Macquarie University Innovation Hub Place the first timber roof cassettes
April 26, 2017
In the early hours of the morning on April 26th at approximately 1am, the Lipman project team and Strongbuild lifted the very first timber roof cassette into place on the Macquarie University Innovation Hub. The cassettes weigh approximately 3 tonne and are 20m in length with a simple span of 14.4m.
It was a significant milestone for the project and was the culmination of months of collaboration between the entire project group. Thanks to all involved.
