The Task
The client sought design and documentation of a generic 3500 tonnes/hour raw coal stacker with the intention of utilising this machine design on sites throughout the world.  This project was of importance to the client in realising their ambition of standardising their coal handling facilities across both their domestic and international operations.

Our Role
The raw and product coal stackers at Ravensworth North were developed within a tight design, procurement and construction master schedule.  As such, the tracking of program and costs was essential, as was the need to maintain flexibility in milestones and deliverables.

In addition to supplying structural design and documentation and general project management of the design phase, Lindsay Dynan provided detailed project programming and cost reporting.  The cost reporting included Earned Value techniques which allowed close examination of time and budget constraints which proved to be invaluable on a project of this scale and urgency.
