Madsen Giersing Appointed to Engineering Panel

By | News

Madsen Giersing is delighted to have been appointed to the Queensland Rail Contract QRP-21-42  Civil / Structural Engineering and Investigative Services Panel.

CEO, Lasse Madsen, welcomed the appointment, “We are thrilled to have been selected to become a member of a panel supporting Queensland Rail’s engineering and investigative services requirements.”

“We have enjoyed working with Queensland Rail in the past across critical projects, including groundbreaking analysis of bridge structures across QR’s bridge network in the Wide Bay region. The project saw us create an engineering solution that preserved and extended the lifespan of several century-old bridges without fundamentally changing the structure’s look.”

“In addition, through our partnership with Canstruct as the contractor, we worked with the University of Queensland using sections from decommissioned bridges to undertake a testing programme that would provide a complete structural analysis that could act as a baseline for bridges of a similar age.

“Working with UQ enabled us to utilise their facilities to undertake comprehensive testing in a controlled environment, using the latest technologies and techniques. We provided feedback on bridge performance through our testing and analysis, assisting a major asset owner in keeping vital transport connections operational.”

“As panellists, we look forward to supporting Queensland Rail as they manage, grow and deliver assets vital to the movement of people and goods in Queensland,” said Lasse.
