About Us

Tek1 provides Steel Detailing, Structural Shop Drawings, Building Information Modelling, Structural Steel Drafting, Metal Works, and more.

Tek1 Pty Ltd was established in 2008 as a drafting house employing one person locally and two people in our back office overseas. Our initial effort was to detail precast panels for a single client in Dandenong. Things have grown significantly and we currently employ two people locally and ten people in our back office in India to service one single client.

Steel detailing began simultaneously in 2008. We have started off with Tekla version 14, employing two people locally and none overseas. Steel detailing was a rough ride through the GFC. International competition saw the prices for detailing services drop significantly.

In 2010 we set up a back office in India at arm’s length, but full control on recruitment, training, and wages. Currently we employ five draftees in our back office in India and have six Tekla licenses.

Our philosophy with knowledge-based work is that training is everything. Approval drawings are for the client to check whether they have missed something, not for them to check whether we have done something wrong. This philosophy has taken us to the forefront of high quality steel detailing where we get virtually no mark-ups on our approval drawings.

We understand the cost of phone calls from shop or site for you. Not just for you, it costs us to get a phone call from the shop or site. Hence we take care. Australia is a small market; we have to get repeat work from you. The only way we can make sure of that is give you no problem drawings and no headaches with unnecessary RFIs and queries.

The savings generated by a highly trained detailer save money and time for our clients. We do not employ anyone with less than five years’ experience in steel detailing.
