icubed and Wagners Team Up To Deliver New Batch Plants Across South-East Queensland
Concrete, it’s everywhere, it’s on your streets, in your homes, offices, high rise apartments, backyards and swimming pools. It’s unavoidable and unmissable, but let’s take a step back. Who makes the concrete that makes up such a big part of our society?
Wagners Group and icubed have partnered over the last two years to roll out a series of new batching facilities in South-East Queensland. The premix of materials (including admixtures, sand, aggregate, fly ash, silica fume, slag, and cement) that form concrete come from batching plants. A batching plant site may include cement batchers, aggregate batchers, conveyors, radial stackers, aggregate bins, cement bins, heaters, chillers, cement silos, batch plant controls, and dust collectors.
icubed has been designing and managing the construction of batching plants since our inception. We understand the aggregates, how to grade sites to maximise truck movement operations, minimise batching times and how to maximise rainfall runoff reuse. We utilise our experience with batch plants, from complex town planning to millimetre reinforcement detail, and engage our one-stop-shop business model to value-add wherever and however we can. For the Wagners facilities in particular, despite varied sizes, shapes and council requirements, we were able to standardise a series of design elements to create efficiency and maintain a level of consistency across the sites.
icubed, Wagners and the plant equipment designers, utilised a collaborative approach to deliver these new facilities that will be servicing the south-east Queensland construction industry for years to come.
