Featured Case Studies
A collection of Australian Steel Innovations
Steelwork is the predominant material being used to construct the interchange between the Queensland Gold Coast new light rail and conventional heavy gauge railway at Helensvale for speed of erection during short railway shutdowns, aesthetics for what is expected to be a busy transit hub and to accommodate large-span requirements common to passenger rail buildings.
The Adelaide Entertainment Centre utilises a slender steel structure to create three distinct forms, allowing long spans to be held up with minimal supports. The use of structural steel becomes an aesthetic feature, particularly in the dome area, which is enhanced by an innovative lighting display.
Sydney's magnificent Scots Church building has been given a new lease on life as the Portico luxury apartment complex. The $110 million redevelopment preserves the original structure and façade in a fusion of the old with the new, while accommodating a new steel-framed residential extension above the heritage building.
