Our Process

Our Process

Stronghold has been built on dedication, hard work and attention to detail, allowing us to deliver steel solutions that exceed the expectations of our clients.

We make steel easy by handling the entire process, from drafting through to delivery.

All projects fabricated in the Stronghold workshop go through a routine of quality checks at each stage. We make sure that every step of the way work is adhering to design documentation, tolerances and workmanship.

All of this happens at our Workshop in Wetherill Park in Western Sydney. Our workshop has been designed to provide the most efficiency whilst maintaining the highest standards in quality and workmanship.

Our Process:

To ensure all project requirements are met and fulfilled, we follow strict procedures from the initial enquiry through to project completion.

  1. For material quantities and section sizes, Architectural and Structural drawings are required.
  2. We review the extent of the structural steel to ascertain the individual project requirements and raise any questions or cost saving solutions with the customer.
  3. We then provide our detailed quotation.
  4. On acceptance of your quote, lead times for workshop drawings, fabrication and installation are confirmed.
  5. Using Tekla, detailing of workshop drawings is carried out by our experienced Draftsman. Following receipt of client’s approval the draftsman finalizes the “For Production Drawings” and issues them to the workshop.
  6. Procurement of materials, processing of plates and members and workshop fabrication can now commence.
  7. The completed project is now ready for the application of its protective coating. This could either be Hot Dip Galvanising, shop priming with Grey Zinc Phosphate or a combination of both.
  8. If our optional installation allowance is accepted then this will be carried out by our qualified riggers & onsite welders.

The structural steel package has now reached completion and is ready for the following trades to commence their works.
