Stronghold Fabrications Pty Ltd stock and supply all steel sections for home-renovating projects from small to large; and specialise in fabricating to meet your exact requirements, install and deliver Sydney-wide. They are conveniently based at Wetherill Park, just moments away from the M7; and draw on their long experience in the industrial and commercial sectors to provide all structural steel services for residential builders, home-renovating projects and DIY home-renovators.
Residential structural steel requirements can vary from a basic single beam, to a complex multi-level structure. To ensure every project requirement is fulfilled, Stronghold follows proven project-management procedures from the initial enquiry through to project completion. For material quantities and section sizes, architectural and structural drawings are required. They then review the extent of the structural steel to ascertain the individual project requirements; then raise any questions or cost saving opportunities with each client/customer. Following this they produce a detailed quotation showing a full itemised breakdown of the project-costs. After the client’s acceptance of the quote Stronghold then agrees upon a timetable for the workshop drawings, fabrication and installation where required.
CAD detailing is done by their experienced in-house draftsman using Tekla Structures. They then piece together the requirements for both the Architect and Engineer; any conflicting information is dealt with by way of an RFI [request for information], which is directed to the client/customer; who then liaises with the Architect and Engineer to formulate a favourable response. Upon completion of the workshop drawings the draftsman submits a detailed package of these drawings for the Architect and Structural Engineer to review. Following receipt of approvals the draftsman finalizes the “For Construction Drawings” to be issued to Stronghold’s experienced tradesman in their workshop.
Procurement of materials; processing of plates and members; and workshop-fabrication then commences. Upon completion the project receives an application of a protective coating: either with Hot Dip Galvanising; shop priming with grey zinc phosphate; or a combination of both. If the project includes installation it is carried out by qualified riggers and onsite welders, sometimes working in conjunction with the carpenters on those occasions where structural steel and timber framing is interconnected.
After the structural steel package has been completed it is ready for following Tradies to commence their works.
