Fabrication Design

We find better ways by investing the time to develop and apply new technology. And we have a passion for providing value engineering through leading edge innovation and progressive solutions that maximise efficiencies.

Our Fabrication Department uses Tekla Structures software to offer clients complete documentation for their project build. By offering this service in house our clients benefit by having comprehensive quality control integrated with superior coordination across all departments that their project requires.

Our services include

  • Reduce 99% of errors onsite
  • Full reinforcing bar scheduling for all precast and insitu items including foundations
  • The ability to output full reports (every bolt, screw and plate in the whole project)
  • Complete clash detection ability
  • Change detection from other IFC model (Architectural changes are highlighted)
  • Extremely accurate modelling of projects including all bolts, plates, welds, holes and reinforcing bars

We save clients' time and aggravation by troubleshooting in house which means resolutions are much faster and directed immediately to the Design Department team. Our clients gain significant value by utilising our Fabrication Department in conjunction with our other departments of Project Management, Design, Quantity Surveying and BIM.
