BlueScope Buildings – Global Leader in Engineered Building Solutions

BlueScope Buildings is the global leader in engineered building solutions. These are custom-engineered buildings using state-of-the-art design technology and feature a building envelope that is designed and supplied as an integrated building system. The total design time is significantly reduced because of the use of standard sections. Our building products are manufactured in a controlled plant environment – ensuring consistent global quality.

We utilize proven, innovative technology and best-in-class system construction to deliver wider spans and heavier loads, with excellent durability and top weather tightness. Engineered building solutions are used for a wide range of building end uses, but typically are used in buildings under six stories. They also are capable of being expanded.

Affordable building solutions designed to meet beverage market building needs


Our engineered building solutions are complete solutions, including design, detailing, drawings, manufacturing and warranty. These buildings have several features that set them apart from conventional structures:

  • Rigid frame, which our Butler© brand introduced to the construction industry in 1940
  • Ability to place steel where needed, maximizing efficient use of materials
  • Weathertight roofing systems
  • Three-plate tapered beams and columns to replace traditional use of hot-rolled sections
  • Custom-engineered with automated design systems
  • Solar reflective, durable paints used on our roof and wall systems
  • Speed of construction - that allows you to get into your building quicker
  • Buildings designed to accommodate future expansion
  • Low maintance

A business unit of BlueScope (ASX:BSL), headquartered in Australia, BlueScope Buildings is dedicated to delivering more than just building solutions - rather, we focus on a total customer experience that results in greater confidence and peace of mind for our customers. This is particularly important for project managers at multinational corporations, who are often managing global expansion in a wide variety of locations and, increasingly, in emerging and frontier markets.

In the beverage sector, we are well positioned to act as a global single source building provider; having past global experience in the design, manufacture and construct of bottling facilities, beverage warehouses, distribution centers and offices.

Align with BlueScope buildings

Aligning with BlueScope Buildings, through a single-source of supply, can minimize transactional complexity compared with a conventional plan-bid-spec approach. By skipping the conventional procurement process, you can avoid having to pay for engineering design twice and save valuable time in your schedule. This process can also help to reduce a client's risk and allow them to focus on areas of their own core competency. Your building is on the critical path.

Safety focus

Lower total building operating cost

While price is what you pay at the time you buy your product, in our view total cost is what you ultimately spend. Cost is about bottom line, but the real results you'll see from our BlueScope Buildings are service, safety, quality, innovation and speed, which together equate to a lower total building operating cost.

Leveraging our history, our expertise in design, manufacturing and project management and our ever-growing global footprint, our global buildings business offers the strategic support and peace of mind that multinational leaders need to establish your company - with confidence - wherever your business needs take you.
