Materials Handling and Mass Transit

Delivering future-focussed design and advice

Bulk handling and process infrastructure assets form core parts of networks that support our everyday lives. Mining, processing, heavy haul, distribution and port/marine networks are key to economic prosperity and security. Heavy industry assets and infrastructure must be designed to be able to endure extremely harsh environments, to maximise up-time, minimise lifecycle costs and meet sustainability objectives.

Our point of difference:

At our core is a curious resourcefulness and passion for making the complex, simple. Decades of close partnerships with asset owners at various stages in the asset life cycle ensures that design and/or audit projects are successful. Through cross-functional team capabilities and data-driven design solutions, we develop, optimise and sustain bulk handling plant and infrastructure. We are experts in both brownfield and greenfield design projects, from scoping through to detailed design, construction, operations, maintenance and asset management.
