Project construction company Jupiter Steel’s Director/General Manager, Mr. Russell Lang, said “The railway stations are our major project at the moment, and plenty of Orrcon Steel’s Hollow Sections are being used to make them look superb.”
Elements of the four stations incorporating Orrcon Steel Smart Steel Hollow Sections include the lift shafts, columns, roof framing and covered walkways.
Designers and architects typically specify steel hollow sections in construction projects, as they offer a more architectural and contemporary appearance. Over 50 tonnes of rectangular, square and circular hollow sections have been used in each of the rail line’s stations.
Mr. Lang said “We enjoy working with Orrcon Steel because we can get nextday and sometimes even same-day delivery, and not only are they competitive on price, but have a product range and alternative lengths in a range which suits our fabrication requirements.”
The Perth-Mandurah railway – and in particular the stations and covered walkways – is a prime example of Orrcon Steel Smart Steel Hollow Sections facilitating smarter construction.
