Alex Spillett, Industrial Galvanizers (Australia)
The redevelopment of the Star City Casino (now known as ‘The Star’) beside Sydney’s Darling Harbour is a recent application of Hot-Dip Galvanized (HDG) steel in a high profile project. The use of architecturally exposed structural steel is becoming increasingly popular, and was a key design feature of the new Multi Use Entertainment Facility. Given the nature of the design and the high building utilization, a resilient coating was required. HDG from Industrial Galvanizers was chosen as the project required a corrosion protection system that would remain maintenance-free for at least 10 years. The durable nature of the HDG coating ensures it will exceed the warranty period, providing a maintenance-free service you can bet on!
