Fielders Steel Roofing was engaged by the architect and contractor to supply 2000 square metres of KingFlor KF70 steel formwork towards installing a new floor at the $100 million Star Events Centre in Sydney.

A 3,000-seat entertainment venue situated on the roof of the existing casino, the Star Events Centre offers sweeping views across Sydney Harbour and the city. Designed as a column-free structure, the 1,077-square-metre world-class building hosts domestic and international meetings, seminars, tradeshows, exhibitions and award ceremonies.

KingFlor KF70 was chosen for the flooring due to its longer spanning capability in comparison with other steel decks on the market, the unique design giving it wider coverage. This not only saved on preparatory costs for the client but also allowed the installation to be completed faster.

KingFlor was installed in the Star Events Centre in March 2012.
