PROJECT NOTES

18,000m2 floor area and 35m high housing an enclosed ridge conveyor is an engineering feat anywhere in the world. For Peritas this was a significant project which not only proves our industrial design capability but enhances our reputation through the success of the mechanical interface. The structure was built over less than favourable soils which were expected to consolidate over time. As a result, our engineers built in structural contingencies to allow for the movement.
