Edinburgh Runway Extension - - Maritime Patrol Aircraft Replacement Project (AIR7000)

Client                         
Aurecon for RAAF (2014 – 2016)

GTP Role                   
AIR 7000 Phase 2B required the delivery of infrastructure and airfield works for the introduction of the Boeing P-8A Poseidon aircraft to several RAAF bases including the RAAF Base at Edinburgh, South Australia. The proposed facilities included administration, operations, simulation and training, maintenance hangars and workshops to conduct operational level maintenance, aircraft pavements, aircraft rinse facilities, explosive ordnance facilities and associated engineering services. Our role was to undertake a range of community engagement activities to provide information and seek feedback from the community regarding the proposed new and upgraded facilities to inform government decision making.

Outcome                   
We conducted a successful communication and engagement program via key stakeholder briefings, door knocking of local communities around Edinburgh and two public information sessions.
