BlueScope’s Xi’an plant has won the Luban construction project prize. The award, presented by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the China Construction Industry Association, recognises the highest quality in building architecture and engineering.

Receiving this award not only recognises the quality of the Xi’an facility, but also demonstrates BlueScope’s strong capability in building innovative, green buildings for customers, and reinforces our market leadership position in China’s steel building market.

The Xi'an facility, officially opened in October 2013, demonstrates how premium steel buildings support sustainable green building technology. A custom engineered building commissioned with BlueScope roofing and walling systems, the facility is China's first three-star green industrial building, which is the highest environmental rating available in that country. It also won a LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) gold award from the US Green Building Council.  More
