The Barcelona Tower

The Constructionarium Australia pilot program was launched on 29 August 2016 and ran for five days at the USQ Springfield campus, with early-career engineers from BMD, Aurecon and TMR working together to construct a nine-metre tall replica of the Barcelona TV Tower.

The second challenge by Constructionarium Australia, the scaled-down replica of the Story Bridge was built by eighteen students and recent graduates under the guidance of several industry veterans.
