  • A MESSAGE froM thE chAirMAn

    The Ertech group continues to grow in strength and capability despite the downturn that has beset much of our industry.

    Driven by our employee ownership model, our resourceful and experienced management team, consisting of more than 100 engineers and multi-skilled field staff, our group continues to flourish.

    Coupled with investment made in our business systems and the successful completion of our four year contract with the Gorgon project on Barrow Island, we are now an established contractor in the oil and gas sector. Our continued success in improving our safety performance throughout the group is something that we are particularly proud of.

    In our early years we gained a reputation as a self-performing civil contractor delivering road works, detailed and bulk earthworks, pipelines and membrane lined storages and concrete structures.

    In recent years we have developed our capacity to construct more complex concrete structures (with the acquisition of FormAction) and to carry out maintenance activities such as asset protection and remediation (with the establishment of Duratec Australia).

    Most recently we have further diversified by forming Ertech Geomarine, which specialises in ground stabilisation and marine works.

    Our strategy to enhance our ability to execute large scale contracts by joint venture contracting has resulted this year in being awarded two separate major projects with international contracting partners.

    Firstly, the award by Bechtel of the Construction General Services 3 contract at Wheatstone to the Kiewit Ertech Joint Venture, which has a contract period of up to four and a half years.

    Secondly, the award of the new Perth Stadium Pre-Construction Site Works Design and Construct contract by the Government of Western Australia to the Ertech Keller Joint Venture.

    The Ertech group continues to carry out much of the work that it has traditionally done in Perth and on regional projects for clients such as LandCorp, the Water Corporation, Main Roads WA and private developers.

    In 32 years our employee-owned group has grown to a size where we can realistically claim that no project has a size or complexity that is beyond our capacity.

    We value and thank the clients that have enabled us to reach this far and we look forward to working with them to further enhance the services we offer.

    The new building at 118 Motivation Drive has a site area of 12,000m2 and includes offices, training areas and a workshop, and is a significant step for our company, representing growth and development.

    “Ertech is a real West Australian success story,” Mr Barnett said.

    “Since it first opened 32 years ago, [Ertech] has become a significant player in the civil construction industry with more than 800 employees and clients drawn from the resources industry, government authorities and private development companies.”

    “It is testament to the company’s success that it has outgrown [its] previous premises and I am very pleased to see the company move to these new premises here at Enterprise Park. I wish it continued success,” Mr Barnett said.

    FormAction and Duratec have now moved to 108 Motivation Drive; for the first time, all of the Ertech group companies are located within the same complex.

    In the last 32 years, the group has built a strong reputation for being a resourceful and responsive civil contractor with the ability to self-perform and work collaboratively.

    utAh point port ExpAnSionSoon after its establishment in March 2012, Ertech Geomarine began works at the Utah Point Expansion Project for Atlas Iron Limited.

    Ertech Geomarine was appointed as the design and build contractor for the project, which will allow for an increase in capacity to 15 million tonnes per annum.

    Ertech Geomarine provided specialist design services for the improvement of approximately 50,000m2 of stockyard

    necessary to support the 18m high stockpiles to be placed under Stage 2 of the development. Ertech Geomarine also designed and installed the support piling to the mechanical reclaimer and the foundations for the stackers.

    The Interim works were carried out through an internal JV between Ertech Geomarine and Ertech. These works included the construction of stockyard floor, the embankments for the mechanical plant and the lining of a 30,000m3 stormwater retention pond, associated pump station and pipework.

    Ertech Geomarine undertook construction of the southern access road, incorporating precast concrete retaining walls for truck dump hoppers; installation of foundation piles to the central reclaimer; installation of site drainage and precast concrete culverts; installation of erosion protection slopes; and construction of site haul roads.

    The Pilbara Clearwater Alliance, comprising the Water Corporation and Tenix Australia, is working to provide $200 million worth of major upgrades to wastewater services in the Pilbara to cater for expected residential and commercial growth.

    One of the key projects for the alliance is the upgrade of the South Hedland Waste Water Treatment Plant. When completed, the plant will have the capacity to produce 6 million litres per day of treated waste water for re-use.

    Ertech’s earthworks contract involves the supply of all plant, labour and materials to carry out general site works, drainage, earthworks and lining to anaerobic ponds and sludge drying bed, inlet works, pipework and landscaping.

    A further concrete works contract, being partially undertaken by FormAction, and an underground pipework contract have since been awarded.

    Ertech’s initial contract included all civil and landscaping works, including the removal of all old services and pavement layers and reinstatement. Ertech developed many innovative techniques to coordinate the relocation of existing services and replacement with new services in a built up and congested environment.

    Following success with Stages 1 and 2 of the redevelopment, Ertech is now undertaking further work involving the realignment of major roads and infrastructure to enhance the region’s amenities.

    YulE SourcE upGrADE Ertech was awarded a contract with the Water Corporation for upgrades to the water supply pipeline from the Yule borefield to South Hedland.

    There has been an increasing demand for potable water in South Hedland, Port Hedland and Wedgefield as a result of increased mining and port activities. As such, the Water Corporation is upgrading the 40-year old Yule Supply Main distribution system.

    Ertech’s contract is for the replacement of 26km of existing supply main from Yule to South Hedland and upgrading the existing distribution system to Port Hedland. This contract win complements existing projects for the Pilbara Clearwater Alliance and expands Ertech’s portfolio of water infrastructure projects in the region.

    continuED SuccESS with lAnDcorpThe Gap Ridge Industrial Estate is a LandCorp project being constructed in eight stages over six years. The development will deliver 108 lots over 260ha for general and light industry.

