Works Description

Construction of Roma’s Hangar & Patient Transfer, Charleville Base, Hangar, Patient Transfer, Staff Accomodation and the Interpretive Centre.

Lanskey worked in close collaboration with the architects, DM2architecture, and the client to construct in a lapped construction exercise, the new bases at both Charleville and Roma, replacing the existing 1940’s buildings. The project was awarded an architectural commendation.

The new Roma Hangar and Patient Transfer facility allows the RFDS to manage 200+ annual patient transfers whilst the new undercover facilities are an excellent asset for aircraft and crew. The new Charleville facility is multi-functional: allowing RFDS to provide its medical support to rural Queensland whilst acting as a prominent tourist icon with the new adjoining interpretative centre being built to enhance the tourism platform.

Where possible, local suppliers and sub-contractors were utilised. This is a-part of Lanskeys ongoing commitment to supporting the local community. This also has added benefits to the continual maintenance process, particularly in these remote locations of Australia.
