Concrete Footpaths in Laidley

Concrete Footings in Laidley

There are two essential parts of building foundations during construction. The first is the soil below the foundation and the second being the type of footing or slabs supported by the soil. Footings are usually made of concrete with reinforcing bars that have been poured into an excavated trench. Footings are essential, especially in areas that have troublesome soils.

Three types of concrete foundations

Below are three common types of concrete foundations:

  1. T-shaped. This is a traditional method of foundation that supports a structure in an area of which the ground freezes. The footing will be placed below a specific frost line followed by the walls being added on top then the slab is placed. Here, the footing will be wider than the wall, which will provide extra support at the base of the created foundation.
  2. Slab-on-grade foundation. A foundation used for areas where the ground doesn't freeze. In this method, the slab will be thicker at the edges than the interior, forming an integral footing. This will then reinforce the rods, strengthening the thickened edge.
  3. Frost protected. This method is reserved only for heated structures. Here, the concrete will be poured monolithically (poured all at one time) in areas that are subject to frost. Unlike the three pours for T-shaped foundation, frost-protected method pours concrete in only one operation.

$1.96B QLD MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct Approved

Two windfarms and up to 400 jobs in the Southern Downs are a step closer to reality with the State Assessment and Referral Agency giving the green light.Deputy Premier and Planning Minister Steven Miles said Acciona received approval to build the $1.96 billion MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct (the Precinct) at Cement Mills, approximately 40 kilometres south-west of Warwick.“Soon there will be 180 wind turbines in the Darling Downs South West region propelling up to 1026 megawatts of energy into Queensland’s electricity network,” Mr Miles said.“Once operational the MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct is expected to generate enough renewable electricity to supply about 700,000 Queensland homes.“The MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct is set to provide up to 400 local jobs during construction, with an additional 240 jobs for the construction of the 64km transmission line, and 14 fulltime jobs once in operation.“Acciona also expects its local spend during construction to exceed $500 million, which is great news for the Southern Downs, Goondiwindi, and Toowoomba communities.”Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen Mick de Brenni said the project would deliver jobs for Queenslanders.“I’m pleased that Acciona have committed to our Government’s Buy Queensland approach to use a local workforce and suppliers on this $1.96 billion project,” he said.“This will deliver significant economic benefits for the Darling Downs and beyond, and more renewable megawatts as the state works to reach its 50 per cent renewable energy target by 2030.“The commitment to a 50 per cent renewable energy target by 2030 has already enabled more than $9.9 billion of investment since December 2016 and created 7,000 construction jobs.Mr de Brenni said the 103 megawatt Karara Wind Farm, which forms part of the MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct, will be owned and operated by the Government-owned energy generator, CleanCo Queensland.“This will be a central energy generator for CleanCo and will significantly bolster its portfolio of low-emission energy assets – owned by Queensland, for Queensland.”In addition to owning and operating the Karara Wind Farm, CleanCo will also purchase 400 megawatts of renewable energy per year from the MacIntyre Wind Farm.CleanCo CEO Dr Maia Schweizer said the approval is a significant step forward for the project.“CleanCo is proud to be partnering with Acciona to deliver such a significant project in Queensland’s renewable energy landscape,” Dr Schweizer said.“With this project we are harnessing wind with a profile that perfectly complements solar energy - that allows us to provide reliable, affordable low-emissions energy to our large commercial and industrial customers using our unique portfolio, and is an important step toward unlocking Queensland’s potential to generate and use globally competitive clean energy.” Acciona’s Australian Managing Director for Energy, Brett Wickham said the 36,000-hectare MacIntyre windfarm represents the company’s largest ever wind farm.“We are excited to be moving forward with this project and are proud to support the Queensland Government’s decarbonisation strategy.“The Precinct will avoid the emission of nearly 3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.”Part of the Precinct will be developed in partnership with Queensland’s own Ark Energy Corporation. Ark Energy, a subsidiary of Korea Zinc Co. and the Australian vehicle for its clean energy business, has taken a 30 per cent stake in the 923 megawatt MacIntyre Wind Farm exercisable at Final Investment Decision. The approved development of the Precinct includes the 162 turbine MacIntyre project, the smaller 18 turbine Karara project and 64km overhead transmission line to the Powerlink network near Millmerran.Acciona expects to start construction on the MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct in the second half of this year and be fully operational by 2024.
