The initial State winners in the lead up to Australia’s first national steel awards were announced for NSW and ACT at official presentations held at Star City, Pyrmont on 27 June.

The ASI accolades were awarded to entrants in four categories of Architectural Steel Design, Structural Engineering Design, Metal Building Product Design and Multi-Level Building Design, with winners in the first three categories to vie for the national honours to be announced in September in Perth.

Kingston Building’s entry on St. John the Baptist Catholic Church building in Woy Woy was named the winning project for that project team in the Architectural Steel Design category.

The NSW Structural Engineering Design category was won by Arup’s entry on behalf of the project team behind the Allianz Centre redevelopment at 2 Market Street in Sydney’s CBD.

Brookfield Multiplex’s submission on the Latitude East building development at World Square in Goulburn Street, Sydney topped the Multi-Level Steel Building category for that project team.

The RAAF Liquid Oxygen Extraction (LOX) facility in Richmond won in the Metal Building Product Design category based on the entry from project team architects, Campbell Luscombe Folk Lichtman.

ASI State Manager – NSW & ACT, Phil Casey said the nature of entries well portrayed the diversity of innovative applications possible using predominantly Australian-made steel. “The awards highlight the high standard of design and execution achievable with the versatility of steel, aesthetics and the industry’s capacities and efficiencies,” he said. Winners of the other state awards will be announced in coming months – Victoria (25 July), South Australia (15 August), Queensland (22 August), and Western Australia (15 September).
