Public Transport Minister visits Prebuilt.

Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan today visited Prebuilt’s Kilsyth factory where Ginifer and St Albans station buildings are being constructed.

Pre building at an off-site location is an increasingly popular method in Victoria, due to the benefits of building in a controlled environment. A number of train stations in Melbourne have been built this way, including many new stations in the level crossing removal project.

The planning for Ginifer and St Albans stations involved use of 3D modelling where the team constructed all the plans via a ‘digital build’, allowing them to identify any clashes or coordination limitations which can then be resolved before the onsite installation.

Having the modular stations built in a factory will improve quality control and minimise delays from the complex working environment where multiple works are occurring at the same time.
