Published 21 January 2015 | By BlueScope Buildings

Whether your need is beverage / syrup production, warehousing, bottling, distribution or offices – BlueScope Buildings offers a global portfolio of premier engineered building solutions that offer a wide range of design flexibility and functionality to meet your beverage business needs.

BlueScope Buildings is the global leader in engineered building solutions. Engineered building solutions are used for a wide range of building end uses, but typically are used in buildings under six stories. These are buildings custom-engineered using state of the art design technology and feature a building envelope that is designed and supplied as an integrated building system. The total design time is significantly reduced because of the use of standard sections. Our building products are manufactured in a controlled plant environment - insuring consistent global quality. We utilize proven, innovative technology and best-in-class system construction to deliver wider spans and heavier loads, with excellent durability and top weather tightness.

Engineered building solutions are a cost-competitive solution to address the needs of the beverage market. We will work with you to understand all aspects of your business processes - bays/modules, process and conveyor equipment, insurance requirements, erection sequencing, erectability - and then design an optimal framing solution to meet your building needs. We're able to bring hybrid building solutions to the table, utilizing engineered building systems and conventional design elements to provide the best solution. Our buildings have the ability for expandable endwalls that can help address capacity expansion when you need it. Our buildings can be designed to accommodate heavy loads that ultimately can support your manufacturing process requirements. Our buildings can also be oriented around racking / storage systems - usually independent of the frame design. And with building footprints that range from 500 to 25,000sq m+ - we have a wide range of solutions that can meet the range of your facility needs

Many of the world's global beverage companies are concerned about protecting the environment. And many leading brands recognize that a green building strategy is a further extension of their brand image. BlueScope Buildings is dedicated to sustainability. The primary benefit of sustainable construction is a reduction in energy costs and reduction of raw materials used. It also is from a more comfortable and healthier work environment and reduced total building operating cost:

  • Energy efficiency - we offer cool roof and wall paints providing solar reflectivity. We also offer daylighting systems / translucent panels that can reduce total lighting expenses by up to 70%
  • Experience and understanding of LEED design criteria - four of the six categories outlined by LEED that contribute to sustainability are applicable to BlueScope Buildings
  • Reduced materials usage - our design minimizes the use of construction materials.

When 10% of a building's lifetime cost is in the construction budget, but 90% of the total cost of building ownership is in the operating budget - total building operating cost because an important factor when considering building companies to align with. Focusing on TBOC is a smart way to approach your building's budget. Our systems construction approach is designed to optimize your building envelope.

  • Value engineering ensures an optimal use of building materials. Factory punched panels and bolted connections make assembly faster.
  • Our design-build construction approach helps insure you get to market quicker.
  • We offer a portfolio of energy efficient roof and wall systems to help reduce operating costs.
  • Our buildings have long life cycles and require little maintenance.
  • We have proven results: A global retailer revealed a $0.000019 per square meter annual roof maintenance cost on 2.6 million sq. m of their distribution centers.

With a global footprint that includes 17 manufacturing facilities on four continents, our ability to deliver is unsurpassed. We work with many multinational corporations looking for strategic relationships that transcend the traditional supplier vendor model when planning and executing projects. We can offer centralized program management, through a dedicated team, that leverages the strength of our regional business units that are focused on production, engineering and detailing, and the manufacturing and shipping of your building solution. This provides customers with access to regional engineering resources and consistency in global proposals and business practices and facilities. BlueScope Buildings can also offer a single source for warranties, workmanship, paint finishes and weather tightness (on select building products). As your single source provider, we will work to get as much of the project under one contract to help increase oversight, improve visibility and minimize import duties. (where applicable)

We have the experience to make your next global construction project a balance of international coordination and local expertise. Please visit our website: www.bluescopebuildings.com.
