Prefabricated Services Bridge

Prefabricated Services Bridge


Location: Melbourne, Victoria

Client: AG Coombs

Scope: KUSCH was engaged by AG Coombs to design a prefabricated pipe bridge to support services travelling between the new central energy building and the main production facility of a large pharmaceutical facility.  

Design Achievements:

  • Prefabrication allowed the structure and services to be installed within a day.
  • Significant reduction in construction time and WHS risks.  

Design Considerations:

  • Conventional construction of this elevated structure was going to require significant work at height around lifted loads.
  • Differential movements and forces associated with both chilled water and high-temperature steam pipes, differential movements between buildings, as well as gravity, wind, seismic and lifting loads.
