With an award-winning track record, Structural Challenge is committed to working on private and community projects, with an emphasis on Health and Education projects.

“The Leaders in complex steel fabrication solutions”


“To be the Leading Steel Fabrication Company built on alliances; where builders & developers have as their 1st choice, consultants recommend to their clients, suppliers support and employees are proud to be a part of.”



Health and Safety is not just about filling out forms; we always take compliance and safety obligations one step further. From weekly training and updates to regular OH&S training courses, KPIs and performance matrices and professional development, all SC training is reinforced by the SC values we call ‘PERCS’.


SC’s internal quality system involves specific procedures undertaken from tender submission through to completion of the project. During fabrication, the workshop follows strict quality control procedures including material dimensioning, welding, painting, and delivery checks. Site quality procedures are designed to ensure the project meets plans and specifications, as well as the client’s approval and satisfaction.


SC has established a reputation as a leading Green Star fabricator.

SC is a member of the Australian Steel Institute Sustainability Charter and have successfully delivered Green Star buildings over the past few years.

SC’s sustainability commitment extends through all aspects of our business including our Environmental Management Systems. These systems set targets to ensure there is a continual focus on sustainability. Structural Challenge successfully delivered the Monash University Green Chemicals building. This project won the company the Australian Steel Institute Fabricator’s award in 2015 and recognises sustainable best practise.
