Worlsey Project

This project increased the capacity of the Worsley refinery from 3.5 million tonnes per annum of alumina to 4.6 million tonnes through expanded mining operations, additional refinery capacity and upgraded port facilities. Frankipile was responsible for both the design and construction of the foundation scheme, installing in excess of 700 CFA and precast piles.

Hamilton Harbour Project

The development is a mixture of commercial, retail and residential with four towers and a four level basement car park. Foundation piles were a combination of driven precast and CFA piles.

The basement secant pile wall consisted of over 500 piles drilled to depths of up to 30m. Cased CFA piling techniques were used for the first time in Australia to ensure pile alignment.

Brisbane Airport Carpark Project

The car park was one part of a significant upgrade of the Brisbane Domestic Terminal, providing 5,300 undercover car spaces across nine levels, state-of-the-art way-finding technology, and innovative safety and security measures. The building features an eight level kinetic public art installation consisting of 250,000 rotating aluminium panels.

Frankipile Australia installed over 1,000 driven precast concrete piles to support this new structure.

Kurv Apartments

Kurv Apartments Project

The building is a seven level mixed use development containing residential, commercial and retail spaces with a two level basement car park.

Frankipile installed approximately 300 continuous flight auger (CFA) piles forming 150 plan metres of secant pile retaining wall. Frankipile engineers designed wall with ground level propping off the capping beam which completely eliminated the need for ground anchors.

Marine Supply Base

Marine Supply Base Project

The $110 million marine supply base will be built on 8.55 hectares of currently vacant land adjacent to East Arm Wharf and will play an important role in cementing Darwin’s position as a major oil and gas hub. Frankipile installed over 400 steel tubes (up to 1450mm diameter) which were clutched together to form the wharf’s sea wall. The piles were driven to depth with pre-boring and internal relief drilling.

Revolution Apartments

Revolution Apartments Project

The development comprises a seven level building underlain by a two level basement car park. The significant challenge for this project was the design and construction of a contiguous pile cantilevered retaining wall adjacent to the existing railway line that had to meet Railcorp’s strict settlement and movement limits without the use of ground anchors.

Frankipile installed over 540 piles in sizes ranging from 450mm up to 900mm diameter. The piles were installed using both continuous flight auger (CFA) and conventional bored pile techniques.

Prima Pearl

Prima Pearl Project

The structure is an oval-shaped residential tower featuring 72 levels, including a ground level commercial space. Upon completion, the building will stand at 254 metres high; making it the fourth tallest building in Melbourne, and the fifth tallest in Australia.

Frankipile designed and constructed 22No 1800mm diameter bored piles approximately 40m long and 56No continuous flight auger (CFA) piles 750mm, 1050mm and 1200mm diameter approximately 35m long. Frankipile also constructed 150No 600mm diameter secant hard/soft wall piles using the CFA piling method to depths of 15–21m.