    Ertech was awarded its first contract for the project in August 2012, with additional works awarded in September and November. As part of the Stage 2, 3 and 4 subdivision works, Ertech created new roads and undertook earthworks for the development of a number lots, providing plant and people, as well as water (including recycled), sewer, power, stormwater drainage and communications services.

    In April 2013, Ertech was awarded with further works for the Road Train Assembly Area. These works included roadbase, priming, sealing, kerbing and electrical lighting and switchboards.

    Ertech has received ongoing positive feedback from LandCorp for our work at this project, a real testament to the quality of our project teams.

    Ertech’s Eastern Division has secured its fourth and fifth contract with the Barwon Water Alliance (comprising Barwon Water, GHD and John Holland), moving from strength to strength in the water infrastructure sector. Ertech has been openly recognised by the Alliance as one of its most professional and capable contractors and our continued relationship is a testament to the high quality of work undertaken by our Eastern Division.

    The Apollo Bay contract in south-western Victoria involves more than 250,000m3

    of earthworks, onsite treatment of acid sulphate soils, replacement of 250mm AC water main, a 5m deep sand-filled cut off drain to manage the underground water flows, a 40m long steel outlet walkway with floating offtake, a concrete boat ramp, concrete inlet and outlet structures, concrete ring beam for anchoring HDPE liner and access roads.

    The existing pump station on Barham River Road will also be replaced, and will transfer water from the Barham River to the new water storage basin. Ertech will have the opportunity to provide innovative ideas for the successful completion of this part of the works.

    The contract for the Torquay Recycled Water Winter Storages project is part of a larger program being undertaken by Barwon to deliver recycled water to 3000 new homes in north Torquay, 20km south of Geelong. As a part of the Torquay Recycled Water Scheme, this project will involve the rehabilitation, lining and covering of an existing sludge lagoon at the Black Rock Water Reclamation Plant, converting them to reverse osmosis permeate Winter Storages. The storages will be used for seasonal balancing of Class A and Class C recycled water demands.

    Ertech’s scope of works for the project includes excavation and removal of unsuitable materials, demolition of existing structures and pipework, embankment rehabilitation earthworks, and the supply and installation of PVC, HDPE, GRP and stainless steel pipework. Ertech will also undertake the construction of structures, including concrete ring beam and sealed pavement, and supply and install a HDPE liner and cover, and a butterfly valve and actuator.

    International School of Western Australia in City Beach. The works involved concrete repair, installation of a cathodic protection

    system and coatings application throughout the school.

    Works at the school last year identified that the pre-cast gutter elements would need to either be replaced

    or repaired with a cathodic protection system. While the works were commenced in time to take advantage of the school holidays, Duratec remained on site when the children returned to classes, undertaking all noisy works on weekends.

    Prior to core drilling and installing the 12,480 anodes, micro cover meters were used to identify

    where the reinforcement bars were located. However, the location of the bars was not reflected in the original

    construction drawings, which increased the challenge and degree of difficulty of the repair.

    cruShEr rEpAirS At kcGMDuratec put its considerable concrete repair experience to use in refurbishing degraded concrete areas of Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines’ primary crusher and tunnel.

    Duratec carried out more than 164m2 of repairs, including installing extensive scaffolding to safely access the work areas. The degraded concrete was removed through a combination of jackhammering and hydro-demolition. The exposed reinforcement bars were inspected and checked for integrity and replaced where required, and the reinforcement was then abrasive blasted and coated with a zinc primer to further inhibit corrosion. The repair areas were delineated and pre-soaked with potable water prior to the reinstatement of the concrete, which consisted of dry mix gunite and micro concrete pours.

    Duratec managed the entire project and all associated sub-contractors, including scaffolders, boilermakers, crane lifts and electricians who relocated services to enable access to the repair areas. We completed all works safely and to a high quality while the plant remained in full operation and, as a result, the scope has been extended with additional work continuing.

    After an initial survey of the storage facility, all identified damaged concrete areas were removed by manual breakout using jackhammers. The pH was continually checked to ensure no previously contaminated concrete remained. The walls were then reinstated by form and pour method, while the floor areas were patch repaired with a concrete mortar. In preparation for the protective coating, all surfaces were diamond cup grinded, to clean and profile the concrete.

    A specialised high build, solventless, novalac-based resin coating system was applied by roller to the surface to provide the chemical resistance required in this area. Also included in the contract was baseplate grouting to column supports. The rejuvenated storage sheds will now be fully protected from further chemical attack for many years to come.

    The students attend the academy throughout the school year, gaining valuable experience from qualified Polytechnic West, Ertech and FormAction trainers and supervisors, while still attending high school and completing their WA Certificate of Education.

    Year 12 students from Alta, Cyril Jackson Senior High School, Irene McCormack Catholic College, Ballajura Community College, Mindarie Senior College, St Stephen’s College (Carramar) and Lockridge Senior High have returned to the Ertech Construction Academy in 2013, following a successful year 11 program in 2012.

    They will attend the academy two days per week in order to complete the Certificate II in Civil Construction.

    These trainees now have a good amount of experience under their belts and are being introduced to new safety and site operations procedures to ensure they are well equipped to move into employment upon graduation.

    The year 12 students were recently involved in a project developing concrete crash barriers for the Northam Motor Racing Club. The students, under the instruction of FormAction tradesmen, cast 52 barriers, each weighing just over 1 tonne. This project was a great success and the students took pride in producing materials that could be used in ‘real world’ situations.

    Meanwhile, the interview process has been completed for the year 11 students who have now commenced at the academy one day per week.

    The successful year 11 students are from Duncraig Senior High School, Irene McCormack Catholic College, Belridge Senior High School and Clontarf Aboriginal College. Should these students successfully demonstrate their commitment and capability, they will be invited to continue the program through year 12, to complete their qualification.
