The Sydney Opera House Turns 40
One of Australia's most recognisable buildings, the Sydney Opera House, is 40 years old. Built in the 1970's it is now one of the world's busiest performance venues.
Some 20 years after the venue was opened, Ancon supplied stainless steel reinforcing bar to the upgrade of the external promenade.
Stainless steel offers many advantages to the specifier and its use in the Construction Industry continues to increase.
Stainless steel reinforcement ensures a high degree of corrosion resistance without requiring additional protection. It also offers excellent sustainability credentials as it comprises 65-90% recycled material content (limited only by the availability of scrap), offers low thermal conductivity and is 100% recyclable at the end of a long, often maintenance-free, service life.
The Ancon range of stainless steel reinforcement is the most comprehensive available with several grades, including high proof strength material, being available from stock.
The Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne offices will close at 12:00pm on Friday 21st December 2018 and re-open at 8:30am on Wednesday 2nd January 2019. The Perth office will close at 12:00pm on Friday 21st December 2018 and re-open at 8:30am on Monday 7th January 2019.
Ancon is a proud sponsor of the 5th International fib Congress taking place in Melbourne, Australia, from 7th to 11th October and expecting to attract 700 delegates from over 40 countries.
