NDY has had an ongoing relationship with Melbourne Airport completing a range of projects including retail, plant upgrades, hanger conversions, capital planning and asset management assessments.

This has provided us a broad exposure to the airport and its operational challenges and a detailed appreciation for the engineering design considerations. Over this period our involvements have had to consider system redundancy levels, plantroom locations, airside vs landside and associated security, and compliance with NFPA requirements.

NDY has recently been involved in completing an upgrade of the services infrastructure tunnels addressing compliance, converting a hanger to a usable office space and assisting Melbourne airport to identify and define the landside/airside demarcations.

For one recent project NDY were engaged to carry out a condition assessment and a 20-year lifecycle analysis of all maintainable critical assets located in Melbourne Airport’s Terminals 2 and 3. APAM required the information to be provided in a format that was compatible with their Maximo asset management software and for capital planning. Using handheld devices preloaded with the asset database and the NDY developed data collection tool, each asset was visually assessed for the following information:

  • Quantity of asset type
  • Asset condition rating
  • Asset type details
  • Location.

NDY used this information for the establishment of prioritized forward maintenance budgets and schedules including programmed capital replacement works for the life of the asset. The lifecycle maintenance capex and renewal program were developed in conjunction with the APAM asset hierarchy format. This information provided the empirical basis for APAM to determine the asset’s baseline performance and plan future asset replacement or renewal in line with the Asset Management Strategy of Terminals 2 and 3 and broader critical assets.
