02 Mar Case Study: iEDM Internships

Our Directors are passionate about the role that industry can play in the education of today's Students. We believe that integration in the workplace during study is essential to increase the employability of graduates. Our Chairman, John Howe sits on the Advisory Boards to both Griffith University and the Study Gold Coast, Employability Programme. "We have developed learned outcome strategies to ensure that Students receive a well-rounded experience, attaining skills that will greatly increase their  value to any organisation upon the completion of their degree." - John Howe, Chairman iEDM After completing a 2016 iEDM Internship, including work on the Gold Coast 600, engineering student Brad Sullivan has just completed an eight week summer holiday contract with iEDM at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide prior to beginning his fourth year of study. During the internship, Brad was exposed to skills in quality assurance, procurement, client communication, engineering standards, contractor engagement and work health and safety. The skills learnt during the internship has meant that Brad has been a valued asset at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide. Brad’s role in Adelaide was Structural Engineering Administrator, including Site Inspections, for the 340 odd temporary structures. This is a significant role working with our engineering team and involved detailed analysis of...

28 Nov Final Sydney 500

Its late November 2016, we have demobilised from Gold Coast 600 site in Surfers Paradise, we have mobilised construction for the 2017 Clipsal 500 in Adelaide and we are in the final week of building the last ever Coates Hire Sydney 500. It’s a bitter-sweet feeling for our team. We are absolutely jumping-out-our-skin excited for Newcastle in November next year, but we have loved our time in Sydney Olympic Park. The blood, sweat and tears our team put into the first year at Homebush, as it was then, has given a few of us a special connection to the space and people whom we achieved it with. Everyone who works in the Event Industry can understand this. It’s when you go so hard for a long period of time getting that first-time event delivered, your workmates are your family, you’re operating purely on adrenaline and it’s not uncommon for deliriousness to take over at any time of the day. In that first year, iEDM was engaged in February and tasked with the design, engineering, delivery of $20M civil works and fabrication and the planning and delivery of the overlay for the Event in the first week of December. It was a massive undertaking and...

14 Jan Mount Panorama – Second Circuit

iEDM have been working with Bathurst Regional Council over the past few months on a preliminary feasibility for a second permanent motor sport circuit at Mount Panorama. Because of the street nature (and subsequently the residents) of the existing Mount Panorama Circuit, there are restrictions over its use throughout the year. The objective of the second circuit is to build on Bathurst’s reputation for being a motor sport destination by developing a venue which can be used throughout the year and for multiple uses. As a regional market, a tourist attraction that will consistently bring people to Bathurst can create very significant economic and social impact. A world class second circuit has the potential to attract activities such as: Major Events; Motor Sport Events / Series Rounds; Corporate Ride Days; Manufacturer / Motor Sport Testing; Manufacturer Ride Days; Training; and Motor Sport Industry Participation. All of the above activities will drive economic impact into the region and sustainably build on the once-a-year major impact of the Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar Event. Whilst the design and location of the circuit cannot be released at this stage, we can say that we are very excited about it. Anytime you are working with natural undulation on these types of projects, there is the...

12 Jan ABCB Temporary Structures Standard

Late in 2015, the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) released the much awaited (well, for us maybe) Standard - Temporary Structures. The Standard has been a long time coming for those of us in Australia who have struggled to meet the deemed to satisfy provisions of the BCA (or NCC) as well as other State specific building legislation when planning and constructing temporary structures. The Standard helps to clear up and soften some elements within the BCA and how they are applied to temporary structures. For instance, the Standard provides differing levels of engineering parameters to clearly identify the obvious lower risk associated with structures that are only in place for a very short period of time. The document will no doubt aid the further development of a lot of Event's structure policies. However, it is not the silver bullet we were probably all hoping for and there remains a lot of 'grey' which Event Promoters need to look at with their professional consultants. Further, at this stage, each State's relevant law's prevail over the Standard and it is unclear how, or if, each of the States will adopt or reference the Standard. iEDM provided advice to the ABCB during the development of the Standard from the point of view of an Event...
