Inertian Insight – October Edition
OUR PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS
GPS Rugby & Valleys Cricket Clubhouse
This $3.4 million GPS Rugby & Valleys Cricket Clubhouse project is a complete refurbishment of the existing clubhouse building, featuring a new glazed entrance structure. Existing administration buildings were demolished to make space for new staff and merchandise offices, as well as new gym facilities to service the club.
The revamp of the existing clubhouse building posed a few design challenges. The new structure has a roof that sits at 6.7 metres tall, which meant essentially cutting out the middle of the building which sits at 3 metres tall. Due to the large open spans and the new walls extending higher than the existing building, portal frames have been designed to provide lateral bracing.
Beachside, Hervey Bay
Situated fronting Dundowran Beach in Hervey Bay, the Beachside development is a 250-hectare masterplanned community set to contain over 1,500 residential lots. This coastline development is set to be delivered over 50 stages.
We are pleased to be providing civil and flood consulting for our client QM Properties, including a master earthworks strategy, flooding and stormwater management, water network analysis, trunk watermain design and road and intersection upgrades.
BACK AT HQ
Fresh-faced and ready to mo! Throughout the month of November, we will be raising funds and awareness for men’s health issues as part of the Movember movement.
To push our fundraising a little bit further, over 40 Inertians have joined the 60 km MOVE-mber challenge.
That’s 60 km for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.
Men are dying too young and we can’t afford to stay silent. We are doing this for our extended Inertian family; the brothers, fathers, partners, sons and mates in our lives.
We surpassed our fundraising target in the first week, so we’ve increased our goal to $6,000 – let’s smash it!
Meet our Associates – Jodie Egan
Introducing Jodie Egan, our Associate and Housing Drafting Lead.
“I ended up in structural drafting by accident; I didn’t know it existed when I was doing work experience. After high school, I just stumbled upon an ad for a structural drafting apprenticeship. Yes, it was an apprenticeship, like a plumber or a sparkie!” said Jodie.
Having ticked over the decade milestone this year, Jodie has long been an important part of the Inertia journey.
“In January 2012, my husband and I relocated to Brisbane, where I met with Scott and Dave and was introduced to Inertia. I had experience working for small companies and helping build their teams, so I saw that potential immediately. When I arrived, we were a team of five people, and all but one is still a part of the team today.”
