4Site Engineers Congratulates Jonathan Dowling & Kingfield Fabrications on ASI Steel Excellence Award

18 July 2014

MELBOURNE - 4Site Engineers extends congratulations to Jonathan Dowling and Kingfield Fabrications for receiving the Australian Steel Institute (ASI) award for Steel Excellence for their SAFEONSITE Modular Portable Building. 4Site Engineers are proud to be associated with such a revolutionary project. 

Held every two years, the ASI conducts the award program that promotes excellence in the steel industry. They are designed to highlight the high standard of design and execution achievable with steel as the prime building material. The Awards showcase the versatility of steel and the Australian steel industry's capabilities.

Presented at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne on 4 July, the Steel Excellence Awards for Victoria and Tasmania had a record number of 31 entries. The Special Judge's Award went to Kingfield Fabrications for their in-house developed flat pack modular building system, SAFEONSITE. The judging criteria included; Overall Design Merit, Construction Efficiency, Environmental Sustainability and Buildability.

SAFEONSITE is a prefabricated, flat pack, portable and modular site building that has many applications. It can be used for storage, as a workshop, as a pedestrian tunnel or for any other application that requires security and weather protection. 

One significant issue for aid agencies in refugee situations is the safe storage and transfer of medicines. SAFEONSITE was developed to address this need by providing a large, secure, relocatable building which trucks can drive through for loading and unloading.  The frame is galvanized steel and the walls are 15mm thick polyethylene making it extremely strong and durable. Because it can be flat packed quickly it can be easily moved to respond to changing conditions.

The features built into SAFEONSITE are also very valuable for many other demanding environments.  Industrial situations like mining and construction sites or railway and road maintenance projects have similar needs for security, shelter and access.  After developing the product for international relief Kingfield has adapted the design to suit industrial conditions and remote Australian locations.  

About SAFEONSITE - Kingfield Galvanizing

SAFEONSITE was created by Jonathan Dowling based on his years of experience with humanitarian relief operations. Jonathan joined forces with Kingfield Fabrications in October 2012 and have since worked together to make SAFEONSITE the best flat pack modular building available.
