Defence Force Tank Museum

Within the small restricted-access town of Puckapunyal lies the home to the Australian Army.  Defence Force Hobson Barracks engaged THE Shed Company Kilmore for a storage shed for their new Tank Museum.

THE Shed Company Kilmore took this unique project completely out of the Defence Forces’ hands with a full kit supply and management and construction package. Collaborating and communicating with the client throughout the entire process to create their special purpose storage solution.

An eye catching structure, this machinery shed stands strong at, 23 metres by 42 metres by 4.2 metres. An investment to last well into the future, with their structure using Australian cold rolled steel by BlueScope®. Choosing to clad the entire structure in IRONSTONE® from the COLORBOND® steel palette.

A no easy feat as this project required:

  • 3 Phase power upgrade
  • Excavations including a 500mm cut and fill and ground water diversion
  • Collaboration with the Seymour Quarry for toppings for the compact surface of the shed
  • Storm Water Works
  • Site Clean-Up
  • Re-Landscaping of surrounding exterior landscape
  • Electrical works including fitout and 7 high bay LED Lights and 10 exterior GP’s

A structure purpose built and engineered especially to Puckapunyal site conditions, the team added in a brand new cyclonic fence built for the regions extremities. Adding a personal access gate for easy drive in and out access of their military tanks.
