Artificial nesting platforms were constructed as part of a critical conservation project for the endangered Osprey (fish-eating eagle). They are increasingly threatened in South Australia, with an estimated 50 pairs remaining. A solution to this decline is raised offshore nesting platforms made from our Composite Fibre Technology sections and other materials, encouraging this species to raise their young out of harm’s way. Our composite fibre structures were selected as they are resistant to corrosion, easy to install and maintain.
We supplied the Tweed Shire Council with eight pre-stressed, pre-cast bridge girders composed of Earth Friendly Concrete®. The girders are being used by the Council to replace an old timber road bridge at Upper Burringbar, NSW. The use of Earth Friendly Concrete® instead of ordinary concrete lowered the bridge's carbon footprint by more than 12 tonnes.
Our composite fibre light poles were selected as a cost-effective, environmentally sensitive solution that provides the community with a superior and long-life asset.

Our corrosion resistant light poles were selected as an economical solution for this project which saw the replacement of 29 painted galvanised steel light poles at southern Breakwater. We were able to supply North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation with a custom design and solution to suit their needs, with poles fabricated to exact heights and outreach that could withstand cyclone winds.
Thirdson Construction are committed to a sustainable future that is why they selected Earth Friendly Concrete® by Wagners (EFC®) for a residential project to eliminate over 29 tonnes of embodied carbon from the building. This saving is the equivalent to running a residential house for four and half years.
This project saw the construction of the new Town Beach Jetty for the Shire of Broome at the location of the historic Broome jetties. It included installation of coated steel piles, precast concrete deck panels and aluminium deck modules. Wagners were contracted by SMC Marine to provide CFT handrails for the main deck and the lower landing. The new jetty is 112m in length and Wagners supplied over 250 linear metres of CFT handrails and an access gate.
