Hutchinson Builders appointed Codicote to provide Construction Advice and Construction Planning services, including staging, methodology and logistics for their complex tender to Little Group on their new Melbourne Corporate Jet Base at Tullamarine.
The acquisition of the existing MAP (Melbourne Aviation Precinct) facility in 2014 was focused on ushering in a new era of exciting aviation / airport developments. The construction of an Executive Jet Base at the MAP site was Australia’s first purpose-built, world-class private jet facility, visualised as the gateway into Melbourne for VIP travellers.
MAP is an aviation business park located at Melbourne Airport, offering a variety of services to businesses in the aviation sector, including aircraft hangar and apron parking, offices, workshop and warehouse facilities, and ancillary services such as the supply of support equipment and fuel.
Little Group’s goal was to provide the ideal environment from which businesses in aviation may operate and flourish through their professional and attentive customer service, providing opportunity to utilise their purpose-built facilities and the proximity of the site in relation to Melbourne Airport. Paramount to Little Group operational ethos is to ensure the safety of all customers given the facility is subject to strict security measures. Security Officers are posted on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Codicote was delighted to assist Hutchinson Builders in winning the project through adoption of our innovative building smarts, construction advice and construction planning services. Our ongoing client relationship continues on other strategic building opportunities for their key clients.
