We were engaged by Lancini Constructions to work in an IPD framework, whereby we would work with the Engineer Bornhorst and Ward to deliver the builder Shop Detail dwgs and reports earlier than could be expected under traditional workflow methods. Material reports were used in the Tender process to give a more accurate representation of the steelwork tonnage and precast sq/m, in order for the   builder to obtain sharper pricing from subcontractors.

This project was an extension to an existing shopping centre in Townsville. The KMart extension had some interface with existing structure and we were able to make use of an existing model for interfacing.

This project was delivered after the exposure the builder had with the Rejects Shop extension. They liked the result on the Rejects and gave the go ahead for IPD to be used on Kmart.
