Macalloy Tension Bars were used during renovation work at the Queen Victoria Shopping Centre in Sydney, Australia. The renovation work was demanding in this iconic building and Macalloy products had to meet tough specifications as the essence of the old building had to be integrated into the modern engineering solutions Macalloy provided through its tension bar and tie bar ranges.
Macalloy tension bars were used on the refurbishment of the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney, Australia. The building, originally built in the late 1800’s was refurbished to provide modern retail facilities while still maintaining the original design features.
The roof structure was strengthened with additional steelwork and then central elevators suspended from the roof using Macalloy tie bars.
This meant no groundwork was needed for supporting columns and the original ornate flooring could remain undisturbed.
