Jinyu Award

BlueScope Steel Suzhou


BlueScope Steel Suzhou is located in the northeast of the first-rate planed and environmentally friendly Suzhou Industrial Park. The buildings are composed of 6 sections, respectively: metal coating production workshop, color coating productionworkshop, packing and slitting workshop, warehouse, administration building,production and office building. The plant  covers an area of 250,000 square meters, about 381.62 mu, including the building area up to 55,783.2 square meters.The whole building has a magnificent outside, full of artistic feeling.




ARCHITECT: TAN & ASSOCIATES

Designer: Shanghai Electromechanical Design and Research Institute Co. , Ltd.



The project is designed in "Australian style” and the entire plant looks like a sailing ship, which is ready to ride the winds and break the waves!

With the use of the Clean COLORBOND® Steel independently developed and produced by BlueScope for the enclosure system, the project has been serviing for more than 10 years and the enclosure structure of the plant is bright as new with no corrosion, paint peeling or obvious discoloration, showing long lasting beautiful appearance of the products of BlueScope; The enclosure structure is constructed with a full set of Lysaght® products with mixed use of the various of plate types at different parts. The flexible customization design embodies the beauty of architecture.

Metal coating production workshop

The metal coating production workshop is 55 meters tall in total, with walls linked up with the roofing; 

With the use of Lysaght CUSTOM ORB® corrugated plates planked diagonally and vertically in combination, red is matched with gray;

The architectural appearance achieves combined unique stable and stylish effects while meeting the technical requirements, displaying the technology-leading industry style.



In the silver-gray area, the layout of wall panels follows the direction of the roof slope, naturally tilting down, blends the room walls into one harmonious whole, which is unique outside the common design style taking the gutter as the boundary of the housing wall; In the red area, the eaves curved naturally in an arc with a small radius to the window, coupled with the detailed drip design prevent the wall panel from being stained even if there is water flowing down directly along the roof; No-gutter design facilitates maintenance in the use and avoids the risk of water leakage in the gutter in the extreme weather conditions.



Color coating production workshop



The color coating production workshop is primarily featured by blue color, which matches the red color of the metal coating production workshop and presents a sharp contrast, to give people a strong visual impact; The highly personalized wave shape of the used Lysaght CUSTOM ORB® corrugated plates shows the plasticity of the steel plate; As for eaves curved in the unified style, column is in silver-gray.



Packing and slitting workshop

The packing and slitting workshop with dark green housing walls is connected with the main plant, bright in color and well-proportioned;It is paved with Lysaght CUSTOM ORB® corrugated plates vertically;



As for eaves curved in the unified style, column is in silver-gray, eternally renewed.


Wharf and warehouse

The warehouse and the wharf are beige and white respectively, built along water in connection with Luojiang River in the North and blended into one whole with surrounding communities;



Administration building, production and office building



Design of the roof outer eaves with a gutter;

Unique drainage design.



2 Technology

All enclosure systems of the steel structure buildings in the plant adopt BlueScope ZINCALUME® steel and Clean COLORBOND® steel. As a global leader in coated steel and technology, BlueScope ZINCALUME® steel and Clean COLORBOND® steel are the ideal solution for the enclosure system plate, which can meet unlimited design challenges.
