Cavpower Project, Adelaide SA  

Structural Design Lead Engineer

Cavill Power Maintenance and Dyno Testing Facility, Grand Junction Rd Gepps Cross. The design aspects for this project included 32 tonne overhead gantry cranes, 10 tonne jib cranes, 40 tonne axle load forklifts and two truck engine dynos with large torque loads; 

  • Structural design of structures with large loads and vibrations. 

  • Structure supported many overhead and jib cranes. 

  • Large loading to concrete slabs.

It was important to ensure that the movement and deflections were kept to a tight specification for large dyno and crane loads.

Tan Burrup Ammonia Nitrate Bulk Storage Facility, Burrup Peninsula WA 

Structural Design Lead Engineer 

The design of a large 48 metre clear span building with 15 metre eaves in a D cyclonic wind region (the highest cyclonic wind speed requirements in Australia):

  • Structural design of large span structures. 

  • Large spans with large wind loads. 

  • The coating systems for the steel structure in the open bulk ammonia nitrate environment. 

Due to the cyclonic rating there were extremely large uplift loads for the project. A footing system was designed which included the design and testing of rock anchors to greatly reduce the required rock excavation for footings.
