Mixed Use Development

Mixed Use Development

Watkins Steel was contracted by Constructions Group to fabricate and install the awnings, plant framing, roof top terrace framing, and screen frames for this Mixed Use Development in South Bank. The job also required Watkins Steel to work in collaboration with Constructions Group to design and detail all steelwork before construction commenced.

Challenges

  • Design & construct project
  • Accurate installation to ensure no damage was made to the  top coat paint on the steelwork
  • Tight construction frame

 

Solutions

  • Faro Focus 3D X 130 Laser Scanner
  • Telka Structures 3D Modeling Software
  • 3D point cloud model to check for clashes
  • Voortman V808 Coping Machine
  • Trimble RTS773 Total Station for site layout

 

“The Watkins drafting team were invaluable contributors on this project as they were able to foresee the majority of construction issues when designing and detailing the steelwork required for this job. By working with Watkins Steel to get the design right in the early stages, we achieved a stellar outcome with all our structural steel and metalwork components.”
