From the Director's Desk 
Our experience and expertise in rail infrastructure are things we have worked hard to establish. The majority of our operational staff are SARC qualified to enable them to work on rail projects. Recently we have had teams working on the Tunnel Lowering project at Spring Bluff and Culvert Replacement projects between Roma and Dalby.

Due to our interest in this area and with the Inland Rail firmly on everyone's mind, we are proud to be the major sponsor for the TSBE Extended Enterprise Evening on the 15th November focussing on the Inland Rail. This major project is such an important venture and will bring huge benefits to the region, so we are looking forward to learning more about it through the extra workshops being offered. See you there!

Project:  Gas fields works are gathering momentum

EIM were appointed by Arrow Energy to build a new facility-meter station that tied in with an existing metering station at the Daandine Central Gas Processing Facility near Dalby. Joe Wagner Group was subcontracted by EIM to provide bulk earthworks, concrete skid foundations and ancillary earthworks and construction.

This project was a combination of greenfield and brownfield works under stringent safety conditions as we were working around an existing live gas facility. Part of the schedule involved a shutdown in order to tie in with the existing facility, so keeping to agreed timeframes was important. We completed the job ahead of schedule and with no LTIs. After achieving a quality outcome for our client, they have booked us for further works in the coming months.

Meet Kobus, our Surveyor and Machine Control Technician. Kobus has over 29 years' experience in Civil Construction and Earthmoving extending from his home country of South Africa, to Australia.

What really gets Kobus talking is when you ask him a question about our GPS machine control systems. This is his area of expertise and something he is passionate about.

Kobus ensures that our machines are calibrated to within millimetres of accuracy and he can control the systems remotely.

Kobus regularly attends courses to upgrade his knowledge and skills, and is proficient in AutoCad Civil 3D for the creation of our TIN models for machine control and survey set-out.
 New Plant

We always ensure our plant base is modern and well-maintained, with regular upgrades and expansion to suit our client needs.  Sometimes this expansion means new large plant items, and other times it can be smaller attachments or auxiliary items. 
 
Our most recent purchases have been a mixture of both, with the arrival of a 1000 litre water trailer, a stump grinder, and a 14t Case excavator.

The water trailer has remote controlled sprays that can be operated from the cab, and, as always, the excavator is fitted with industry best 3D GPS machine control systems.

Extreme Engineering: Chenub Railway Bridge
With the Inland Rail on everyone's mind, spare a thought for the enormous workforce in India working on the world's highest railway bridge. It has a span of 359 metres, and is higher than the Eiffel Tower.

You would want to be wearing your safety harness at all times!

Two of our staff members don't only represent us on the worksite, but also on the racetrack.

Ash Kowaltzke, one of our leading hands and grader operator attends race-meets competing in the street-bike class. Peter White, one of our multi-skilled operators extends his driving skills to speedway car racing.

Either way, both men know how to handle whatever machine they are driving safely and according to the conditions they are working with.
