As part of a recent commercial project we fabricated and installed stainless steel balustrades along a shared path at Queen's Wharf, located along the Brisbane City foreshore.

A 'shared path' is usually defined as a pathway or coherent network that is primarily used by both pedestrians and bicycle riders. For Queen's Wharf we fabricated and installed a total of 950 metres of high-quality 316 marine grade stainless steel pedestrian balustrade and 350 metres of bicycle balustrade.

We helped engineer the balustrades during the initial design stage, provided detailed shop drawings for the balustrades using Solidworks and we were able to assist the client by producing full detailed drawings of the concrete girders and services within.

The stainless steel plates were water cut in-house, polished to 600 grit with a surface smoothness less than RA 0.5 microns, fully fabricated to AS1554.6 then electropolished in-house prior to delivery on site for installation.

This pathway, along with a lot of other projects we have worked on help encourage exercise, assists in reducing traffic congestion and offers an attractive and enjoyable ride along the Brisbane River.
