300PLUS® keeps P&O in the freeze
The requirement to expose structural steel to -250C-degree temperatures in the construction of P&O Cold Storage’s recently completed 9000sqm cold storage facility at Laverton, Victoria, provided both engineering challenges and rewards for structural and civil consultant Davis Naismith.

The $10 million design and construct tender was won by builder Vaughan Constructions, while architect Scott Sheldon Design worked with Davis Naismith on the design team.
