We are proud to have been working with Todd Wanless and Brett Crosby from Raw Metal Corp on the civil and structural engineering design and inspection requirements of their multi-million-dollar scrap metal yard upgrade in Wacol. This amazing project included the installation of a European-made hammer mill shredder machine that aims to extract as much metal as possible from the recycling process.
Mr Wanless explains the decision for the new machinery came after the State Government announced a new waste levy. However not only is it saving money, but it is also a big step for Australia towards more sustainable waste management solutions. Having worked on three other scrap yard upgrades in the Past, Inertia’s Civil Engineering Principal Calvin Kirk was equipped to handle the challenges they come with. For this project, the challenge was working on the foundation, slabs and stormwater designs all within an operational brownfield site. Mr Wanless and Mr Crosby also kept us honest with a requirement to produce fast results in an ever-changing site environment.
At Inertia Engineering, we love working on projects that are outside the box and relished seeing Raw Metal Corp produce an improved facility that assists with reduction of waste going to the tip.
