Parkinson Aquatic Centre
Spantech is part of a consortium of companies contracted by the Brisbane City Council to design, construct and operate the Parkinson Aquatic Centre. The consortium includes Liquid Blu Architects, Spantech and City Venue Management.
The project was recognised with a safety award from Royal Life Saving – Australia. For more information on this project see Parkinson Aquatic Centre.
Constructing the Parkinson Aquatic Centre
Parkinson Aquatic Centre – A Place to Call Home
Royal Life Saving Australia awarded the Parkinson Aquatic centre the 2017 RLSA Facility Design Safety Award.
Sydney Water was keen to explore innovative, high quality and cost effective solutions when they replaced the roof of the Campbelltown Reservoir. Sydney Water provides high quality water to around five million customers. So naturally they are keenly focused on providing their customers with better value for money and a high quality service.
Spantech 370 Series Profile
Spantech introduced the 370 Series panel to our product line in 2001. The site-rolled Spantech panel is unique. The straight panel can span up to 9m and when curved, the Spantech 370 Series panel can span up to 40m wide.
This video demonstrates how we use our technology to construct a 40m wide Spantech 370 Series roof.
Spantech Defence Buildings – The Second Test
In 1990 Spantech designed the Spantech Explosives Storehouse (ESH). The revolutionary building is designed to store up to 75,000 kgs (NEQ) of HD1.1 explosives at D3 and D4 inter-magazine distances.
The best way for Spantech to test the design was to construct a set of prototype buildings at the Woomera Rocket Range in South Australia and have the Australian Department of Defence test them in a series of spectacular full-scale explosive trials.

Pinkenbah Bulk Store
Spantech created the 370 Series construction panel to free-span up to 40 metres without the need for any trusses or internal columns.
This video follows the construction of the first 370 Series project in 2001, a multipurpose bulk storage facility for GrainCorp at the Port of Brisbane located in the suburb of Pinkenbah.
