Glen Waverley Powercor industrial depot
B2B Project and Construction Management contacted us to design and construct a new industrial depot for their client Powercor in Glen Waverly, VIC.
The building needed to have a 50m clear span width to accommodate servicing inside. There needed to be a fire isolation section and a truck wash included in the design. We also needed to design the structure over an existing footprint and for eave heights to be within town planning restrictions. There needed to be large openings to allow for trucks to drive through the building.

Challenges and solutions
To answer the requirement of a 15m wide opening and the clear span design, we applied a novel girder truss solution to limit deflection while maintaining minimum required clearances.
Collaboration between Central Steel Build, the architect, and roller door supplier was required in relation to the firewalls between different sections of the building. Due to restricted site access and the project scale, there was a lot of coordination between our engineer and third-party installer so the roof could be designed in segments to be crane lifted and filled in afterward.
