In order to meet the rising demand for steel fabrication, Transfield set up workshops, similar to the one at Seven Hills, at Newcastle and Port Kembla in NSW, Brisbane and Mt Isa in Queensland, Whyalla in South Australia and Kwinana in Western Australia. By 1978, Seven Hills was producing nearly 20,000 tonnes of fabricated steel a year, and 80,000 by 1988.

As Franco Belgiorno-Nettis claimed in 1987, "Transfield has been helping in building transmission lines and power stations. That is the nerve of any civilised community in Australia".
