Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre

To connect the state-of-the-art Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre with the neighbouring Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Women’s Hospital, the urban designers of Australia’s premier medical precinct required two enclosed bridges to be constructed and then lifted into place.

DESCRIPTION

Stilcon provided the full-range of fabrication and installation services, from its advanced manufacturing hub in western Melbourne. Comprising eight trusses per bridge plus framework, the units were constructed to precision and then ‘slid’ into place using mobile cranes, before being fixed to the adjoining buildings. As well as the bridges, Stilcon also provided all the steel manufacturing for the VCCC’s exterior ‘skeleton’ as well as a similar framework on the roof to contain both a plant room and atrium ceiling.
