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 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 installation of trusses.
