Galvanize 77 – Galvanizing Projects

The hot dip galvanized (HDG) treatment of the building frame and racking of an innovative dry storage facility for watercraft on a flood prone site at Sydney’s Rozelle Bay topped this year’s Sorel Awards presented annually by the Galvanizers Association of Australia (GAA).

The largest undercover dry berthing storage facility of its kind in Australia, vessels are all accommodated in HDG steel racks that can carry up to 10 tonnes per cavity space.

GAA Life Members, Colin Bain and Mike Dennett kindly returned as award judges, between them bringing over 60 years of galvanizing industry related experience and nous to the deliberations.

As only the second multi-company entry in the history of the Sorel Awards, in choosing this entry the judges recognised that extensive consultation and communication was required between all players involved in the project for a successful outcome and welcomed the collaboration between two erstwhile galvanizing industry competitors.
