OSA Galleries › Additional Projects › Bell Tower, Dalby, Queensland

This bell tower was built from spotted gum with 200x200 main posts and 200x100 horizontal ties and 150x100 cross braces.

Outdoor Structures Australia fully precut the members to length and prepared all the mortice and tennons and only then was the timber treated with Tanalith Treatments ›

This ensured excellent decay resistance of the housed joints. The tower was painted in our yard after assembly and shipped fully painted. The base and roof assembly were delivered as two completed units.

Bell Tower in Place

The new bell tower at the corner of Roche and Cunningham streets was erected on Sunday morning as part of the CBD beautification program.

Technical works supervisor for Dalby Town Council, Mark Hayes, said it took about half the day to put up.

"We had to close off the intersection but fortunately everything went to plan," he said.

Four council workers were required to put the structure in place, while two massive cranes were also utilised.

The tower is eight and a half metres high with a three metre base and was built by Outdoor Structures Australia from Gatton.
