Taco Bell East Ipswich

STS Structural has successfully delivered multiple Taco Bell fast food restaurants around the Brisbane area for various builders.

STS Structural worked closely with the design and fabrication team to provide the engineering design, certification, and on site structural compliance inspections for the Taco Bell at East Ipswich. The structure was made of Truecore® light gauge steel frames. Design innovations eradicated the use of any heavy hot rolled steel sections, which reduced craning requirements, and allowing the structure to be erected quickly. The challenges on this project included very shallow roof trusses with a large number of service penetrations, large open plan dining area with considerable glazing and high walls, and the ‘bell tower’ which was positioned on the roof of the dining area and required concealed support as it did not extend to the ground.
