Collingwood’s St Joseph Church was gutted by fire in 2007 but fortunately the Church was fully insured for heritage replacement of up to 3 million dollars.
The Church was built around 1861 and have seen a number of renovations and additions over the years. Most recently, 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 result was a beautiful and edgy take on a newly renovated Church.
