The main assembly building at the Australian Naval Infrastructure (ANI) is 200 metres long, 90 metres wide and 50 metres high. This presented significant challenges for the erection of the shed that are magnified by its size. Robert Bird Group (RBG) and Lend Lease (LLL) developed an erection methodology. This reduced the need to work from heights and maintained the sheds stability throughout the erection procedure. The walls were preassembled at ground level and rotated in place and then the roof was assembled at ground level and then jacked into place.
