Looking Over Architectural Plans


Professionals in steel - detail, fabricate, erect

Steelpoint Fabrication is a structural steel fabricator.

In brief....

“we are a team of professionals capable of”;

  • In house Fabrication of Light, Medium and Heavy structural + Light Steel Frames.

  • In house design and detailing using TEKLA

  • In house processing capability for all structural section and plates.

  • In house blasting and painting

  • Rigging & Erection

Details – Structural steel fabrication

Steelpoint Fabrication is a business focused on the fabrication and erection of structural steel assemblies to the commercial building sector. Working closely with the services of CDE we are able to deliver professional & quality fabrication services.

Our principles include the following

  • Source high quality materials – Steel, consumable, Fasteners and coating materials

  • Use best practice shop drawing and detailing to provide accurate and complete data to our team

  • Employ tradespeople and highly proficient operators to deliver a quality product – on time, in full.

  • Have a culture of constant improvement, constant development and best quality.

  • Continual best practice principles – Production Management, Quality Management, Safety Management.

  • We can process all section of structural member – from merchant bar to welded beams and every section between.

  • In house plate profiling – using plasma and oxy fuel depending on the thickness and design

  • Fabrication and welding – We use predominately GMAW for light / Med projects and FCAW-G for heavy fab.

  • In house blast and paint – Generally class 2.5 blast and Zinc Phosphate primer. We can also apply IZ and 2 pack systems.

  • Erection and site services – from the chemsets to last purlin bolt and everything inbetween. What we cant manage with our own crane and work platforms we only engage the safest and best crane companies for project support.

Details – Design and Drafting (www.centraldesign.com.au)

Central Design & Engineering are a mechanical design and drafting company. We do all our design and drafting in 3D and currently have 6 TEKLA licences. Structural steel drafting and modelling is one of our main areas of work.

We have found the 3D model is an excellent communication device when it comes to co-ordination between disciplines on a large project. We have completed many large scale projects with and we feel our model based approach to structural steel detailing is providing major benefits to all parties involved in the project.

The advantages of this approach are numerous, but broadly they are:

  • Early engagement allows modelling and detailing to begin while architectural and engineering design are still underway..  

  • The model becomes a source of information for all disciplines on the project, highlighting potential problem areas between architectural detail and structural steel detail as the design evolves.

  • The model can be emailed, viewed (rotate, zoom and walkthru), and marked up by any party in the project without the need for special software.

  • The structural steel workshop drawings are largely created automatically from the model.
