The RIX Group – Anchor plates

In March 2018 HLD was engaged by The Rix Group to design a set of anchor plates for the Sydney Metro infrastructure project.

The Sydney Metro project is the largest public transport project in Australia. Currently under construction, the project will connect North West Sydney with Bankstown via a new harbour crossing and a number of new stations.

As part of the construction of the Metro, the anchor plates were designed to be installed with a varying number of post tensioned strands at different angles as required.

The challenging project required the development of a uniform system that could be utilised across several different loads to decrease the anchor plates’ manufacture and install time.

HLD is also working on the new M5 site, providing technical lift studies for the project’s construction contractors, Samsung, Dragados and CPB Contractors.
