McVeigh successfully delivered key structural engineering outcomes with an efficient design delivered on time to fast-track steelwork and precast panel erection on site. This was achieved by utilising McVeigh’s award winning integrated project delivery (IPD) method for the structural steelwork and precast panels for Woolworths Meadowbrook, an innovative shop drawing delivery method recently awarded by the Australia Institute of Steel Detailers at the QLD Steel Excellence Awards, August 2014.


The McVeigh team worked closely with SteelCAD drafting to exchange data rich 3D building information models (BIM) to eliminate re-work, simply utilising the 3D model created by McVeigh to complete the shop drawing process. Not only did this process allow shop drawings to be created up to four weeks earlier than the traditional process, it eliminated cumbersome RFI’s and site issues as the structural engineer was more engaged throughout the entire construction process from design, fabrication, erection and sign-off.
