New live-in accommodation at Lavarack Barracks

The new accommodation units at Lavarack Barracks in Townsville, Queensland, showcase tropical architecture, extensive prefabrication of building components and fire engineering design. 

InfraBuild (formerly LIBERTY OneSteel) products feature strongly, with structural steel sections, reinforcement and DuraGal® products used widely in the construction. InfraBuild's fire engineering technology enabled a cost saving of $150,000 by demonstrating, through scale model tests carried out at VUT, that all exposed structural steel elements did not require fire protection.
