Image for Award-winning projects benefit from Liberty Metalcentre collaboration

Sydney’s Westconnex was one of several projects supplied by Liberty Metalcentre to win at the ASI’s ACT/NSW 2018 Steel Awards.

Liberty Metalcentre’s contribution to three award-winning projects has been recognised at the Australian Steel Institute (ASI)’s ACT/NSW 2018 Steel Awards.

The winner of the Buildings: Large Projects Awards category was named as a 10,000sqm private art storage facility in Alexandria constructed by Infinity Constructions Group, with steel supplied by Liberty Metalcentre’s Wollongong branch to the project’s fabricator DJD Fabrications.

Winner of the award in the Buildings: Small Projects category was the new state-of-the-art Manly Andrew ‘Boy’ Charlton Aquatic Centre constructed by FDC Construction & Fitout, with fabrication by Apollo Fabrication Group.

Delivered over 18 months, the project includes a 3500sqm pool hall with three pools and a 2000sqm multi-storey building with office space, gym facilities, amenities and crèche. Liberty Metalcentre’s Wetherill Park branch supplied processed structural steel to Apollo Fabrications for the project.

The WestConnex Concord Road to M4 West On-Ramp won the award in the Engineering category. The project was constructed by CPB Samsung John Holland (CSJ) and supplied with structural steel by Liberty Metalcentre Wetherill Park.

The scale and complexity of the project required Liberty Steel’s project manager to be embedded on site to best assess the needs of the project and deliver solutions. Detailed and intricate drawings were developed, requiring an upgrade to Liberty’s computer programmes to ensure precision engineering of welded beams to tight tolerances, and to enable bulk processing to meet the fast-turnaround delivery requirements of the project.

Liberty Steel congratulates all the winners of this year’s ASI ACT/NSW 2018 Steel Awards.
