Cairns Regional Council – Pedestrian Bridge

The Cairns Regional Council, located in far north Queensland, Australia has recently installed one of two new shared path pedestrian bridges as part of a cycleway development. Council have recognised the need for high strength, lightweight and extremely durable materials to withstand the harsh climate of Australia’s far north. SIS were contacted to supply our StructuralComp FRP components to work within the steel superstructure.

Sutherland Leisure Centre – FRP Ceiling Replacement

SIS has recently completed a ceiling refurbishment in partnership with Bermagui Constructions in NSW. The Sutherland Leisure Centre in NSW, Australia has undertaken a general centre renovation that included the ceiling above the main pool. SIS was called upon by the architect to propose an alternative to steel that would not require painting so as to minimise future maintenance requirements. SIS technicians were able to colour match our FRP product to the exact colour specification of a Dulux Shimmer Quarter – a colour similar to light blue.
