Flinders University – Carpark No. 5
Chappell | 2001
Bowhill Engineering was contracted to take part in this project in November of 2000. The scope of the job included: Manufacture of over 500m of heavy duty crash rail/balustrade.
In house detailed 3 dimensional shop drawings and site survey, fabrication, surface treatment, transportation, and erection of approximately 50t of complex steel.
Complex drawings and fabrication resulting from the varying heights and falls of the open air suspended car park slab.
Extremely tight construction period (recovered a 8 week design consultant delay).
No site alterations allowed due to the surface treatment being hot dip galvanized as an architectural finish.
Supply and installation of stainless steel cables to the balustrade
