Townsville Cruise Terminal
Year completed: 2013
Builder: Seymour Whyte
Size: 600 m2
Working closely with Arkhefield, we needed to ensure that the roof structures’ twisted shapes were made from a material that could handle acute tension and cyclonic standards.
The length of the 13 metre panels also meant a carefully planned and tailored solution was required to transport and install them on a roof structure with such a steep pitch.
Proven profiles, precious metals
We used VM Zinc ‘Anthra’ to ensure that the structure was capable of corrosion resistant due to its exposed position in a harsh salt water climate.
A standing seam roof system coupled with the malleability of zinc made certain that we could achieve the tricky twisted shapes of each roof span.
Townsville’s stunning Cruise Terminal has been built to last. Its distinctive elements will be enjoyed by visitors for years to come.
