ECHO Company Precinct
Five buildings make up the Echo Company facility, a 360-bed accommodation facility, including office, laundry facilities, parade grounds and armories at Blamey Barracks, Kapooka. The buildings comprise reinforced concrete structure with brick façade and metal roof deck. In fact, over 275,000 bricks went into the Echo Company accommodation and administration facilities. Internally, partitioning is fire rated, insulated, impact resistant plasterboard. This project was one of the 11 stages of works that made up the $90M Enhanced Land Force Stage 1 Kapooka project completed by Joss Construction in Joint Venture with partner John Holland and was awarded an MBA NSW 2012 Excellence in Construction award for Best Use of Bricks.
