45 working days to completion. 

Scope of Works

To supply and install 2,100m of High Security Palisade fencing and 8 x 12m opening, bi-parting, automated, cantilever sliding gates. The project was unique in that the coating system was required to withstand the harsh coastal conditions of Binningup and achieve a life expectancy of 25 years. Southern Wire’s engineering team were heavily involved in the design of the coating which included Hot Dip Galvanising, Etch Priming and heavy duty Powder Coating which far exceeded AS4506-2005.

Client Comment

“Southern Wire was engaged initially by the Southern Seawater Joint Venture (SSJV) to supply & install the original site boundary fence at the original establishment of the project (2009). In the major construction phase of the Project, Southern Wire successfully tendered and were awarded a contract to construct approximately 2.1 kilometres of palisade fencing including installation of several associated secure vehicle access and personnel access gates. 

Following the award of Expansion Project works to SSJV, Southern Wire further collaborated with SSJV to store a significant amount of materials at their premises for safe keeping which will in the near future be installed with a likely additional 50% increase in the original awarded quantities. 

SSJV acknowledge Southern Wire’s commitment to the overall Project outcome including by meeting or exceeding numerous Stakeholder requirements related to schedule, engineering and quality, safe working practices and ensuring minimal environmental impact. This result has been achieved through sustained management practices including regular and punctual meeting attendance and a demonstrated willingness to fulfil our Client’s stringent durability requirements – a challenge not previously encountered by Southern Wire.”
