Devastating fire provides an opportunity for improvement

In 2018 a large fire devastated a critical part of our client’s infrastructure. Initial urgent repairs were made to ensure the site was operational, and then we focused on planning a replacement. This multi-discipline project involved partnering with consultants and other contractors. The result was an improved intake system, providing higher levels of safety and performance, from a catastrophe to a great outcome.

Fire, Destruction & Repairs

After the fire, the building required immediate repairs. The damaged conveyor was repaired and weatherproofed, which enabled operations to carry on while planning the new design got underway.

New & Improved

It was a chance to create many improvements in the new design. In collaboration with TM Consultants the concept was developed, and the project specifications were defined.

Multiple Contract Works

This project was split into several major phases to manage the building repairs, seismic strengthening and civil works. Complex crane lifts were required, and the new equipment was installed without incident.
