Inertia’s First Major Industrial Project In WA

Inertia’s Principal Civil Engineer Calvin Kirk is leading Inertia’s first major project in Western Australia as we assist with the civil design of a new truck centre depot and new industrial road in Perth’s south-east. Located in the Forrestfield Industrial Area, we are working with our client RSA on the design of a 400m access road and internal depot design that will link the truck centre to the industrial park.

Calvin is delighted to be championing his first project in the west since relocating to Queensland. “I spent a long time in WA so it’s great to be re-applying that skill set with some great guys over in WA. This project is an excellent way to establish Inertia’s credential in the market as we bring our commitment, creativity and passion that has led to great success in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. I know the guys at RSA really well and it is a pleasure to be doing business with them from the East Coast. I particularly like what they are doing with this site out in Forrestfield’s Industrial Area.”

“The project itself is located in Kalamunda, around 15km south-east Perth and bordering the airport, so as an industrial park and logistics hub it is a site with huge potential. One of the key challenges with this project is to do with infiltration and reassessing the stormwater storage volumes which is a key factor within the City of Kalamunda.”

With approval due imminently from Kalamunda Council, the project is estimated for completion in mid-2020.
