Case Study: Star Events Centre

PROFILE: KingFlor® KF70®
ARCHITECT: fitzpatrick+partners
CONTRACTOR: ICMP Steel Structures

  • 2,000m2 of KingFlor®
  • KingFlor® KF70® 1.00mm

The Project

The $100 million Star Events Centre is a 3,000 seat entertainment venue situated on the roof of the existing casino with sweeping views across Sydney Harbour and the city.

The 1,077m2 column free world-class building has been designed to host domestic and international meetings, seminars, trade shows, exhibitions and award ceremonies.

Fielders were contracted by ICMP Steel Structures and architects, fitzpatrick+partners to provide 2,000m2 of KingFlor® KF70® steel formwork for the new development.


The Solution

KingFlor® KF70® was chosen for this project due to its longer spanning capability as compared to other steel decks on the market. KF70®’s unique design with wider coverage not only saved on preparatory costs, it also meant the laying of the floor was executed faster.


The Process

KingFlor® was installed in the Star Events Centre in March 2012 with the works carried out immediately adjacent and over the operating building.


KingFlor® KF70®

Fielders KingFlor® is a revolutionary steel formwork solution ideal for complete concrete slabs in concrete and steel framed construction over lengthy spans. With a longer span and deeper profile than existing formwork systems on the market, KF70® is one of the most cost-effective solutions.

Project uses include commercial buildings, shopping centres, multi-storey buildings, multi-level carparks, and residential construction.
