Building Design Denney Group
The exciting Agrifil Project included a 7,580m2 factory with a 260m2 office and 5200m2 of concrete carpark. The building was designed for a fertiliser manufacturer so the concrete was designed with special chemicals to ensure the chemicals of the fertilisers did not damage the concrete over time. The factory was 60m wide and the trusses were a single span, meaning no columns in the middle of the factory. It was one of the biggest truss spans in WA. No columns in the middle of the factory was required due to the use of large trucks and forklifts in the warehouse.
The project included the install and commission of two water tanks each holding ninety six thousand litres of water. The tanks are connected to the roof and they supply the whole building with water including the garden reticulation system.
Once the tanks get low on water, the system switches over to mains water. This design ensures waste water is minimised and the building is water efficient by utilising the rain water.
The client was able to operate in part of the building while the rest of the building was being completed due to Alita Constructions managing to make part of the building safe to use and organising all the paperwork with the consultants and council in order to get a partial Occupancy Permit.
This Project was completed in approximately 12 months.

Alita constructions were selected to build our facility from a short list of four construction companies 2 years ago. They were easily selected because of their very professional approach to every detail of the very difficult and challenging design and layout of our project. Their “can do” culture within Alita came through very early in our discussions which also included level headed costings and understanding budgetary constraints. The project was undertaken and completed within expected time frames and which also allowed for partial occupation while they very professionally worked around our day to day operations without any issues. This was very much appreciated and marveled. In the eighteen months it took to build this difficult facility it was an absolute pleasure to have been able to talk with any personnel from Alita and discuss queries if and when they manifested. From accounts through to the managing director everybody was accessible and were more than happy to apportion time to talk. Project management was impeccable. Alita built us a beautiful and functional building which we are very proud of and which is much talked about and marveled within the business community. I recommend Alita very highly to any prospective client of theirs who may be considering a building project. I will use Alita again for any projects I may have going forward.
