126 Phillip Street, Sydney, NSW
Ancon Building Products supplied heavy duty cast-in channels to support the curtain wall façade at 126 Phillip Street in Sydney's Central Business District.
The 40-storey commercial office that has Deutsche Bank as its main tenant is hard to miss due to the 'spires' which form its 280-tonne structural steel architectural roof feature.
The building was designed by Foster & Partners, with construction undertaken by Bovis Lend Lease.
There are various methods of fixing to concrete or steel frames.
Masonry cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel shelf angle.
Wall ties and restraint fixings are an essential element in the stability of masonry panels.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
