Running its steel design awards every year didn’t deter the ASI in Queensland from turning out yet another dazzling program in 2010 with winning projects spanning the gamut from a modest owner-builder abode in touch with its environs to a number of massive steel-intensive projects.

The awards were bestowed at a special dinner event held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Friday, 20 August. ASI State Manager, John Gardner said that there is no shortage of steel projects to boast with the wide array of quality entries submitted, a total of 46 entries. “There’s no doubt that Queensland is one of Australia’s most vibrant economic regions judging by the plethora of stunning projects that vied for position,” he said. “It’s very encouraging that the GFC and public policy uncertainty in the lead-up to the Federal election didn’t seem to deter awards participation up here.”

The owner-built Steendyk Home+Studio won in the Architectural Steel Building Design stakes.

The Kurilpa Bridge in Brisbane topped the Structural Engineering Steel Building Design category for Arup whilst Bucyrus won for the Lake Lindsay Drag Line facility in Engineering Project Structural Engineering Steel Design – Infrastructure & Mining.

In Steel Clad Structures Building Design, the AIICS Multi Purpose Hall project topped the class.
