Puffing Billy Lakeside Discovery Centre
PROJECT FAST FACTS
Victoria’s iconic tourist attraction Puffing Billy required a new structure known as the Puffing Billy Lakeside Discovery Centre. Our role in this project was to draft, fabricate, paint and install the 250 tonne structure.
The architects were inspired by the rail industry and the final structure included many complex, angled, steel shapes and joints that were exposed to public view. A high-spec painted finish was essential.
Our CNC Beam Line machine handled the intricate cuts required on the beams. This massively reduced the labour time spent achieving the specified architectural style. Our in-house painting capability meant we kept full control of the painted finish ensuring customer satisfaction and eliminating paint re-work.
Our in-house capabilities for beam and plate processing, fabrication, painting and installation ensured a successful on-time project.
