Situation
The Brown and Hurley families have been associated with John Westera since his days as Kyogle Shire Engineer back in the 1980s. Since this time and in particular more recently, Westera Partners have assisted in the national expansion plans of the Brown and Hurley Group. Part of this expansion was the design and construction of their Yatala branch including a sales yard, spare parts facility and workshop.

Solution
Westera Partners were commissioned by Brown and Hurley to undertake the Structural and Civil Engineering services for this project. We also assisted in construction tendering, builder selection and negotiations as well as construction administration and inspections. The Yatala project consisted of a modern, architecturally designed, purpose built precast tilt panel building with specialised finishes unique to the Brown and Hurley Group. Detailed consideration was given to the environmental sensitive elements of the project including the on site water usage and stormwater treatment. The practical, hands on nature of the client ensured that maximum efficiency was achieved for the end users.

Results
Westera Partners have also assisted the Brown and Hurley group, in a similar role with their new branches in Toowoomba and Townsville. The Townsville branch was subject to the damaging winds of Cyclone Yasi and survived relatively unscathed. Westera Partners is proud to be associated with quality companies that share the same core values, such as the Brown and Hurley Group, whose motto is "People before Profit".
