“CHALLIS VENTURE” - Offshore & Marine Living Quarters

Client Logo
CLIENT: BHP Petroleum
Date: 1989
Location: Nagoya, Japan

“Challis Venture” is a “new build” barge which is operated as a permanently moored non powered FPSO.

Jackson Lane Pty Ltd was responsible for the conceptual design of crew accommodation spaces which are located aft and partially below main deck. The accommodation block layout was constrained by a limited footprint area and the need to restrict overall height and wind resistance. Accommodation layouts were further developed in conjunction with the shipyard designers and all detail design drawings were subject to our review and approval.

Jackson Lane Pty Ltd was responsible for preparation of interior design and furniture procurement and in addition for the approval of shipyard subcontractors and equipment vendors’ design documents.

The crew accommodation and central control room were fitted out to a high standard acceptable to both the owner, the maritime unions and the certifying authority, Lloyds Register. A helideck suitable for Bell 214 ST helicopters was provided. Personnel were seconded to the BHP Petroleum topsides design group for the duration of the design work and were directly responsible for all matters relating to the accommodation. Construction supervision and support services were provided at the IHI Shipyard in Nagoya, Japan.
