Linear Roofing Services Pty Ltd, Golden Grove
42,000 square metre wine facility
A South Australian roofing company formed just five years ago is completing a massive project at Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley for Fosters Wine Estates. Linear Roofing Services Pty Ltd of Golden Grove has maintained its strong growth rate by using a combination of experienced staff and quality products to tackle progressively larger jobs.
The new 42,000 square metre Wolf Blass facility for Fosters Wine Estates includes a bottling hall, warehouse facilities, plant rooms, workshops and a tasting area.
Extensive use of roofing and wall cladding materials supplied by BlueScope Lysaght is a feature of the latest addition to Australia's booming wine industry.
The building is taking shape on a site adjacent to the existing Wolf Blass winery, adding extra capacity for a brand enjoying success in Australia and overseas.
"This is the biggest project and the first regional one which we have taken on since the company began operations," Linear Roofing Managing Director, Peter Wegener said. "We started out with just nine employees but we now have 65 and the future looks pretty bright."
Mr Wegener said the Wolf Blass facility provided a challenge for his company not just because of the size of the building, but because of its end use and proximity to a famous wine region tourist venue.
"When you are growing and taking on larger and more significant projects you need to have complete confidence in your suppliers," he said.
"You need the quality of the steel cladding to allow your workforce to produce a result that meets the client's expectations. BlueScope Lysaght have supplied nearly 65,000 square metres of roofing and walling products for this job. Their delivery reliability and their willingness to provide support when we have needed it have been first rate. That has allowed us to concentrate on the cladding job and to ensure that our reputation continues to grow."
The huge warehouse is roofed in LYSAGHT TRIMDEK® profile rollformed from ZINCALUME® steel and also has ceilings clad in LYSAGHT TRIMDEK® profile rollformed from ZINCALUME® steel. Wall cladding is LYSAGHT TRIMDEK® profile in the COLORBOND® steel colours Paperbark® and Ironstone®.
LYSAGHT TRIMDEK® is a subtle, square fluted steel cladding profile. The fluting in the pans provides strength and long spanning capabilities. Its good looks provide an economic roofing option for contemporary style homes as well suiting industrial and commercial roofing and wall cladding applications.
