Editorial information

Welcome to STEEL PROFILE® Magazine

We are, as always, proud to bring our readers a collection of the finest steel architecture in the country and some insights into the adventurous, creative minds behind it.

It is telling that every major project featured in this issue has been recently recognised with a prestigious award. This includes many 2015 Australian Institute of Architects state Awards and COLORBOND® Awards for Steel Architecture. Congratulations to the architects.

This year saw BlueScope's support for the Australian Institute of Architects as its Principal Corporate Partner reach 30 years, a milestone we celebrated at the National Architecture Conference in Melbourne, which explored the theme of risk.

The architectural profession is compelled to flirt with risk, to be daring and take a leap of faith in design in order to create something special and unique.

We approach risk through the products and product solutions we supply. We recognise we have a key role to play in risk-mitigation, by designing compliant products and solutions that support innovation in the architectural profession and contribute to its advancement.

Every project is different and not all products are suitable for all applications, projects and environments. Some products may perform better than others in certain applications and conditions. You should confirm the suitability of particular products for your project by contacting the supplier directly and by obtaining information and advice specific to your circumstances.

BlueScope generally recommends the use of COLORBOND® steel or ZINCALUME® steel for the majority of external cladding applications. BlueScope recommends routine preventative maintenance for eaves and other “unwashed areas” of structures that may not be regularly cleaned by rainfall.
