Hanwha Armoured Vehicle Centre of Excellence (H-ACE)
Client: Hanwha Defence Australia (HDA)
Architect: Design Inc
Completion date: July 2024
“Built is proud to be selected by HDA and Conscia to construct the H-ACE facility which will deliver huge economic benefits and jobs for the local community. We’re excited to combine our local experience and relationships in Geelong, together with the specialist knowledge of our national Defence team to deliver a world-class manufacturing facility.
Brett Mason, Built Managing Director and CEO
It is estimated that over 100 jobs will be created during construction of the facility, which will ultimately support a large, long-term set of advanced manufacturing jobs when completed. Moreover, local subcontractors have been awarded trade packages throughout the construction period.
Throughout the design phase, we have utilised our inhouse digital engineering capabilities to plan the most efficient and effective design and buildability solutions before the project takes physical form.
“We look forward to working with Built to develop a true ecosystem of Australian owned companies delivering a successful project and supporting the future of sovereign manufacturing in Australia.”
Brendan Bilston, Executive Director of Conscia.
