 Words from the Fabricator:

“I wish to acknowledge Steelcad Drafting in their performance and delivery of Shop Detail Drawings without fault on Woolworths Rothwell. When receiving Free Issue Drawings, its always a concern as you never know what you are going to get and there is an element of risk associated with them. The project went smoothly and was hassle free in terms of shop queries and on-site fit-up. I can’t remember running a job when the only variation was due to someone damaging an item.”

We were engaged by McVeigh to work in an IPD framework, whereby collaboratively we would 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.
