Paterson Street West Carpark Tasmania

Steel solution for Paterson Street Carpark

Motorists in Launceston, Tasmania, have witnessed the rapid rise of a new 305-bay parking facility at the western end of Paterson Street. Easy parking is facilitated by the large spans of the steel-framed structure constructed over the wet winter months, which would have slowed most other building systems.

The carpark is owned and operated by the Launceston City Council. Robert Luxmoore Pty Ltd, project manager, was engaged for the preparation of design documentation, tenders and construction. At an early stage, BHP’s Structural Steel Development Group worked with the project manager, structural engineering consultant Bonacci Winward, the building contractor and steel fabricator to examine options for a steel-framed structure.
