Editorial information

Welcome to STEEL PROFILE® 124

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

BlueScope is a longstanding supporter of architectural excellence. This is our 31st year as Principal Corporate Partner of the Australian Institute of Architects and we continue our support of the Institute's endeavours to foster industry change and improve the built environment.

Across the country architects are working on projects of all scales and types – from bespoke houses to city-shaping infrastructure. The boundless design possibilities that BlueScope building products offer, matches this diversity and transformative capacity.

As the world changes BlueScope is constantly innovating, responding to the changing needs of architects, community expectations and industry benchmarks. We have reorganised the way we engage with the profession day-to-day through the introduction of specification experts in every Australian state and territory.

We look forward to working with you to develop the best building solutions for your projects no matter how big or small or where they are located.

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.
