Constructionarium Australia is an organisation focused on supporting the next generation of infrastructure, engineering and construction professionals to gain skills and build networks by working on real projects.
With teams operating in Queensland and Victoria, Constructionarium aims to bring theory to life by building a replica of an iconic structure, for example, Brisbane’s Story Bridge.
In this instance, a bespoke Victorian structure that commemorates the achievements of bridge design and construction across the state was constructed by a team of students.
Designed by Arcadis, fabricated by Best Fab and with material support from Holcim, Jaybro, Coates, InfraBuild, and Glenn Hester Photography, the structure weighed in at 12.5 tonnes. Measuring 25m long x 4m wide, it posed several challenges for the students which they had to overcome to deliver to schedule and on budget.
