Project Review: FRP & WPC Viewing Platform

Back in 2010, our National Structures team was engaged by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (SA) to design and install a viewing platform on Kangaroo Island. This structure had demanding requirements – a global tourist attraction and a very unique spectacle – the daily ritual of feeding local pelicans. Given the iconic characteristics, the department required materials with unbeatable performance. Our structures team designed a platform with an FRP substructure and WPC platform surface. A virtually maintenance free viewing platform that will last a life time in the harsh marine environment of Southern Australia.
