New construction magnets that use two different materials have been installed at the Queensland Department of Construction, which has been awarded $4.9 million in federal funding to help develop new construction equipment and materials for the industry.
The Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development is funding the new research and development, which aims to improve the performance of existing equipment and to develop new equipment and products for the construction industry.
Construction equipment magnets are designed to be strong and flexible, and are used to form the supporting structures for structures.
“We are really excited about the new equipment,” Queensland Construction Industries Association executive director Chris Anderson said.
“These new magnets are incredibly light, durable and flexible and they have been designed to work with the right types of materials.”
Mr Anderson said the magnets are also designed to increase the speed of the beams and to increase its strength.
“It’s about increasing the speed at which the beams move and the speed with which the structure moves,” he said.
“This means that we are able to work more efficiently.”
Mr Christensen said the project would be the first of its kind in Queensland.
“There is a lot of interest in this area and it is something that we really want to explore,” he, who has been involved in the project for nearly two decades, said.
The project is one of a number of projects in Queensland to help the construction and engineering industry, including a $500,000 grant from the Federal Government.
The Queensland Government said it had been a long-time supporter of the industry, and the funding will help ensure the industry’s future.
