Southern Cross Station Roof Trusses


Southern Cross Station Roof Trusses

Principal: Victorian State Government
Builder: Leightons Contractors
Contract Value: $6.2 Million

Description: Detail, supply, fabricate and surface-coat the main spine trusses for the Southern Station wave roof. The trusses consisted of large diameter pipe sections that were curved in three dimensions and then fully butt welded to form the main trusses. Each truss was unique and had to be manufactured to very strict tolerances due to the on-site requirements of being able to install the truss units without any hold ups during an operational station and extremely expensive plant and equipment being utilised. A high degree of surface protection was required and the finish to all materials was to be first class as befits such an iconic important project.
