The Australian Nation Construction Review has long been celebrated as Australia’s leading publication for major construction projects.
The Construction Review aims to showcase the most impressive major developments in the construction industry, and we are proud to announce that Steel Fabrication Services has been featured in their latest issue.
The article focuses on one of our recently completed works in which we used 43.53 for a number of small, yet impressive projects for St Augustine’s College.
It is an honour to featured in the Construction Review which is a trusted source of information for many major construction companies, developers, investors, town planners, architects, engineers, building consultants, product suppliers, major subcontractors, building associations, and the Australian government.

Steel Fabrication Services is a highly accomplished steel contractor delivering comprehensive and cost-effective steel fabrication solutions to the commercial, residential, industrial and retail sectors in Sydney and throughout regional New South Wales. Steel Fabrication Services provided St Augustine’s College with the requisite steel fabrication solutions for the refurbishment and extension of the Brimson Centre at the school.
Managing Director, Michael Simos said his company designed, manufactured and installed steel for shelf angles, lower and upper internal atrium stairs, fire separation angles, main entry beam, Level 2 spandrels, external fire stair, west spandrel louvre supports and a shade structure in the BBQ area.
The shelf angles provided structural strength to the building and some were part of the architectural integrity and visible as they formed part of the building’s fascia, but most were concealed within internal walls and not visible once the building was complete. Most of the steelwork on this project is concealed within the building finishes, but the external fire stair was exposed and required special design and manufacturing considerations to eliminate corrosion from rusting in a salt water environment.
A total of 43.53 tonnes of steel supplied to this project requiring different surface treatments, including a project specific Dulux three coat High Build Recoatable Polyurethane system for the external fire stairs. “It was a challenging assignment as it had a high level of architectural design throughout, but with a combination of sound design, careful planning and good communication with the architect, engineer and builder we were able to deliver all requirements in a timely manner and meet the specifications with top quality steel products.”
As with all work carried out by Steel Fabrication Services, quality was paramount on the project. All work was rigorously inspected before and after fabrication in the company’s factory and after installation. Senior Estimator and Project Manager, Paul Dinsdale resolved any major architectural and engineering design issues, using practical steel manufacturing and installation solutions.
Providing strict adherence to ‘old school’ drawing, fabrication and management procedures, enables Steel Fabrication Services to eliminate substandard workshop drawings which cause escalating manufacturing costs and onsite installation problems.
