Collaborating to empower the next generation of industry trailblazers.
What a day! We were lucky to be joined by 70 students from UTS for a site tour of our Woolworths Moorebank Regional Distribution Centre (MoRDC) project.
Craig Barry, Director at CKB Projects & Consulting Pty Ltd and Lecturer for UTS’ School of Built Environment, shared his feedback on the event, “RCC’s team organised such an engaging presentation and site tour. The students could not believe the scale and complexity of the project and felt incredibly lucky to observe such a feat. RCC’s team were also incredibly generous with their time coordinating access and parking on site so students could safely travel to the site by car. Thank you RCC!”
This tour gave students the chance to join RCC’s team of multidisciplinary professionals and see theoretical concepts actualised in a real, three-dimensional space. The processes and mechanisms involved in construction are complex – site visits help show how they all come together in the built environment.
Hai Pham and David Li, Site Engineers, greeted students at the state-of-the-art warehouse facility, before discussing challenges and solutions that engineers and contractors manage onsite. It was a great opportunity for the RCC team to share their knowledge and explain how their expertise can be applied in real life.
Once complete, the 71,790m2 automated warehouse facility will deliver truck wash and maintenance facilities, MHE and battery charging facilities, a main office, staff canteen, transport office, driver amenities and gate house.
In addition to this, we will deliver an interconnecting conveyor and pedestrian airbridge connecting MoRDC to the National Woolworths Distribution Centre (MoNDC) – which is being delivered concurrently by RCC’s Industrial division. Once complete both MoRDC and MoNDC will cover an 85,000m2 area, which is equivalent to five SCG ovals!
We’re proud to collaborate with universities across the nation – working together to support the bright young minds that will, no doubt, make their mark on the construction and property industries.
