Introducing FIELD Engineers
Excellence in technical and engineering services, applying industry wisdom, seeking creative solutions to challenging problems … that’s the way we operate at FIELD.
The FIELD Engineers story
FIELD Engineers was established in 2005 in Mackay, Queensland when directors David Hartigan, Jon Halliday and Matthew Doidge decided to pool their complimentary skills to offer the Queensland mining industry a specialised project engineering team.
Operating from offices in Mackay, Brisbane and now Gladstone, the business has grown to include consulting engineering and design services across the civil, mechanical and structural disciplines.
Further expansion in 2010 saw the launch of FIELD HSE, focussed on the occupational hygiene and hazardous materials management needs of clients in Central Queensland.
Project engineering and management remain a foundation of the business, keeping us in-step with our clients and their challenges.
Supporting the local community is an important part of our culture. Every year we donate time and dollars to organisations and causes that promote healthy living or help people cope with tough times.
Leading the field, engineering better solutions.
FIELD Engineers is recognised as a leading provider in project management and industrial design. With a high-calibre team at its core and a commitment to delivering better solutions, FIELD Engineers is known for high performance outcomes, delivered consistently over the past ten years.
Experienced, equipped and prepared problem-solvers
It’s less about what you can do and more about what you can do really well … we have the expertise for a specific range of services.
Our core values
From design to project management, we make sure that engineering makes it out into the paddock where it belongs, and is not just a drawing left on a desk in the office. FIELD is better equipped, better qualified and delivers better results for your project.
Our directors are hands-on in the business and actively recruit the best people in their fields to join the team.
The right people, in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills is central to the FIELD vision.
FIELD Engineers was approached by the mine manager to design a bracing system to support the ROM structure at Coppabella Mine. After lateral movement in the adjacent retaining wall, the stability of the structure was compromised raising the possibility that the ROM wall would collapse.
Laser Scanning: Over 50 projects’ experience in specialist laser scanning and tracking services. When performed by FIELD the scans are being carried out by the people who are going to use the information. This offers you a faster and more accurate outcome when it comes to the following data processing. We have fully-trained and qualified laser scanning technicians with expert knowledge and capability to capture and interpret critical information.
Strain Gauging: At FIELD Engineers, we have a team of qualified strain gauging technicians equipped with the expertise of collecting and interpreting strain gauge data. The strain gauging team at FIELD have honed their skills by collecting data from draglines, shiploaders, cranes and even concrete structure to provide the engineering team with real-life data for analysis. The high accuracy strain gauge data can be collected in both static and dynamic environments using our state-of-the-art hardware that operates in a non-destructive and non-invasive way.
Heavy Weighing: Since being developed by FIELD, the “Heavy Weighing Kit” has been used to find the mass and COG of several different structures and objects including a 1250 tonne shiploader and a 400t platform structure to be mounted on an industrial silo. The heavy weighing system is modular which means that it can be expanded to suit any sized structure to provide precise mass and COG data allowing for refined crane and transport plant selection.
