Steelkon Projects offer a complete turnkey solution for any structural steel construction requirements. We design each structure to suit our client’s specific requirements, and thereby impart our experience and add value to our structures.
We also fabricate to pre-engineered specifications should our clients already have engineering construction drawings. By offering a complete solution, our clients can focus fully on their core business without having to engage multiple vendors to solve their steel building needs.
As part of our complete solution to our client’s steel construction needs, we provide the following services and capabilities:
- Structural engineering design (in-house registered professional engineers)
- 3D modelling and steel detailing
- Steel fabrication
- Corrosion protection
- Steel erection
- Site painting
- Roof/wall cladding and insulation
- Ventilation accessories and rainwater goods
Partnering with us allows our clients access to our wealth of knowledge gained from extensive experience in the steel building industry. From conceptualisation to occupation, our clients are afforded our full attention and professionalism.
Steelkon Projects are fully capable and uniquely located to facilitate the export of steel structures to the rest of Africa, including the Indian Ocean Islands. The exponential growth which Africa is experiencing has resulted in increased demand for our steel buildings.
All our export structures are fabricated in South Africa and then containerised and transported by either road and sea, depending on final destination.
Our rigging and sheeting crews are also able to travel and ensure quality completion of export work. However in some instances our export clients may prefer to trim this service to one of the following:
- A dedicated site foreman to supervise and instruct local riggers and contractors.
- A full rigging methodology and drawings, to be used entirely by third party contractors (with final inspection by our professional engineers).
Our steel structures are versatile buildings and are easily customised to suit any shape and size. These buildings are delivered as components and assembled on site by our rigging teams.
We are able to custom design any steel structure to whatever specific needs our clients require. The nature of our steel structures allows these buildings to be used for a wide variety of end uses, including:
- Warehouses and distribution centres
- Factories and manufacturing plants
- Shopping centres
- Farm sheds
- Churches, schools, and community halls
- Aircraft hangars
- Extrusion towers
All of our structures are designed by our in-house professional engineers who ensure that your building meets whatever location-specific design criteria there may exist. All buildings are supplied with an Engineers Stability certificate, and are manufactured in accordance with national standards.
Our steel detailers use the latest Tekla 3D modelling software and BIM technology, allowing you to virtually inspect your building before fabrication begins. The foundation concrete and reinforcing drawings are also part of our turnkey service.
We use only South African produced and certified S355JR steel for our structural sections, and our manufacturing process complies with the relevant SANS codes. Our welders are coded to the required standard, and thorough quality control checks are always in place.
Our standard domestic corrosion protection specification is as follows:
- For all hot rolled & structural sections – Mechanically wire brush and de-grease, then prime with a high build oxide primer. Thereafter two coats of enamel paint are applied on site.
- For purlins and girts – pre-galvanised to Z275
Grit blasting and hot-dip galvanising options are also available, along with any other special coating requirements.”
