    VMS Gantries

    This project involved the design of a new 6m high gantry/bridge to span approximately 55m, supporting two variable signs (VMS) and one static sign for Vic Roads. An extension to an existing gantry was also designed (see photograph). The gantry/bridge included a walkway along the entire span, and comprised the following:


    • Structural steel design to AS 5100 and AS 4100 for gantry structure for dead, live and wind loads
    • Dynamic analysis of the structure to ensure safe operation
    • Steel connection design to AS 4100 and AS 5100
    • Provision of assembly and fabrication drawings for steelwork
    • Concrete footing/pile design to AS 3600 with construction drawings
    • Provision of structural certification for the gantry/bridge
    • Design and drafting of access ladder and cage, including shop drawings for fabrication purposes

    Empire Building - Flinders Street Melbourne

    DPS provides structural steel design and drafting services for multi-level structures.  The project shown involved a five level extension to an existing building opposite Flinders Street Station in Melbourne.  The resulting twelve level building includes ground level retail shops and apartments above. Concrete decking was used for the floors
    The full range of steel detailing was provided for all members, including CAD steel drafting and site measure to existing features. Close liaison was required with the steel fabricator to ensure a timely delivery of members for construction to this tight program.
