Cavpower’s Service Operations Centre in South Australia is helping the official Caterpillar dealer service customers in the mining, construction, energy and transportation sectors.
Partnering with Ahrens, Cavpower was able to see this $20 million facility brought to life, with Ahrens’ work allowing Cavpower to more efficiently distribute, maintain and repair Caterpillar equipment such as new and used machines, work tools and power systems.
Drawing on a complete range of in-house capabilities and their own structural steel fabrication, Ahrens worked alongside Cavpower to deliver a variety of works that spanned across two levels.
Ahrens’ work on the specialised workshop for Cavpower comprised of 26 bays which are fitted with heavy duty overhead cranes, ranging from 12.5 to 25 tonne in capacity for large off-highway Caterpillar trucks and dozers.
Catering for Cavpower’s bespoke design requests, Ahrens also completed an additional mezzanine fit-out to house a first-rate training facility for the client’s apprenticeship and upskilling programs, training technicians entering the industry and developing new skills for future technologies.
In order to aid in the relocation of key components of the Cavpower business from Enfield to the new headquarters in Gepps Cross, Ahrens have been developing multiple facilities on the site over several years and have completed over 1000 sqm worth of work.
This includes construction of Cavpower’s world-class Component Rebuild Centre and its recent extension providing a stand-out laboratory, store room, open plan office, meeting rooms and all associated modern amenities.
Cavpower’s partnership with Ahrens has ensured their ‘world class standard’ is met, safeguarding their facilities for both current and future generations.
