Qantas Premium Lounge Upgrade

Qantas Premium Lounge Upgrade

Watkins Steel was contracted by Shape Group to supply and install steelwork as part of the refurbishment of the Qantas Premium Lounge at Brisbane International Airport. The job required structural steel for lift shaft support, stairs, landings, and support beams.


  • Complex geometric dimensions across three levels
  • Very limited access into the site



  • 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


“Working with Watkins Steel, I could be rest assured knowing that all structural steel would be delivered and installed within the construction time-frame. Watkins steel have always exceeded my expectations and are always proactive in design issues and problem solving to ensure the desired outcome is achieved. I would definitely recommend Watkins Steel in the future because I know they have the best people to take care of the job.”
