The Aviation Rescue and Fire Fighting Service (ARFFS) provide air traffic management, navigation support, aviation rescue and, fire-fighting services to the aviation industry. Coffs Harbour Gateway Airport has experienced steady growth in passenger numbers resulting in a much needed expansion.


Due to the site complexity McVeigh and St Hilliers worked together to conduct early master-planning exercises to ensure that the preliminary designs were aligned with ARFFS requirements and project expectations.


McVeigh used real time visual analysis 3D modelling software to demonstrate the accuracy of the preliminary studies resulting in clarity and transparency to ARFFS throughout the design process.
