Expertise & Planning
With the small experienced team at Weldlok we are exposed and understand the process of delivering a structural steel package from the start to finish & how our clients need this to fit seamlessly within the wider construction process. This knowledge allows us to engage with the main contractor, client, engineer or architect at a planning stage to assess the feasibility or foresee the issues that may arise in a specific project. These meetings may look at further possible cost savings, staging of the project, relationship with other trades or the logistics of transportation and Install.
Weldlok has three fabrication workshop’s, fully serviced by overhead gantry cranes, allowing us to fabricate a wide range of projects. Throughout the workshops we run a natural workflow, where each worker is responsible for specific tasks, creating cost efficient and high quality steel members. Workshop tasks include cutting, assembling and welding members. Having our workshop organised into specialised tasks, gives greater accuracy and increased productivity.
Having these workshop resources employed directly within Weldlok provides a high level of control over quality and program to ensure we deliver on time, every time for our clients. It also often has the added benefit that any late changes and modifications required by our clients can be carefully managed and included if required.
Weldlok can provide a number of full time rigging crews that are capable of erecting structures of all sizes. The site crews consist of qualified riggers, crane operators and onsite welders. Our rigging crews work safely & efficiently with a number of cranes and a variety of different access machinery, including boom lifts, scissor lifts available within the Weldlok fleet. With close co-ordination between the workshop and office staff, we look to minimize, monitor and control risks and errors, and increase onsite productivity to meet deadlines. We are constantly looking to integrate tech solutions to increase efficiencies on site, including the use of tablets to allow riggers to view 3D CAD files whilst on site.
Our Steel Fabrication Certification (SFC) demonstrates our capability to manufacture products to the requirements of ISO 3834 & AS/NZS 5131 (Structural Steelwork – Fabrication and Erection). SFC provides our clients with greater certainty of product quality and assurance that they are dealing with a company who has proven procedures and personnel that, together, represent international best practice.
Our quality system covers the full fabrication process, from the materials & consumables used & their Origin, right through to the vigorous in-house and independent inspections of fabrication & welding. Our system has the capability to trace induvial steel components to steel mill certs, consumables, welders & fabricators. It also ensures we have the correct weld procedures in place and suitably qualified welders to ensure welds are completed as per these procedures.
