The soon to be completed Perth Stadium Complex is in the final building phase and the associated Stadium Station Rail Project is well advanced. Lead by FEG's GM Damien Loney, Screwpile Australia has just completed the latest screw piling for the electric overhead rail line catenaries. We were elated to once again be working with the management and construction team at head contractor Laing O'Rourke (LOR) on this world class project. LOR's commitment to providing a construction site that is safe with seamless procedures was appreciated and is to be commended.
For some November 1 doesn’t mean much, but for those in the northern half of Australia it means the start of Cyclone Season. Many are now starting to review their infrastructure needs in preparation as leaving it to chance is a thing of the past.
Screwpile Australia is about to manufacture and install screw piling for a new boardwalk in a eco-sensitive environment. As their certifying design engineers Foundation Engineering Pty Ltd (FE) decided it was timely to look at the more than 20 boardwalks and viewing platform projects they've done since 1996. Installed in a wide range of environments it provide a unique window of opportunity to at look at previous corrosion protection regimes for exposed components.
The first, of what undoubtedly will be numerous, installation of "Ball Sport Safety Net Structures” consisting of 4 x 12m poles with the catch net spanning 30 metres went off without a hitch for the Foundation Engineering Group.
