Heavy & Light Industrial Projects

 

We support clients on civil and structural engineering assignments related to light & heavy industry.

Take a look at some of our work below.

 

CHEMICAL PLANT TANK BUNDED AREA & TOWER

This project involved structural engineering design and documentation of a greenfield project for a chemical manufacturing plant.

Initial design options were provided in Revit for review with the client prior to undertaking detailed design.

Savings were realised by adopting a one way monolithic slab approach, which simplified the foundation design and construction, and also by designing custom stainless steel pipe support purlins, folded from SS strip instead of standard SS channel sections, as a more cost effective solution.


Electrical Substation Buildings

Our significant involvement with this project as a sub-contractor to the fabricator included structural engineering design and documentation of five different electrical buildings.

Of note are the through-roof lifting points which allowed us to reduce the floor framing member sizes by providing mid-span support with temporary lift posts during lifting, and also a reduction in lifting beam complexity.

The walls are from cold formed steel sections, the properties of which were determined and applied to the design for bending and raking resistance.


HOPPER MODIFICATIONS

This small project involved engineering and documentation of modifications and refurbishment to an existing ship-unloading hopper.

Modifications included installing angled hopper sideboards so that a larger grab could be accommodated, and installing leg splices to allow hopper dis-assembly and road transportation.


SOLAR TRACKER

This project involved engineering and documentation for the structural support system for a moving array of solar panels.

By following the sun's trajectory across the sky, the solar tracker achieves a far greater average power output per day than equivalent static solar arrays. The solar tracker features a safety position which it can automatically move to, at a pre-set wind speed.
