We manage every aspect of the fabrication and construction process, from initial scheme design, through detailing, specification and manufacture to the eventual handover to our clients of a quality product on-site.
The design process offers our clients innovative concepts and solutions. We are able to offer ‘value engineering’ through the close guidance of our consulting engineers at the concept of the project and with the assistance of the latest state-of-the-art computer software for 2-D and 3-D building information modelling (‘BIM’), analysis and design.
Our advice on material choices, fabrication, fire protection, surface treatment and construction techniques can often lead to significant project savings and efficiencies.
Our engineers are also involved in temporary works to suit site construction and buildability issues. Working closely with the Group’s in-house construction team, we ensure the most efficient and safest solutions for our clients’ needs. This expertise is essential for high-rise towers and other complex structures undertaken by the Group.
The Group’s fabrication facilities include expansive stockyard areas and in-line cutting, fabrication, welding and painting and some of the largest finished goods and sub-assembly areas in the industry.
Operational investment has been significant and continuous over the years, with many innovative features being developed and incorporated. Modern, state-of-the-art processing equipment has been employed with full consideration for design, supporting layout, logistics, integration and construction. Our equipment is fed with numerical control data which optimises output and minimises waste and errors.
The FABSEC® production line at Dalton is a fully self-contained production facility. The process provides the structural steelwork sector with a full range of highly efficient plated sections, optimal section profiles and shop-applied intumescent coatings.
The Group has its own highly trained construction workforce which provides services for all of its construction requirements. Working closely with the project management team, they are leaders in steel construction and utilise the latest equipment on-site. The Group is an industry leader in construction methodology.
The Group also has a large and highly experienced contract management team. Each contract manager is the single point of contact with each client and is supported by all resources within the Group. Our contract managers engage with our clients and the supply chain to ensure optimum communication and performance in all aspects of the project, including site construction and administration.
