Engineering & Design

At FIELD, we’ve got designs on engineering excellence.

In fact, the bigger the challenge the bigger the smile on our engineers faces, problem solving is what makes us tick and we’re very good at it!!   And we don’t just design, we can also oversee the onsite implementation of our designs so you know your project is in safe hands from start to finish.

Structural Engineering

FIELD Engineering have extensive experience in structural engineering working on both steel, and concrete structures.

We specialise in re-certification of structures and repair and remediation advice. Our pragmatic and detailed approach to inspection and re-certification can identify what’s good, what’s not and what needs to be replaced. We don’t recommend that everything be replaced unless indicated in our evidence, so you can budget and plan for future works.

As a company we also like to take on more difficult and tricky projects, so when everyone else is scratching their heads or telling you it can’t be done give us a call.  We particularly like working on remediation projects, challenging modifications and upgrades to structures and the design of false work.

Mechanical Engineering

When performance and output are vital and downtime is critical, you can’t afford to take chances on anything but the best.  At FIELD, mechanical engineering is our strongest suit. Our senior engineers hold Chartered status with Engineers Australia and are registered with the Board of Engineers Queensland.

We are best known for our maintenance solutions particularly in mining and processing equipment like draglines, rope shovels and processing plants.

We are equipped with state-of-the-art systems for the heavy duty modelling and analysis of mechanical projects, and more importantly, we know how to use it.

Every project is different but check out our Case Studies to see how FIELD innovation in mechanical design made a big difference to our clients.

Civil Engineering

In recent year our Civil engineering team have built a strong track record in a wide variety of projects for clients ranging from mine and ports to roadworks and civil construction.  Recent projects have included:

  • Bulk earthworks
  • Roads and drainage
  • Shaded parking facilities for vehicles
  • Reinforced concrete aprons for ultra heavy mining equipment
  • Storm water management
  • Water supply
  • Sewerage reticulation

We use the latest civil engineering design software including AutoCAD Civil designer, 12D, PC Drain and Hec-Ras plus external and in-house programs we’ve developed for specific projects.

When it comes to Civil engineering we love a challenge, so talk to us about your next project


Modelling & Design

From concept to reality…get it right the first time

We know that the quality of drawings can have a significant flow on effect to the cost of a project.  Poor quality drawings mean fabricators and contractors will include a contingency in their pricing to allow for uncertainty and at the jobsite, lack of information, design errors and RFI’s cause costly delays and reworks which can cost more than the original drafting cost.

At FIELD we take modelling and drafting seriously.  In fact, in 2012 we purchased Mackay’s leading drafting company Mackay Industrial Design (MID) to make sure our clients had access to the best of the best.

All our design and drafting team are tertiary qualified and proficient is CAD and Solid Modelling software.  All our projects are overseen by senior drafters with over 20 years drafting experience.

Most importantly our drafting and design team share offices and work closely with our engineers so you get efficient, precise designs that are certified, compliant with all relevant standards and fabricator, contractor and jobsite friendly.

As specialists in Processing Plant, Dragline and Shovel upgrades we have provided modifications and new designs for:

  • Plant relocation and duplications
  • Lifting and transportation frames.
  • Piping systems
  • Improved walkways and guarding compliance
  • Detailed fabrication drawings
  • Conceptual designs to assist with long term planning and cost analysis
