PROJECT EXAMPLES

ARCHITECTURAL STEELWORK

APS was awarded a steelwork package that required the design, drafting and engineering of custom steel stairwells within a large, high profile commercial building with specific architectural, coating, and fixing requirements.

The APS innovative design was accepted, and APS was engaged to fabricate all stairwell sections, brackets, fixings and connectors which was completed on time and on budget. APS managed the coatings contractor, and our rigging teams & mechanical teams installed each structure with a perfect safety record.

ENGINEERED ACCESS PLATFORMS

APS is a leader in the design, manufacture and installation of Australian compliant building access systems and engineered, permanent access structures, completing hundreds of designs and installs across the commercial infrastructure, power generation and oil and gas sectors to date.

This specialist APS service is supported by our in-house fabrication facilities, site-based rigging, and steel erection and mechanical, teams providing a turnkey solution to our customers.

RMIT NAS BUILDING

APS designed, engineered, fabricated and installed various steel elements for the RMIT NAS building for our client Lend Lease Building.

The project entailed design and install of all miscellaneous steel work, full façade steel for the green building, shop front steel and glass, seating bays, lighting trusses, window pods, glazing and skylights, public stairs and feature ceilings.

This required the full suite of welding, fabrication, mechanical, rigging and scaffold supply, erect and dismantle to complete the project on time and safely.

MELBOURNE CENTRAL

APS was engaged to design, engineer and provide options for all steel work and finishes for the Melbourne central shopping centre. On final design selection, APS managed the selected contractors for custom and speciality finishes on the steelwork which fabricated at the APS facility. On completion of the fabrication and finishing, APS managed the logistics and full installation which required a unprecedented level of care and precision to ensure a perfect end product. APS riggers and welders successfully installed 3 levels of architectural steel work and ceilings during nights so that the shopping mall could be kept open for patrons during the day.
