Structural steelwork supply, fabricate, surface treat and deliver
Innovative methodologies: NC pipe profiling of truss steel connections. Pre-cambering to correct heights and load testing before delivery to site.
Technical challenges: Logistics of large sections to remote and distant location. Special load simulation and customised jigs were made to gain efficiencies and control damage to high-performance coatings during the delivery phase of the project.
Coating details: 3 coat high build high-performance coating system for indoor chlorinated environment. Highly scrutinised application during a difficult time of the year (winter).
Successful outcomes: Coating finish was exceptional with our coating applicator Dion Holland receiving a Dulux Protective Coating Certificate of Excellence for his efforts in applying a tricky system to such a high standard.
The site erection team and client were very impressed with the accuracy of the steelwork and the ease of fit up on site.
