WGE were commissioned by SCT Logistics and DZine Construction Group for the design of the new SCT Logistics intermodal rail freight logistics centre. SCT logistics are Australia’s largest private rail freight operator operating facilities in nine locations across five states. The new facility sits within the Bromelton State Development Area south west of Brisbane. The site has direct access to the Brisbane-Sydney-Melbourne mainline controlled by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC).
The project involved:
WGE’s involvement included:
Due to the client’s schedule the construction timeframe was very tight. The planning approval was lodged in December 2015 and approved in June 2016. Construction commenced in June 2016 and the first train arrived as scheduled in January 2017 just seven months later.
Due to the time constraints, construction and design were commenced concurrently. The construction contractor initially commenced bulk earthworks using digital models while drawings were prepared. This allowed significant progress of the bulk earthworks while the remaining design continued.
