HISTAR® king post columns to support the building

ArcelorMittal Europe – Long Products have supplied, through Eurostructures, 350 tonnes of HISTAR®columns to be installed as king posts into bored piles as part of the foundations of the resort. Our king post columns have been supplied to Piling Contractors Bauer Australia Joint Venture, specialist contractors for the foundations, via steel constructor J Steel, who has been representing ArcelorMittal in Australia and in the Australasia region for many years.

Our king posts, made from HISTAR® S460M steel, produced in Luxembourg, were installed into piles, drilled into the bedrock, to support the weight of the podium above. They allowed 20% weight savings and reduced sizes to simplify installation Moreover, to reduce fabrication in Australia, they were rolled in single lengths to eliminate splicing and Eurostructures cut the plunge columns to final length before shipment to Australia.

The Crown Sydney Hotel Resort has everything it takes to become a landmark building and a key tourist attraction for the city of Sydney and we are proud to participate in this project.
