Anyone who has driven the Northern Distributor around Orange NSW will no doubt have seen the highly impressive transport hub of Ron Finemore. The distinctive building and immaculate red fleet is difficult to miss in this bustling industrial centre.

Built in 2011 and located in the ideal position to service NSW regionally and interstate, Wallandra was the local fabricator trusted to deliver the structural steel.

The site location was subject to plunging winter temperature and the occasional snow however the snow loading wasn’t factored in to the design. Working closely with Builder ArtTec building the design department of Wallandra were able to adjust the design to allow for the appropriate snow loading in the most cost effective manner for the end client.

With the updated design complete Wallandra was able to successfully supply and erect the 95 tonne of structural steel within 4 weeks.

Resource Recovery Centre

The Resource Recover Centre presented many challenges for Wallandra, such as height, wide doorways, stepped and raised platforms, a corrosive environment, push walls for heavy machinery and the integration of equipment. Wallandra provided a design and construction solution for the footings, structure and 300mm precast walls, including the development of a unique steel restraining system for these heavily loaded precast, push walls.

Wallandra’s scope also included roofing and roof plumbing, delivering the complete building envelope, and a hassle free, risk free solution for the builder.
