Tasmania’s largest construction company Fairbrother & John Holland teamed up to build the new Menzies Centre Building. Composite Fibre (FRP) bearers were specified for the substructure below the outdoor deck areas with 600 lm of product used. While the Fairbrother/John Holland tradespeople onsite were unfamiliar with FRP, they found it easy to work with. The major benefit it that it will long outlast timber which would have been the more traditional material chosen.
