About This Project

Snow Planet incorporates a 200 metre long by 40 metre wide temperature controlled building. With a slope of 1:4 at the top, ticketing facilities, equipment hire, changing rooms, restaurant, bar and corporate areas.

Arrow was involved for 22 months overall in aspects of project and business planning, and operational implementation in a project and construction management role culminating in the delivery of the project.

 

Unique Aspects

The project was constructed on a 30% grade mudstone and clay hillside that required stabilising with the removal of 40,000 cubic metres of material to enable 25 tonne mobile cranes to lift the portal frames and structural steel into place. Construction and handover was completed one week ahead of the agreed nine month construction programme.
