Paragon Consulting Engineers Pty Ltd has provided structural inspection services to falsework for a significant rail project in the Bowen Basin. The inspections included certification of the entire formwork structure prior to concrete loading and laying of reinforcement.
Commercial & Industrial Buildings
PCE has extensive engineering experience with commercial and industrial buildings throughout the Mackay Region & the Mining Sector.
One of our more recent projects is a new fuel station and fast-food restaurant in Walkerston, constructed from a combination of concrete tilt-up panel walls and steel framing.
The structural team at PCE collaborated with the client and sub-contractors to deliver a cost-effective design that achieves the desired outcomes for the project.
Structural Wind Rating Certification
The structural reliability of large equipment is important for everyone’s safety. PCE has worked with local technical specialists and provided structural wind rating certification for various lighting equipment supplied to both the commercial and mining sectors.
Slab and Footing Inspections
New legislation in the building industry requiring engineers to undertake inspections of all residential slab and footings has resulted in a significant increase of structural inspections of this type. PCE provides inspections in accordance with certified plans, onsite advice and Form 16 certification to various Builders in the Mackay Region.
Seaforth State School Multi-Purpose Structure
Paragon was engaged by The Department of Housing and Public Works to design a functional and cost-effective new multi-purpose shade structure, to be utilized by the staff and students at Seaforth State School.
Our structural team worked closely with the client to ensure their requirements were achieved and a design concept produced, that incorporated the new steel structure into the existing landscape and building layout.
