Project Description

Council’s vision is to advance a resilient and robust economy in the region; which reflects a strong sense of community, successful businesses and a healthy environment.  Council aims to protect and improve the quality of life for their community, and for future generations.


Business value created for Richmond Valley Council
Wiley’s meat and construction industry specialists worked collaboratively with key stakeholders to increase the facility’s operational efficiencies. The new roof , flooring system and selling area provided agents and buyers with a significantly-improved facility in which to conduct business. The upgraded facility protects users of the sale yards from the weather conditions and provides vastly-improved animal welfare conditions.

Compelling need for the project
Richmond Valley Council identified that the Casino saleyards required upgrade to improve Workplace Health and Safety, animal welfare, operational efficiencies and long-term viability.

The challenging scope Wiley delivered
The project was delivered in two phases to allow for continual operations to the sale yards.Phase one included upgrade works in the holding yards, relocation of a manual crush, storm-water connection and site preparation for the tank installation.

“If you are one of the 1,200 people employed by the meatworks, a cattle producer, or a small business in the region, this redevelopment is great news, as the upgrade will ensure Casino remains the regional centre for this industry, thereby helping job security.”

The integrated safety culture and focus was evident from the tendering phase and maintained throughout the project. Wiley have a specialist safety team who provided good documentation of processes and were keen to integrate and align College safety procedures. The construction team and subcontractors were appropriately supervised to ensure the documented high standards of safety and behaviour were implemented
