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