Brisbane's New 480 Queen Street Office Tower
A steel-intensive approach to Brisbane’s new 480 Queen Street office tower not only reduced construction time but also alleviated onsite congestion, providing better safety and logistical efficiencies.
Mark Cubby, Sales Manager Processing at Liberty OneSteel Metalcentre says "the process of erecting a steel structure compared to concrete structure, I believe, is about 6 months quicker."
Alan Courtney, Senior Site Supervisor for Pacific Industrial Company (PIC) says “for the 30 years I’ve been building high rise structures out of concrete and this is probably the first time I’ve seen it go this effortlessly."
He continues "there’s predictability and the certainty in steel structures and steel construction, I think Grocon (the Developer) should be applauded for their innovation and adopting this as a model for the future”
