Our Perth office was engaged to complete a bulk earthworks and drainage design for CBH Group’s Kellerberrin grain receival, storage and transfer facility in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia.

CBH Group required detailed design for an additional 120,000 tonnes in open bulkhead grain storage capacity and the installation of a new 500 tonnes per hour e-pit and CLS system. They were also looking to resolve the insufficient grain storage capacity at Kellerberrin due to the projected increases in harvest volumes and to improve the operational efficiency of the site.

The site was located on a relatively flat slope which made draining the site challenging. Other challenges included accommodating additional scope changes such as the pavement surfacing, drainage system upgrades and concrete slab set-out revisions.

Some of the design changes were requested during the construction phase and therefore were completed in very short time frames. To achieve this we supplied 3D models for construction as opposed to drawings.

Engenium provided a positive project outcome with value engineering resulting in cost savings for CBH Group.
