QR National Rail Infrastructure
T&Z Architects has been engaged by QR National, Australia’s largest railway freight operator, as their lead consultant for QRN’s expansion into the WA Iron Ore market. Since 2010 T&Z has successfully delivered two major rail infrastructure projects at Esperance and Narngulu (Geraldton). The Locomotive Service Facilities developed for the mid-west project are required to support the new fleet of 4100 series locomotives transporting Iron Ore to the Geraldton Port for KML. The workshop comprises 1800m2 of specialised service environment designed specifically to suit the heavy lifting and fluid delivery requirements of the locomotive industry. Project Director, James urnbull researched the current ‘best practice’ models for railway engineering workshops. Through intensive dialogue with QRN staff a brief was established and Detailed Design Commenced. The project was first delivered in fit for purpose order in just 14 months from initial briefing to client handover. David Welsh, Vice President of Iron Ore, has commented on delivering this incredibly tight time frame as, that; “The high safety, timely delivery and on budget results are a testament to the quality of the team of design consultants and construction sub-contractors” The projects incorporate many specialist pieces of equipment designed and built into the facility. These include a locomotive turntable and a drop pit designed to remove the wheels from a locomotive from below thus avoiding the need to hoist a 200 tonne locomotives and the associated impost on structural design of columns and crane beams. The trip service facility is capable of delivery 400 litres per minute of diesel to each of the 3 new 4100 series locomotives which power a consist of 100 wagons. Each of the 4 consists currently allocated to the KML contract, are reprovisioned with fuel, coolant, oil and traction sand during each trip from the mine site to the port. T&Z Architects have a demonstrated capability to research the particular requirements of a specialist industry and provide design solutions to suit that engineering environment.
