Vacation Work

Agriculture & General, Griffith, NSW.

A&G were involved in the design and manufacture of customised equipment for the food industry. I was involved in preparation and design of customer and shop (technical) drawings of various tanks, production layouts and general winery equipment. Also time was spent in the field assisting in the manufacture of 285,000 litre tanks on site. A period was also spent in the machine shop operating lathes and milling machines.

Brown Brothers Milawa Vineyards, Victoria.

The initial development layout drawings were completed for an entire self contained winery, capable of processing 500 tonnes of fruit per vintage. The basic steel structure, drainage, walkways, machinery placement, waste disposal, fruit receipt and cool store structures were all included in this project. The project involved extensive consultation and development with established wine makers and cellar hands who would be involved in its operation. The completed winery has been an enormous success.
