St. Josephs Church - Collingwood

5 x 17m Warren Truss

Collingwood’s St Joseph Church was gutted by fire in 2007 but fortunately the Church was fully insured for heritage replacement, up to 3 million dollars.

The Church was built in 1861, or thereabouts, and seen a number of renovations and additions over the years.

CCB Envico approached Vicbeam to consider a design and construct a proposal to fabricate five large span Warren Trusses to support a new steel roof.

The trusses were installed in February 2017

  • Truss length:   17.240 Meters
  • Truss Height:   2.315 Meters
  • Truss weight:    2.5 Tonne
  • Truss members:  260 x 85 Vic Ash (doubled chords, webs with internal plates)
  • Steel:  12mm plate powder coated matt black
  • Coating:  Dulux Intergrain Ultraclear
  • Project duration: 6 months from initial enquiry to the installation of trusses.
