Structural Steelwork – AECC – Conference Centre Trusses

Work is progressing well onsite at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.  Our onsite crews have begun the task of erecting the large roof trusses within the Conference Centre.  These 15 no trusses are approximately 55 meters in length, 4.1m in depth and delivered to site in 4 pieces which are then bolted and welded together onsite within Trestles or toast racks as they are otherwise known (Orange structures in the pictures).  These are temporary support frames which hold the truss upright.  Once all checks are carried out the truss can be lifted up and in place using 2 cranes in a tandem lift.
