The client, PCI Data Centre has achieved the largest site possible as UB steel beams are smaller in profile compared to wooden piles, this is due to the different engineering requirements when using UB steel beams.
Gary Cooke of ICB Steel Construction commented, “The galvanising of UB steel beams by Perry Metal Protection has provided many benefits on this project, including on time delivery and galvanised beams with the added advantage of a long-life cycle.”
Advantages of Perry Metal Protection Galvanised Piles:
- Galvanised steel piles comply with Council regulations for a 50-year life as required under the building act requirement.
- High Corrosion zones are taken care of with HDG 900 specification options and available duplex coatings.
