Steel Fabrication Certification for NZ Specifiers

The Steel Fabrication Certification (SFC) scheme introduces a mark of quality to New Zealand’s structural steel sector. It reduces the compliance risk for engineers, architects, quantity surveyors, builders, and building and infrastructure owners.

Significantly, SFC offers independent, expert certification of New Zealand fabrication companies. It provides procurers of locally fabricated structural confidence that certified fabricators have the appropriate personnel and procedures in place to consistently produce work of the required quality.

Today, SFC is transitioning to become a compulsory requirement – all Steel Construction New Zealand (SCNZ) fabricators will be certified by 2020.

What’s more, a new Fabrication and Erection (AS/NZS 5131) Standard has been published. Once adopted in New Zealand, it will provide a standards framework for the technical and quality requirements of the SFC scheme. SFC will help identify fabricators capable of meeting the requirements of this new standard.

Safer Cycle Bridges for the Bay

Patton Engineering’s work on the cycle/walkway clip-on to Crosses Road Bridge in Havelock North and the Waitangi Bridge at Awatoto are prime examples of the diversity of work we undertake.

We have also recently been involved in the construction of three other smaller bridges, and although this is a new type of project for us, involvement in bridge construction is an area we are now looking to explore further.

As well as broadening our expertise, it’s always great to be a part of projects like this where there is so much benefit to our community.
