 7 weeks.

Safety concerns at a busy site

The service station was a popular rest stop for both cars and trucks. Constant traffic and a steady stream of pedestrians meant we had to take great care as we worked on site.
