Yarra Trams Malvern Depot

Yarra Trams have become an essential part of the public transport system in Metro Melbourne, and regularly undergo maintenance in their local Tram Depot Maintenance Pit.

Downer EDI assigned FABCON the new Maintenance Pit project at Malvern Tram Depot, which required a full protection railing system, access platforms, stairs and ladders built into the existing heritage building.

FABCON planned the installation so it would not interrupt the Depot operations and schedule. Moving equipment and steel, and carrying out work also required adhering to unique strict standards written by Yarra Trams.

In addition, the team carried out extensive 3D scanning to fit the new to the undocumented heritage building.

The successful completion of project ended without one ding ding of Tram out of place.
