Material - Recycled hardwood from the original Bretts gantry shed at Windsor
Each truss was handmade from 350mm x 150mm hardwood beams, bolted together using purpose built laser cut plates.
Truss profiles were developed using Pryda software, enabling CAD drawings to be prepared. The recycled timber was then cut on Bretts Hundegger saw and the steel plates laser cut according to CAD drawings supplied by Bretts. Each truss was made in Bretts factory on one of the Quickset truss jigs and took approximately 6 man hours to complete. Due to the extreme weight each component had to be lifted onto the jig by forklift. Once made, two forklifts were required to lift the completed truss out of the jig.
