HarbourTown Canopy

With a view to providing all-weather shelter for visitors to Melbourne’s HarbourTown shopping precinct, the clients appointed Stilcon to provide the intricate architectural steel structure for its new walkway canopies.

DESCRIPTION

These highly detailed rolled-steel structures, supporting an ETFE polymer sheeting ‘bubble’ roof, called for hundreds of precisely located t-brackets to be welded onto the framework. This labour intensive and time consuming process required up to two days for each member to be completed, to ensure absolute accuracy and utmost structural integrity in all weather conditions.
