RAAF Richmond 02 Farm


The O2 Farm project is the construction of 2 buildings, a new Oxygen Breathing Repair Facility and a Liquid Oxygen Storage Facility, and the fit out of intricate mechatronics controls of the environmental conditions within each repair facility.

The buildings were designed and constructed using highly curved structural steel shapes giving the impression of a wing on the ground.

Due to the nature of these facilities, specialized jointing materials were used within the storage bins to resist spilt liquid oxygen.

All works occurred alongside active runways and a Defence buildings including the fuel farm.
