Korvest Galvanisers , an ISO9001 quality certified company that completes all galvanising work to the AS/NZS4680:2006 standard was recently awarded a high commendation at Intergalva in Paris 2012.
The latest award recognised Korvest for the completion of an impressive piece of architectural steel fabrication galvanised at their Kilburn site just north of Adelaide. Korvest was also runner up in the 2011 Sorel Galvanizing awards for the same project.
This particular project involved the galvanising of 42 tonnes of mild steel for the front façade of Manuele Engineers’ new head office building in South Australia. Key consideration was given not just to the physical quality of the job but also the visual attractiveness and assembly compatibility for the 2-part panels that needed to be slotted together at the construction site.
Manuele’s new office building has a striking appearance thanks to the new steel façade. The galvanised steel finish is better than a painted finish as it not only ensures long lasting protection against corrosion but also provides a welcome contrast against the rest of the construction.
