Rockhampton Precast Plant Upgrade, Qld.
Holcim Australia will upgrade its Humes pipe and precast manufacturing facility in Rockhampton. The upgrade is in response to Central Queensland market demand and a commitment to the Australian Industry Participation (AIP) plan, a concept under the Australian Industry Participation National Framework principles.
The upgrade will also enhance safety standards, remove lifting capacity constraints and reduce external truck movements. The upgrade will include; a 50m x 25m undercover manufacturing shed, two 50 tonne overhead gantry cranes with 90m travel distance and 25m span; a suspended “flying bucket” concrete delivery system fully integrated into the new concrete batching plant; and a new concrete batch plant capable of producing leading edge self-compacting concrete.
Rooty Hill Regional Distribution Centre, NSW
The proposed Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) at Rooty Hill will consist of a rail siding where construction materials from quarries are unloaded from trains and transported to enclosed storage bins by conveyor belt.
The materials will be sorted and blended as required by the customer, then loaded into trucks, which carry them to construction sites and concrete plants around Sydney.
