Project Details

The development comprised:

  • New Administration Building
  • New Warehouse Building
  • Covered Vehicle Storage Area
  • Vehicle Wash Bay
  • Transformer and materials storage bays

Challenge Faced / Engineering Problem Solved:

  • Existence of un-mapped mine workings required detailed assessment
  • Variable founding conditions and large mine subsidence ground strains required sliding bearing pads and compressible material around footings
  • Design of the public road connection to the Weakleys Drive roundabout required modelling of manoeuvring paths of 30m long “Jinker” trucks, coordination with the RMS to ensure their road safety requirements were satisfied

Safe Strong Stable Solution

Construction systems used included:

  • Building supported on concrete bored piers
  • Reinforced concrete ground slabs and footings
  • Structural steel framed walls and roof

Engineering Design Services / Reviews

  • Earthquake and wind modelling, analysis and design
  • Ground slab and footing engineering design on sliding bearing pads to satisfy mine subsidence design requirements
  • Structural steel column and wall analysis and engineering design
  • Suspended mezzanine structural steel beams and floor joist engineering analysis and design
  • Structural steel roof rafters, purlins and awning framing analysis and engineering design
  • Civil earthworks and roadworks to satisfy RMS and council
  • Civil Stormwater pipe and pit modelling, analysis and design using DRAINS software
  • Stormwater water quality modelling using MUSIC software, and design of Gross Pollutant Traps and Bio retention Basin
  • Sediment and Erosion Control Design
